Aspen Film’s mission is to present great short films that engage, inspire and challenge audiences while at the same time providing educational programming for future filmmakers through its FilmEducates programs. FilmEducates programs bring visiting filmmakers into classrooms to discuss their work with students while simultaneously teaching young people the craft of visual storytelling.

Few towns on Earth can rival Aspen when it comes to contrast. Wiseman captures this duality in an impressive series of carefully juxtaposed scenes: elderly fiddlers perform for change outside luxury boutiques; begrimed miners mine silver ore while skiers glide down pristine slopes; Old West values clash with society ball excesses at a society ball; Old West values collide with super-rich excesses at society balls – this film from Wiseman ranks as one of his finest works.
