On Feb. 28th, 2009 near the tiny village of Santa Rosa, the OCP pipeline breaks in Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. An estimated 14,000 barrels of crude spill into the Napo and Coca Rivers, both of which are tributaries of the Amazon River. Framed within Ecuador’s new pro-environment constitution, that set the first legal precedent for a Bill of Rights, not for corporations, but for the Earth as a living organism with inherent rights and legal protections, the film looks at the Santa Rosa spill, contamination left by the Petroleum Industry, and the people living in the planet’s most biologically diverse Rainforest. The film then tells the story of refugees in Ecuador’s northern border who have been displaced by the Colombian conflict, and takes a hard look at the relationship between contamination, human rights abuses, and coca eradication programs.

Beginning with Space Invaders in 1978, arcade games began to appear everywhere. By 1982, there were 13,000 dedicated arcade locations across North America. It was the Golden Age of Arcade Games, generating $3.2 billion dollars in 1983. By 1985, revenue had fallen 97%. Atari declared bankruptcy. Arcades closed. Most of the old games were converted or destroyed. A few were packed into warehouses where they remained, largely forgotten, for at least another decade. This is the story of arcade video games, and the generation who grew up in the arcades attempting to collect and preserve their fondest memories.

Cairo’s Tahrir Square is the heart and soul of the film, which follows several young activists. Armed with values, determination, music, humor, an abundance of social media, and sheer obstinacy, they know that the thorny path to democracy only began with Hosni Mubarek’s fall.
