THE LAST RACE

A film by Michael Dweck

THE LAST RACE is an impressionistic portrait of a Long Island stock car race track as its octogenarian owners struggle to maintain an American racing tradition in the face of a real estate development boom. The film merges narrative, image, and sound in a wholly unique cinematic form to bring the audience into the world of grassroots racing culture and explore a story that subtly grapples with questions of blue collar American identity that have taken on a profound relevance in the current political era.
