Filmed in Boston throughout the fall of 2012, Abandoned: Bikes on the Streets is a short mockumentary about the modern urban phenomenon of bikes being abandoned on city sidewalks. Told from the perspective of the orphaned bikes, the film brings its pedal-powered subjects to life by empathizing with them, and by indicting their former owners. Creative footage of more than 30 stranded bikes is combined with a compelling soundtrack, featuring noted musical artist Moby, to give the narrative a dark yet humorous tone. Ultimately, it leaves the viewer wondering: are abandonments simply examples of people behaving badly, or indicative of the larger problems in our society.
