Not long ago, the New Wave featured a story about David Mullin, an associate professor of cell and molecular biology at Tulane University, who developed a groundbreaking method of using animal feces to produce an alternative to gasoline.

While a patent is pending on his successful process of turning cellulosic materials into butanol, Mullin is lending his support to a group of young filmmakers who shared his story with the world in a documentary titled “A Culture of Renewal.”

The documentary is a semifinalist in the Focus Forward Filmmaker Competition where the grand prize is $100,000.

After viewing the film, be sure to cast your vote in the top right corner of the video player by pressing the vote button.

A list of all the semifinalists can be found here. Voting closes on Thursday, Dec. 20.
