Independent Seattle filmmaker Greg Brotherton will be screening his documentary SMOKE, SAND AND RUBBER on May 31 at 7pm at the Shoreline Community College's Theater, 16101 Greenwood Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98133.
SMOKE, SAND AND RUBBER is a documentary about a race car driver in his eighties, Mel Anthony. With his son turning wrenches, Mel gets behind the wheel of a midget for the first time in fifty-four years and takes the #12 car out on the oval around the Pacific Northwest.
Filled with his races today, vintage racing footage from the 40's and 50's, and Mel's natural storytelling, SMOKE, SAND AND RUBBER shows you that racing is a fatal disease. It might not kill you, but you have it until you die.
Film starts at 7:30. This thirty-minute movie will screen with two other documentaries about racing in the Pacific Northwest for a program of sixty minutes plus a QandA with the director, Greg Brotherton, Mel Anthony, and Dennis Anthony.
