NARRATIVE

Award Winner: Lone Rider

Filmmaker: Luca Cipolla

It was August of 2014, riding home on an old Yamaha two-stroke scooter when a car in oncoming traffic pulled out from behind a van. Bam. Broken femur, broken wrist, dislocated hand, two collapsed lungs, nine days in the surgical trauma ward, a month in a hospital bed at home, about a year of recovery after that. I spent many an afternoon before and after the accident at my local motorcycle repair shop chatting about bikes, both as machines and as a culture. Everyone knows someone who’s gone, young or old. Yet, they still ride. Why? If you ride, you know.

EXPERIMENTAL

Award Winner: Boutonniere

Filmmaker: Paolo Asuncion

It’s been said that some motorcycles have souls, but how does a bike acquire its spirit? After watching countless moto movie cliches about how cool it is to be a biker or how bad ass a bike is (and producing their own stupid shit thereby contributing to the problem), the Handsome Asians Motorcycle Club put their heads together and decide to make a short film that focuses on an example of what it is that connects the biker to the bike.
