**We are postponing this event unitil further notice. You can now stream MOTHERLOAD on Vimeo OnDemand but we hope that once we're able to gather as a community again that we can come together as a community to watch this film at a large fun-filled event.**
Join us for a fun evening with documentary filmmaker Liz Canning as she joins us for the Eugene debut of her movie, MOTHERLOAD; an award-winning crowdsourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote.
With cargobikes making up an important part of Eugene's legacy (think Burley, CAT, CETMA & the Bike Friday HaulaDay) you might even spot some Eugene people and bikes in the movie.
Filmmaker Liz Canning cycled everywhere until she had twins in 2008. Hauling babies via car was not only unsustainable but took the freedom and adventure out of life, and Liz felt trapped. She Googled “family bike” and uncovered a global movement of people replacing cars with cargo bikes: long-frame bicycles designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads. Liz set out to learn more, and MOTHERLOAD was born.
She'll be joining us for a special showing with a Q&A after the movie as well as some other special events in town throughout the weekend.
