The Storm that drowned a city( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 680 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

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Yes Men fix the world by Andy Bichlbaum( Visual )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A wickedly fun skewering of corporate greed, THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD is the true story of two mischief-makers who pose as the representatives of companies they despise. In this wonderfully therapeutic film, Yes Men Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno impose cosmic (and comic) justice by any means necessary. To a television audience of 300 million, Andy (posing as a Dow Chemicals spokesman) announces that Dow will finally compensate the victims of the Bhopal disaster, causing the company's stock to instantly plunge by $2 billion. At an oil industry conference, the Yes Men introduce a wonderful new Exxon miracle fuel made from the bodies of global warming losers. Through a series of increasingly brazen actions, THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD "shines with a raw wit and originality" (Newsweek) as it follows the twisted logic of corporate capitalism to its absurd conclusion, exposing the hilarious and awful absurdities of an economic system that ruthlessly rules the planet."--Container
