Our Judges say:

Very nice window onto a New York cycling group.

Simon Taylor

A terrific cycling film about a multi-racial New York bike race: part character portrait, part cultural investigation, part adrenalin-fuelled race video, this film has it all. Super fun and great music.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

A hilarious, uplifting cycle film about people doing what they love!!

Horace Burrowes runs a regular Thursday night bicycle race at a defunct airport in Brooklyn. The old runways are crumbling. The only prizes are bragging rights and petty cash. The riders are from every walk of life, and from countries all over the globe. And yet Horace manages to hold everything together through love of the sport and force of personality. Thursday Fields is a portrait of a strikingly diverse subculture, and a look into the melting pot that is New York City.
