You Never Bike Alone
- 80 min
Documentary looks at the development of vibrant bike culture in Vancouver, Canada, and how the city's self-propelled population mobilized to promote the bicycle as a viable for of transport. You Never Bike Alone shows how the foundation for today's burgeoning bike scene in the city was set in the early Nineties when cyclists risked arrest by cycling en masse to publicize unsafe road conditions and rides of the mid-Nineties which were sometimes characterized by arrests. Rides with mutant bike collective MC3, The Wholesome Undie (an underwear ride where cyclists protest the Molson Indy), and the World Naked Bike Ride, provide amusing and entertaining spectacle, while film also shows how cyclists are dealing with road rage and the political struggle at municipal and provincial levels to create a more livable city.

Youth Authority: California
- 44 min
In the 1980s, long before Snoop Dogg and the rest of his crew had found success, they were Westside gang members living a street lifestyle that often included run-ins with the law. Snoop himself spent time inside California's notorious "Youth Authority" - the CYA - which in recent years has come under court order for abusing and failing to rehabilitate youth. Bigg Snoop Dogg's Youth Authority: California will tell the story of the CYA, gang activity, and youth violence in a documentary based on Snoop's story (as told by Snoop himself) and the stories of those youths still in the struggle.
