“With My Own Two Wheels”, a feature length documentary about the bicycle as a vehicle for change around the world is coming to Sisters. The film's co-producer, Jacob Siegel-Bottner says the goal of the film is to show how important transportation is to developing countries, or any country, and how easy problems could be solved by having a bike to ride. He gives an example of what they found when they went to India: "The boys all got bikes when they graduated from middle school so that they could get to high school, because there were only high schools at the district level, so you had to travel quite a ways to get there. And the girls weren't getting bikes, and so it was literally just the bike that was preventing the girls from going to school. It was really cool to see a non-bike related development project realize the bike was the missing link." With My Own Two Wheels weaves together the stories of five individuals from around the globe, and how the bicycle changed their lives. The film will be shown at the Sisters Movie House the evening of June 22nd; and prior to the showing, there will be a bike ride with Siegel-Boettner from Blazing Saddles to the movie house. Thee will be a second showing in the Tower Theatre on June 25th, and there will be a bike event at Drake Park prior to the screening. Proceeds from the film will go to world bicycle relief.
