A few weeks ago, I was invited to the world premiere of the bike movie, "Rolling". Coming from Quezon City on a Wednesday night, the idea of driving to Makati wasn't such a hot idea for me then. But because I had nothing else to do, I decided to give it a go.
I got to the BSide a few minutes before the start of the movie. Unlike any other premiere that I attended before, this one has a very different feel. There were bikers with their bikes, and the place was packed with them. It seemed more like a party with a and-by-the-way film showing rather than the other way round. You can definitely get a sense of camaraderie and community in the bunch.
Directed by Edrie Ocampo and sponsored by Grantrail Cycles, Kali, Niner, HitchPro and Kuat, this bike film is a little more than 30 minutes long. But in that short span of time, you'll be treated to a lot of breathtaking images and shots that you'd want to just ride right after. It makes me want to revisit my dream.
Asked if they're going to show the film somewhere else after the premiere, they answered that they might if a lot of people ask for it. I guess a lot of people did because it's available online for everyone's appreciation.
