Come and watch the story of new mom Liz, as she searches for freedom and connection in a gas-powered, digital and divided world. Feeling trapped by her dependence on a car to transport her kids, Liz questions our cultural understanding of ‘comfort’. This documentary explores our cultural shift towards isolation and disconnection, and how this may affect our future.

Motherload Trailer 'Motherload' not only describes how the earliest bicycles facilitated women’s fight for the vote and made socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals mobile, but it also shows how 21st century bicycles are empowering mothers, families, communities and advocacy networks all around the world.
