Documentary by Bad Carman/Manny Cervantes (Documentary) Producer Since 2012, Director/Producer Manny Cervantes was working hard on accomplishing one of his dreams, a feature documentary on bicycle culture around the United States. In filming BIKELANTIS, he toured the country for over two years, chronicling his various tours and interviewing cyclists of all stripes to get a perspective on what is advancing cycling in their specific cities. BIKELANTIS is an exploration of bike friendliness and how cycling is changing communities. The documentary explores more than 20 cities and looks at bike shops, bike sharing, advocacy, bike touring and many other topics affecting cyclists nationwide. Lafayette, Indiana is featured as a vibrant, cycling community where biking is evolving and the Hood Ride Bicycle Shop in Phoenix, Arizona is showcased as an example of a fully realized bicycle habitat. BIKELANTIS envisions a bike universe with a strong sense of community that is part of a healthier, creative lifestyle with a global capacity for compassion between neighbors and ultimately, bike friendliness. Shorty after completing principal photography, Emmanuel “Manny” Cervantes, 35, of Lafayette, Indiana, passed away on May 15, 2014. Manny was a creative thinker and an energetic force who made lasting connections with many people in the communities he visited. Being with him typically included riding bikes, taking chances, thoughtful talks about art or bike culture, and some laughs. In filming BIKELANTIS, Manny rode around the country seeking out diversity in cycling experiences and searching for this bike utopia in real life. While Manny is no longer with us, his dream to uncover and redeem Bikelantis lives on. This is BIKELANTIS. #Bikelantis #livelikemanny - Bikelantis.com
