THE STRUGGLE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE, MOTHERLOAD is a crowd-sourced documentary about a new motherâ€™s quest to understand our current cultural shift toward isolation and disconnection, what this could mean for the future of the planet, and how life on a cargo bike could be the antidote. As filmmaker Liz Canning explores the burgeoning global movement to replace cars with purpose-built bikes, she learns about the bicycleâ€™s history and potential future as the ultimate â€œsocial revolutionizer.â€ Her experiences as a cyclist, as a mother, and in discovering the cargo bike world, make it clear to Liz that sustainability is not necessarily about compromise and sacrifice and there are few things more empowering, in an age of consumption, than the ability to create everything from what seems to be nothing.
