Congrats to 'Two Blind to Ride,' Indiewire's Project of the Week!

After a stunningly close victory secured by only one vote, the cycling documentary "Two Blind to Ride" triumphed in this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Two Blind to Ride" director Laura Rosensteel. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.

Here's what the project's about:

Christi is completely blind in one eye, and has blurry vision out of the other. Tauru has tunnel vision. His condition is degenerative & he will eventually go blind, so now is the time for this trip! Their bike ride will take them from Tierra del Fuego, Argentina to Deadhorse, Alaska over the next year and a half. They'll stop along the way to visit & share their story with schools for the visually impaired.

Four more Projects of the Day coming this week. Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.

    Thanks everyone for voting. We really could not do it without you. We also would like to thank the other projects and ask people to give them support too. Project of the Day/Week is about getting attention and supporting all the projects.
