    Hello Atlanta Friends,
    David Giguere aka DavidG (Georgia Overland) and Daniel Palazzolo aka Zolo (Decatur Garage) are offering a free screening of Maciek Swinarski's film "MotoSyberia".

    Just a heads-up...this is not a kid-friendly film.

    I was introduced to this film by Austin Vince (http://www.austinvince.com/) at his Adventure Travel Film Festival (http://www.adventuretravelfilmfestival.com/) last year.

    Here's a description of MotoSyberia from the ATFF site:
    "An incredibly imaginative film of one of the toughest motorcycle trips ever undertaken, a masterpiece!
    Maciek Swinarski is one of the top adventure film-makers in the world today. His latest film is the story of a seriously hardcore motorcycle ride from his native Poland to Magadan in eastern Siberia, and has made him a household name in his homeland. Imbued with a sense of humour so often absent from travel documentaries, Swinarski fully engages with the local people as he and his three travelling companions cross the imposing Russian landmass on their KTM640s. He shares this amazing experience not only with the viewer, but also with the people he meets along the way. Motosyberia is the antidote to the contrived ‘reality’ TV which dominates our screens today – genuine back to basics stuff, real life action, with all the hardship and adventure that entails."

    Bring a chair and a beverage and join us for this very different sort of adventure travel film at the best underground film screening location...Decatur Garage.

    A little about the Georgia Overland and Decatur Garage screenings:
    We always contact the filmmakers for permission, we never charge a fee of any sort nor do we receive any compensation in return. The free screenings are our way of supporting a small but important community of filmmakers by introducing our friends and family to new films...and it's a great excuse to hang out with our buddies and make new friends!
    If you plan on going, reply in this thread.
    We hope to see you there!

    Great to hear David!

    I went to the last screening at the garage...what a great venue for gear head flicks! It really doesn't get much better - put your chair down next to a KTM or Porsche in the garage and sit back and enjoy some advrider style entertainment.

    I'm putting this one on the calendar.:clap
