Tamalpais, sentinel peak of the San Francisco Bay Area, is considered sacred by many... native and non-native alike. In 1950, the military bulldozed the highest peak of the mountain to build an Air Force Station tasked with directing jet interceptors and short range Nike nuclear missiles against the potential threat of Russian nuclear bombers. By 1980 the base was obsolete and summarily closed. The military literally walked away from dozens of structures, leaving behind a huge toxic mess on the mountain. Through the use of historical footage, 3D reconstruction, interviews and breathtaking timelapse cinematography, this 20-minute film, narrated and co-written by Peter Coyote, explores the history of Tam's West Peak and how local citizens have been fighting to restore their mountain to a natural state. www.invisiblepeak.com © 2014 Gary Yost

        It is the well known fact that our society is structured like a pyramid. Only very few people on the top create conditions for the majority below. Who are these people? May we blame them for the problems our society faces today? They say: “a fish rots from the head”, so we set out to follow the fishy odor. What we found out is that people on the top are more likely to be psychopaths than the rest of us.

            • "Journey of Hanuman" A film by Lola Creel-Long Trailer

              from Lola Creel Added 3,666 10 1

              Journey of Hanuman is not so much a film by conventional definition as an art piece – a meditative poem in audiovisual form. With layered cinematography, evocative music and voice-over poetry by the Noble Prize writer Octavio Paz, Mexican filmmaker Lola Creel hopes to “preserve the moments of India that have not been disturbed by globalization and are related to the spiritual ancient knowledge of that country”. Rather than relying on a traditional narrative, Creel uses her countryman Paz’s lyric experience of India (where he served as an ambassador from 1962-1968) to loosely link visual scenes ranging from a silhouetted snake charmer in front of the Palace of Winds in Jaipur to the ritualistic washing in the Ganges. There are also underwater shots inspired by the Sanskrit epic The Ramayana and a combination of classical Indian music and an original soundscore from the Kronos Quartet.
