Kino Lorber Releases Bikes vs. Cars on DVD May 3rd

New York, NY - April 5, 2016 - Kino Lorber announces the release of Bikes vs. Cars, an award-winning documentary by Fredrik Gertten that explores the efforts of bicycle activists in cities across the world to keep the roads safe for bicyclists, and the struggle against encroaching car traffic on crowded city streets.

Bikes vs. Cars will be released on DVD on Kino Lorber's Alive Mind Cinema label, with a street date of May 3, 2016 and a SRP of $24.95. Bonus features include an interview with director Fredrik Gertten, "The Invisible Bicycle Helmet" (2012) - a short film by Gertten, and the trailer.

This critically-acclaimed documentary was a New York Times Critic's Pick and screened at numerous international film festivals. Following its world premiere at SXSW in 2015, it won the Best Feature award at the San Francisco Green Film Festival, the Audience Award at the UK Green Film Festival, Best Documentary award at Cinemambiente, and was an Official Selection of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, among others.

Bikes vs. Cars is a documentary about the bicycle and what an amazing tool for change it can be. It highlights a growing conflict in city planning between the bicycle, which supports a diverse city with a human scale, and the car, which engenders urban sprawl and reliance on fossil fuels.

From Copenhagen to Los Angeles via Sao Paolo, director Fredrik Gertten explores the ongoing efforts of bicycle activists, who are fighting for their right to ride on city streets against the forces of multi-billion dollar auto, oil, and construction lobbies, who are determined to keep our cities car dependent. Bikes vs. Cars is a cri de coeur that will have audiences reaching for their bikes instead of their car keys.
