Trailer for Bikelordz by Mikey Hart.
Bikelordz is a short documentary about the self-taught, self-invented bicycle culture which young people in Accra, Ghana have created and passed on to their younger contemporaries over time. It follows crews of these young bicycle gurus as they try and use their skills to make money, gain recognition, and live on their own terms.
All images in Bikelordz were shot in Ghana and all of the music is Ghanaian. It focuses on a young BMX movement which thrives amid adverse circumstances which are particularly urban Ghanaian but undeniably universal.
My buddy Mikey is looking for donations to help release the current film and to return back to Ghana w/bike gear in hand for the guys who generously let him film their lives. Please visit his Kickstarter page and donate what you can.
