Saturday night, bring the ruckus! Tonight we bring out the boldest and funniest of the 2014 Filmed by Bike movies to give you a taste of what to expect all festival long. Tonight is only one of five programs that play throughout the festival. This program includes movies that won’t be shown in other programs. Loud? Probably. Irreverent? Most likely. Fun? Undoubtedly.

Miroslav Martínez | 1:36
Pablo Correa, Noe Mendoza – Madrid, Spain
A few years ago the filmmakers came in contact with Miroslav Miklashtrvscky (Spanish name: Martínez) who shared tales of his life, from his days as first violin in the Belarus Philharmonic Orchestra to handyman. Before going to work each morning, Miroslav would always go for a peculiar little spin. When we asked him why, this is what he said: “Asking why only serves to cut the wings off of dreams in flight.” The filmmakers always dreamed of making a documentary about Miroslav but weren’t able to find him again. This is their small homage to Miroslav and to all of those who don’t ask why.
