The demolition derby is one of Maine’s most cherished summer events, and the crown jewel of the annual Union Fair. Who is behind the wheel of the last car driving?
The documentary short ‘Hit ME, I like it!’ premieres Sunday, September 16th at the Camden International Film Festival and
is coming soon to SI.tv.
The demolition derby is a ritual where people make a sacrifice to some sort of god of destruction.
This deliberate wreckage is a holiday – a hall pass from being an adult, and the only time they can act out games once played in their fathers’ shops with toy plastic cars. It’s fun. The pain is a side effect, a hangover.
All drivers go in with a plan, but as soon as the first cars collide, everyone is out for blood. Only one makes it out with a running engine, a cup full of cash, and bragging rights to last the long Maine winter.
