Keep on Rolling: The Dream of the Automobile

Presenter: Oscar Clemente, Video-activist and Environmentalist (Distinguished Visitor in Residence in the Carleton College Spanish Department)

Theme: Mobility in the City

Sobre Ruedas: el sueño del automóvil by Oscar Clemente narrates the history of the car through a documentary collage. Energy used to originate from plants and animals but today it is machine produced. While the car was once glamorous and coveted, its harmful effects are now known. Cars infringe on physical spaces, emit harmful gases, and discourage socialization. This film encourages thought about this culturally central vehicle and how it interacts with our environment.
