SHARING MT TAM (30 minutes)
Mt. Tamalpais has been called the birthplace of mountain biking. But soon after Gary Fisher and friends began bringing their "clunkers" onto Tam in the 1970s, trouble started brewing. By the mid-1980s, all but one of the narrow hiking or "single-track" trails on Mt. Tam were closed to cyclists, and tickets were issued for mere "possession" of mountain bikes. Sharing Mt. Tam looks at the past, present, and foreseeable future of mountain bike trail access issues, and helps to bring about an understanding among hikers, equestrians, and cyclists.
Starring: Gary Fisher, Jacquie Phelan, Joe Breeze, Charlie Kelly, Otis Guy, Charlie Cunningham, and many more....
IN PERSON: filmmaker Stephen Federico
THE LOST PEOPLE OF MOUNTAIN VILLAGE (15 minutes)
An eco satire! Anthropologist Wade Davis calls it "no less than the most spectacular archaeological and anthropological discovery of our lifetimes"-- the discovery of a vanished culture that has baffled experts. Jerrold Sapphire, author of "Vanished: Why Bad Things Happen to Bad Civilizations", calls it -- well, you'll see what he calls it. When a lost backcountry skier stumbles onto a monumental complex of structures - apparently completely uninhabited - the only thing upon which experts agree is that we may never know what really happened to the lost people of Mountain Village.
