Event

Veer
Veer explores America's fast-growing bicycling culture by profiling five people whose lives are inextricably tied to bicycling and the bike-centric social groups they belong to. The film follows these characters over the course of a year, offering a behind-the-scenes look at their personal struggles and triumphs. Veer examines what it means to be part of a community, and how social movements are formed.


"As funky as a chrome-plated unicycle and as instructive as a Bike to Work Week seminar, this tasty slice of Pacific Northwest cycling culture should fascinate anyone who prefers life on two wheels.

Portland director Greg Fredette obviously knows his audience well and packs this fascinating doc with enough bike politics, culture, anarchy, art and people-profiles to make it a must-see for anyone who cares about bikes and their ever-increasing place in our daily lives. But if you think cycling is just a trend that will pass as soon as gas prices drop (ha!), this probably isn't the movie for you, then again, maybe it should be".
Monday Magazine


"In this breakthrough doc by Portland residents Greg Fredette and Jason Turner, get ready for a wild ride through the growing underground bike culture of their hometown and America at large, the awesome world of Veer is nothing if not colorful at every turn. Grab your helmet. But be forewarned your old ten-speed is going to seem a little inadequate".
Victoria Film Festival


"(Veer) has the perfect scale and polish for its subject, it's a frequently heartening portrait of what there is to love, and love deeply".
The Oregonian


"Veer gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the raw emotions, hard work, creativity, and silliness that defines bike culture. With minimal narration, the film expertly balances multiple story lines, allows characters to develop themselves, and succeeds in sharing a message that should resonate far beyond Portland".
Jonathan Maus, BikePortland.org
