bicycle caravan -- with the theme, "Money or Life" -- travels 500 miles
across Europe to join protests in Prague against the International
Monetary Fund and World Bank. The goal is to create a mobile
utopian community which will be a living counter-example to the values
of these powerful financial institutions. The landscape is
beautiful, and bicycles possess their own poetry. But it's
always easy functioning without money. The authorities have
their own ideas about policing the intersection of utopia and everyday
life. And should the caravan succeed in getting to Prague,
there's the matter of shutting down the World Bank/IMF meeting...
Caravan/Prague, a feature-length documentary, is a first-hand account
of this journey and the historic 2000 Prague protests.
Zack Winestine rode the entire trip with the caravan, filming from his
bicycle as events unfolded. He recounts his hopes, fears, and
questions, conveying the experience of participating in a community
trying to bring about change that is both visionary and concrete.
