STREET FIGHTER + MONKEY WARFARE
MONKEY WARFARE
Canada 2006 | DV 77 min.
Dir. Reginald Harkema
Many critics have selected this film as one of the best films without distribution of the year.

Dan and Linda are two ex-activists in Toronto who live a low-key lifestyle of selling junk online and riding their bicycles. After their pot dealer gets busted, they meet the young revolutionary Susan, forcing Dan and Linda to question their relationship and face their turbulent past. “Monkey Warfare” was well received at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival winning the Special Jury Award.

BIKE CAR
USA 2006 | DV 65 min.
Dir. J.T. Fountain
Travis Parker, Louie Fountain and Scotty Wittlake approached travel differently last winter. Putting snowmobiles and 4×4′s to shame, the crew traveled across the great Northwest in a bikecar: a four-person, pedal-powered vehicle that was the vessel of the adventure – part bike, part car. Pulling a trailer with snowboards and gear, the crew pedaled in search of snow for one month.

“Bikecar” is a one-of-a-kind documentary that brings a new perspective to travel, adventure and snowboarding.

Every luscious shot in this film exudes love of the bicycle. It follows the workers of Santa Cruz Bicycles, from the factory to the trails, streets and track.
The track shots are so beautiful they would inspire any street fixie rider to head for the local track. Legendary skater Rob Roskopp founded a company on passion for the bicycle. The workers of Santa Cruz share this passion through playing and working together.

AYAMYE*
GOODNESS, KINDNESS, GENEROSITY
USA 2007 | DV 40 min.
Dir. Eric Matthies, Tricia Todd
In Ghana, a rural village eagerly awaits a shipment of recycled bicycles from the United States. The majority of the bikes are sold in a colorful frenzy to pay for shipping costs, while the best bikes are set aside to take to the village.
Ayamye* chronicles the lives of Nurse Letitia and Seth before they get the bicycles and again one year later. These two individuals are very different from each other, the common thread being the need for transportation and the wish for positive development in their community. “Ayamye” is a moving, life-affirming film that proves sustainable solutions to crisis are not always complex.

KLUNKERZ
USA 2006 | DV, 8mm, 16mm, DigiBeta 88 min.
Dir. Billy Savage
The history of the modern mountain bike. This film documents the rise of a huge cultural movement that was pioneered in Marin County on the trails of Mt. Tamaipais. Mountain Biking was born out of the creative scene surrounding the San Francisco Bay Area hippy and rock world of the sixties and seventies. This film features the characters of this day such as Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze, Charlie Kelly and Alan Bonds. The races began amongst friends getting stoned and partying and flying down the mountain on their pre forties bikes with fat tires: “Klunkerz.” These fun escapades turned into a sport that changed and maybe even saved the bike industry. Now all over the world you see people riding mountain bikes.
