About the Movie
Winner of audience and jury awards at film festivals across the country, Speedo is an original American love story set amidst the dangerous, bare-knuckled world of demolition derby. Hailed as "highly enjoyable" (Variety) and "an instant cult classic" (Film Threat), Speedo kicks up the dirt surrounding Ed "Speedo" Jager, one of the nation's top "demo" daredevils. A Long Island garage mechanic by day, the lanky-haired Speedo spends his free time at work, compulsively rebuilding his pieced-together wrecks before each competition: "It's an addiction," he says, "like nitro-methane through your veins." But as a hobby turns into an obsession, Speedo's marriage of twenty years begins to deteriorate like a junkyard Cadillac, which only fuels his raceway rages. Will a developing crush with a female track official finally bring peace to this hell on wheels? With a riveting vérité style, director Jesse Moss compassionately captures Speedo's collisions and confrontations on and off the track during one tumultuous year. From the fiery thrills of the metal monsters in action to the intimate dramas between a dysfunctional family and a budding romance, Speedo is what you'd call a high-octane crowd-pleaser!
