Focuses on the United Workers Cooperative Colony, aka the Coops, the most grass-roots and member-driven of the Jewish labor housing cooperatives, where many of the residents were Communists or sympathetic to the communist movement. Beginning as a stalwartly secular East European Jewish working class enclave, they were part of an international movement. This film bears witness to lives lived with courage across the barriers of race, nation, language, convention, and sometimes even common sense

The first film for an American audience about Gamal Abdel Nasser, one of the Arab world's most transformative leaders. In 1952, as an unknown young Egyptian colonel, Nasser led a coup that became a revolution. Over the next eighteen years, Nasser emerged as a titanic figure, and as a champion of Arab progress and African liberation. But what he could not offer was democracy; instead he established the region's first and much emulated military authorization regime

Last Stand at Little Big Horn( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Emmy award-winning program, this episode from the PBS American Experience collection investigates the 1876 event that has become American folklore "the Battle of Little Big Horn" also known as "Custer's Last Stand." Using journals, oral accounts, and Native American ledger drawings as well as archival and feature films, this program explores this watershed moment from two views: white and Native American accounts. The video reaches conclusions that are more complex than those commonly held, with Custer emerging not as a fool, or a hero, but a competent commander who simply got more than he could handle. The program examines why the Last Stand at Little Big Horn has been one of the most frequently depicted moments in American history, and one of the least understood

Nasser's republic : the making of modern Egypt( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary about Gamal Abdel Nasser, one of the Arab world's most transformative leaders. In 1952, as a unknown young Egyptian colonel, Nasser led a coup that became a revolution. Over the next 18 years he challenged Western hegemony abroad, confronted Islamism at home, and faced deep divisions among the Arabs, emerging as a titanic figure, champion of Arab progress and African liberation. But what he could not offer was democracy; instead, he established the region's first and much emulated military authoritarian regime. A man of enormous charisma and ambition, Nasser became caught in the coils of his own power, dying at 52 with many dreams unrealized. The Arab Spring and its aftermath are his legacy
