The real Burt Munro, inventor of the world's fastest Indian motorcycle, in his own words.
Roger Donaldson is a high profile director of movies, from
home-grown Kiwi movies, such as Sleeping Dogs and Smash
Palace, to Hollywood blockbusters such as Cocktail,
Cadillac Man and The Bank Job - not to mention The
World's Fastest Indian.
Originally trained as a geologist, he soon turned his attention to photography and advertising and then on to his real passion, film-making.
He is now based in California but returns to New Zealand regularly.
