BIKES VS CARS

Synopsis

BIKES VS CARS depicts a global crisis we must talk about: Climate, earth's resources, cities where the surface is consumed by cars. The bike is a great tool for change, but the interests who gain from cars invest billions each year on lobby and ads to protect their business. Shot in the US, Canada, Brazil, Colombia and Europe, we meet people who fight for better cities, cities with a human scale.
