A film to celebrate Bike to Work Week
- Friday June 3, 7pm, Young building, room 216, Lansdowne campus
Everyone welcome—admission is by donation.
You Never Bike Alone is an 80-minute documentary looking at how cyclists are building critical mass in Vancouver, and changing the face of the city. It is the story of how a social movement grows and the people behind it.
Drawing on footage filmed in the city over the course of a decade, You Never Bike Alone captures the highs and the lows of riding a bike in Vancouver, from the early "Tame the Lions" rides to the wild spectacle of Vancouver's freak bike collective and the World Naked Bike Ride in more recent times.
As well as a humorous and entertaining look at cycling in the city, the movie looks at the implications of transportation decisions made by politicians at municipal and provincial levels and asks whether we are up to the challenge of making a truly liveable city.
"It isn't didactic, nor proselytizing, but blunt and straightforward. The people interviewed seem so sane, so reasonable and so utterly practical that I wanted to ride off in the sunset with all of them," reports Dorothy Woodend of The Tyee.
After the film, a discussion will be facilitated by the director of the film, Robert Alstead.
This Cinema Politica evening is sponsored by The Greater Victoria Cycling Coaltion, Camosun's School of Arts and Science, Students for a Democratic Society, and other student groups on campus. For more info, contact English instructor Jeanne Iribarne at email@example.com.
