Runtime: 81′

Bikes vs Cars is a documentary about the bike and what an amazing tool for change it can be. It highlights a conflict in city planning between bikes, cars and a growing reliance on fossil fuels. 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.

The film was followed by a Q&A with:

  • Pascal Smet – Minister of Mobility and Public Works, Brussels Region
  • Jérôme Pourbaix – Director of Regional Offices and Services, UITP
  • Frédéric Saliez – Human Settlements Officer, UN-HABITAT
