Dir. Jacob Septimus & Anthony Howard
Jacob Septimus has directed videos for KRS-one, Mos Def amongst many others. Anthony Howard is an award-winning director of fine art films recognized by audiences at festivals and media such as Artforum. Howard began to make a film about New York's chapter of the Black Label Bicycle Club and found himself vying to become a member of the group. Black Label is known for living a lifestyle centered on building bikes together, riding together, eating together, and sometimes living together. Black Label is more than just a bike club or a lifestyle - it's a life. This is a rare look at a way of life that may challenge your own. Producer Fredric King of Fountainhead Films presents B.I.K.E as the first of a series of intimate portraits of NYC's subcultures, past and present.
