Second Bridge is Wider, But Not Wide Enough is the title of a film contained within Mobile Experiential Cinema: MPLS. Second Bridge is Wider... is a roving, bicycle mounted cinematic experience that invites audience members to view a multi-part film that is screened onto the original locations where it were filmed. The project explores the paradox between cinematic conventions and reality, while a faux documentary narrative works to blur these boundaries.

This initial iteration of MEC revolves around a 30 minute film broken into 5 sections/locations. Audience members travel via bike to each location and live action events occur at and between the screening locations as the ride progresses. Second Bridge is Wider But Not Wide Enough presents three former friends that discuss a mutual missing friend to the audience. They progress through the city of Minneapolis showing the filmmakers locations significant to their relationship with the missing character. The audience witnesses this tour and interviews as they inhabit these same urban spaces. Live action events include, a car chase, a guard dog, graffiti painting, and the police.
