Dream the Impossible and She Lives to Ride
Moto Double-Feature Film Screening

February 22
530-930pm
CAA-211, Rancho Campus
Join us for a double feature of films that explores disability and mobility, feminism, and access. Food will be provided during the intermission for attendees thanks to CCSG.

Dream the Impossible is a documentary film by Speechless Films tells the story of Talen Skeels-Piggins who was paralyzed in 2003 when a car side-swiped him and he ploughed his motorbike head-on into oncoming traffic. He was told he had just a 30 percent chance of survival and would never walk again if he lived. Today, Talan and a team of three additional disabled riders continue to strap themselves to motorbikes and race against able-bodied competitors in one of the most dangerous sports on the planet. Film will screen 530-7pm, RT 1:36.

She Lives to Ride (1995), a film by Alice Stone that destroys the stereotype of “biker chicks” by highlighting the profiles of five very different women, along with fascinating archival footage of cross-country trips in the days before paved highways. Stone’s subjects offer a lively, thoughtful consideration of what it means to be a female rider. Film will screen 8-930pm, RT 1:16.
