Flaco Blag, 2000, 24 min, North American Premiere

"An activists-eye view-of the blockades that brought the World Trade Organisation to its knees on the streets of Seattle on November 30, 1999. Filmed on a shoestring budget of... er... sod all, the film is intended to inspire and incite wronged people from every point of the bloodstained compass.

Brian Standing, 2000, 38 min, West Coast Premiere

Pedalphiles 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, Wisconsin streets, S.C.A.B. recycles junked ten-speeds and kids' scooters into nightmarish vehicles of urban terrorism. Between infiltrating events sponsored by tamer bycicle enthusiasts and wedging ill-fitting Huffies together with hacksawa and butterknives, S.C.A.B. members find time to muse on anarchy, consumer culture, proper bunny-hopping techniqe, the failure of the media and the purpose of art. "It's an experiment in phenomenology," says S.C.A.B. co-founder Michael Spelman, "butit's also nice to piss of cars."
