The festival opened with The World's Fastest Indian. Red Carpet was attended by the film director Roger Donaldson, director of THE WORLD'S FASTEST INDIAN with producer John Kelly; local indian riders and the Denver Chapter of the Indian Riders Group show up with their gang of 25 bikers and 16 classic Indian motorcycles. Among celebrities attending Claude Lelouch...

To be the fastest man on earth, that's what New Zealander Burt Munro dreamed of his entire life. And all the tinkering away on his ancient motorcycle (the Indian Scout of the title) at his small-town, little bunker of a house was aimed toward that goal. Director Roger Donaldson's 1971 documentary, Offerings to the God of Speed, followed the story of the 72-year-old motorcycle enthusiast's trip to America. "Enthusiast" is probably an understatement, by the way. The outgoing wayfarer finally made it to the Salt Flats of Utah, got on that bike and set the land-speed record of 201 miles an hour. To repeat: at the age of 72. In The World's Fastest Indian, Donaldson is finally able to fulfill one of his dreams-to make a feature out of the documentary and Munro's story. And he couldn't do better than to cast Sir Anthony Hopkins as the lively septuagenarian with the infectious laugh and infectious spirit. This are the same spirit and the same laugh that lead all sorts of folk along the way to help Munro attain his goal: a San Fernando Valley car dealer (Paul Rodriquez), a high-spirited desert widow (Diane Ladd) and a driver (Chris Lawford) who helps Munro, who's not even pre-registered for it, get into the speed competition on the Salt Flats (stunningly captured by cinematographer David Gribble). Donaldson's first feature, Sleeping Dogs (1977) was the first New Zealand film to be released in the United States; his following features include Bounty (with Hopkins as Captain Bligh; 1984), No Way Out (1987), Cadillac Man (1990), Thirteen Days (2000) and The Recruit (2003).
