City 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.
