A chronicle of the history and development of the "Critical Mass" bicycle movement, "We are Traffic" depicts a spirited and dynamic movement of the otherwise apathetic 90s. Now established in over 100 cities in 14 countries, Critical Mass is, for many bicycle enthusiasts, a monthly ritual of riding en masse, forming a swarm of pedal-power in an attempt to reclaim the streets. "We are Traffic" tracks this leaderless, grassroots movement from its beginnings in San Francisco in 1992 to its spread across the globe. Provocative and entertaining, this documentary presents a side of Critical Mass not seen in mainstream media. The video documents both the successes and failures of this unique movement.
