What does it mean to be a cyclist? What does a cyclist look like? As We Have Always Done, a film by Kiki Ong, explores these questions and celebrates the fact that anyone who rides a bike is a cyclist. Through stop-motion animation and live footage, the film follows three organizers from Pedal 2 the People, a community for cyclists of color, and shares how they brought their fight for racial justice to the cycling world.
Watch the trailer here and stay tuned for the full film, which will play at the Filmed by Bike Festival in May.
As We Have Always Done was supported by the Eddie Bauer One Outside Film Grant, along with Filmed by Bike and Specialized. It was edited by Angie Paola, with animation direction by Eli Crespin and photography direction by Collin Chappelle and Evan Green.
