It was the first time a state government directly targeted a crop for genetic modification. Because the funding is public, we were able to force a rare interview with a genetic researcher at NMSU. This movie is packed with notification about the harmful test of GMO technology and the ignorance shown by the proponents of GMO crops.

Description: Although his influence on the history of photography has been nothing short of profound, Paul Strand (1890-1976) remains a curiously shrouded and paradoxical figure. While passionately devoted to humanity, he was happiest in the isolation of the dark room. A pioneer filmmaker (Manhatta, Native Land, Heart of Spain, The Wave), he found the process of collaboration painful. Strand established himself in Fresh York in the 1920's as a master of light and structure, with his actually popular image of Wall Road inspired by the forms and movement of European modernist painters such as Matisse and Picasso. His closeup portraits and landscapes were equally profound. John Walker's Strand.

Description: Ear-splitting improvisational noise sculpture and Christianity aren't normally mentioned in the same breath. But they are the twin passions of North Carolina musician Scotty Irving, and the essential elements of his one-man act, Clang Quartet. Using homemade instruments achieving unfathomable volumes (and inspired by Biblical verse), Irving challenges his audience to rethink traditional concepts of melody and spirituality. When Irving's motivations for walking so far out on musical and theological limbs are revealed, the "Armor of God" becomes a metaphor for the courage to create. Armor of God screened at more than eighty festivals and cinema venues internationally, winning nine awards (including a Juror's Citation from the Black Maria Movie and Video Festival). The movie also screened on regional PBS. -- IMDB

The documentary "Cartoon College" focuses on a handful of students attending The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS), a fresh kind of college specializing in comics. Featured are interviews with comic artists Lynda Barry, Charles Burns, and the unbelievable Chris Ware (plus others.) Strange, then, how not one of these artists talks very much (or ever) about the CCS itself: I mean, isn't the name of this movie "Cartoon College?" In reality, this "school" is a sham. The student's assignments are designed to give them the feeling (trick them) into thinking that they're "names," or at least published. No one, not the filmmakers or the artists featured, mission out how successful comic artists study illustration, have a BFA, or are entirely self taught. The movie also never mentions the cost of every year of studies (a staggering $18,000 a year!) as well as what happens to students after graduation. I've looked up the names of the students featured in this doc, but I can only ever search them mentioned in another reviews for this film. Yikes."Cartoon College" could have made aware that the CCS isn't the only comics college around: comparing/contrasting the CCS with The Kubert School would have granted this movie richness and depth. That's not to tell "Cartoon College" is shallow-- its greatest scenes are the artist interviews, but as the interviewees never talk about the CCS at any length, these interview segments feel out of place. (And also, what was up with that hokey goof-music they played whenever the 50+ mature student was on camera? That guy had, like, six degrees-- he was smarter than anyone at the CCS, the filmmakers included. What common snobbery on the part of these filmmakers-- you can say they were catering to the vanity of the pretentious hipster demographic. And why? Because the filmmakers and CCS students are in this demographic too.) Instead of presenting a varied review of the CCS featuring pros, cons, and comparisons with another comic colleges, "Cartoon College" focuses on the students, which is the main reason why this movie fails. A prerequisite for admittance to CCS, it seems, is to dress like an insane parrot, be unpleasantly fat, pale, and sport gross/greasy (facial) hair. It's almost sad seeing these fragile, egotistical youths create comics based on boring stories from their childhoods, significant only to them (one woman kept making comics based on her first period-- yeah, no) and all the while their student loans loom perniciously in the distance. And what's more, all the comics made by these students are the same. Hipster comics. Spoiled suburban comics. Clueless trends of Generation "Zad." Gee, I wonder why you can never search a trace of any of these students online. Should it be that... no one is publishing their work?
'Cartoon College' is a documentary about a tiny cartooning school in Vermont (perhaps the more-famous Joe Kubert School in Fresh Jersey wouldn't enjoy ball). Popular (to a comic ebook fanatic like your humble reviewer) faces appearing contain Stephen R Bissett, Scott McCloud and Art Spiegleman (still tagged as "the creator of 'Maus'" a couple of decades after that graphic novel's publication - hasn't he done anything else?) The students contain a Mormon who is working on a comic about how his older brother used to torture him shortly before discovering he (the brother) was terminally ill; the school's oldest student, a 61 year-old deaf janitor; and the young girl who in her work occasionally references her 'lesbionic' experiences but usually contents herself with writing about menstruation (yes - one of *those*, but she's such a dear somehow you don't mind). Many of the specialists and students reminisce about how wanting to draw made them outcasts at school (one lad sporting a Farrah Fawcett hairstyle tells he was often mistaken for 'gay... or British'). It is very enjoyable and the students come across as really likable - far too many sport baseball caps and terrible facial hair, though!
