The Paris-Roubaix Bike Race.

273 kilometres of cycling hell across the punishing pavé of northern France.

In 1976 the celebrated Danish film director, Jørgen Leth, tired of clichéd sports journalism, attempted to capture the spirit of this spectacular and cruel one-day race.

The resulting film, A Sunday in Hell, has become the most admired cycling documentary and a must for cycling and sports fans.

Marking the release of a new book about Leth and the film (“SUNDAY IN HELL – Behind the Lens of the Greatest Cycling Film of All Time”), we’ll be joined by esteemed author and journalist William Fotheringham for a Q&A before the screening and learn more about creativity of Jørgen Leth, his method, the riders and the iconic locations in the film.
