The man who got America hooked on lattes bankrolled a documentary on a stock-car racetrack

Michael Dweck, a photographer making his feature film debut with a new documentary “The Last Race,” chronicling the fortunes of the Riverhead Raceway in Long Island, anticipated filming the movie would take four weeks. Instead it took five years.

“It took a month just to put a camera inside a driver’s face,” Dweck told MarketWatch at the Sundance Film Festival, where the “The Last Race” had its world premiere. “I had to build up trust. We put a lot of money and time in it.”

With the long shooting schedule and post-production occurring in Scandinavia, the doc ended up costing $500,000.
