Event Name: The Meeting, a film by Brian Vernor presented by 21st Avenue Bicycles
Event Date: Thursday, December 9, 2010
Time: 7pm and 8:30pm (two screenings)
Description: Screening at the Clinton Street Theater on the night of Thursday December 9th for two showings, 7pm and 8:30pm, each followed with a Q&A featuring filmmaker Brian Vernor and professional athletes Barry Wicks and Adam Mcgrath.
The Cyclocross Meeting is a documentary meditation on the sport of cyclocross and the human connections it inspires around the world. The film follows pro Barry Wicks and rising star Adam McGrath to Japan where they compete with seven time Japanese National Champion Keiichi Tsujiura and the up and coming talent Yu Takenouchi.
A lushly textured paean to the hardships and joys of the excruciating sport, the film explores the challenges and personal narrative behind the pursuit of the “perfect ride.” Also featured is a rare interview and visit to the shop of 35 year veteran frame builder, Shigeru Nakagawa. Richly photographed and married with an evocative soundtrack featuring Talkdemonic, Roots of Orchis and Blktop Project, The Cyclocross Meeting is a celebratory exploration of the sport and its beauty as seen by its most dedicated riders from two sides of the ocean.
