With an interest in the growing number of young middle-class people in Nairobi cycling in very dangerous conditions, Sam Hopkins and Florian Stoll created a film with the participation of the subject they were interested in. This meant close collaboration with cyclists in Nairobi, with the filming and direction a shared responsibility. An integral part of the piece is mobile phone film-making which “further blurs the boundary between filmmaker and subject”, therefore allowing an honest portrayal of life cycling in Nairobi.
