Journey to “THE GREEN HELL” and back at selected ODEON CINEMAS this February with the THRILLING NEW NÜRBURGRING DOCUMENTARY
Audiences will finally understand what it meant to drive and race on the fearsome and deadly Nürburgring, during a special one-off screening of the feature-length documentary entitled; “The Green Hell”. To be shown for one night only at selected Odeon cinemas across UK, Ireland, Germany and Austria on Tuesday 21st February this will be an experience like no other, as film and motorsport fans alike enjoy “The Green Hell” in all its cinematic glory.
Given it’s terrifying name by none other than Sir Jackie Stewart, the feature documentary film brings the three-time Formula One™ World Champion together on the big screen, with many of his peers, in describing what it meant to get behind the wheel at the Nordschleife.
Narrated by the legendary Murray Walker and SKY Sports F1 lead commentator David Croft, the film is a journey into an age in which death was common place, and never more so than on this 23 kilometre monster. Featuring interviews from heroes past and present, including Sir Stirling Moss, Jochen Mass, Stewart and Lewis Hamilton, this is a truly definitive work on the 160+ turn layout.
The documentary features extensive commentary from Niki Lauda, who knows better than most the threat posed by the Nürburgring, having cheated death and suffering life-altering injuries there during the 1976 German Grand Prix. His account of life racing around “The Ring” is truly something to behold.
Directed by Hannes Michael Schalle, an accomplished composer, writer and director, this latest project is somewhat of a passion project for the Austrian.
“I grew up in Austria at a time when Jochen Rindt and Niki Lauda were ruling Formula One and I have never forgotten what it felt like to watch these fearless racers go toe-to-toe,” he said.
“The Nordschleife typifies the danger that went hand-in-hand with racing in this iconic era of motorsport, and our movie very much places audiences at the heart of this. By putting interviews with heroes from this death-defying era alongside never-before-seen footage, we believe we will have audiences on the edge of their seats.”
The movie also resonates very deeply with its Executive Producer, Bill Lewis, who is excited to finally be bringing the movie to audiences this February.
He said: “Our film shines new light on this terrifying circuit with the help of the very men who contributed to its fame. By sitting down and speaking to these legends of four-wheeled racing, it reminds you just how dangerous that era was, especially at the Nürburgring.
“With audiences used to the more sanitised modern-day equivalent, we think it is the perfect time to hark back to a dangerous, yet golden age of the sport, and we thank Odeon for giving us the opportunity to screen our film to all of those motorsport fans. We think they will get a big kick out of it.”
