The free Bikeminded Film Club is back for its fourth year – taking over Kensington Central Library’s art-deco lecture theatre to present films with a cycling theme.

Bikeminded is the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s campaign to get as many people cycling in borough as possible, building on the 8000+ cyclists that live and work within Kensington and Chelsea.

The first screening of the year will be Benda Bilili – a documentary that follows a group of street musicians in the Democratic Republic of Congo and their journey to performing concerts in Europe. The core members of the group are disabled due to poliomyelitis and move around in specially customized tricycles.

The name of the film (and the band itself) ‘Benda Bilili’ means ‘look beyond appearance’ in Lingala.

The film is subtitled and certified PG and the details of the showing are as follows:

When? Thursday, 3 November from 7pm (film starts at 7.30pm)

Where? Kensington Central Library – Lecture Theatre, Phillimore Walk.

How much? It’s free! Tickets are required however, and can be booked via Eventbrite.

For more information on the screening, please email or telephone 020 7361 4259.
