Catching the Paris Metro is like being herded to the slaughter in a cattle car. So why don’t the Parisians break free and get a bike?
This video is part of a global series of films documenting the stories of the world’s One Billion Bicycles, filmed and edited by independent filmmakers Bojun Bjorkman-Chiswell and Sarah Cowhey.
Created by the filmmakers to unearth the stories of the world’s bicycles and its importance to humanity, the film series journeys across 5 continents, 20 countries and over 140 interviews with high-powered ambassadors in Bejing through to a man in a bicycle wheelchair in the dusty streets of Mozambique.
The films reveal the never seen before stories of people, around the world, who use the bicycle for work, transport and health, and their fight for their right to road space.
The project continues to give voice to the bicycle users of the world and the injustice, sabotage and corruption they face simply because they choose to get about freely.
