Still We Ride: This action packed documentary is a glimpse into the shocking showdown between the monthly Critical Mass bike ride and the New York City Police Department in the months after August 2004.
The World Naked Bike Ride: Why do 250 people strip naked and cycle through London’s busiest streets on a chilly summer’s day in 2005? Narrated by cyclist and Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow, this film tells the story of a small collective organising the largest naked protest event in British history. “It’s nudity with a purpose” says ride organiser Jesse Schust, “The ride makes people smile while raising important environmental questions about climate change, oil dependency, pollution, and sustainable transport.”
