Bye Bye Car (The Netherlands) (50 Min) 

The car is less popular among young people. How will the new generation move in the future?

In 2004, something remarkable happened. For the first time in decades there was a decline in car sales in the US. But even more remarkable: that happened before the big credit crunch! Guess what? Especially the younger generation, doesn’t buy cars anymore and drives less mileage on the car. Cars are indeed polluting, expensive to operate and maintain, and they are idle 90% of the time and take up space. And above all: driving interrupts your permanent smartphone communications! Will we slowly leave the car as a status symbol? Backlight investigates the mobility of the future.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18      8:30 PM    NEW WORLD SYMPHONY SOUNDSCAPE 

Happy Feet (USA) (108 Min) - FREE ADMISSION

Mumble is an Emperor Penguin who is different from the others – instead of singing like the rest of them he just wants to tap dance, which leads him to some exciting adventures and eventually to contact with Aliens – the humans who are impacting on the penguin environment though overfishing.

George Miller’s long-in-the-works computer animated saga, made in association with Animal Logic, is a triumph. Not only does it look wonderful but it makes you pause and think about what we’re doing to the environment and if, perhaps, we can do things better.
