The life and death of Formula 1’s greatest racer
MILLERTON — Getting in the spirit of the vintage race weekend at Lime Rock Park, The Moviehouse in Millerton teamed up with the track to present a special one-week run, from Sept. 2, of the documentary film “Senna” which is currently in a limited, major-markets only release. Directed by Asif Kapadia, the film tells the story of legendary Brazilian racer Ayrton Senna da Silva, who won the Formula One world championship three times before his death at age 34 while racing in the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.The Moviehouse held two showings of “Senna” on Saturday, Sept. 3, in conjunction with Lime Rock Park’s Historic Festival. Both shows sold out. Before and after each screening, a panel of well-known racing personalities took part in a question and answer session with audience members. The panel included Skip Barber, Sam Posey, Bob Sharp, Dave Jones (who raced against Senna) and Kevin Hudek, who was Senna’s public relations manager for three years.
