"BIDDER 70", "Machine Man", and "Mojado"
FEATURE:  "BIDDER 70"  Director: George Gage

"BIDDER 70" centers on an extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience demanding government and industry accountability!

In 2008, university student Tim DeChristopher committed an act which would redefine patriotism in our time. In order to save 14 pristine parcels of land in Utah (totaling 22,500 acres) from environmental devastation and corporate interest, he single-handedly outbid a group of investors at a public auction.

In an interesting turn of events, DeChristopher was removed from the auction in handcuffs by FBI agents, taken into custody, and ultimately sentenced to two years in prison!

This ignited a spirit of civil disobedience in the name of climate justice that spread across the country.  Follow Tim, "Bidder 70", from college student to incarcerated felon. Redefine justice for yourself.

SHORTS:

"Machine Man"   Director: Alfonso Moral

A reflection on modernity and global development, the film takes place in the capital of Bangladesh, where the 'machine men' execute different forms of physical labor, and become a driving force behind the city.

"Mojado"   Director: Jörn Threlfall

365 days a year, thousands of Mexican men, women and children make a brutal journey across hostile desert to reach the US in search of work. An overview on one of the largest human migrations on the planet today, and it's happening in our backyard.
