Wall of Death

1983 16mm colour 15 mins doc

The film of the last travelling Wall of Death show touring the fairgrounds of Britain. The Wall of Death is a stunning piece of entertainment in which the bikes are driven up the side of a circular wooden wall and on a plane vertical to the audience above them the riders perform a series of tricks and stunts. The film is a compression of imagery garnered form a summer spent living and working with the show which features the Mesham family who have 50 years of experience touring with this attraction.
