Murder of Couriers documents the lives of a group of bike messengers over a nearly three-year span. This film was made by couriers, about couriers, for a wide general audience and offers the chance to experience a lifestyle that not many get the privilege to enjoy.
With the emerging popularity of urban fashion, green living
and alternative lifestyles, people all over the world have begun to take to the
streets on two wheels. At the heart of this general movement is a race of
individuals who are indifferent to the cause. Indifferent only because they've
always lived it. Now people around the world are beginning to look at bike
messenger culture as a simple unifier of modern ideals. “A perfect marriage of
work and play created by those who have learned to cut through the traffic of
an uneventful life.” Murder of Couriers investigates this culture through the
eyes of the people who live it daily.
