Product Notes

In 1971, filmmaker and racing fan Roman Polanski spent a weekend with world champion driver Jackie Stewart as he attempted to win the Monaco Grand Prix. Polanski was given intimate access to Stewart's world for three days, both on the track and off. The result was WEEKEND OF a CHAMPION, an extraordinarily rare glimpse into the life of a gifted athlete at the height of his powers. Now after forty years, Polanski and Stewart revisit the film, looking back with both nostalgia and the temperance that comes with age. Featuring a newly-filmed postscript, WEEKEND OF a CHAMPION is here presented as both a timeless relic of the racing world in the early 70s and a fond tribute to the enduring power of the sport.
