USA, 1986 (2020 restoration), 91 min
CUFF is showing a Digital DCP presentation of the new restoration
A BMX racer who lives in a small town with his mother and sister is faced with a tough decision, qualify for Helltrack or take his SAT’s in order to attend college. The bicycle-motocrosser enters a corrupt promoter’s nationally televised cash-prize race in Hal Needham’s RAD 4K Restoration.
The 1986 film is synonymous with ’80s BMX culture. Shot in and around Calgary and Cochrane, Alberta, RAD was shot locally, produced independently, and ground-breaking in its innovation of story and subject. Lifelong fans quote it in online bike forums. They petitioned for a DVD release. They even bid on collector shoes and fought over out-of-print soundtracks. And they still turn out to meet its stars, both the actors and the riders.
