Brunswick for Bikes is bringing the documentary film MOTHERLOAD to Brunswick!
MOTHERLOAD is a crowdsourced 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 revolutioniser.”
Conflict arises when characters encounter cultural resistance, in particular, bikelash focused on women and mothers. MOTHERLOAD draws connections here to the struggle of cyclist Suffragettes and to women's seemingly endless fight for bodily autonomy.
