The "Satan's Choice" film was produced in Canada in 1965, in and around Toronto, at a time when very little serious media time was given to anything to do with empathetically portraying the biker lifestyle just south of the border, with the exception of the photographic essays courtesy of oft discussed and seen pioneers featured on many blogs, mags and so on . . . a vast majority of straight society were content to look the other way, hope and pray they would all vanish into the ether and remain permanently repulsed and freaked out by their very existence. Seeking to gain some kind of real understanding into the reasons behind the establishment of 'outlaw' motorcycle clubs was given fuck all 'mainstream' endorsement or considerations.
Hence the significance of this particular documentary and its place in the overall historical scheme of things. Not only did this film get made but, moreover, it was done with funding from the National Film Board of Canada . . . go figure . . .how many other governmental agencies anywhere in the world from the socially tumultuous times of the mid sixties were involved in this kind of thing in a positive way . . . I suggest the answer is a resounding FUCK ALL . . . in all reality bugger all has changed over the ensuing forty five years, I'm sure you take my meaning . . . nudge, nudge, wink, wink . . .
