Fierce, Bold, Fast, Brave! “Women in the Front Seat” paints a vibrant and diverse picture of women who not only drive their motorcycles but drive their lives. On a transformative solo cross country quest riding her 2015 Indian Scout motorcycle, filmmaker Indy Saini challenges her own fears to discover their inspiring stories. WITFS shares the inspiring stories of women who not only drive their motorcycles but drive their lives. Overcoming accidents, forming communities, breaking records. Director Indy Saini is the daughter of an immigrant from India. As long time motorcycle rider, she believe it’s time to break the stereotypes of who rides a motorcycle. As part of the global movement of women taking the helm, this documentary meets riders from their early twenties to their seventies and from all walks of life. I love to drive and am a huge fan of motorbike and car movies and TV shows. But they overwhelmingly feature only male, and usually white, subjects. If women are involved, it is usually as some sort of “window dressing” – scantily clad, draped over a vehicle, or waving a flag. This does not at all accurately represent women’s place in the gearhead world. This documentary is uplifting, finally featuring women’s stories in this particular universe and, most importantly, is fun, engaging and a great ride! Car and bike media are known for the exciting and well-produced marriage of music with vehicle, and I want to provide that high level musical experience for the audience of Women In The Front Seat. Women In The Front Seat was sponsored by Canon and was shot on a C200.
