The World's Fastest Indian - written and directed by New Zealander Roger Donaldson, and starring Oscar-winning Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Based on a true story, New Zealander, Burt Munro spent years perfecting his classic Indian motorcycle. In 1967 Burt took his machine to Utah's salt flats, where he attempted the impossible, using his dream bike to set a new world's record for speed.
The World’s Fastest Indian was a hit on the world stage and tells the very inspiring story of a New Zealander who dared to dream big.
Filming for The World's Fastest Indian movie took place in Southland’s main centre - Invercargill, which played host to the film crew during the New Zealand portion of the film.
