Bikes vs Cars (online screening + conversation)

Shared Planet

6 May 2020 | 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Film Synopsis: Bikes vs Cars

Director: Fredrik Gertten | Countries of production: Sweden | Year: 2015 | Length: 90 min
Language: English, Portuguese, Swedish with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

Activists and thinkers fight for better cities, and refuse to stop riding bicycles despite the increasing number of riders killed in traffic. But will dominant economic interests allow bikes to change our way of life?

From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles fighting for safe bike lanes, to Copenhagen, where forty percent commute by bike daily, Bikes vs Cars looks at both the struggle for cyclists in a society dominated by cars, and the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities moved away from car-centric models.


Beyond the Screen

“The concern is about the flow of cars. It’s not about people” –  Raquel Rolnik, urban planner
See the change you want to be in this award-winning film. Bikes vs Cars explores what sort of a world we are creating for ourselves, and what could happen if we moved away from car-centric society to a more cycling-friendly one, meeting cyclists who are challenging the current system along the way.
