Are 4 wheels better than 2? Director Fredrik Gertten (Big Boys Gone Bananas!*) investigates the daily drama of traffic worldwide and the bicycle as a tool for change. Travelling from São Paulo, Los Angeles and Toronto, where cyclists fight daily for their right to the road, to Copenhagen, where forty percent of the population commutes by bike, Gertten meets activists and thinkers who are working for revolutionary changes. Bikes vs Cars is an intimate and powerful look at how to move away from car-centric models and toward livable cities.

Steve Jobs went from computer nerd to entrepreneur, rock star, genius, and guru, and reshaped the world we live in while he was about it. But for all his accomplishments, does he really merit his near-universal acclaim and adulation? Alex Gibney (The Armstrong Lie; Going Clear) reveals the dark side of the Apple founder: his ego, ruthlessness (even when dealing with friends and loved ones), and dubious business ethics.

The charismatic Giuseppe Marinoni has been making some of the most desirable bicycle frames in Canada for decades. A competitive cyclist in Italy in his youth, he decides, at age 75, to attempt a World Record for distance cycled in one hour for his age group. Giuseppe’s determination and perseverance lead him back to his native Italy for his training and, ultimately, his attempt at the record. This is a film not only for the spandex-and-helmet crowd but for anyone who believes that a man’s reach should exceed his grasp.

Young urchin Almitra becomes fascinated with the political prisoner, a poet named Mustafa, who has been kept in house arrest for nearly a decade, and for whom her mother Kamila cleans and cooks. Mustafa spins wonderful stories which make his confinement seem like privilege, at least to the mute Almitra. But when freedom seems closest she gains knowledge of just how precious, and fragile, it really is… A passion project from producer Salma Hayek, this is surely one of the most ambitious and visually stunning animated features targeted at an all-ages family audience, calling on the talents of some of the greatest animators working in film today.
