Biker Movie Sunday: Chasing The Bullet
Welcome to Biker Movie Sunday, a weekly exploration of the world of two wheeled cinema, including an introduction by myself, and live Q&A with the filmmaker.
This week’s film, written, directed, edited and produced by Chris Zahner, explores the love affair between India and the Royal Enfield Bullet.
The Royal Enfield Bullet has the longest production run of any motorcycle having remained continuously in production since 1948, though the Bullet dates back to 1931. Originally produced in Britain, RE and the Bullet have become deeply linked to India where they have been produced for decades. Practically a national treasure, the devotion to the brand and this quirky machine by it’s riders, mechanics and builders is profound, and Chris gives us a unique look into this connection as both Royal Enfield and India change before our eyes, and enter the future.
