The final instalment of The Night series, created by Vice Sports for Samsung, follows downhill racing champion Katy Curd careering through the Forest of Dean on her bike after the sun has set. Shot by Nick Ahlmark, a documentary film maker who has worked for the likes of Al Jazeera, Ride The Night: Downhill into Darkness sees riders speed along narrow tracks as the forest emerges from and fades into the inky black of the night, illuminated by the lamps mounted on handlebars. Drones speed along, capturing the riders as they race along tracks, slashing through the darkness as the trees and foliage are reduced to a blur. “You can’t just rely on your sight. You rely on your natural instincts,” says Katy. “It brings on different emotions as you test your skills in a different way.”
The film is part of a series of commissions that captures the experience of participating in sports at night. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and S7 take high quality pictures even in low light, thanks to a brighter lens and larger pixel image sensor. Other films in the series feature British champion surfer Alan Stokes riding waves in the dark at Fistral Beach in Cornwall and skaters taking to the streets in a deserted, nocturnal London.
