Together with Thalia Kino Dresden we present – Long Live Chainsaw – The new documentary from Anthill Films reveals the true story of the meteoric rise, early death and long-lasting legacy of Canadian downhill mountain biking legend Stevie Smith.

From humble beginnings being raised by a devoted single mom, Stevie’s unwavering belief not only propelled him to become the best in the world but inspired everyone he touched to believe in their own impossible dreams.

A look behind the curtain of downhill World Cup racing, Long Live Chainsaw portrays an underdog overcoming the odds to win the 2013 Overall title. Known as the “F1 of cycling”, downhill had long been dominated by Europeans before ‘The Canadian Chainsaw’ became the unlikeliest of heroes.

Long Live Chainsaw is produced in partnership with the Stevie Smith Legacy Foundation. In 2017, the foundation built a community bike park in Stevie’s hometown of Nanaimo to honour his life and legacy by keeping kids stoked on being outside and riding bikes. All proceeds from the film will be donated to the Stevie Smith Legacy Foundation to help grow Stevie’s legacy of inspiring the next generation of riders.

Two shows will be offered.

Show 1: 7 p.m.

Show 2: 9 p.m.

Advance ticket sales start Monday 11/8/2021 5pm directly at Thalia Kino Dresden.

Tickets cost 12€ per ticket.
