2014 Arquiteturas Film Festival

Luís Vieira Campos, Portugal (2014) 45′ WP

The Aleixo’s neighborhood, in Oporto, is a place of myths where society tends to see big and problematic issues. However, for many who live there, the neighborhood stands as a home, the home of always, put there near the river, with sweeping and generous views, and without further alarm. As starting points, Bicicleta has the concept of neighborhood and family, the survival defined by principles of otherness that, in such a mythologized neighborhood setting, will become natural to the human being. It is a film about the folk side of life, the sharing of a space that will mingle with the everyday life, creating an interdependence that spreads the news and creates situations both dramatic and amusing.
