For many Americans, the bicycle is a choice. An expensive toy. An eco-conscious mode of transportation. For citizens across the globe, it is much more. For Fred, a health worker in Zambia, the bicycle is a means of reaching twice as many patients. For Bharati, a teenager in India, it provides access to education. For Mirriam, a disabled Ghanaian woman, working on bicycles is an escape from stigma. With My Own Two Wheels (2010, dirs. Jacob Seigel-Boettner and Isaac Seigel-Boettner, 44 mins.) weaves together the experiences of five individuals into a single story about how the bicycle might change the world. We Are City is an ongoing program series highlighting ideas for making cities better places to live, presented by the Indianapolis Museum of Art and Wishard Health Services with support from Butler University Center for Urban Ecology, URBN DSGN, Big Car and The Platform.
