Scotsman Stuart Gunn and Australian Ben Felten became fully blind in the prime of their lives. Despite the tremendous risks, Ben now wants to break Stuart’s world land speed record and become the fastest blind motorcycle rider in the world.
Consciously and meticulously prepared, Stuart and Ben challenge both themselves as well as society’s narrow perspectives on disability. Without self-pity and only armed with a stubborn arsenal of humour, they refuse to give up on their dreams. Pushing their limits to the extreme, they try to make people see them as the whole, extraordinary human beings that they are instead of being discarded as damaged.
Dark Rider sets out to tell a powerful tale of human resilience, a hopeful celebration of the diversity of our identity and an inspiration for a wide audience, blind and sighted alike.
