Bike Commuter Movie 2 PM Saturday at Channelside

"Dear Mr. Gore: A Somewhat Cinematic Correspondence Awkwardly Tracing a Circular Journey Constructed on a Warming Planet" will screen Saturday, February 28 at 2pm at the Channelside 3 venue of the Gasparilla International Film Festival.

The film was shot aboard a commuter bike in Orlando, Tampa, Sweden and Denmark.

It uses a letter to Al Gore as a vehicle to explore the relationship between cyclists and motorists while a woman attempts to ride her bicycle to work in order to reduce her carbon footprint.

The film maker will attend the screening with her commuter bike!

"I strap a camera to my bike. I teach documentary film at UCF. Hope you can make it tomorrow,!" Lisa Mills tells me in an email.
