Undeniably Young: Nora Young & the Six-Day Race

In Release - Evoke Films


It's 1936 and 19-year-old Nora Young is a multi-sport champion, brimming with trophies, talent and an indomitable zest for life. Breaking into the surreal world of men’s Six-Day racing, she seizes an opportunity to become one of few female cyclists ever to compete on a velodrome track. Combining animation, archival materials, and interviews with Young (age 95) telling her story, UNDENIABLY YOUNG finally gives a groundbreaking, nearly forgotten athletic hero her rightful place in history.
