The bicycle is a symbol of progress for Rwanda, yet only one out of 40 can afford a bike.

In this film, we encounter the ingenious Alphonse, the bicycle taxi he rebuilt and outfitted, and his motto "Pimp my Bike": Rwanda's answer to the crisis.

Eric Kabera, founder of the Kwetu Film Institute and Hillywood with the Film Festival in Rwanda, has an impressive filmography that includes Africa United, an award-winning feature film about three youngsters from Rwanda who embark on an epic journey to the World Cup; Keepers of Memory, a documentary commemorating the 10th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda; Through my Eyes, a documentary film about Rwandan youth reflecting on their past, present and future perspectives; and 100 Days, a riveting film recounting the legacy of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda .

Kabera has been recognized by the Director’s Guild of America, and is the 2012 recipient of the Pan African Film Festival’s prestigious African Creative Visionary Award.

Item is available worldwide.
