    MOTHERLOAD

    MOTHERLOAD is an award-winning crowdsourced documentary about our cultural shift toward isolation and disconnection, what this means for the planet’s future, and how life on a cargo bike could be an antidote. Filmmaker Liz Canning cycled everywhere until she had twins in 2008. She found modern motherhood challenging, but hauling babies via car was stifling. A desperate google search for “family bike” revealed a global movement to replace cars with long-frame bicycles designed to carry heavy loads. Liz set out to learn more about these “cargo bikes,” and MOTHERLOAD was born. As she meets cargo bike inventors, riders and advocates all over the world, Liz discovers the history, and potential future, of the bicycle as the “ultimate social revolutionizer,” and contemplates the increasing tension between modern life and our hunter-gatherer DNA. When characters encounter cultural resistance—particularly bikelash focused on women and mothers--MOTHERLOAD draws connections to the cyclist Suffragettes and women's seemingly endless fight for bodily autonomy.
