THE MIRAGE, The greatest car you’ve never heard of.

In 2014 I was fortunate to view a work in progress version of the film “The Mirage” when director Kyle Roper and editor Alex Tyson were fine tuning their project. I enjoyed the smart, well crafted documentary and I asked Kyle to keep me informed of the progress of his first feature length directorial effort. Since then the film has had theatrical showings and recently Kyle contacted me with news that Sacred Bull Media has released it on digital and some onDemand platforms.

The tightly edited 45 minute film chronicles the absorbing story of Peter Kalikow as he pursues the dream of building his own car from the late 1960’s to the present day. Mr. Kalikow and I both share the transformative moment as teenagers when an issue of Road & Track magazine exposed us to an exciting automotive world that transformed our lives. Consequently, I found myself emotionally invested in the unfolding saga of his Momo-Mirage automobile.

“The Mirage” is “A behind-the-scenes look into the world of car design, construction and the politics behind it.” It features Mr. Kalikow and insightful commentary by automobile historian Winston Goodfellow interwoven with additional interviews, archival footage and visually exciting montages.

Sacred Bull Media presents “The Mirage” with original Music by Aaron M. Olson; Cinematography by Alex Tyson and Matthew Sanchez; edited by Alex Tyson; Produced by Kyle Roper, Nicolas Kalikow, Diane Richey and directed by Kyle Roper.
