Vancouver-set documentary You Never Bike Alone screens as part of the Moving Pictures Film Festival.
Drawing on footage filmed in the city over the course of the last decade and through interviews with people from all backgrounds, feature-length documentary You Never Bike Alone captures the fun, the road rage, the camaraderie, and the freakiness of riding a bike in Vancouver.
You Never Bike Alone charts the history of Vancouver's Critical Mass rides from the early “Tame the Lions” rides, that helped bring about better bike facilities on the Lions Gate Bridge, to the wild spectacle of Vancouver's freak bike collective and the World Naked Bike Ride in more recent times.
As well as a humourous and entertaining look at cycling in the city, it looks at the implications of transportation decisions by politicians at municipal and provincial levels and asks are we up to the challenge of making a truly liveable city.
Tickets $9 ($2 discount to Moving Pictures members).
