Motorcycles on Film

Cinematheque, GOMA

The Motorcycle roars to life on screen in GOMA's custom-built free cinema program, exploring the rich history of motorcycles in cinema including classics, icons and new takes on motorcycle culture.

Blending Hollywood classics with lesser known but equally captivating films from around the world, this program showcases how motorcycles have been used to represent ideas of danger, fraternity and freedom, while also looking back to the early years of the vehicle as well as forward to what possibilities may lie ahead of us.
