Watershed: Exploring a new Ethics for the New West

Mark Decena
Doc | 2012 | 56min | USA

Whiskey is for drinkin’. Water is for fightin’,” says Jeff Ehlert, a fly fishing guide in Rocky Mountain National Park, recalling a well-worn saying heard throughout the Colorado River Basin. As one of the most dammed, dibbed, and diverted rivers in the world struggles to support thirty million people across the western United States, can we find harmony amongst the competing interests of cities, agriculture, recreation, wildlife, and indigenous communities with rights to the water?

We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists

Brian Knappenberger
Doc | 2012 | 95min | USA

A documentary on the workings and beliefs of the self-described "hacktivist" collective, Anonymous, takes us inside its complex culture and history. Through interviews with current members – some recently returned from prison, others still awaiting trial – as well as writers, academics and major players in various “raids,” the film traces the collective’s breathtaking evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown, global movement, one armed with new weapons of civil disobedience for an online world.

Keep on rolling: the dream of the automobile

Óscar Clemente
Doc | 2011 | 56min | Spain

In just over a century, the automobile has revolutionized our way of life. We allocate as much as 62 per cent of urban space to cars, roads, parking and garages, leaving less space for human activity. The car has shaped us into “sedentary nomads,” constantly moving but never really moving. Through interviews, animated sequences and archival footage from the 1950s, Keep on Rolling details how our entire way of life is now dictated by our dependence on the automobile.
