Bikes vs. Cars is a documentary about the bicycle and what an amazing tool for change it can be. It highlights a growing conflict in city planning between the bicycle, which supports a diverse city with a human scale, and the car, which engenders urban sprawl and reliance on fossil fuels. From Copenhagen to Los Angeles via Sao Paolo, director Fredrik Gertten explores the ongoing efforts of bicycle activists, who are fighting for their right to ride on city streets against the combined forces of multi-billion dollar auto, oil, and constructions lobbies, who are determined to keep our cities car dependent. Bikes vs. Cars is a cri de coeur that will have audiences reaching for their bikes instead of their car keys.
