An Honest Liar – Trailer

An Honest Liar tells the incredible life story of famed magician-turned-skeptic and enemy of deception, James “The Amazing” Randi. The film brings to life his infamous escapades that publicly exposed psychics, faith healers and con artists with quasi-religious fervor. Today, Randi himself faces the price of a deception that might cause the loss of his partner of 26 years. Along the way, the film will reveal the nature of magic and deception and show how easily our perceptions can be fooled – by magicians, con artists, and even documentaries.

How the Dutch got their cycle paths

How did the Dutch get their cycling infrastructure? This question keeps coming back because it is of course relevant to people who want what the Dutch have.

Road building traditions go back a long way and they are influenced by many factors. But the way Dutch streets and roads are built today is largely the result of deliberate political decisions in the 1970s to turn away from the car centric policies of the prosperous post war era. Changed ideas about mobility, safer and more livable cities and about the environment led to a new type of streets in the Netherlands.

Searching For Sugar Man – Trailer

It’s a documentary about an American musician that nobody heard about.

Nobody heard about him in America, but in South Africa, a totally different story. Right there Rodriguez he was more famous then Elvis.

It seems to be a beautiful documentary with a exciting story. I’m really looking forward to watching it.
