PRESS RELEASE — Bikes vs Cars is a new, forthcoming documentary about the bicycle and what an amazing tool for change it can be. It highlights a growing conflict in city planning between the bicycle, which supports a diverse city with a human scale, and the car, which engenders urban sprawl and reliance on fossil fuels.
From Copenhagen to Los Angeles via Sao Paulo, director Fredrik Gertten explores the ongoing efforts of bicycle activists, who are fighting for their right to ride on city streets against the combined forces of multi-billion dollar auto, oil, and construction lobbies, who are determined to keep our cities car dependent.
Bikes vs Cars will be released in theaters nationwide starting Friday, December 4, in New York City (Cinema Village), Los Angeles (Laemmle Monicas) and San Francisco (Roxie). Distributed by Alive Mind Cinema from Kino Lorber.Tweet Print
