Our first film on January 5th is Killswitch; a gripping documentary about the battle for control over the Internet. Free speech, innovation and democracy are all up for grabs as the Internet comes under attack for its disruptive and dynamic nature. The filmmakers frame the story of two young “hactivists,” Aaron Swartz and Edward Snowden, whose lives parallel one another as they free information to millions, putting both of them directly into the cross-hairs of the world’s most powerful interests.
This film probes the efforts of big business to control the Internet, the efforts of government to regulate it, and the efforts of hackers to free up information worldwide as well as the consequences of doing this. Will the experiences of Swartz and Snowden be a cautionary tale of what happens when you dare to take on elite power structures? Or could their efforts become the spark igniting a revolution that redefines democracy in the digital age? Winner of the Award for Best Editing of a Feature Documentary at 2014 Woodstock Film Festival
Our second film on January 19th is Buck; Winner of Tales of the Heart at the 2015 FHFF “Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will.” So says Buck Brannaman, a true American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine grueling months a year helping horses with people problems. Buck, a richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life “horse-whisperer,” he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment.
Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses – and people – with his understanding, compassion and respect. In this film, the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero, Buck is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds. Also Winner of the U.S. Documentary Audience Award at 2011 Sundance Film Festival and 10 other awards in 2011 and 2012
