ADAPTATION, 102min., Canada
Directed by Jake Thomas
Adaptation follows a group of wheelchair bound athletes as they converge in British Columbia, Canada for the BC Summer Race Series. The World’s first downhill mountain bike race series to include an adaptive mountain bike (aMTB) category. However Adaptation is not just a film about a race, it's a group of stories about the human race and ones ability to overcome adversity. Whether for the thrill of competition, or a need to push through the pain of daily life to simply get lost in a moment. The film seeks to inspire the uninspired, and educate the uneducated. To celebrate the gift of life, love, and friendship through all its complexities.
