A post-screening discussion will follow the film.


A microcosm of some of our most pressing global issues of climate, transportation, and urban living, Bikes vs Cars is about far more than just learning to “share the road.” In a car-centric world, what place does the bike have as a tool, not only to get around, but to make the world safer, cleaner, and better to live in? The documentary prompts an important debate about the ideals and interests of the private car industry, as well as our cultural worldview on human transportation. In English, Portuguese, and Spanish with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)

This screening is sponsored by the Kelley School of Business, in conjunction with the Kelley Undergraduate Common Read Program, and IU Cinema. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
