Bikes Vs. Cars (ONE TIME ONLY)
Bikes Vs Cars returns for a second screening! Our first showing sold out so we’re bringing the film back on Monday, April 4!
Climate change and never-ending gridlock frustrates people more than ever. Instead of whining, people in cities around the world take on the bicycle as a Do-It-Yourself solution. Road rage and poor city planning creates daily death amongst the bicyclists. And now they demand safe lanes.
It’s an uneven fight. Activists and politicians that work for change are facing a multi-billion dollar car, oil and construction industry that use all their means to keep society car dependent. We know that the world needs radical changes to save the climate and the environment, but the car industry is selling more cars than ever. Today there are one billion cars in the world. By 2020, that number will double. The film will follow the individuals around the world that are fighting to create change.
Starting at 6 PM, a number of bike organizations from the region will be sharing and educating patrons about their work as it relates to bicycles in CT and beyond.
