The 1992 presidential election was a triumph not only for Bill Clinton but also for the new breed of strategists who guided him to the White House and changed the face of politics in the process. For this thrilling, behind-closed-doors account of that campaign, the filmmakers closely followed the brainstorming and bull sessions of Clinton's crack team of consultants. Fleet-footed and entertaining, this is a vivid document of a political moment whose truths still ring in our ears

Unlocking the cage( Visual )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans. After thirty years of struggling with ineffective animal welfare laws, Steve and his legal team, the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), are making history by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform an animal from a thing with no rights to a person with legal protections. Supported by affidavits from primatologists around the world, Steve maintains that, based on scientific evidence, cognitively complex animals such as chimpanzees, whales, dolphins, and elephants have the capacity for limited personhood rights (such as bodily liberty) that would protect them from physical abuse. Using writs of habeas corpus (historically used to free humans from unlawful imprisonment), Wise argues on behalf of four captive chimpanzees in New York State. Unlocking the Cage captures a monumental shift in our culture, as the public and judicial system show increasing receptiveness to Steve's impassioned arguments. It is an intimate look at a lawsuit that could forever transform our legal system, and one man's lifelong quest to protect "nonhuman" animals

They open up about the struggles and excitement of their early years, the making of some of their landmark films, their strategies and approaches to filmmaking and their philosophies to capturing life on screen. It is at once an homage to documentary filmmaking, a rare personal look at its luminaries, and a precious gift for students and lovers of documentary film".--Conteneur
