Sunset to Sunset – 3m, U S A
Directed by: Kent Hayward
In a city known for its love of cars, one pedestrian with a Super 8 camera walks across Los Angeles, coming face
to face with the metropolis instead of watching it blur by through a windshield. The day-long walk down culturally diverse
Santa Monica Boulevard, beginning at the intersection of Sunset Boulevard at sunrise and ending at Santa Monica Beach at sunset,
inspires filmmaker Kent Hayward to contemplate the changing nature of the city, motion pictures and himself.
frame of film every 20 steps, the filmmaker condenses a 12-hour walk into three minutes of film. As a result, the short experimental
documentary ironically speeds by so quickly that the audience can only absorb snatches of the commentary subtitles, which
linger on Hayward’s memories of certain street corners, focus on the people he passes and question what his future in
the City of Angels may hold.

exploration of memory, experience and recollection. Reality expires, but the image endures–it overtakes the moment
and provides it with flicker, texture, framing.
Little John Country – 11m, Canada
Directed by: Max
In aboriginal culture, time and distance often have no real meaning
-- from a non-aboriginal perspective. Then along comes an archaeologist/anthropologist who strikes up a relationship with
the community and together they hit 14,000-year-old human artifact paydirt, and 40,000-year-old mammoth remains. The story
of the 'Little John' archaeological site and the links it has made between aboriginal past and present. We meet the son and
grandson of 'Little John,' a respected elder who used the site as a hunting camp, just like his ancestors for thousands of
years, and the archaeologist who has worked with them since 1992.
Meltdown in Tibet – 12m, Canada
Directed by: Michael
Using undercover footage and stills, Meltdown in Tibet blows the lid off China's huge
and potentially catastrophic dam-building projects in Tibet. The film raises disturbing questions about a looming eco-disaster--involving
dwindling water resources of the Tibetan plateau. The major rivers of Tibet are at risk from rapidly receding glaciers--due
to climate change--and from large-scale damming and diversion, due to Chinese engineering projects. Tibetan nomads are being
shifted off their grassland habitat to make way for these projects. Why is China building so many large dams on the Tibetan
plateau? What on earth are China's engineers getting up to?
