ADRENALINE RUSH: THE SCIENCE OF RISK
Approx. Running time: 45 minutes

PART OF OUR FILM FESTIVAL ENDNG APRIL 27 | Adrenaline Rush explores the innards of risk taking in a wide and spectacular way. From the "explosive" science and entrepreneurship of Alfred Nobel to a schoolboy’s first day in class, from the boldness and determination of Henry Ford to the shy but affectionate sentiment of a teen for another, Adrenaline Rush brings us on a journey in the multidimensional world of risk, a world where progress of humankind or personal accomplishment aren’t necessarily related to the scope or the nature of the endeavor.

Adrenaline Rush also teaches us that humanity can benefit from the unexpected and combined efforts of two very different risk takers whose minds meet across half a millennium and across the boundaries of the Old and New Worlds, as we witness the experiment of Leonardo Da Vinci’s notorious parachute by Adrian Nicholas, world’s most respected skydiver and inventor in his own right, monitored closely by Salford scientists who seek answers on critical and life pertaining matters. Incidentally, Adrenaline Rush doesn’t hesitate to explain scientific concepts in simple words.

From the soaring and breathtaking cliffs of Norway to the calm and inspiring immensity of the Mojave Desert, from Thomas Edison’s laboratory to a simple American schoolyard,  Adrenaline Rush is more than a thrilling visual experience, it’s an invitation to explore our inner selves and a statement that there is no such thing as having little courage.

PENGUINS
Approx. Running time: 45 Minutes

Special note: Penguins has been selected for our four week 2014 Film Festival starting March 21, 2014, but the film has arrived early in Victoria so you will have more time to catch it.

Penguins celebrates the destiny of a very special King Penguin, who returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic. Known as Penguin City, the island is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals and brawling elephant seals—as well as six million penguins! Somehow our hero must earn his place among the island inhabitants and fulfill his destiny by finding a mate and raising a family.
What follows is the story of the most challenging time in a King Penguin’s life, when he is driven to nurture and defend his offspring against harsh weather and fierce predators. This cosmic drama plays out in one of Earth’s last great wildernesses, amid steep mountain ranges and windblown plains half buried beneath snow and ice. Penguins is an unforgettable tale of one King Penguin’s journey through his species’ central rite of passage.
