PUMP is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it – and finally win choice at the pump. Today oil is our only option of transportation fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. PUMP shows us how through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars – cheaper, cleaner and American made – and in the process, create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy. The film features notable experts such as John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil US; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views and knowledge. Right now we have the ability to change our country’s future, but we never knew it. Aren’t we tired of being taken for a ride? PUMP is the movie that could change that.

Directed by Tomas Alfredson
In Swedish with English subtitles
1 hr 54 mins, rated R

A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy’s wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father. A pale, serious young girl, she only comes out at night and doesn’t seem affected by the freezing temperatures. It doesn’t take long before he figures out that Eli is a vampire. But by now a subtle romance has blossomed between Oskar and Eli, and she gives him the strength to fight back against his aggressors. Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson weaves friendship, rejection and loyalty into a disturbing and darkly atmospheric, yet poetic and unexpectedly tender tableau of adolescence.

“A spectacularly moving and elegant film that is, at this point, the best movie of the year.” –Washington Post “Discriminating horror-movie fans rejoice – this is the finest horror picture in years. Remarkable, as raw and frightening as it is tender and intelligent.” –Boston Phoenix

The Maine Frontier- Through the Lens of Isaac Walton Simpson, by filmmaker and composer, Sumner McKane, is a multimedia presentation that combines the rare and historic photography of Isaac Simpson with archived films, oral histories, and live music by Sumner McKane and Joshua Robbins. The Maine Frontier is centered around a collection of over 1,500 scarcely seen photographs taken around the turn-of-the-century by Amity, Maine, native, Isaac Simpson- photographer, blacksmith, barber, musician, woodsman, mechanic, husband, and father of 13 children.


The Maine Frontier is an illustration of family, work, community, and culture in northern Maine at the turn-of-the-century. Isaac Simpson’s photographic subjects, his wife Effie, their friends, family, neighbors and work-mates exemplify the character, necessities, and condition of the turn-of-the-century northern Mainer. Hear how this collection of photos was almost lost forever and enjoy a previously undocumented historical story through this vivid multidimensional presentation.


Sumner McKane is a filmmaker and composer based in Wiscasset, Maine. He records instrumental music, film scores, and music for media. He produces historical documentaries along with companion live presentations to his films. In a few short years, Sumner has built a reputation for innovative historical storytelling using multimedia, combining various mediums to tell a historical story in a live setting. His work has been featured on MPBN and NPR and he was recently awarded the 2014 Maine Arts Commission's Media & Performing Arts Fellowship.
