“Afghan Cycles is a feature documentary about a new generation of Afghan women pushing gender and cultural barriers by riding bicycles.
The film follows a diverse and growing group of women who are risking their honor and their lives for the joy and liberation of riding a bicycle. From rural cycling clubs to a National Cycling Team, these women are ushering in a new era for a country slowly awakening to global influence and inevitable cultural change. Intertwined, their stories lead us on a journey into a country of beauty and contradictions, through decades of upheaval and repression, to today; their innocent act of revolution a harbinger of a brighter future for women in traditionally male-dominated societies around the globe.”

“Bicyclists of Baltimore started out as a social media project to celebrate the diversity of bicyclists in Baltimore City. After experiencing the uprising in Baltimore this past May we wanted to contribute something even greater to the unification of our community. By creating a documentary film we not only celebrate individuals, but bring them together in a visually compelling narrative that transcends social and economic barriers.
We follow the lives of bicyclists from all corners of Baltimore exploring how the increase in cycling in Baltimore helps to shape the city as a whole, and strengthen our different communities. We examine the ways in which Baltimore, a city with deep socio-economic and racial divides, can become united through the use of a human-powered vehicle.”
