North America’s population is expected to increase by as much as 100 million people by the year 2050. With oil prices and road congestion on the rise, new strategies for moving people from one place to another will be necessary. Among the transportation options under consideration is higher–speed inter–city rail service that would better connect urban areas such as Portland, Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia. “Sidetracked: Redefining Rail” investigates the possible effects of higher–speed rail in the Pacific Northwest. Premiered July 2012 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at the annual Pacific Northwest Economic Region Summit.
The most recent production from the award–winning filmmakers of MediaLab is “Overexposed,” a new documentary about “compassion fatigue,” a condition that particularly affects those working in helping professions such as health care, social services and law enforcement. The new film, partially sponsored by the global relief organization, World Vision, premiered Oct. 8, 2011 in Seattle. A second public showing will occur on the campus of Pacific Lutheran University in early 2012. Please stay tuned for more details.
