Still We Ride!
() Director: Christopher Ryan - Andrew Lynn - Elizabeth Press, USA, 2004, English version / Czech subtitles, 37 min
On Friday August 27, 2004 just days before the start of the Republican National Convention, a massive police operation was underway. By the end of the night 264 people were arrested. It marked one of the largest mass arrests in New York City's history - and the arrested had done nothing illegal.
Still We Ride! is a documentary that captures the joyous atmosphere of this August ride before the arrests began and the chaos that followed. It recounts how this ride first started in San Francisco over 10 years ago and chronicles the police crackdown and resulting court battles in New York over the last twelve months. The movie takes on issues of civil liberties, surveillance, the power of mainstream media, and the benefits of alternative means of transportation.
The partner of the screening is project AutoMat – iniciative for sustainable transport
The film will be screen together with film We Are the Traffic!.
