In 1845, President John Tyler signed a Congressional resolution to annex Texas, and by 1846, 4,000 troops were on the Rio Grande. Shortly thereafter, President James Polk proposed that Mexico sell its northern half to the U.S. Hostilities commenced and the U.S. crossed the border to occupy Matamoras, U.S. warships landed troops at Veracruz, who fought their way overland to Mexico City. Santa Anna led a defending army, but the Mexicans were overwhelmed. In the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico sold its northern territories to the U.S. for $15 million. For Mexico, the war was a traumatic event that resulted in the loss of many lives, half its territory, and a great deal of pride and hope for the future. However, it brought together a people who still were struggling with what it meant to be Mexican, just 20 years after achieving independence from Spain. This film examines both sides of a conflict that changed the shape of nations and left a legacy that endures to this day

"Interweaves video letters carried across the U.S./Mexico border by [filmmaker Heather Courtney] with the personal stories of women left behind in post-NAFTA Mexico, giving voice to 4 amazing women who feel the effects of failed immigration and trade policies on a daily basis. Focusing on a side of the immigration story rarely told by the media or touched upon in our national debate, LETTERS offers a fresh perspective, painting a complex portrait of families torn apart by economics, communities dying at the hands of globalization, and governments incapable or unwilling to do anything about it"--Container

Larry v. Lockney by Mark Birnbaum( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the 2,200 residents in the West Texas town of Lockney, Larry Tennahill is the only parent against the local school board's new mandatory drug testing policy. A third-generation cotton farmer, Tannahill believes the testing is a violation of his 12-year-old son's Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure. The documentary dramatically reveals the price of democracy, when one man stands against the majority. The issue of public safety versus individual rights is particularly relevant in the post 9/11 world. Flouting mob mentality in a town gripped by "War on Drugs" hysteria, Tannahill refuses to bend. The community soon grows just as rigid in its stance against him, especially after Tannahill's case moves from the principal s office to a federal courtroom. When he sues the school board to overturn the policy, the soft spoken farmer forms an unlikely alliance with the American Civil Liberties Union. In the battle over rights, Tannahill makes headlines around the country, loses his job and his home, and his family becomes the target of threats. The film takes a penetrating look at all sides in this landmark case that pitted one man against his friends and neighbors

Sweet tornado : Margo Jones and the American theater( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Margo Jones was one of the major innovators and visionaries in American theater history. She founded Theatre '47 (the name changed with every year) in Dallas, a non-profit professional theater that was the first of its kind in the country, and ran it until her untimely death in 1955. It provided the model for the resident theater movement of the 1960s and '70s that transformed the American stage. She was a crucial figure in the early career of Tennessee Williams and discovered playwright William Inge. Her 1955 world premiere in Dallas of Lawrence and Lee's "Inherit the Wind"--Initially rejected by eight Broadway producers - saved a major American play.
