Edinburgh Bike Week Film Festival
- The List
- 11 June 2009
‘Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate/ Will nature make a man of me yet?’ That’s ‘This Charming Man’ by The Smiths but this is the fourth year of this increasingly popular cycle and celluloid festival in the capital. Highlights this year include a double bill of two feted shorts from the 1960s – Douglas Hickox’s musical fantasy Les Bicyclettes de Belsize and Boy and Bicycle, Ridley Scott’s first foray into filmmaking. Plus there’s 2006 documentary Klukerz about the hippie cyclists who invented the modern mountain bike.
Filmhouse, Edinburgh from Thu 11-Sun 14 Jun.
