The Brooklyn Bugle is proud to present the World Premiere of Heather Quinlan’s new short documentary about biking in NYC – SPOKE.
Some faces, such as Ben Lee an NYC sanitation worker, may be familiar to fans of Quinlan’s last film If These Knishes Could Talk.
In SPOKE, Lee comments, “My dad escaped North Korea so he wouldn’t have to ride a bike to work. And here we are in the greatest city in the world, and people want to ride their bike to work. I don’t get it.”
So how are those bicyclists, motorists and pedestrians getting along lately?
“The streets are dominated by toxic-belching death machines in a Darwinian death race,” declares bicycle advocate Bill Weinberg.
Quinlan was granted an interview with Paul Steely White from Transportation Alternatives, but he then changed his mind and refused the interview. Calls to the DoT requesting an interview were not returned.
