The film is about Katie Rogers’ experience going “carless” for 80 days in a the notorious car-dependent city of Los Angeles.
In preparation for this special screening Redemptive Cycles is hosting a bike ride to the screening. They have agreed to bring their weekly “Trample riders” to the show. If you are interested in joining them, meet near 6:00 with your bike (wheels roll at 6:30) at Redemptive Cycles’s location downtown. There will be bike racks at the theatre along with security.
After the screening, there will be a panel discussion titled “Is Birmingham a Bike-and-Pedestrian-Friendly City?”
Panelists will include:
Kathryn Doornbus: Exec. Director of Redemptive Cycles
Abra Barnes: Founder of Magic City Bicycle Club
Hunter Garrison: Community Planner at the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham (RPCGB)
The moderator will be Mark Kelly, former publisher of Weld Magazine.
Prior to Carless in LA the short film Half Pint will be viewed.
Be prepared to ask Rogers about the difference between LA and Birmingham for a “carless” citizen.
