I'm a child anorexic( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Therapists in America and Europe have noticed a disturbing trend: anorexia now appears in elementary-school-age children. This film documents the highs and lows of a London clinic's 12-week program, during which malnourished patients must confront and conquer their fears of eating. Girls as young as eight enter the clinic dangerously emaciated and depressed-and although most battle their way back to good health and reunions with loved ones, do their attitudes toward food really change? Once home, will they revert to old ways? The documentary reveals frighteningly distorted beliefs that run rampant among the young patients-one girl even insists that water contains calories-and it offers surprising revelations about the role of idealized body images in the media
Bertolt Brecht( Visual )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German poet, playwright, and theatrical reformer who developed the drama as a social and ideological forum is the subject of this program, in which those who knew him discuss his life and many works. Excerpts from plays such as Mother Courage and Her Children, The Life of Galileo, The Good Woman of Setzuan, and Antigone highlight the development of Brecht's austere form of irregular verse. A later work, A Little Orgnum for the Theater, is the embodiment of Brecht's idea of true Marxist drama. It also showcases his theory of Epic Theater, which encourages spectators to view performances as scientific analyses of human behavior, rather than illusions of reality
