MOTHERLOAD – Free ENCORE Virtual Screening
July 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
About this event
Monadnock International Film Festival and Monadnock Food Co-op are hosting a FREE, ENCORE virtual screening of MOTHERLOAD, an award-winning crowd-sourced documentary in which the cargo bicycle becomes a vehicle for exploring motherhood in this digital age of climate change. The film follows director and new mother, Liz Canning, on her quest to understand the increasing tension between modern life and our hunter-gatherer DNA and how cargo bikes offer a solution. As Liz meets the people behind this push to replace cars with purpose-built bikes, she learns about the history and potential future of the bicycle as the “ultimate social revolutionizer.”
This event is FREE, but you must register on this page. Space is limited to 50 people. On the day of the screening, we’ll email you the link to access the film and live Q&A.
