Well that wasn’t what I was expecting! Notably twisted for 1960, with pervy overtones that set the stage for later noir-ish psychosexual fare from Lynch, Cronenberg, Verhoeven, etc.
My dad, Marcus Sherman, appears throughout this short documentary from his time at the New Alchemy Institute in the 1970s on Cape Cod. The group worked on various projects that fall under what would now be considered “hippie modernism”, with a focus on sustainable living.
One of the things my dad worked on, and is shown in the film, was developing low-tech windmills to pump water and generate electricity. This work would lead him to other related projects all over…
I’m pretty sure the people who made this movie were intentionally trolling people like me who would notice the anachronism of Calibri appearing in a font menu in 1994 – more than a decade before Calibri was even released. The thing that makes me believe it was an intentional troll is that the font that’s actually rendered in the text box isn’t even Calibri.
