‘Brabham’ is a feature length documentary film made for cinema. In development since 2013, the film tells the story of Sir Jack Brabham; one of Australia’s greatest sporting pioneers and the only person to ever have won the Formula One Grand Prix Championship in a car bearing his own name. Referred to as the “unofficial godfather of modern Formula One”, Brabham mentored the late Bruce McLaren and supported the careers of a generation of racing talent.
The film also sheds light on the dangers of masculine mythologies (particularly in the arena of sport) and the burden of inheriting an internationally renowned legacy of accomplishments.
