Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence by Nagisa, 1932- Oshima ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a Japanese prison camp on Java in 1942, two British officers, John Lawrence and Jack Celliers, encounter camp commander Yonoi and his sergeant Hara. Things had been going pretty well, until charismatic, rebellious Celliers arrived. Yonoi is a devotee of the samurai ideal; neither he nor Hara can understand the stoic way in which the British prisoners accept their situation of defeat. Lawrence speaks Japanese, and ceaselessly tries to mediate between the prisoners and their overseers, translating both the words and the values of the two races. Celliers' attitude, however, is more comprehensible to Yonoi. He and Celliers arrive at a sort of détente, based on an admiration for the other, but this eventually turns into a contest of wills as the camp's carefully nurtured equilibrium is destroyed

"In 2005, a handful of Danish cartoons sparked a worldwide debate over freedom of expression-and the freedom to express religious outrage.

This program travels to Lebanon, Iran, Syria, Qatar, and Turkey, as well as to France and Denmark, in search of answers. Viewers will encounter a wide array of perspectives from influential figures-such as Raed Hlayhel, the Danish Imam who moved to Lebanon to spearhead protests; Sheikh Yusef al-Qaradawi, the al-Jazeera Islamic televangelist who called for a ""day of anger"" against the cartoons; and leading staff members of newspapers that published them.

"South African filmmaker Khalo Matabane takes a journey across the new South Africa in a minibus taxi, a popular medium of transport for ordinary people. He travels from his village in the north where he was born, to the south and the camera never leaves the vehicle. He meets characters who have a range of provocative stories and at times the camera captures obscure images. There are encounters with a rightwing farmer, a black classical musician who plays Bach, a young girl with a tattoo of Africa on her shoulder. There is talk of history and memory, interracial love, racism, and theories on everything, while others just choose to dance the dance of the new country"--Container
