"Pedalphiles"

This documentary follows the adventures of S.C.A.B. (Skids Creating Apocalyptic Bicycles), a roving gang of bicyclist- artist- philosophers hell-bent on ridding the world of automobiles. Using trash nabbed from the Madison streets, S.C.A.B. recycles junked ten-speeds and kids' scooters into nightmarish vehicles of urban terrorism.

 

"War Is Sell"

"War Is Sell" dissects the strategies of war propagandists: soldiers armed not with guns, but with words, pictures and commercial advertising techniques in their battle to win hearts and minds. How do you sell a war? How do the techniques of government propagandists, public relations consultants and commercial advertisers work, and why are they so effective?

 

"Counter-Revolution"

Every Saturday morning in the summer, residents of Madison, Wisconsin flock to Capitol Square to buy vegetables, fruits, eggs and meat trucked in by local farmers. A newcomer to the Dane County Farmer's Market may observe a peculiar custom: everyone walks around the square in the same, counter-clockwise, direction. One day, a group of radicals rose up, and demanded, "Why don't we try walking the other direction for a change?" This is the story of their revolt -- and the all too predictable results.

 

"Mecha-Godzilla vs. Megalo-Godzilla"

Godzilla is the most terrifying creature on the planet. But what happens when Godzilla meets a giant robot Godzilla? And what happens when they both meet an even more terrifying creature? Written, directed, scored and animated by a four-year old wunderkind. Look for a cameo by the director.
