Próxima 5ª-feira, dia 26 de Abril, às 19h, há Bicinema, e vamos ver aqui no ateliê o premiado documentário sobre o movimento Auto*mat, da República Checa. O trailer (não se preocupem, o DVD tem legendas em inglês):
Traffic in contemporary Prague. Everyday accidents, traffic jams, unbreathable air. The police give out fines for wrong parking, to no effect. In the middle of it all, a group of activists emerge who try to persuade the municipal authorities to set the Czech capital finally on the path of more human-centered development.
The award-winning documentary movie Auto*Mat (winner of Czech Documentary of the Decade Award) offers multiple insights into Czech car culture, which rules over all. The documentary sharply contrasts this with the inability of the city officials to organize even a few simple bike lanes. We see tyre-burning feasts or a megalomaniac road-tunnel blessed by a priest (in a predominantly atheist country). The movie challenged many assumptions and prejudices, generating wider public discussion about the role of public spaces and transport in the city. If we want to change something, we have to start thinking about changing ourselves and act!
Podia ser Lisboa. E como Lisboa também precisa de um, ou vários, “Auto*mat”, resolvemos ajudar a inspirar a malta e passar este documentário. 😉
Marquem na vossa agenda, 5ª-feira ao final do dia, no ateliê da Cenas a Pedal, aqui.
