Fifty seven years after Ellen Ripley survived her disastrous ordeal, her escape vessel is recovered after drifting across the galaxy as she slept in cryogenic stasis. Back on earth, nobody believed her story about the “Aliens” on the planet LV-426. After the “Company” orders the colony on LV-426 to investigate, however, all communication with the colony is lost. The Company enlists Ripley to aid a team of tough, rugged space marines on a rescue mission to the now partially terraformed planet to find out if there are aliens or survivors. As the mission unfolds, Ripley will be forced to come to grips with her worst nightmare, but even as she does, she finds that the worst is yet to come. - from IMDB

As the installation transforms into fractals and abstract shapes, students will capture the creative process through stop motion animation. At the end of the workshop, students will see their work premier on the big screen at the Portland EcoFilm Festival's showing of the youth-focused film following the workshop, All the Time in the World. This special workshop will also include a Chipotle catered lunch and free admission to the film.

Crying Earth Rise Up & Chuitna Coal
CRYING EARTH RISE UP is an intimate portrait of the human cost of uranium mining and its impact on sacred water. When a Lakota woman finds that her drinking water tests unusually high for radiation, she seeks to find out why. The answer leads her to a nearby uranium mining operation, which is extracting ore from deep in the ground by tapping the High Plains/Ogallala Aquifer, a huge underground cache of water covering 174,000 square miles from Texas to South Dakota—a water source that supplies drinking water to 82% of the people who live within the aquifer boundary.
