Bechdel Tested returns for the final edition of our second season: Women in Cycling! We’ll be screening the critically acclaimed Wadjda, the first feature film ever directed by a woman in Saudi Arabia, the brilliant Haifaa al-Mansour. Preceding the film will be a panel discussion focusing on women in cycling featuring some of the most vocal advocates of gender justice in the Toronto cycling community: Yvonne Bambrick (moderator — author of The Urban Cycling Survival Guide, co-founder of Cycle Toronto), Siva Vijenthira (former manager of education at Cycle Toronto, biking editor at Spacing, and founding advisor of Progress Toronto), Nancy Smith Lea (director of Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT)), Hyedie Hashimoto (creator of the Toronto Cupcake Ride), and Claire McFarlane (founder of The Bad Girls Bike Club).

We'll also have fabulous prizes, special cocktails by Swan Dive, and mingling with other cinephiles, cyclists, and feminists!

Doors: 6:30pm
Panel: 7pm
Film: 8pm

About the film:
A rebellious Saudi girl (Waad Mohammed) enters a Koran recitation competition at her school and hopes to win enough money to buy her own bike. Wadjda is a movie about freedom — and nothing represents freedom with the metaphoric simplicity and symmetry of a bicycle.

2013. 98 minutes

Bechdel Tested is executive produced by Erica Shiner and co-produced by Michal Stein and Cayley James.
