Cinecleta, Moviebike – A pedal and solar-powered cinema
A Maxican man, Reginald Chapa, pedal through the streets of Saltillo, Mexico to create awareness about sustainable and healthy life. He has modified a cargo bike to make a moveable cinema that he calls Cinecleta, Moviebike.
He has installed solar-panels that supply power to a projector and other sound equipments. Through his moving cinema, he shares films and music within his community.
Everyday, he’ll set out to find public spaces where he could install a screen and play something that is relevant to everyday life, culture and healthy living in every way.You’ll see people or almost every age gathered around Cinecleta to enjoy few moments of leisure at a park or at corner in a city.
In Chapa’s own words, “The Cinecleta intervention program provides a public space to promote reflection on healthy living, culture, sustainability, mobility and the importance of the use of public space as a defense from violence, through the itinerant screenings showing selected audiovisual material.”
