CRIMINAL MASS ( documentary )

A journey through the Critical Mass Bicycle Ride and America’s right
to assemble.

Filmmaker Christopher J. Ryan ( Warriors: the Bike Race, Still We Ride,
Team Spider Television ) has spent the last 18 months tracking his
personal experiences as a Critical Mass bike rider, as well as his
subsequent journey through the New York State Criminal Court system.

The colorful, poignant, and often funny story is told through video
footage that includes video diaries, bicycle chase scenes, paddy wagon interviews
shot by Chris’ handcuffed hands , voyeuristic NYPD helicopter footage, as well as daring video
exposing the presence of NYPD’s previously denied undercover agents ( recently used as the basis of a recent New York Times cover story ).

Throughout his extensive journey, Chris tries to juggle his time-
consuming legal battles and courtroom appearances, with his day-job
working, ironically, on television’s “Law and Order” where he
lights the large courtroom sets that are used to pretend to prosecute
the city’s real crimes.

His misadventures are intertwined with a colorful cast of characters,
including:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------

-His fellow arrestees, who form a legal aid group known as FREEWHEELS,
as they become unwilling participants in the cat & mouse style police
chases and exhaustive legal battles.

-Chris’ VIDEO CAMERA, a character unto itself as the beaten and
bruised little camcorder is repeatedly smashed to pieces and
miraculously brought back to life by a sympathetic television news
technician named “FLIP”.

-Chris’ Father, KEVIN, a military officer and Vietnam veteran, who,
horrified at the recent treatment of Cindy Sheahan, becomes heavily
involved in his son’s legal battles.

-Dozens of unlikely “criminals” such as 8-year old JENNA, who
can’t understand “why the police arrest bicyclists” and SHARON,
who, at seven months pregnant, when sent to jail for standing on the
sidewalk with her bike the night of a Critical Mass ride.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------


Criminal Mass examines the erosion of the American people’s personal
freedoms, privacies, and the right to assemble, while celebrating the
unexpected positive effects, communities and friendships forged in the
face of injustice.
