Bikes vs Cars
Ever since automobiles became a household item, urban infrastructure has been based around cars. But as climate challenges become an ever more pressing issue, this one-sided focus on a highly polluting mode of transport seems more of an anachronism with every passing year. In BIKES VS CARS, documentary filmmaker Fredrik Gertten takes a closer look at precisely why politicians keep structuring modern cities around automobiles and the alarming long-term consequences of such short-term thinking.
