In advance of the 105th Dipsea Race on June 14, Bay Area filmmaker Rob Nilsson will present a rare screening of his 1986 drama starring Bruce Dern as a 44-year- old runner who, after a 20-year ban for a financial indiscretion, tries to recapture his old glory by running the Dipsea in Mill Valley. After declaring “The film is paced like a race” and that it “conveys the excitement of running,” The New York Times continued: “The director, Rob Nilsson, and the cinematographer, Stefan Czapsky, have composed exquisite shots of some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States.” Few audience members are likely to disagree! Also starring Pam Grier, John Marley and Bill Bailey, On the Edge is a gripping sports drama from one of our best independent filmmakers. (US 1986) 91 min. plus discussion.
