  The 13th annual Archaeology Channel Film and Video Festival tells a visual human story, May 9th through 15th in Eugene, in a vastly expanded festival that also includes a Conference on Cultural Heritage Media, and a variety of other events. Director Rick Pettigrew speaks with Eric Alan about the Antikythera Mechanism, a two-thousand-year-old Greek computer featured in the film The X-Ray Time Machine. He also talks about the unique cultural exchange between Iran and Eugene, and the challenges of overcoming visa issues for foreign filmmakers.
