About this project
A DRAGSTER'S DREAM
A ONE-HOUR DOCUMENTARY
PRODUCED & DIRECTED BY JEAN-DANIEL BLOESCH
What it's all about
A DRAGSTER'S DREAM is about drag racing in the United States. The film will describe the many facets of this iconic American national sport:the spectacular races - burning tires and deafening roars of engines - which bring together hundreds of participants and fans at the Mason Dixon Dragway, where the film has been shot.
A DRAGSTER'S DREAM is also about the quest for challenge and the passion of victory.It is also about risks, solidarity, friendship and other issues that characterize this compelling piece of Americana: money, rivalry and a moderate environmental impact.
Through personal stories of exploits and successes - but also of disappointments and failures - A DRAGSTER'S DREAM will present a behind the scene gallery of portraits of the heroes of this mechanical circus.It will reveal the thrill experienced by the racers and how it affects their private lives.
Our endeavor is to succeed in subtly combining entertainment, emotion and information.
Neither eulogy nor satire, "A Dragster's Dream" will recreate the spectacular side of racing and impart the enthusiasm and disappointments of the racers, the team spirit, the family commitment, the resourcefulness and perseverance

A DRAGSTER'S DREAM's shooting started in April 2011 and it was completed in December 2012. Today, we are seeking support for the last phase in the production of the film, in co-operation with editor Jean-Pascal Azais.
