Forushande = The salesman by Taraneh Alidousti( Visual )

When their housing complex suddenly threatens to collapse, Emad and Rana have to find a place to stay, moving to a nearby shabby apartment owned by one of their acquaintances. One of the apartment rooms is locked and filled with the luggage of the former tenant. This inconvenient displacement and disruption of personal space soon intersects a violent and terrible personal intrusion in their home. In spite of trying to erase what happened, the terrible events break through their minds again and again, and Emad proceeds to find the culprit in a reprisal attempt. At the same time, the couple is playing the lead roles in Arthur Miller's play "Death of a Salesman", and the deterioration of relationships in the play eerily mirrors the breakdown of understanding between the film's characters
Sir! No sir! : a David Zeiger film( Visual )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In archival footage and interviews, this film tells the story of an almost forgotten fact of the Vietnam era: the war's most crucial naysayers were soldiers--in the barracks and on the front lines--the GI anti-war movement. Beginning with acts of conscience by individuals, dissatisfaction escalated with the number of conscripts. Courts-martial, destroyed careers, imprisonment in military stockades or federal penitentiaries and desertions were common. There were also pirate radio stations, underground newspapers, a modern "underground railway" that helped soldiers desert and move to Canada, coffeehouses near U.S. bases where opinions shaped and altered by first-hand experiences were shared, and groups organized around every imaginable axis, which led to anti-war sentiment among U.S. troops being recognized at the highest levels in the Pentagon. On one level, this film is a corrective to the rah-rah rhetoric about Vietnam pushed by the right wing, while undermining the popular fiction that opposition to the war came strictly from outside the military, and reversing the 20 year process of erasing the GI Movement from the collective memory of the nation and the world
The fabric of the cosmos by B Greene( Visual )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed physicist Brian Greene reveals a mind-boggling reality beneath the surface of our everyday world ... [taking] us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time, and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we'd hardly recognize -- a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected. Brian Greene is going to let you in on a secret: We've all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe -- that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists -- just might be wrong. Interweaving provocative theories, experiments, and stories with crystal-clear explanations and imaginative metaphors like those that defined the groundbreaking and highly acclaimed series "The Elegant Universe," "The Fabric of the Cosmos" aims to be the most compelling, visual, and comprehensive picture of modern physics ever seen on television."--Website

"In a small, remote, mountaintop primary school in the Kenyan bush, hundreds of children jostle for a chance of free education newly promised by the government. One applicant causes astonishment when he seeks enrolment. He is Maruge (Oliver Litondo), an 84-year-old veteran of his country's 1950's Mau Mau uprisings against the British colonists. Having fought for his country he now feels he must also have the chance at an education long denied - even if he has to share a classroom with six-year-old children. Opposed by parents and officials alike, Maruge finds a champion in head teacher Jane Obinchu (Naomie Harris) who, moved by his passionate plea, joins in a fierce fight to ensure the old man gets his place in the classroom. From director Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl) The First Grader is a heartwarming story of one man's fight for what he believes is his right in overcoming the burdens of his past; and a triumphant testimony to the transforming power of education."--Container
