Dir. Reginald Harkema Many critics have selected this film as one of the best films without distribution of the year.
This film is perfect for our opening as suggested by Indiewireâ€™s Tom Hall â€œI can’t recommend Monkey Warfare enough and, if this movie is not the Opening Night Film of NYC’s Bicycle Film Festival, there is something wrong in the world.â€
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.
