If you’re like me and think that bikes can save the world–or at least have a hugely positive impact–then this film is for you. With My Own Two Wheels tells the story of four people whose lives have been deeply changed by bikes. In Africa we meet a visiting nurse who sees infinitely more patients after he acquires a bike; we also meet a remarkable woman who overcomes serious physical handicaps to become the best bike mechanic in her town. In India having a bike makes the difference between whether or not a young girl will be able to go to school; and in America the film looks at a bike shop that is started to help troubled kids stay off the streets. Beautifully made by director Jacob Seigel-Boettner, this film is a hopeful portrait of a world where bikes rule.
Cinematographer: Ian Wexler
