This award winning film (Philadelphia Festival of Film and Technology, USA; Open Encounters Festival, Wales, and Wildscreen Festival UK) follows the planning and success of a most unusual political protest. The World Naked Bike ride is a protest in favour of body freedom (being happy whatever shape, colour or size you are) and challenges our dependency on oil based fuels. This zero budget film (all transport for the making of the film was done by bike, with narration by keen cyclist Jon Snow) was screened in venues and eco-festivals around the world, watched by over 500,000 people online, and broadcast on GreenTV and the Community Channel UK.
A peaceful, imaginative and fun protest against oil dependency and car culture. A celebration of the bicycle and also a celebration of the power and individuality of the human body. A symbol of the vulnerability of the cyclist in traffic. The world’s biggest naked protest: 50+ cities and thousands of riders participate worldwide, including around 3,000 in the UK in 2011
