The times of Harvey Milk by Robert P Epstein ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documentary examines the political life of the self-proclaimed "Mayor Of Castro Street," N.Y. stockbroker turned San Francisco activist Harvey Milk, the first openly gay politician elected to public office in California. Milk was elected to a City Supervisor position in the '70s, when a successful gay politician was an anomaly, but Milk made the most of his brief time in power. When Dan White killed Milk and Mayor George Moscone, the loss experienced by Milk's supporters was profound. White robbed the gay-rights movement of a charismatic leader and eloquent voice, but he accidentally gave it something a smart political operative like Milk would surely have appreciated the power and value of: a bona fide martyr

The bad lieutenant port of call New Orleans by Werner Herzog ( Visual )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sgt. Terence McDonagh of the New Orleans PD has been promoted to lieutenant, thanks to an act of bravery just after Hurricane Katrina. He jumped into the murky, rising waters of a flooded jail to save a prisoner, injured his back in the process, and now he's addicted to painkillers. That's OK, though, because McDonagh is also addicted to every drug on the planet, and helps himself by raiding the evidence room after drug busts. The slaughter of a Senegalese family--parents, grandmother, and two young children--lands in his lap. The prime suspect is drug dealer Big Fate, who causes Big Fear in the locals, so it's going to be almost impossible to find anyone to connect him to the crime. What with his constant search for drugs, his high-maintenance call girl girlfriend, and a father who's drinking himself to death, is it any wonder the Lieutenant's gone bad?

"Erin Gruwell, enseignante novice de 23 ans, a choisi comme premier poste un lycée difficile de Long Beach. Ses élèves l'ignorent superbement et se regroupent en clans, prêts à s'affronter au moindre prétexte. L'ambiance empire au fil des jours, en dépit des efforts sincères et maladroits d'Erin pour prendre en main cette classe d'"irrécupérables". Avec tact et humour, en évitant d'instinct le piège du paternalisme, Erin parvient à instaurer avec la classe un vrai rapport de confiance. Pas à pas, à travers l'usage de la parole puis de l'écriture, elle accompagne ses élèves dans une lente et délicate reconquête de leur amour propre, libérant en eux des forces, des talents et une énergie insoupçonnés."
