With the rapid emergence of digital devices, an unstoppable, invisible force is changing human lives. Big Data now governs the day for many of us from the moment we awaken to the extinguishing of the final late-evening light bulb. This massive gathering and analyzing of data in real time allows us to address some of humanity’s biggest challenges. Yet the accessibility of all this data can come at a steep price.
"Pedal-Driven" transports viewers to the pristine forests above Leavenworth, Washington, where extreme mountain bikers came into conflict with the United States Forest Service over the use of public lands. This film examines the shared philosophies of stewardship and sustainability from both sides and, ultimately, offers examples of the ways in which opposing factions can find common ground in defense of the lands that belong to us all.
RIP!: A Remix Manifesto May 1, 6:30 PM
We are following our conversation from March’s film about ‘Big Data’, privacy and other information topics, with a conversation about copyright, protection of artistic product, Creative Commons and the legal gray area of remixing existing works. Musician and frequent First Friday Film attendee Aaron Wolf will help lead our discussion on this complex topic. More info on this can be found at: ripremix.com
