This screening will be a fundraiser for Phoenix Bikes, a community bike shop in Arlington, Virginia. We are both a bike shop providing affordable sales and service and a non-profit organization working to teach local youth professional & life skills through bike mechanics. Your support of this event helps us work towards our mission of ensuring that everyone in our community can enjoy biking. To learn more about our programs and shop, click here: phoenixbikes.org.
Motherload is a crowdsourced documentary in which the cargo bicycle becomes a vehicle for exploring motherhood in this digital age of climate change. The film follows director Liz Canning on her quest to understand the increasing tension between modern life and our hunter-gatherer DNA, and how cargo bikes offer a solution. As Liz meets the people behind this push to replace cars with purpose-built bikes, she learns about the history and potential future of the bicycle as the ultimate social revolutionizer.
PLEASE NOTE: For parents considering bringing their children, the producers of Motherload have noted the following: "Some kids will enjoy the whole 86 minutes, and some might get restless. There are two brief images involving blood and suggesting violence (one still photo from a newspaper article, and a few shots from The Walking Dead with zombies). Also, there is one scene involving crude language that sensitive kids (and/or their parents) may find unsettling."
