A touching story about women whose emotional lives are as rich as their surroundings are poor. Maria is a troubled woman who drinks, smokes, and steals, desperate for oblivion and angry at the entire world.

Her mother cooks, crochets and befriends the gentlemanly neighbor who lives downstairs, while patiently trying to reach out to her own daughter
Once upon a time Baghdad during the Abbasid dynasty ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The victory of the Abbasids over the Umayyads signified much more than the replacement of one dynasty with another. With it, Islam saw the birth of a multiethnic concept of power, in which both Arab and non-Arab Muslims could share authority. This program presents the Abbasid Caliphate at its peak, enthroned in its prestigious capital city: Baghdad. The defining project of Caliph al-Ma'amun, the translation by an army of clerks of all the ancient writings his emissaries could procure, is spotlighted-an achievement that set the stage for an eventual showdown between religious and secular scholars

"The victory of the Abbisids over the Umayyads signified much more than the replacement of one dynasty with another. With it, Islam saw the birth of a multiethnic concept of power, in which both Arab and non-Arab Muslims could share authority.

Special attention is given to the prosperous reign of Abdel Rahman III and the flowering of a Muslim culture that respectfully welcomed the contributions of Christians and Jews alike

The Arabs make their entrance Islam and empire = Les Arabes entrent en scène ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As the shadow of the Dark Ages fell across Europe, the scene for the advancement of Western civilization shifted to the Near East. This program charts the rise of the Arab empire, from its roots in the long-standing rivalry between the Byzantines and the Sassanids. Nodes along that timeline include the dual role of Mecca as a place of worship and as a center for trade, the life of Muhammad and the birth of Islam, the rapid expansion of Arabia at the expense of Byzantium and the Sassanid kingdom, and the internecine struggle between Arab factions that led to the founding of the Umayyad dynasty."

Everything under the sun astronomy, mathematics, and Islam ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Picking up mathematics and astronomy from where the ancient Greeks left off, Arab scholars paved the way for the Copernican revolution and the rebirth of science in Europe. This program reveals the Empire of the Caliphate's role in developing the Indo-Arabic decimal system, algebra, and algorithms and in refining the science of optics and the Ptolemaic model of the solar system. The application of astronomy to sacred ends, such as accurately fixing the time for prayers, the direction of Mecca, and the start of Ramadan, is also considered"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site
They surveyed the world Les arpenteurs du monde ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During the 10th century, people routinely journeyed from one end of the huge Arab empire to the other--and even into non-Islamic lands far into the north and east. Who were these travelers, what did they seek? This program captures what it was like to be a pilgrim in a caravan bound for Mecca, an official carrying out the Caliph's orders, a scholar seeking knowledge, a merchant in search of new markets, and an explorer charting the seas. Some of the era's most memorable personalities--mathematician al-Khuwarizmi, the chronicler Abul Hasan Ali al Mas'udi, the cartographer al-Qasim Muhammad ibn Hawqal--are profiled"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site

Juanjo persuades the initially reluctant Tony that Laura will provide the couple with a perfect cover. Although the robbery comes off without a hitch, Juanjo takes off with the cash, leaving Tony and Laura fugitives from both the law and from the psychotically angry Maxi and Moco
The thousand and one nights Les mille et une nuits ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Encompassing fairy tales, romances, legends, fables, parables, and anecdotes, "The thousand and one nights" is a composite of popular oral stories that develops over several centuries, mainly during the Empire of the Caliphate. This program scrutinizes the wonderfully audacious tale of Scheherezade and what it tells the attentive reader about the dreams of Arab men and women during the empire's golden age. Recurring themes such as hunger for adventure and a desire to be free from tradition are explored, as well as a conception of power that glorifies self-control and disparages violence"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site
An art of living Un art de vivre ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As life among the aristocracy in Damascus and Baghdad attained its zenith of refinement, another important cultural center was developing in Islamic Cordoba. This program focuses on the remarkable cultural contributions of Ziryab, a talented young musician who fled the East for Andalusia and became the era's preeminent arbiter of style and taste. After creating a popular new form of music and perfecting the lute and other instruments, he went on to radically reshape Arab high society, inventing new fashions and hairstyles, introducing fine dining, and creating a thriving market for all manner of luxury goods"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site
The Muslim town La ville musulmane ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although the first towns the Arabs founded during the expansion of Arabia were only vast campsites, it was not long before their temporary dwellings gave way to the magnificent signature architecture of Arabian culture. What was it like to live in the Arab cities of the Abbasid dynasty, grand oases of refinement and innovation? This program describes key centers of the Muslim town, inluding the mosque and the souk; technical achievements such as the waterwheel; and the roles of the prince, the doctors of the law, and the leaders of the various social groups in keeping order within the bustling community"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site

The secrets of the human body Islam's contribution to medicine ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This program investigates the practice of medicine during the Abbasid Caliphate, offering profiles of Al-Ma'amun's House of Wisdom; Rhazes, whose Kitab al-hawi outlines an exemplary clinical approach; Avicenna, universally known for his Canon of Medicine; and Abul Qasim al-Zahrawi, the father of modern surgery. The Islamic concern with the relationship between the body and the soul is also discussed, as is the founding of hospitals, one of the great achievements of Islamic society"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site
Forgetting arabic Oublier l'arabe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Why was Islamic philosophy, once the epitome of learning, eventually rejected by Muslims? And why, after assimilating it, did Europeans distance themselves from its formulators? This program seeks to understand the religious climate of the late Middle Ages, in which universities and madrassas became centers of power and models for evolving sociopolitical systems. The potentially heretical nature of philosophy is also analyzed--in Islamic lands the djinni of intellectuality was put back in the bottle, but in Christendom it escaped the control of those who used it, paving the way for Renaissance humanism"--Films for the Humanities & Sciences web site
L'éveil de l'Europe. Europe awakes ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As dissension mounted between the rival Arab dynasties in Baghdad, Cordoba, and Cairo, Christendom rallied to oppose the Muslims in Spain and Jerusalem. This program plots out the decline of the Caliphate and the acquisition of Arab knowledge by Europeans starved for Islam's intellectual riches. The rise of feudalism and papal authority, the gradual defeat of the Muslim rulers in Spain, the Seljuk usurpation of Abbisid power in the Near East, and the Crudades are explained, along with the concerted efforts of Catholic authorities to translate the vast libraries of Arab scientific and philosophical texts

2 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"If a single individual may be said to have embodied the development of the Cuban secessionist movement, that person was surely José Martí. Set within the context of the turbulent relations between Cuba, Spain, and the U.S.A., this program spotlights Martí, a striking orator, sagacious propagandist, and inspiring leader, and the movement that he founded, Cuba Libre. Although killed during a skirmish at Dos Rios in 1895, Martí lived on as the emblem of the undying desire of the Cuban exile population to free Cuba from foreign control"--Container
