Dir. Michael B. Clifford
70 mins | UK

‘’Inspiring and joyful, a love letter to the humble bicycle and all who ride one.” – James Spender, Cyclist Magazin

“Inspiring and very enjoyable! A pinch of astrophysics with a host of endearing characters.” – Jeremy Vine, broadcaster and cycling champion

Chasing The Sun is the new film from 2x BAFTA-winning director Michael B.Clifford. Produced by East Devon based Pip Piper, One Small Barking Dog.

In 1973 a professor in a little known American university set out to discover the most energy efficient creature on earth: turns out, it’s a human being on a bicycle! The experiment has since entered into legend and is now more relevant than ever before. We explore extraordinary personal stories of ordinary cyclists chasing the sun, revealing the power of the humble bicycle to transform lives and help save the planet.

The film features contributions from broadcaster and ITV’s voice of the Tour de France Ned Boulting, author and blogger Jools Walker, Turner Prize-winning artist Sir Richard Long and 4x Mountain Bike World Champion Tracy Moseley.

This is a Green Phoenix event. “Paving a greener and more sustainable future for the arts in Exeter”
