FDL’S MOVIE NIGHT MONDAY: A Survey of Open Space. “?Set in the wake of America’s great western expansion, A Survey of Open Space is both a portrait of bike touring and a meditation on wilderness. The film follows a pair of urbanites as they embark on a 4000-mile bicycle ride in search of the last wild place in America; to their dismay they find it. The epic journey begins on the Mexican border and spans the continent, touching three oceans before concluding in the Arctic. Along with breathtaking scenery, the camera also captures the riders changing attitudes towards and definitions of wilderness, highlighting the conflict between the ideal of the wild, and the actualities of disappearing wilderness at the beginning of the 21st century.The film asks the viewer to consider whether there still is a wild, and is it worth anything, in fact or concept?” Join Jane Hamsher and her guest Filmmaker Peat Duggins for the discussion, Monday 8pm ET, 5pm PT.
