The “Motherload” team gained valuable feedback during post-production as part of Indie Review. Indie Review is a rough cut screening and feedback series created by DocFilm and KQED Presents. We are so happy DocFilm could help them during the tough stage of rough and fine-cut documentary edits, and are thrilled they are now ready to share the film with the world.

On her quest for a deeper connection in an increasingly isolated and digital world, local Marin director Liz Canning found her freedom in cargo bikes. She crowdsourced her documentary Motherload to share this experience, exploring the origins of the bicycle, its surprising social impact, its rise to popularity, and how it began to fade with the advent of cars. With indisputable joy, Canning approaches her newfound passion as a former competitive cyclist, a feminist, and a mother, stressing how empowering becoming a part of the global movement to replace cars with bikes can be. The result is a fascinating and personal look at sustainability, consumption, and how something as simple as a bike can be used to reshape the concept of transportation and freedom.
