Screen Social #38: RIDE – The Event


VIDEO: ‘Bicycle’ – directed and animated by Dana Sink.

 

Presenting a medley of film content from global independent creators and rising talents along with a burlesque performance, our latest Screen Social:RIDE was a special one paying a tribute to bicycle lovers!

Screening hardcore documentaries about unicycling, award-winning animations, and inspiring cycling adventures to different places around the world – we learned about the Cuban bicycle culture through Kauri Mutlimedia’s ‘Havana Bikes’, followed Chris Lawson’s London to Paris ride with cycle hire bikes and explored the beauty of hill climbing with Thom Heald’s ‘Up Up Up‘.

The evening started with Thibaut Grevet’s Red Bull documentary ‘Epecuen’. Featuring renowned trial bike rider – Danny McAskill, Grevet’s piece took us a long ride into the corners of an Argentinian forsaken town. Later on, we screened some more of Thibaut’s work including ‘Vans Ft. Matthias Dandois’ and his short ‘Ride with us’ for STRAVA.

One of the submissions and highlights of the night was Torill Kove’s and Lise Feanly’s Academy award nominated short ‘Me and my Moulton’ – an animated story a 7-year-old who asks persistently from her unusual parents to get her a bicycle. Kove has been nominated before for an Oscar and received one for her animated short film ‘The Danish Poet’ in 2007.

Other submissions included Sam Rowland‘s ‘Athens: Fast Friday’, Segolene Ragu’s archival footage ‘Riding’ and the hardcore ‘Extreme Unicycling’ by Tristan Anderson & Jessie Ayles.

As part of Screen Social’s schedule, the lovely Alex Fanny Davis from Look mum No hands! took the stage and heat up The Book Club‘s basement with her Suffragette bicycle burlesque routine:

Other screenings included: Chris McCoy & Adam Neustadter‘s ‘The Bicycle’, Maia Media‘s ‘Megamoon’,  Garett & Garett‘s ‘Unicycle Caving’, Spinlde‘s ‘James Golding – Distance over Time’, Guillaume Blanchet‘s ‘The Man Who lived on his Bike’, Richie George‘s ‘Maurice Burton- The Cyclist’, Stephen Meierding‘s ‘Bicycle Sounds’, Raoul Paulet‘s ‘BIKES- Crashing Into Love’, Vida Vega‘s ‘Tempo-Bike’, Marcel Piekarski‘s creative typography ‘Type – Cycle’, Amir Porat & Mor Israeli‘s ‘Cycle’Tack Studio‘s ‘Le Coq Sportif: Day & Night’ and ‘BÖIKZMÖIND’ by Gavin Strange.

We’d like to thank the filmmakers and everyone who joined us recently at the The Book Club and supported Shelter.
