September Club’s own Manny Marquez‘s new documentary short is playing this weekend in Portland at the FILMED BY BIKE Film Festival.
Manny is a cycling enthusiast. His love for the sport started while filming a September Club documentary for Trek at the 2009 Tour De France. It has since changed his life – he went from 300 pounds at the time when he began cycling to 170 today. He is happier and healthier. And he made a documentary about his hometown, Hood River, Oregon bike race as a love letter to cycling – and the fascinating people involved.
This week, his film, “IngerUcker: Beyond Fingerdome”, plays the Filmed By Bike Festival in Portland, Oregon.
