Stranger Suggests, Hippie Division

That’s right, Bike-In.

Northwest Flm Forum announces Seattle’s Bike-In, an outdoor bike-themed extravaganza featuring films from local and national filmmakers on a big outdoor screen, live music, bike repair demonstrations, and more. The event’s free & all-ages.

Flms for Seattle’s Bike-In have been curated from NWFF’s recent Bicycle Film Challenge submissions and other existing classic bicycle films. Local films shown will include a satire about Seattle’s bicycle-friendliness, a mockumentary about the life of a tricycle messenger, and a stop-motion short shot in the style of early French cinema. Other films in the program include Louis Malle’s dazzling and impressionistic VIVE LA TOUR; the disturbingly funny 1950s bike-safety short ONE GOT FAT, and a splendid musical about Critical Mass, TINY EXPLOSIONS.

And also!

BMX bicycle dancing from Locust Dance Company, brainchild of choreographer/video artist Amy O’Neal and composer Zeke Keeble;

Music from Bicycle, the sonic art project of Seattle musician Kurt Liebert;

The Balkan-influenced dance band Orkestar Zirkonium;

And the stylings of Pillow Flight, Fight!

To quote my colleague Josh Feit, HOW exCITing!

In keeping with the critical ass theme will this splendid event take place in the middle of 99? Or maybe span the width of i-5?

Nope. Critical Mass is tonight!

Don't be such a pussy, come join in!
