Director Fredrik Gertten

Producer Margarete Jangård, Elin Kamlert

Screening as part of the New Zealand Bicycle Film Festival (NZBFF).

The bicycle, an amazing tool for change. Activists and cities all over the world are moving towards a new system. But will the economic powers allow it?

Bikes vs Cars (Sweden) 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.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, focusing on cycling issues in Wellington. Panelists:

  • Jeremy Rose (RadioNZ)
  • Dougal List (National Cycling Manager, NZTA)
  • James Burgess (Cycle Aware Wellington, President)
  • Leah Murphy (Frocks on Bikes, Founder)
