Honda will debut its fifth short-film documentary, "Racing Against Time," as part of the "Dream the Impossible" documentary series on Mon., Oct. 19.
Directed by Joe Berlinger with producers @radical.media, "Racing Against Time" takes a personal look at what defines the essence of racing and how the best work is often done when the pressure is high and competition is fierce. The film illustrates Honda's racing spirit, as Honda associates persevere to develop innovative environmental solutions. Teamwork also is shown as an integral contribution to extraordinary results. These themes are brought to life during the 7-minute film through personal experiences shared by professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, Star Trek and Transformers screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan. Stories from several Honda associates also are featured, including Sachito Fujimoto's challenge to develop the Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle.
Launched in January 2009, the "Dream the Impossible" documentary series is intended to speak to both the hearts and minds of consumers by revealing stories of Honda's corporate philosophy at work through an intimate multimedia, interactive Web site.
