Marinoni: The Fire in the Frame is the story of Montreal’s famed custom bicycle builder Giuseppe Marinoni. While most would be satisfied with a career as a celebrated craftsman and character, 75-year-old Marinoni is not; he wants to take a shot at setting the new World’s Record for distance cycled in one hour, for his age group.
The film follows Marinoni’s training and daily life, turning the beloved bike maker into an unlikely (and begrudging) film hero. The result is not a conventional underdog story; rather, it’s the tale of a passionate man, clearly conflicted about the documentary crew following his every move.
Funny, surprising and profoundly inspiring, Marinoni: The Fire in the Frame is a charming, uplifting movie, perfect for celebrating Canadian Film Day.

From their website:
It’s a light-hearted intervention for our national consciousness, a wake-up call to anyone who has not yet been exposed to the great cinematic stories we tell one another in this cold, vast country.
