This week the New York Times featured two articles about films screened at Mountainfilm 2008 last May.

Here’s an article about Sarah Palin and the Pebble Mine issue, featured in the film Red Gold.

Ben and Travis (the directors of the film) had no idea, when they featured Sarah Palin’s voice in the opening scene of their film, that she would become a household name in a few short months.

Here’s a review of one of our opening night films, Stranded.

One of the greatest survival stories of all time. 

Also, Eugene Jarecki, who moderated one of our foreign policy panels, was on the Daily Show Monday night. He’s promoting his new book, The American Way of War.
