My friend Alberta Chu is an incredible documentary filmmaker, who focuses her work on the blending of technology and culture. She recently finished a short film called ELECTRUM, about a fantastically wealthy weirdo rancher in New Zealand who commissions the erection of a gargantuan Tesla Coil next to his house.

You can find out more about the video, and the other stuff Alberta is interested in at her site, Future Culture.
