STILL WE RIDE
USA 2005 | DV 40 MIN
Dir. Elizabeth Press, Andrew Lynn, Christopher Ryan
2004 in New York City, just days before the start of the Republican National Convention 264 people were arrested during the monthly bicycle celebration, Critical Mass. This crackdown in NYC was the beginning of an ongoing effort to suppress free assembly for group rides. The monthly cycle of arrests and bicycle seizures has forced the bike community into a legal battle with the city and politicized the very act of riding a bike. This screening marks the 5th anniversary of the SWR premiere at the BFF.
