A bike isn't finished until you put some miles on it with your bros.
Los Angeles (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
California Biker Culture Tours Europe.
The much anticipated One World Tour sponsored by Dickies kicks off on June 18th in Europe with an underground screening event in Amsterdam; finishing on July 19th with a grand finale at the world famous Ace Cafe in London. Featuring the critically acclaimed cult biker films from Los Angeles based One World Studios, this is a movie-event series both for bikers and anyone keen on learning more about the special ties between men and their two-wheeled machines.
The featured films on the twelve city tour are the award-winning cult phenomenon Choppertown: the Sinners and the just-completed follow up film Brittown. Widely considered to be the most important biker documentaries in over thirty years, the One World Tour will be the first time many in Europe have had a chance to see these seminal films set in the real world of Kustom Kulture. Producer/directors Scott Di Lalla and Zack Coffman will also be touring with the films offering fans to sit down and enjoy a pint with the creators. Coffman describes the events as, "Screenings of the film will be more like cultural events than just traditional sit-down screenings. We want people to bring out their bikes, eat good food and enjoy the free giveaways from the sponsors…and of course enjoy the films! 10 countries in five weeks...it's gonna be a wild trip." DiLalla adds, "We want to thank our fans and friends without whom we never would be able to continue following our dreams. See you on the road." (Breaking news: Kutty Noteboom of Choppertown will also be in attendance in Germany!)
"Choppertown" focuses on a renowned group of California bikers known as the Sinners. Produced in 2005 with a stack of credit cards, this award-winning documentary heralded a return to the values of a simpler time. The anti-Hollywood picture shows the true story of a young Sinner and his biker brothers as they help him build an old-school custom bike from the ground up. Not interested in the newest expensive parts, these are real guys who use their hands to make a part when there's no money to buy it. Their motto: "A bike isn't finished until you put some miles on it with your bros." Featuring several well-known Sinners such as rocker James Intveld, insane skater Jason Jessee, custom builder Cole Foster, and Kutty Noteboom.
"Brittown" is also set in California but with one major difference: Triumph stars instead of Harley - and is all about one group's obsession with motorbikes from England as seen through the eyes of a gifted mechanic named "Meatball" who restores vintage Brit bikes, runs the Hell On Wheels bike shop, competes in vintage races a la Steve McQueen, and is the lead-singer of rock band Smiling Face Down.
Screening in Europe for the first time, Brittown accompanies Meatball in his workshop, on the road, and at bars and pubs - taking an insider's look at the Brit bike scene in So Cal.
The events are for bike enthusiasts, indie film lovers, and anyone with a curiosity about a world not usually seen. This is the perfect place for those wanting to talk skoots or talk film and offers a unique opportunity to meet with the producer/directors Zack Coffman and Scott Di Lalla, who will be accompanying the road show personally.
