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
Building the great cathedrals( Visual )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carved from a hundred million pounds of stone, soaring effortlessly atop a spiderweb of masonry, Gothic cathedrals are marvels of human achievement and artistry. But how did medieval builders reach such spectacular heights? Consuming the labor of entire towns, sometimes taking a hundred years to build, these architectural marvels were crafted from just hand tools and stone. Many now teeter on the brink of catastrophic collapse. To save them, an international team of engineers, architects, art historians, and computer scientists searches the naves, bays, and bell-towers for clues to how the dream of these heavenly temples on earth came true. On this dazzling journey inside the jewels of Gothic architecture, NOVA reveals the hidden formulas, drawn from the pages of the Bible itself, that drove medieval builders ever upward

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring eyewitness testimony, Nova takes an in-depth look at what made Hurricane Katrina so deadly and analyzes how, despite technically sophisticated flood and storm defenses, this event has resulted in unprecedented destruction for the Gulf Coast. In less than 12 hours on August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Louisiana coast, leading to more than a thousand deaths and transforming a city of over one million into an uninhabitable swamp. "Storm That Drowned a City" is NOVA's definitive investigation into the science of Hurricane Katrina, combining a penetrating analysis of what went wrong with a dramatic, minute-by-minute unfolding of events told through eyewitness testimony. What made this storm so deadly? Will powerful hurricanes like Katrina strike more often? How accurately did scientists predict its impact, and why did the levees protecting New Orleans fail?

Sir! No sir! : a David Zeiger film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 605 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

Gustave Courbet : place of death( Visual )

This program tells the sensational story of Courbet's Burial while analyzing the subtleties and surprises that underlie its deceptively innocent facade
