new documentary film "Bikes vs Cars"

"The bicycle, an amazing tool for change. Activists and cities all over the world are moving towards a new system. But will the
economic powers allow it? Bikes vs Cars, a new film project from Swedish award-winning director, journalist, and environmentalist
Fredrik Gertten, looks into and investigates the daily global drama in traffic around the world.

Huffington Post:   How Cyclists Are Causing Cities Worldwide To Rethink Bike Safety  - interview with the filmmaker

Climate change and never-ending gridlocks frustrate people more than ever. Instead of whining, people in cities around the 
world take on the bicycle as a Do It Yourself solution. Road rage and poor city planning creates daily death among the 
bicyclists. And now they demand safe lanes. 

It's an uneven fight. Activists and politicians that work for change are facing a multi-billion dollar car, oil and construction 
industry that use all their means to keep society car dependent. We know that the world needs radical changes to save 
the climate and the environment, but the car industry is selling more cars than ever. Today there are one billion cars in the
world. By 2020, that number will double."
