Philadelphia-based Beibin, who also runs Bloodlink Records, co-founded the fest in 1999 and began taking it on the road two years later using what he calls "a stripped-down, punk-rock style." Since then, he's brought the concept to approximately thirty countries and locations throughout the States. The lineup of material coming to Colorado includes USA Under Attack, a cinematic assault on racism by Danish filmmaker/musician Nikolaj Vijborg, and footage courtesy of the provocative performance artists known as the Yes Men. "Expect to see lots of culture jamming," Beibin says, "and stuff that usually flies under the radar."
