The Interrupters( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Interrupters tells stories of three violence interrupters who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. The film's main subjects work for an innovative organization, CeaseFire. Founded by an epidemiologist who believes that the spread of violence mimics the spread of infectious diseases, and so the treatment should be similar: go after the most infected, and stop the infection at its source. One of the cornerstones of the organization is the violence interrupters program. The Interrupters--who have credibility on the streets because of their own personal histories--intervene in conflicts before they explode into violence

"A thrilling, immersive documentary that takes viewers deep inside the dangerous world of commercial fishing. Set aboard a hulking fishing vessel as it navigates the treacherous waves off the New England coast--the very waters that once inspired Moby Dick--the film captures the harsh, unforgiving world of the fishermen in starkly haunting, yet beautiful detail"--Container

After being brutally attacked outside a bar and in spite of recovering from a coma and extensive physical injuries, Mark Hogancamp suffered brain damage and nearly total memory loss.

When his photographs were discovered by an art magazine, a New York gallery invited him to show his work, forcing him to choose between his self-contained world and the larger world from which he had retreated

Late one night, an array of men--a police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor, a murder suspect and others--pack themselves into three cars and drive through the endless Anatolian country side, searching for a body across serpentine roads and rolling hills. The suspect claims he was drunk and can't quite remember where the body was buried; field after field, they dig but discover only dirt. As the night draws on, tensions escalate, and individual stories slowly emerge from the weary small talk of the men. Nothing here is simple, and when the body is found, the real questions begin
Sweetgrass by Ilisa Barbash( Visual )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An unsentimental elegy to the American West, Sweetgrass follows the last modern-day cowboys to lead their flocks of sheep up into Montana's breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. This astonishingly beautiful film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, and vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed."--Conteneur

Jerichow by Christian Petzold( Visual )

4 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eternal triangle: a rich guy; his bored, beautiful, blond wife; and a rugged stranger, down on his luck and ready for action. What more do you need? In this case, to know that the rich guy is a Turk who is still, despite having spent virtually his entire life in Germany, a permanent outsider. That the hot blond wife has a colorful past and owes large debts (which hubby now holds over her head). That the rugged stranger is a former soldier who received a dishonorable discharge after serving in Afghanistan, living in his dead mother's house. Jerichow is a nondescript spot in the former East Germany, where capitalism still has a somewhat primitive, half-criminal feel. The film conveys a sense of desperation and defeat, and highlights that what can happen at the crossroads of lust, loneliness, and materialism
