and about director Peter Sutherland:
Peter Sutherland is a NYC-based filmmaker, photographer and artist. He is famous for his documentaries and for portraying the things that interest him personally, like youth culture, urban culture, graffiti, skateboarding, and of course bikes. Peter grew up in rural Colorado, where all the cool kids were into bikes. Soon he was too, and he loved the expressive element of the sport. Later, Peter got into filming and in 1998 when he first moved to New York he did not have a job or any friends, and needed to put his energy into something. He bought a Sony VX 1000 video camera and started filming skateboarders, and he was hooked right away. One of his most famous movies is Pedal, a fast-paced documentary about the bicycle messengers of New York and the dangerous lives they have. His images have been featured in iconic magazines such as Vice, i-D and XXL.
