Race Night is a documentary short exploring the culture and community of flat-track motorcycle racing in America’s Midwest. It follows three teenagers who, alongside their parents, pursue the dreams of the generations before them. Family and optimism are reoccurring themes in the film, exploring the relationship beyond the track and the sacrifices made for one another. Race Night tenderly depicts this subculture of small-town America with all its pain, loss, hopes, dreams, and glory.
Race Night has received the Audience Award and Best Documentary Short award at the London International Short Film Festival.
