Jackie Stewart


Exempt from classification



RUN TIME: 95 minutes

Jackie Stewart is the compelling documentary film on Formula 1 World Champion, team owner and legend of the sport, Sir Jackie Stewart.

Using immaculately restored and previously unseen archive footage, the film charts Sir Jackie’s life from his humble beginnings outside Glasgow, to the rush of excitement that heralded his first F1 World Championship title in 1969, and the darker years of the early 1970s when, despite opposition from those who believed that F1 should be ‘gladiatorial’, Stewart set out to improve racing safety.

Illuminating the terrific highs and desperate lows of a life devoted to Formula 1, Sir Jackie’s story is told as never before, revealing the personal anguish of the fame, glory and success of a champion marred by tragedy, loss and sacrifice.

Written and directed by Patrick Mark, Jackie Stewart is an immersive, colourful and powerfully emotive story that transcends motorsport to explore universal themes of love, loss and human vulnerability.
