Official film description...

Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: climate, earth's resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos.

The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.

Further reviews...

“Breezy, intelligent, diffuse but uncluttered, Fredrik Gertten's documentary “Bikes vs Cars” could be called a tale of congestion-plagued cities.” – New York Times

“Gertten has put in the time to capture how these cities' unique scenarios unfold to mount a compelling case against the powerful automotive, oil and construction lobbies.” – Los Angeles Times

“It's not that anyone is opposed to bikes; they're opposed to anything that might threaten the profits of car manufacturers and oil companies.” – Village Voice
