When On Any Sunday premiered in 1971, it wasn’t just any movie. Directed by Bruce Brown – who also helmed surfing classic The Endless Summer – this insider look at motorcycle racing reached a wide audience that was fascinated by the heartfelt stories of real-life riders, earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature. Four decades later, On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter shows that the passion for riding motorcycles is as strong as ever.
Bruce’s son, acclaimed filmmaker Dana Brown, directs this modern take on the original, capturing what it means to ride in the United States and globally. Shot in 4K Ultra HD, the action and emotion are breathtaking: phenomenal athletes, revolutionary innovators, Hollywood stars and even visionaries who use moto to save lives. On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter journeys deeper into the humanity and excitement of motorcycle culture across disciplines – the passion for the race, the love of family and friends, and the thrill of the ride.
In 1971, director Bruce Brown’s "On Any Sunday" changed the way the world viewed motorcycle racing. Much as his 1966 documentary "The Endless Summer" provided a fascinating window into surf culture, "On Any Sunday" offered a personal, behind-the-scenes look at the men and machines of moto that thrilled audiences of all kinds. The film earned an Academy Award nomination for Documentary Feature and pioneered new possibilities for adventure filmmaking.
No one understands those possibilities better than Bruce’s son, Dana Brown, who used advancements in film technology and his own unique vision to create iconic features like surfing documentary "Step into Liquid" and off-road racing classic "Dust to Glory"
Now, as director of "On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter", Dana takes the Brown family talent for storytelling to the next level by teaming up with two industry leaders: Red Bull Media House in association with Freeride Entertainment.
Red Bull Media House produces and distributes high-quality programming that fuels inspiration worldwide, including standout commercial film releases like "Mount St. Elias", "The Art of Flight" and "McConkey". Born from the lifestyle of adventure sports and high-end action filmmaking, Freeride Entertainment’s award-winning portfolio includes previous hit productions for Red Bull Media House such as "Where the Trail Ends". Bringing his original passion to this new production, Bruce Brown is also on board as executive producer.
