We're hosting the UK premiere of Sandy Carson's short film California Golde, a piece about riding bikes in California and all the hardships that come with big, hard, ambitious tours.
"The short film chronicles a completely analog tour off the grid—with no digital devices, apps, or GPS. A window to a time before, as Ron's Bikes @UltraRomance says, "we became cyborgs," it's a project he considers an "art film," blending the aesthetic of 70s surf movies with the modern-day popularity of off-road bike touring.".
The film is 11.27 mins of Kodak Golde.
Roll down to drink and chat with Sandy from 6pm, we'll screen the film at 7pm and 8pm.
You can also buy a signed copy of Sandy's cyclo-touring book California Golde for £20.00 featuring stills from the short, shot in the Sequoia National Forest on 35mm & 120 Kodak film. Stills by Ronnie Romance JR, Sandy Carson, Kyle Emery-Peck, Tenzin Namdol and Dave M Lane.
We serve craft on draught, Square mile coffee, natural wine and freshly prepared food is available until 9pm.
