Cycling film to be shown at the Academy of Music in Northampton.
Interested to see how bicycles can be used in efforts to care for the environment by people who know their lives and livelihoods depend on their relationship with the Earth?
Come to see Cyclovida : Lifecycle, Friday January 28 at the Academy of Music Theater in Northampton, MA.
From the press release:
Ciclovida: Lifecycle pedals alongside a group of subsistence farmers from Brazil who bicycle over 6,000 miles across the South American continent in search of natural seeds.
