Ben Dobyns & L. Gabriel Gonda; 2018; USA; 40 min.
In this open-source series filmed in Seattle, magic is real—and it’s getting stronger. Some fear it; others risk their lives for it. Our heroine Whit enlists the help of “strowlers” (who want to keep magic free) to protect a charmed young girl. Meanwhile, her girlfriend Amanda is developing a magic-hunting device for the government! Can true love survive such unlikely circumstances? Filmmakers and fans worldwide have contributed to this unique cinematic universe, told from the point of view of people on the fringes—artists, revolutionaries, immigrants, dreamers—resisting the powerful forces that want to limit free self-expression. After the screening, see clips from spin-offs and learn how you can become a strowler yourself with director Ben Dobyns and producer Lindy Boustedt, both of Seattle.
