BIKES VS CARS (Sweden, 2015, 88 min.) Washington, D.C. Premiere
Traffic gridlock around the world is frustrating people, wasting their time, polluting the air and contributing to climate change. Director Fredrik Gertten (BANANAS! and Big Boys Gone Bananas! ) investigates the daily global spectacle of traffic and looks for solutions. Following bicycle activists' crusades to foster meaningful change, the film documents the struggle for bicyclists in a society dominated by cars. From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, fighting for safe bike lanes, to the city of Copenhagen, where forty percent commute daily by bike, BIKES vs CARS considers the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities made room for bicyclists. Directed by Fredrik Gertten. Produced by Margarete Jangard and Elin Kamlert. Executive Producer: Chris Paine.

Welcome by Dr. Matthew Scott, President, Carnegie Institution for Science. Introduced by Dr. Peter Fox-Penner, an internationally recognized expert on energy markets and policy. Discussion follows screening with filmmakers Margarete Jangard and Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car, 2006; Revenge of the Electric Car, 2011).

Thanks to the Reva and David Logan Foundation for its support of this evening.
