Kaylor and Richert switched gears to explore the life of the young tire company employee and discovered a world of deceit and ulterior motives as Snell relentlessly pursued his dream.
Contrasting the personal and professional success of Mike s would-be mentor, Charley O Connell, with the day-to-day struggles of Snell s unusual family life, Derby follows in the footsteps of the Maysles brothers as it exposes the decay of American culture pit against the backdrop of a spectator sport that thrives on the spectacle of human combat.
SPECIAL EXCLUSIVE BONUS FEATURE: MAX-OUT
Long believed to be lost, Max-Out is Robert Kaylor s stunning debut film featuring a cast entirely composed of actual convicted felons. Fully improvised with no script, the film follows the plight of an African-American ex-convict whose struggle to find work after serving time only reinforces his criminal instincts and his desire for respect in a world that offers little hope.
Code Red is proud to present this extremely rare production which represents a bold example of Kaylor s talent as an artist as it redefines the documentary as a means of therapy for its participants.
