Event Details

Chasing The Sun feature documentary

Inspiring and joyful, a love letter to the humble bicycle and all who ride one.”

Inspiring and very enjoyable! A pinch of astrophysics with a host of endearing characters.”

Chasing The Sun is the new film from 2x BAFTA-winning director Michael B.Clifford.

In 1973 a professor in a little known American university set out to discover the most energy efficient creature on earth: turns out, it’s a human being on a bicycle! The experiment has since entered into legend and is now more relevant than ever before. We explore extraordinary personal stories of ordinary cyclists chasing the sun, revealing the power of the humble bicycle to transform lives and help save the planet.

The film features contributions from broadcaster and ITV’s voice of the Tour de France Ned Boulting, author and blogger Jools Walker, Turner Prize-winning artist Sir Richard Long and 4x Mountain Bike World Champion Tracy Moseley.

Film showing followed by Q&A will be with director Michael Clifford.
