The Freedom Machine

Directed by Abel Gonzalez

SHORT DOCUMENTARY | 34 minutes | International Premiere

Moto-adventurer Jamie Robinson embarks on a trip around Baja California to teach some remarkable locals how to ride a bike. In return, his new friends will share with him the peculiar ways in which they express their personal freedom.

About Jamie Robinson

Jamie Robinson was born into a 2-wheeled world due to a motorcycle obsessed father who chopped up an old Garelli moped and taught his son to ride at 3½. After growing up watching his Dad race around tracks like Cadwell and Mallory Park on his 500cc BSA Gold Star, Jamie swapped his dirt-bike gear for racing leathers and joined his Dad racing the asphalt tracks in 1992.

 

Going on to race in British, European and World Championship events, as well as the road courses of the Isle of Man TT and Pikes Peak, Jamie now usually wears adventure gear as he takes to the hills for his next adventure.

About the Director

As an award winning writer/director for both the advertising and the entertainment industry, Abel has honed his storytelling skills by developing creative work for top national advertising agencies that has garnered accolades and prestigious awards (Cannes, Fiap, Clio and the New York Festival). His first two short films, the dark comedy "Crossing Numbers" (premiered at The Havana Film Festival) and the psychological drama "Forget Me Not", were present at more than 45 international film festivals and were awarded at four. His first feature film, a surreal comedy titled "By the Soles of Our Feet" will hit the festival circuit early next year.
