[AfroPunk] Why was it important to tell this story?
[Mikey Hart] It’s important to me for a few reasons:
–To show that the desire to live by your own rules for your art, skill, whatever you want to call it, is universal.
–To show a film set in Africa that showcases how dope African culture is, completely independent of the commonly held notion that Africa is just the sum of its problems.
–To show a seriously swagged out street style of biking that, to me, is unique to Ghana and incorporates music, dance, and acrobatics to a great degree.
Check out the full interview here. The crew still needs some cash to really get it poppin’ and hook up Ghanaian riders with DVDs of the film, pursue sponsorship opportunities, swag, bikes etc. so you can contribute via Kickstarter.
