El Diablo. The Last Kilometer is short film, a re-editing from the feature length film “L’Ultimo Chilometro” (The Last Kilometer) specially created for the Bicycle Film Festival 2013. The Bicycle Film Festival starts this time next week! If you’re near or in New York check it out.
“L’Ultimo Chilometro is a film totally dedicated to a passion, an emotion, a sport: Cycling. The movie follows the story and an entire cycling season of “the old” Davide Rebellin, 41 years old and still fighting in the peloton after many victories and scandals, and “the young” Ignazio Moser, promising 20 years old son of cycling champion Francesco Moser. The famous italian journalist Gianni Mura, Tour de France correspondent since 1967, helps us to discover what cycling was and what it has become today, after doping scandals, passion, epic, richness and decadence. Finally, a bit of madness and insane joy is brought into the movie by Didi Senft, better known as “El Diablo”, a living and metaphorical symbol of all cycling fans, with their passion and their enthusiasm. L’Ultimo Chilometro is a portrait of cycling.”
