Guerrillas in our midst by A Harrison( Visual )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents a savvy exploration of the machinations of the commercial art-world during its boom in the 1980s, and brings the Guerrilla Girls to the screen. This anonymous group of art terrorists has succeeded in putting racism and sexism on the agenda in the art-world since 1985, and their witty and creative tactics have changed the face of political and cultural activism. Interviews with key figures in the Manhattan art scene, record-breaking auction sales, exhibition openings and interviews with the Guerrillas Girls themselves combine to highlight how the myth of the heroic male painter is perpetuated."--Container

In 1975, after years of civil war, Cambodia fell to Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge revolutionary forces. Pol Pot proclaimed "Year Zero", the birth of a classless agrarian society. Residents of cities and towns were forcefully evacuated to labor camps in the countryside. The educated and religious were killed. In four years one quarter of the Cambodian people died of starvation, disease and execution. In 1979, Vietnam invaded Cambodia, installing a puppet government that has held power for over a decade, despite political and economic isolation. War continues as the Khmer Rouge and non-communist factions fight the Vietnam-backed government for power in Cambodia. Based on the memories and stories of Cambodians in the U.S. and Cambodia, this poetic documentary reveals the appalling suffering of the Cambodian people caught between the warring factions for so many years. The film is shot in beautifully photoraphed short sequences, interspersed with quotes from Buddhist philosophy
