The mystery of Chaco Canyon( Visual )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ever since she discovered the 'Sun Dagger' twenty years ago, Anna Sofaer and a team of researchers have been exploring the enigmas posed by massive prehistoric ruins in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. Now a new explanation of the mystery is emerging. For years archaeologists have assumed that Chaco was primarily an ancient trading center. This film shows that it was, instead, a complex ceremonial center, harmonized by extraordinary astronomical alignments of buildings and roads, and elegant light and shadow markings. Aerial and time lapse footage, computer modeling, and interviews with scholars show how the Chacoan culture oriented and located its major buildings in relations to the sun and moon. Contemporary Pueblo Indians, descendants of the Chacoans, speak of the spiritual significance of Chaco's mysteries in their world today."--Back of container insert

Gore Vidal : the United States of amnesia( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an unashamedly opinionated film. In Gore Vidal's America, the political coup has already happened. The right have triumphed and the human values of the liberals have been consigned to history. But how did this happen and who organized it? In this film Gore Vidal's acerbic, opinionated and informed approach rips away at the facade of the new America. The film dramatizes Gore's political views and his concern at the present state of American democracy using interviews and historical footage of his famous appearances on television and talk shows over the last fifty years. In the recently filmed interviews Gore examines the course of American history and policy making and draws dramatic conclusions on the fate of the nation in the modern age
