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.

Keep on rolling: the dream of the automobile
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.
