The Bristol Bike Project

[vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/9469007]

A short documentary film about The Bristol Bike Project. Set up in December 2008 by James Lucas and Colin Fan, the project aims to provide free bicycles to underprivileged groups that would not otherwise have the opportunity to own a bicycle.

The film tells the story of the project from the perspective of two people applying for political asylum to stay in the UK, one of them from Somalia and the other from Afghanistan. In this way the film attempts to draw together the different elements that the Bike Project represents : namely cycling, recycling and giving help to disadvantaged and marginalised members of society, in this case political asylum seekers.
