Tumbleweeds Film Festival - Best of Fest

A CAT IN PARIS
Directed by: Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol

A Cat in Paris is a beautiful and thrilling animated film set on the moonlit rooftops of Paris.

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Film, A Cat in Paris combines stunning hand-drawn and richly colored animation, a jazzy soundtrack, and action-packed adventure to create a wonderfully charming film for children and adults alike.

Dino the cat leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a mute girl whose mother, Jeanne, is a detective in the Parisian police force. At night Dino teams up with Nico, an agile “cat” burglar who evades capture by fluidly leaping from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. Curious about where her beloved cat goes after the sun sets, Zoe decides to follows Dino on one of his nightly escapades. A surprising series of events leads to Zoe being captured by the gangster who killed her father. Can Nico and Dino find a way to use their feline skills to save her?

CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS

Directed by Werner Herzog

Discovered in 1994, the Chauvet Cave in southern France contains pristine artwork dating back 30,000 years. Amid gleaming stalactites and stalagmites and a carpet of animal bones, beautiful images of horses and bison gallop alongside ghostly cave lions, cave bears and woolly mammoths. Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog gained exclusive access to film inside the nearly inaccessible cave.  Don't miss this unique glimpse of the birth of art. Following the film, photographer/museum curator/archaeologist Dr. Laurel Casjens will explore Utah's hauntingly beautiful rock art and how it helps connect us to the people who lived here long ago.

Focus on Climate Series #3: How to Avoid the Truth About Climate Change

Barry Bickmore is a geochemistry professor at Brigham Young University, an active Mormon and an active Republican.  From 2008-2010, he was a county delegate for the republican party.  The scientific evidence for human caused climate change is quite strong and yet many people do not accept this.  Professor Bickmore will explain why political conservatives like himself are most likely to dismiss the scientific concensus on climate change and he will recount how he changed his mind about the issue.  He will then discuss the excuses people like himself use to dismiss scientific concensus and show why they don't hold water.
