This documentary depicts a global crisis that we know we need to deal with: climate, resources and cities consumed by the car. The film takes us to cities around the world, from congested places such as Los Angeles and São Paulo (where commuters average three hours in traffic daily), to Copenhagen, where 40% commute to work on bikes. Sequences in Toronto focus on the controversial former mayor Rob Ford, who was elected on a popular platform to “Stop the War on Cars.” We meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities and who refuse to stop riding bikes despite the increasing number of riders killed in traffic. In English and in Portuguese with English subtitles. Writer/Director: Fredrik Gertten. (Sweden 2015) 91 min.
