Downhill Racer screens tonight in the #WalkerCinema at 7:30 pm as part of our ongoing Robert Redford: Independent/Visionary Dialogue and Retrospective series. Written by acclaimed novelist #JamesSalter, this visceral, high-speed character portrait explores the drive and narcissism of David Chappellet (#RobertRedford), a US skier obsessed with qualifying for the Olympic games. He is called in by his coach, Claire (#GeneHackman), to fill the spot of an injured skier. As the race to qualify intensifies, so do the tensions between Chappellet, the coach, and the rest of the team. Click the link in bio to buy a series pass for $25 and see all the remaining films as part of this series highlighting Redford’s career as actor and director and be entered to win two tickets to the sold out Walker Dialogue with Redford on November 12.
