Join Globe and Mail staff writer Alex Bozikovic and special guests for this timely screening of the 2015 documentary Bikes vs. Cars, an urgent portrait of the bicycle as a tool for urban change. Travelling from São Paulo, Los Angeles and Toronto, where cyclists fight daily for their right to the road, to Copenhagen, where forty percent of the population commutes by bike, director Fredrik Gertten meets activists and thinkers who are working for revolutionary changes and more sustainable urban environments. Beautifully crafted and inspiring, Bikes vs Cars is a powerful look at how to move away from car-centric models and toward livable cities.

Stick around for a panel discussion with Mike Layton (City Councillor, Ward 19) and Liz Sutherland (Cycle Toronto). Half of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Cycle Toronto's Bike Safety programs.

In English, Portuguese, Spanish, with English subtitles.
