[embed width="560"][/embed]

Thanks to Afropunk for putting us on to the incredible culture of BMX bike tricking, riding, and wilding out going on in Accra, Ghana right now. Bikelordz is a documentary that takes you into the world of BMX culture in Ghana and directly engages with the self-taught, local stars of the scene - following the young bike enthusiasts as they use their skills to get by, and to get recognition.  Watch the trailer above and then head to Kickstarter to help support the movie, and help bring bikes to Ghana.  For more, check out the full interview with director Mikey Hart over on Afropunk's website.
