Those familiar with the training discipline parkour–or “free running”–know that its push to move creatively and freely throughout the world is more than an exercise routine, it’s a philosophy for life.  “People in Motion”, in its focus on parkour, showcases the potential people have to move through time and space.  Shot along the West Coast and in Black Rock City and using an original score and composite editing, the film inspires viewers with its fresh perspective on how the individual can move creatively through a number of environments.  Just as Burning Man’s Ten Principles inspire Burners to come together as a collaborative community in the face of the harsh Black Rock Desert, parkour’s philosophy of overcoming obstacles is about defeating and adapting to both the mental and physical barriers which surround us every day.

The ninety minute film will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker and parkour practitioner Lonnie Tisdale.  The film begins at 7:30p.  Light appetizers and a wine and beer bar will be open during the first thirty minutes of the event.  Q&A to follow the film.
