][masked] If you would like to show a clip; and please provide a short description. To be included in the screening 10 minute segments from at least three films in progress: "Necessary Folly" by Oli Newsome is a coming of age and quest for meaning story. The true world of kinetic sculpture racing is shown through the eyes of an aging retired teacher as he puts himself through the Grand Championship of all kinetic sculpture races--a human-powered, 42 mile, 3 day event from Arcata, California to Ferndale, California. All sculptures are human powered (mostly with pedals), and participants are a family of charming odd balls who hold these annual events in 12 cities in the U.S. as well as in Australia, Japan and Germany. Bill Aston and Christy Nordstrom will present a film about renewable energy and WA state's progress towards acheiving our Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard, voted in 2006. "Christiania: Our Heart is in Your Hands" by Richard Jackman and Robert Lawson tells the story of an anarchist squatter community that has been occupying an abandoned military base in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark, since 1971.
