TriCoast Entertainment announces the digital release of writer/director/producer Philip Selkirk’s (Castro, Bhutto: Daughter of Power, Mille Miglia: The Spirit of a Legend, Frankly… Jacky Ickx) MASERATI: A HUNDRED YEARS AGAINST ALL ODDS, a documentary exploring the iconic and luxury Italian sports automobile. Ranging from the brand’s creation of single seater Grand Prix cars, to sports and road cars, many of the masterpieces have left their indelible mark on the story of motor sport on four wheels.
Selkirk presents the brand’s impressive legacy of cars, quality and special features, while simultaneously blending together historical facts, technical information and automobile anecdotes. “MASERATI: A HUNDRED YEARS AGAINST ALL ODDS” is the first-ever comprehensive film that has been made about the marque and history of the iconic Maserati brand and includes never-before-seen rare and archival historic footage,” wrote The Auto Channel.
Starring award-winning artist and Pink Floyd drummer, Nick Mason, legendary British Racing driver, Sir Stirling Moss, and recently deceased former F1 world champion and English Grand Prix motorcycle road racer, John Surtees, Selkirk’s fast-paced international documentary follows the unique evolution and history of the worldwide automobile brand, Maserati, and its journey from a small, Italian garage to prestigious car races, shows, and as an icon of high-end luxury.
Featuring interviews from the sons of Maserati co-founders, Alfieri Maserati (Ernesto Maserati) and Carlo Maserati (Ettore Maserati), grandson of Italian industrialist Adolfo Orsi, Adolfo Orsi Jr., legendary designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and former CEO of Maserati S.p.A., Harald J. Wester, MASERATI deals with the company history and the marque’s industrial matters: from the early years, when production was concentrated on racing cars, to the advent of the first GT of the immediate post-war period through to the great classics of the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies.
Accompanied by historic and high-quality modern pictures of specific models, MASERATI is devoted to the trident’s road cars: from the A6 1500 to current production, including the extraordinary expressions of design offered by models like the 3500 and 5000 GT, the various Quattroportes, the Mistral, Ghibli, Indy to then approach the present day, touching on the 3200 GT and the current Quattroporte, Granturismo, the 2013 Ghibli and the Alfieri.
MASERATI had a special and private premiere screening at Philadelphia’s Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum. Its founder, Frederick A. Simeone: “I believe this is truly a masterpiece. Every aspect of the film was perfection. It certainly captures the spirit of this organization and gives one a prospective of the meaning of Maserati from the beginning. This is a labor of love… I assume your love.”
The documentary is finally racing onto U.S. digital streaming platforms Nov. 18th (Amazon, FANDANGO, Vimeo on Demand).
