A group of teenagers cyclists in the UK, have adapted a confrontation between a motorist and a cyclist to create a short comedy called Cycle Lane, which was recently featured at a bicycle film festival in Kalamazoo, Michigan, as well as at the Phillips Academy Interscholastic Film Festival in Andover, Massachusetts.
Produced in partnership with White Lantern Film, the producers of the four-minute film short, give a synopsis that reads:
“Running late for a job interview, the last thing Christian wants is a heated argument with a frustrated cyclist … “
“The film is a comedy about a man trying to get to his job interview who has a near-miss with a cyclist and is heavily centred around road rage. The synopsis is as follows: ‘Running late for a job interview, the last thing Christian wants is a heated argument with a frustrated cyclist…’. The film was created by a team of 16-19 year olds as part of the BFI Film Academy based in Dorset in partnership with White Lantern Film. It has been screened at two film festivals, Phillips Academy Interscholastic Film Festival and Kalamazoo Bicycle Film Festival”, says Harry Osborn, writer of Cycle Lane.
The producers also have plans to show the film at other locations around the world.
