IDFA: Amazing Online Bicycle Documentray
Last November, the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) took place. A tremendous amount of movies is shown over the course of 2 weeks. What a lot of people don't seem to know, is that a lot of the documentaries shown at the festival, from this and prior years, are to be seen online!
The south African documentary 10 Gears of Change (dir. Lloyd Ross, South-Africa, 2004, colour, video, 48min) in which the arrival of a set of used bikes forever changes the lives of eleven residents and workers of the remote Thor Vale farm in South Africa, can be seen here.
But also the non bicycle related films are worth a look, enjoy!
