Description

Line of Sight is the inside story of underground bicycle racing around the world. Through the lens of Lucas Brunelle's helmet cameras viewers are transported into the wild and dangerous world of Alleycat racing: where high speeds, traffic, and pedestrians combine with riders hell-bent on victory at any cost.

Lucas keeps pace with some of the best urban riders in the world in their natural element, including Shino, Ted Shred, Chas, Jumbo, Kevin Porter, Felipe 'The King', Austin Horse, Crihs, and Alfred Bobe Jr.

More than just a montage of vehicle-dodging, fast paced action, Line of Sight also gives the viewers an insight into the community of bicycle messengers who run and participate in these underground races. Director Benny Zenga turns the cameras back on Lucas, his compatriots, and on the incredible cities where they run wild on the streets.

The end result? A world tour of the urban jungles of New York to the actual jungles of Guatemala, from the narrow maze of London streets to the Great Wall of China.

Back in my youth I had my fair share of paper rounds.. one of these was only 9 papers but took me from one side of Cambridge to the other passing through its centre. I moved fast, I was always pushed myself against the clock, swerving past unsuspecting pedestrians, hoping up curbs or undertaking slow moving cars. For 25 minutes a day, Monday to Friday I was a bicycle courier. Of course I wasn’t and had I been my life expectancy would have been considerably lower, however armed with my soft-core experience of the two-wheeled delivery industry I was not expecting to see anything particularly remarkable from lycra clad delivery boys on bikes. And I was wrong. As you lounge in your armchair imagine facing being run over every second of the film, blink and maybe you won’t make it across that intersection, sneeze and bamn a crazy dog sends you flying over the handlebars. Right from the start Lucas Brunelle’s film demands your full attention. Catapulting your senses in to outer orbit the film is undoubtably amazing for the fast past action and daredevil exploits of an international courier racing scene that visits some of the worlds capital cities. But it is equally as impressive as a documentary of Brunelle himself, so when you claw the sofa in disbelief as riders cut between two converging buses spare a thought for Brunelle following them with 4.5kg of film cameras mounted on his head.. because he has to fit through that impossibly small gap as well! My only criticism is I thought it was too long, or maybe I just can’t take that tension for that amount of time, yeah maybe that’s why I got out of the game early on!
