In case you missed it.
I missed the last Bike shorts, Ken Stanek’s ongoing short film festival in Brooklyn. Even though there were two opportunities to see the movies, due to a rain date. RATS.
There was a lot of buzz about the winning film, Rachel Brown’s short about bike lanes.
It doesn’t take a great documentarian such as Errol Morris (Thin Blue Line, the Fog of War) or Michael Moore (Sicko, Capitalism a Love Story) to make a concise investigative film. Rachel just grabbed a camera and interviewed some riders of the new bike lane on 1st Ave. This is an excellent look at the debate about whether bike lanes in NYC are actually safer.
