*Online Premiere* Bam and Rawls, two bike riders in New York City, embark on a journey to find a satisfying slice of pizza. A film by Horatio Baltz, “Bam & Rawls Grab a Slice,” is exactly what it says it is, and works because of its loose energy and naturally charismatic leads. After a group bike ride taking over the NYC streets and tunnels, a group of fearless young men gather to discuss preferred cheap pizza spots, and when the hunger builds up far enough (“that bacon egg and cheese ain’t do nothing for me”), they head off in search of the best and cheapest (of course riding wheelies the whole time). Baltz captures the men in verite fashion, depicting both the natural rhythms of low-key conversation, as well as the adrenaline-fueled bike rides through the city, owning the streets in numbers. [Watch on YouTube]. (6 minutes). Directed by Horatio Baltz. Starring Bam & Rawls. Featuring the Self Made Ryderz. Music by The Horse-Eyed Men.
