A chronicle which provides a rare window into the international perception of the Iraq War, courtesy of Al Jazeera, the Arab world's most popular news outlet. Criticized by Cabinet members and Pentagon officials for reporting with a pro-Iraqi bias, and strongly condemned for frequently airing civilian casualties as well as footage of American POW's, the station has revealed (and continues to show the world) everything about the Iraq War that the Bush administration does not want the public to see

"From the 2011 overthrow of a 30-year dictator, through military rule, and culminating with the forced military removal of the Muslim Brotherhood president in the summer of 2013, we follow a group of Egyptian activists as they battle leaders and regimes, and risk their lives to build a new society of conscience. The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster. The film is made in a cinéma vérité style, giving us an up-close view of revolution from the ground."--Film press notes

Documental sobre el auge y estallido de la "burbuja" de Internet a través del relato de la creación, vida y caída de una empresa del sector de las nuevas tecnologías. Ideada en un principio como un apoyo para las escuelas de Administración de empresas, es una crónica del ascenso y caída de govWorks.com, una empresa creada por dos jóvenes empresarios que desapareció, al igual que otras muchas, en el "crack" del mercado tecnológico de 2000. A lo largo de dos años, las directoras siguieron a Kaleil Isaza Tuzman y Tom Herman en un proyecto que les hizo ganar mucho dinero al principio, para encontrarse en unos meses en plena crisis del sector...

Al-Maydān = The square( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in Arabic and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Square offers a truly unique insight into the human stories behind the political and social upheaval of revolution. Filmed on the ground during the Egyptian uprising, The Square explores far beyond the million man marches and bloody battles shown on international news, and is a truly immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories never normally heard. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights and struggling through multiple forces: from a brutal army dictatorship willing to crush protesters with military tanks, to the corrupt Muslim Brotherhood using mosques to manipulate voters. A multiple festival award winner and Oscar nominated documentary, The Square is an unmissable insight into the heart of the Arab Spring."--Container

Der Film beschreibt den Aufstieg und Fall einer Computerfirma der New-Technology-Ära. "Startup.com", eine der jüngsten Produktionen aus der "Cinema-Direct-Fabrik" von D.A. Pennebaker und Chris Hegedus, beschreibt im klassischen "Fly-on-the-wall"--Stil den Aufstieg und Fall einer Computerfirma der New-Technology-Ära: Diesmal tat sich Chris Hegedus mit der jungen Filmemacherin Jehane Noujaim zusammen, die auch schon die Kamera bei "Down from the Mountain" hatte. D.A. Pennebaker fungierte als Produzent. Wie in den großen früheren Filmen der Pennebakers gelingt es dem Team Hegedus/Noujaim wieder, ein gesellschaftliches Phänomen so zu personalisieren, dass daraus ein atemberaubend spannender Film in "Kinoqualität" entsteht. Die Geschichte von Kaleil Isaza Tuzman und seinen Freunden, die mit dem Konzept für GovWorks.com sowohl die rapide Explosion wie auch den Einsturz des überhitzten Internet-Markts miterleben, ist nicht nur brandaktuell, sondern vor allem zeitlos und hat mit ihren vielen Wendungen und Überraschungen gelegentlich den Charakter eines Real-Life-Krimis. Ursprünglich wollten Chris Hegedus und Jehane Noujaim nur die atemberaubend schnelle Entwicklung einer neuen Internetfirma namens GovWorks.com dokumentieren. Ein Kamerateam hat die beiden Gründer Kaleil I. Tuzman and Tom Herman über ein Jahr lang 18 Stunden am Tag auf Schritt und Tritt begleitet und mehr als 400 Stunden Material gedreht.

"A riveting behind-the-scenes look at the volatile internet industry, chronicling the turbulent development of New York based website govWorks.com. The film follows in painfully intimate detail the trials of partners Kaleil Isaza Tuzman and Tom Herman, best friends since childhood, as they progress from being rookies with just a business plan to assuming leadership of a nationally recognised organisation. What could go wrong? Everything. As the inhospitable economy of the year 2000 reduces high-flying dotcoms to bankruptcy, Tom & Kaleil struggle to save their company from a spectacular meltdown."

Gennaio 2011. La piazza Tahrir del Cairo si trasforma nel cuore pulsante di una speranza collettiva. Cristiani e musulmani la affollano fino all'inverosimile per ottenere un risultato che ormai è a portata di mano: l'uscita di scena del dittatore Mubarak e l'avvento della democrazia. Il giovane entusiasta Ahmed Hassan, l'attore angloegiziano Khalid Abdalla e l'aderente alla Fratellanza Musulmana Magdy Ashour sono tre tra le figure che emergono in un documentario che segue le vicende del popolo egiziano che passa dal trionfo alla disillusione, dall'esultanza allo sconforto senza però mai perdere la speranza in un futuro di reale condivisione delle scelte fondamentali (Mymovies)

"Rafea est la seconde épouse d'un bédouin sans travail. Cette Jordanienne, qui a quitté l'école très tôt, subvient seule à ses besoins et à ceux de ses quatre filles. Elle est alors sélectionnée pour passer six mois au Barefoot College, au Rajasthan. Elle va être formée à l'ingénierie solaire : circuits électroniques, soudure, cellules photovoltaïques... Un programme ambitieux pour des mères et des grands-mères qui, pour la plupart, ne savent ni lire ni écrire. Mais pourquoi les femmes ? Contrairement aux hommes qui quittent leur village une fois formés, elles mettent leurs connaissances et leurs ressources financières au service de la famille et de la communauté."

Résumé: Documentaire. Durant l'invasion de l'Irak, les reportages de la chaîne d'information en langue arabe Al-Jazeera ont provoqué maintes controverses en contredisant la rhétorique des médias officiels américains. La chaîne aura notamment suscité l'antipathie de Donald Rumsfeld, qui l'a accusée de se faire le "porte-voix d'Oussama Ben Laden". Particulièrement attentive à la colère des victimes civiles des bombardements, la station jouit d'une grande popularité auprès du public du Moyen-Orient, où certains leaders arabes ont pourtant cherché à la faire interdire. Intriguée par le succès et la réputation d'Al-Jazeera, la documentariste Jehane Noujaim filme les coulisses de son bureau central au Qatar alors que débute l'opération "Iraki Freedom", qui débouchera sur la prise de Bagdad par l'armée américaine. [(c) Médiafilm]. Contient, entre autres, les commentaires audio de la réalisatrice, du capitaine Josh Rushing de l'armée américaine et de Samir Khader et Hassan Ibrahim de la chaîne Al-Jazeera
