From the mind of Jorgen Leth, one of Scandinavia’s filmmaking legends, comes the ultimate portrait of one of Europe’s most grueling cycling events.  Few people think of mud, sweat, blood, pain, agony and other unmentionables when something as sweet-sounding as “bicycle race” is uttered, but the annual Paris-Roubaix tour, one of professional cycling’s oldest contests, has rightly earned its moniker of “A Sunday In Hell.”  Armed with what seems like an entire French village’s worth of cameramen, and a brilliantly minimalist, Popol Vuh-esque synth score, Leth seamlessly builds the mounting tension throughout the 1976 tour’s events — from pre-game breakfast pig-outs, to the frantic opening salvos by race frontrunners, flat tires, bruised riders carried away on stretchers and beyond.  With a deft, Spielbergian flair for tracking an endless number of racers’ positions throughout the journey, Leth brilliantly pours on the claustrophobia, as both racers and their carloads of support teams hurtle towards each other in a death-defying 40MPH ballet (conducted mostly on shared small-town cobblestone roads.)  A bike fanatic’s dream documentary, and one of the great sports films of all time.
Dir. Jorgen Leth, 1976, 35mm, 111 min.

“Extreme nerdiness! Sheer joy!” – Gaby Wood, The Telegraph

“Who knew that so many stars have been gaga for bicycles?!” – Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

Philadelphia Inquirer film critic Steven Rea comes to the Cinefamily for a live presentation of “Hollywood Rides A Bike: Cycling With The Stars”, his recent book on Tinseltown’s portrayal of the pedal-power lifestyle. Having started the website Rides A Bike a few years ago, Rea had no idea that his modest obsession concerning vintage snapshots of Hollywood stars in two-wheeled transit would become such a worldwide sensation! Complete with vintage photographs, and video clips of the best bike moments from classic films, this live show is unmissable for both fans of bicycle ephemera and cinematic curiosity. The show also features a 35mm screening of Louis Malle’s classic 1962 doc short Vive le Tour!

Inspirational, funny, filled with heartwarming touches of both Americana and ‘70s coming-of-age travails, and featuring killer moments of choreographed bike racing, Breaking Away is one of the greatest underdog tales from a decade positively overflowing with them! Boasting a very believable ensemble cast of young adults discovering themselves amongst the boredom of collegetown Indiana, the film follows Dennis Christopher as a recent high school grad who, along with his three rough-‘n-tumble friends (Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern and Jackie Earle Haley), manages to avoid a violent confrontation against a group of preppie university snobs by holding a rivalrous bike tournament. Along the way, this high-spirited, subtle study in the pains of being young pulls off a tremendous balancing act between small-town romance, generation-gap comedy (thanks to hilarious interplay between Christopher and “dad” Paul Dooley), naturalistic teen angst, flights of fancy, and suspenseful cycling sequences. Dennis Christopher and Toby Yates (son of producer/director Peter Yates) will both be here at the Cinefamily for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Peter Yates, 1979, 35mm, 100 min.

There are only two undisputable truths in this life: that there is no basement at the Alamo, and that Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure is one of the funnest, funniest movies ever made. Watch the most entertaining man who’s ever roamed the Earth embark on a cross-country quest to rescue his best friend: a bicycle (natch.) Along the way, ol’ P.W. will encounter tough-as-nails bikers, giant dinosaurs, wild animals, ninjas, chubby billionaires, escaped convicts, buckin’ broncos, tone-deaf hobos, unwanted romance, fibbing gypsies, clumsy Godzillas, basement-less Alamos, vengeful boyfriends, and even an undead trucker! Some say fun didn’t exist until Pee-Wee invented it; come help us prove that adage right, as the most funrocious, funtacular cinematic funsplosion of its era finally gets its due on the Cinefamily screen!
Dir. Tim Burton, 1985, 35mm, 90 min.
