The Rural Route Film Festival presents:
Rural Route Tour
  
The Red Vic proudly welcomes The Rural Route Film Festival to San Francisco! This festival was created to highlight works that deal with rural people and places.
The Rural Route Tour program plays on Tuesday; The Go Organic! program plays Wednesday:

• Whoa Mule (Herb E. Smith 1989 US) This music video features a performance of the Lee Sexton Band (including the spectacular fiddling of the late Marion Sumner).
• Wanderlust 2: Thunder on the Track (Walter Forsberg 2004 CAN) Inspired by stock car crash videos, this micro-doc gives a 1980’s glance into the sensational Saskatchewan Lawnmower Racing Circuit.
• In the Glow (Stewart Copeland 2006 US) Part personal film, part psuedo-scientific study and part observational essay, this film explores the banal but beautiful world of blank billboards.
• Alice Sees the Light (Ariana Gerstein US 2006) A craftily put together ode to the dark, full of a variety of visual tricks and film artistry.
• Pictograph (Miso and Lida Suchy 2006 Ukraine) Images by two artists are animated to create a tapestry weaving together vignettes of life in the village Kryvorivnya in the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine.
• The Wind Whispers there is Someone Behind the Tundra (Ken Are Bongo & Elle Sofe Henriksen 2006 Norway) Two dancers travel through time and space on rough land, enjoying the wonders of the sky.
• Dear Deer (Alan Webber 2007 US) It’s an alternative take on nature vs. urbanity when a plastic lawn doe finds herself lost on the gritty streets of Brooklyn, NY.
