How We Roll: The Last Milers

HOW WE ROLL_Trailer_15k

    "Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time"

         -Steven Wright

"Last mile" has been used to describe the difficulty in getting people from transportation hubs like railway stations, bus depots, and ferry slips, to their final destination.

Three colorful Bostonians offer their solutions to the “last mile” commuter challenge.  Employing spirited footage, stimulating interviews and person-on-the-street reactions, they spur us to rethink urban transportation. They examine pros, cons and the possible future of using their favorite vehicles. They explore the benefits and consequences of urban growth and increasing traffic. The film encourages audiences to think about how they can make their cities and towns a better place.

While pondering alternative modes of transport on the horizon, viewers may ask: Are these “last milers” insightful visionaries, wicked agitators or exciting daredevils?

How We Roll  is a short doc film with consciousness and meaning in an enjoyable package.
