SCREENING OF "CICLO": AUDIENCE AWARD, VLAFF 2013

On Tuesday, April 15th, join us for the screening of CICLO, VLAFF's Audience Favourite 2013.

Pachuca, Mexico. 1956. Brothers Arturo and Gustavo Martínez leave their hometown in central Mexico with the desire to cross the continent on bicycles. Eighty-two days and 5,600 km later, they arrive in Toronto, not knowing that this journey will change the entire route of their lives.

A beautiful journey of loss and hope for all of those who once left their hometown to make Canada their home.

Pachuca, 1956. Brothers Arturo and Gustavo Martínez leave their hometown in central Mexico with the desire to cross the continent on bicycles. Eighty-two days and 5,600 km later, they arrive in Toronto, not knowing that this journey will change the entire route of their lives. Ever since director Andrea Martínez Crowther can remember, stories of her father and uncle’s trip have formed part of her family’s folklore. Over half a century later, Arturo and Gustavo - now in their 70s - retrace that epic path, in an exploration of memory, the cycles of life and the unavoidable passage of time.

When I was a little girl, I thought it was pretty normal to have a Dad who had travelled from Mexico to Canada on bicycle. Doesn’t everyone have one of those??? Andrea Martínez Crowther, interviewed by François Levesque, Apartment613

En 1956 los hermanos Arturo y Gustavo Martínez hicieron un viaje de Pachuca, México, a Toronto, Canadá, en bicicleta. Fueron los primeros mexicanos en lograr la hazaña. Este viaje cambiaría la ruta de sus vidas así como la de su árbol genealógico. Más de medio siglo después, Arturo y Gustavo -ya entrados en su séptima década- vuelven a recorrer ese mismo camino. El objetivo es simple: ver qué ha cambiado en el paisaje y en ellos mismos. Una película tierna y llena de memorias bellas para todos aquellos que hace mucho tiempo llegaron a forjar un hogar en Canadá.
