Mount Pleasant tomorrow is slated to get an alfresco screening of a 2015 Swedish documentary that explores the friction between cyclists and car drivers in cities.
“Bikes vs Cars” is scheduled to play at Lamont Park (Lamont and Mount Pleasant streets NW) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, according to an email from organizers of the event.
A website for the film adds:
The bicycle, an amazing tool for change. Activists and cities all over the world are moving towards a new system. But will the economic powers allow it? Bikes vs Cars, a new film project from BANANAS!* and Big Boys Gone Bananas!* director Fredrik Gertten, looks into and investigates the daily global drama in traffic around the world.
Sponsored by the Mount Pleasant Main Street and the Mount Pleasant Business Association, the showing is free. But donations are welcome.
Moviegoers are encouraged to bring food, drinks and blankets to the event.
