LOVE LIVE LONG

When Oscar®-nominated Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas) was invited to film the Gumball Rally, the famous high-speed race in Istanbul, he decided instead to craft a raw and intimate film that exposes the effects of an unexpected sexual encounter and the high stakes of the race on two strangers. For seven days, Figgis shot in his signature run-and-gun stylethe result is a courageous new work that blurs fact and fiction and probes the unsettling consequences of infidelity, loneliness, and life in the fast lane.

About the Director(s)

Mike Figgis has helmed such “mainstream” movies as Internal Affairs and also displayed his more eclectic personal style in such films as Stormy Monday and Liebestraum. Born in Carlisle, England, Figgis lived in Nairobi, Kenya until returning to England at age eight. As a teenager, he started playing with various rock-and-roll bands and later studied music in London. In the early 1970s, Figgis joined England’s foremost avant-garde theater group, The People Show. He later formed The Mike Figgis Group and began creating multi-media productions. Some of his earliest projects won awards for their innovative blend of live action with music and film and led to the financing of his first film, The House. In 1996, Figgis achieved international acclaim for Leaving Las Vegas, which netted him Academy Award® nominations for writing and directing (he also scored the film). Other films include Mr. Jones, The Browning Version, Mara, the documentaries On Liberty and Flamenco Women, One Night Stand, The Loss of Sexual Innocence, Miss Julie, Timecode, and Hotel.
