2 Screenings of B.I.K.E. at 8 and 10

Fountainhead Films presents a special screening of B.I.K.E. Screenings. Proceeds will benefit Transportation Alternatives.

B.I.K.E. SYNOPSIS: Two filmmakers infiltrate an underground bicycle club. Driven by anti-materialism and a belief that the impending apocalypse will render cars useless and leave bicycles in power, Black Label Bike Club battles mainstream consumer culture and rival gangs for its vision of a better tomorrow. Pulling threads from Critical Mass and the wider bike counterculture, B.I.K.E. explores such themes as radical politics, personal artistic vision, global responsibility, relationships, group formation, and perhaps most prominently, pain and love.
