"Like Breaking Bad in real life," (Newsweek), Cartel Land plunges us into the heart of darkness, the front lines of Mexico’s narco wars, where the Knights Templar wreak havoc on anyone who opposes them, and into Arizona’s "Cocaine Alley", where paramilitaries vainly attempt to bolster the border patrols.

Join noted curator and Prelinger Archives content editor Bill Taylor as we take a trip through the heyday of industrial films, with a special emphasis on music! The novel idea of phone colors is introduced in "Once Upon A Honeymoon", "In My Merry Oldsmobile" is a Fleischer Studios animated salute to the car, featuring many ribald ideas you couldn’t get away with today; The 1956 Motorama, Models, and Music gleefully collide in the loopy “Design For Dreaming”, The Swingin’ 6 sings about the groovy new thing called the “Zip Code”, and this salute concludes with one of the beautiful industrial short films ever made, the Jam Handy Studios salute to the American Automobile worker, “Master Hands”.

It’s not a plant, not a fungi, and not an animal. It has no brain… yet it’s alive, it feeds, makes decisions, and it moves. Welcome to the world of slime mold, a single cell substance so strange scientists speculate it may be a visitor from outer space! "Imagine if Stanley Kubrick and Douglas Trumbull were tasked with making a 1970s educational science film about the pods from Don Siegel’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers and you’re some way to understanding The Creeping Garden."
