Contromano (Bike Repair Shop)

  • Hollywood Theatre 4122 Northeast Sandy Boulevard Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

As Turing, Italy, home of Fiat Automobiles, emerges from an era of automobile industry, the owners of two bicycle repair shops benefit from the city's newfound interest in cycling - and recycling. CONTROMANO is and intimate cinéma verité view into two distinctly different bike shops - their wildly unique cultures, staff and approach to their craft. Profound, funny and real, the film is a testimony to the power of the bike as a tool of transformation: for the climate, for cities, and for the lives of individuals.
