'Out of Nothing' motorcycle racing movie premiers at Mount Baker Theatre


"Out of Nothing," a documentary being made in Bellingham

Mark Bjorklund of Bellingham rode a specially designed Ducati when he tried to set a speed record in 2012 at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. "Out of Nothing," a documentary made in Bellingham, follows the racing dreams of brothers Mark and Carl Bjorklund, Jason Omer of Ferndale and Bill Woods of Shoreline. The movie will premier May 17 at Mount Baker Theatre.


From the Northwest to Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats, "Out of Nothing" is the true story of four tenacious men who risked everything to conquer the records of motorcycle land speed racing with homemade machines.

The film, created in Bellingham by producers Ryan Stiles ("Whose Line is it Anyway?," "Two and a Half Men") and Andrew Lahmann (P-51 Pictures), and directed by Bellingham sports photographer Chad DeRosa, is screened at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 17, at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.

The red-carpet event is a "thank you" to the community of Bellingham for support that helped make "Out of Nothing possible. The film's cast and crew will be present before and after the event for commentary and questions.

Tickets range from $10 to $11.50 advance; $13 at the door, at 360-734-6080 and mountbakertheatre.com.
