What Is Critical Race Theory? | PolitiFact

There is no honest both sides argument going on about America’s origin and race, we only have a centuries-old, whitewashed history crafted by Plutocrats (leadership based on wealth and power) who have weaponized Intersectional Racialized Class, that continues to be propagated by our systems of education.

Sustainable Cinema No. 4: Shadow Play

Wind-Powered Shadow Play

The silhouettes of the ancient art of Shadow Play are achieved by light penetrating a translucent screen, and this sculpture uses the rotation of the windmill as the power to generate the backlight for the presentation.

Additionally, the wind turns a series of gears and plates that animate the puppets and move the background diorama to create a one-minute shadow theatre performance.
