Micayla Gatto is a professional mountain biker and an artist. In this unique piece, the audience will journey along with Micayla as she rides through her paintings in the high alpine and deep forests of Retallack, BC. Gatto grew up racing cross-country mountain bikes but always had a passion for art. As her biking career blossomed, she became a top world cup downhill racer while continuing to pursue her love of art. Like many people, it was a challenge for her to figure out which direction to go. She finally settled on being both an artist and an athlete. In Intersection, the audience will be treated to a magical journey of color and creativity as Micayla rides through different settings that turn into her artwork while she’s riding. Directed by Lacy Kemp, and edited by Juicy Studios, Intersection: Micayla Gatto won the Banff Mountain Film Festival’s Best Mountain Sports Film Award at the 2017 event.
