Veer, the full-length documentary that offers a glimpse into Portland’s bike culture, will premiere tonight (7:30 pm) at the Hollywood Theater. The show is sold out (but I hear a few tickets will be made available at the door) and it’s sure to be an exciting evening.
So far, I’ve watched it with the filmmakers and the cast and crew and both times I’ve gotten a bit teary-eyed in parts. I love it, but being so close to the stories and the people in the film (not to mention I’ve been documenting this stuff for years now) my perspective is a bit strange. I’m very curious how the movie will come across to the general public (especially folks that aren’t “in the bike community”).
If you’re one of the lucky ticket holders, would you be kind enough to share your thoughts on the film in the comments below?
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
