• Mobile Cinema riding through Africa

    CINECICLETA

    Cinecicleta is a cultural, social and sustainable project.
    Its starting point is Madrid and the destination Madagascar,
    and it will take two years to complete. During this time
    we will cross Africa, always on a bicycle, with a traveling cinema
    on a trailer. We will be showing films, shorts and documentaries
    for the places we visit during our cycle tour.

  • CINECICLETA - THE MOBILE CINEMA

    the blue door

    Two bikes loaded to the maximum. On the Carry Freedom trailer is a aluminum
    box carrying the cinema equipment including the beamer.

    THE LONG ROAD

    It's a long road through Africa to the next town
    and the next movie show. Sometimes the road is
    asphalt and sometimes the road is just a muddy
    path across a barren landscape.

    SHOWTIME

    With a pedal powered beamer. one person pedals enough electricity to power the beamer. And the show can begin...

  • The road to Madagascar

    Under the rainbow

    This rainbow over the heavily loaded bicycle. The journey is long and the location is remote, so you need to carry everything you need with you. That's why you need a trailer.

  • The mobile cinema bike trailer

    CINECICLETA

    The Carry Freedom trailer being used here has been modified by Isabelle and Carmelo to suspend the box carrying the beamer. While working well for the precious load it was hard work for the hitch. We need to take this idea further...

  • you need a place to sleep

    THE HOTEL ROOM

    The terrain is hard, everything from jungle to desert or mud paths to flooded fields. And the ride is hard, so sleep is a luxury to be appreciated.

    THE TRIP

    Two years is the time set aside for the trip. Two years of waking up each day to a new adventure. Two years of not know where you will sleep the next night. Two years of adventure, meeting people and making friends.

WHAT AN EXPEDITION!

From Madrid to Madagascar. A two year journey with two bikes, a trailer and a pedal powered cinema. This what the two adventurists wrote us:

We are happy to introduce you our project CINECICLETA.
This project is formed by cinema-lovers and bike-enthusiasts Isabel (31, Castellón) and Carmelo (45, Madrid) (SPAIN), a pair eager to share and travel.

 

CINECICLETA is a cultural, social and technologically sustainable project that we’ll be developing in rural areas of Africa for an estimated two-year period.

 

This bike-crazed journey will begin in Madrid, crossing Africa all the way to Madagascar through a plausible route -by bike only- in which we’ll be screening movies, short films and documentaries by means of our own mobile pedal powered cinema, which we’ll be carrying ourselves.

The electricity required for the show will come from the sheer cycling power of local people that will have to join in and give a hand to spark the magic of cinema, if only a little pedaling.
We are looking for a trailer to load the cinema! Something very reliable due to the staff is delicate, projector, multi-media player, and all the electronic circuits. The cinema is inside a flight case (550x550x380 mm). We think the right one would be the Y LARGE.

We would like to know if you are interested to collaborate with us, donating us one of your trailers, it would be sooooo cool for us.

We have a Facebook page and a blog. We have a lot of visibility in international press and TV (you can see in the other dossier) and we are going to film a documentary of our trip as well. A lot of film directors are collaborating with us: Isabel Coixet, Javier Fesser, Chema Rodriguez… donating us films.

We think it would be cool for you too collaborate with us!

Well we could not say no! The trip is underway, check out the website for more information and to follow the project.
