A bunch of us just made a movie we think you might really like.
It's called Made in Secret: The Story of the East Van Porn Collective. Obviously, it's not entirely about bikes, but because all of us love bikes so freaking much, we tried to cram as many as possible into the story.
The story is basically about a group of arty, punky, bike-riding, anarcho-feminist rabble-rousers from East Van who decide to make their own sexy little movies to combat the patriarchial, hetero-normative, exploitive crap cranked out by Hollywood and the porn industry. They are in the process of making their latest movie--BIKESEXUAL--when a documentary filmmaker starts to make a film about *them*.
Okay, it's actually a little more complicated than that... but it's funny, it's sexy, it's political, it's genre-bending, and it's finally playing in our beloved home--Vancouver! We've had such amazing receptions at festivals around the world, but we're even more excited to finally be able to share it with folks back home.
So, we hope you'll come. It would mean a lot to us if you did. And if you know anyone else who might be interested, we would absolutely love it if you would help us spread the word. We keep meeting the coolest people through friends telling friends telling friends.
Hope to see you there!
