Project Y Watch Party Registration

Project Y Watch Party @ Bicycle Sport Shop, Bee Cave

They’ll provide drinks, light snacks, and giveaways too!

About the film:
It’s part of our shared, universal human experience. It’s been with us since the very beginning, it’s as old as fire. The Greeks discovered it. Modern Philosophy was invented, in part, to study it. In the absence of hunting and gathering and the need to survive old-school-style, in this post-industrial age of communication and virtual everything, it’s more ubiquitous and relevant than ever. But still, nobody really knows what it is or why it’s a thing. Nobody can say with certainty why humans—Subject Athletes—are compelled to push their Physical, Mental, Spiritual and Emotional limits without causation. Until now.

Scientists, Rabbis, Nutritionists, Anthropologists, Jungian Dream Therapists and a host of other experts with various fields of expertise were interviewed. They experimented on a control group of “Subject Athletes” while they trained and raced the Dirty Kanza 200, the world’s premier Sucks Event. And the results are all in a movie and that movie is called PROJECT Y.
