"From the makers of 'The Invisible War' comes a startling expose of rape crimes on U.S. college campuses, their institutional cover-ups and the devastating toll they take on students and their families. Weaving together vérité footage and first person testimonies, the film follows the lives of several undergraduate assault survivors as they attempt to pursue--despite incredible pushback, harassment and traumatic aftermath--both their education and justice"--Container

Derrida( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An odd portrait of Jacques Derrida, one of the most polemical and influential theorists of the end of the 20th century. The filmmakers 'deconstruct' the French thinker's private and professional life, in an attempt to capture the processes of an inquisitive and iconoclastic mind which has greatly influenced our way of understanding the limits of language."--Festival
Derrida by Kirby Dick( Visual )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nous découvrons le père de la "déconstruction" au-delà du mythe, dans sa vie de tous les jours, avec ses amis, sa famille. Nous le suivons lors de son premier voyage en Afrique du Sud, et plus particulièrement, quand, après avoir visité la cellule de Nelson Mandela, il donne une conférence aux étudiants de l'université du Cap sur le sujet du pardon. Nous l' accompagnons de Paris à New-York, de son quartier aux amphis des plus grandes universités américaines où il enseigne. Nous apprenons au détour d'une de ses conférences sur le sujet des biographies à quel point il est difficile d'établir une corrélation entre la vie des personnages historiques et leur travail. Nous surprenons Derrida dans l'intimité, réfléchissant à la fidélité et au mariage, au narcissisme, à la célébrité et à l'importance de la pensée philosophique de l'amour
The hunting ground : the inside story of sexual assault on American college campuses by Kirby Dick( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The issue of sexual assault on college campuses is the focus of growing attention--from headlines about out-of-control fraternities, to the mattress protests at Columbia University, to the cover-up of rape accusations against prominent college athletes like football star Jamie Winston. The Hunting Ground, the new documentary by award-winning filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, has taken the country's concern over campus assualt to a new level, becoming a lightning rod for discussions following thousands of screenings on campuses around the country. The film has sparked calls for legislation by Senator Kristen Gillibrand and other prominent officials, been lauded by the White House, and unleashed backlash from university administrators, fraternities, and conservative media commentators. Now, in this companion book to the documentary film, readers will get behind-the-scenes deatails of how the film was created; hear the personal stories of women and men who've been assaulted; and meet experts on campus culture, fraternities, and university athletics who explain why this violence continues and what can be done to stop it. They will learn how leading writers and thinkers react to the film; how students, faculty, and alumni are standing up to their institutions; and what everyone can do to help effect change."-- Publisher

Unmade in China( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unmade in China ? follows the experience of a Los Angeles filmmaker who finds himself in Xiamen, China trying to direct a thriller, in Chinese, using a translator. He soon discovers that the old adage of making a film three times ? in the writing, shooting, and editing ? is in fact the opposite in China, where his film is ?unmade? three times - in the writing, shooting, and editing - with each subsequent stage of the process even more excruciating and devastating than the one that came before it.Determined however to make his film happen, even under the most adverse conditions, the eager filmmaker can't even begin to imagine the complications of making a government sanctioned film in Communist China.At first compromises are decorously made and he must s̀ell' himself on the fact that these changes are mandated by cultural imperatives or differences delineating east and west. But this notion of civil disparity is quickly disabused as lead actors are clandestinely recast in the middle of the night. And money is often withheld, as the filmmaker's script is literally hijacked and rewritten without consultation. At length the filmmaker takes a stand and boycotts the shoot, but even this is short lived.Fortunately, the Los Angeles filmmaker is accompanied for most of his Sino-Sisyphean journey by fellow documentarian and close friend, Tanner King Barklow (producer on Outrage and Invisible War) who intimately records the absurd lunacy that prevails. What results is an hilarious documentary of an overeager American striving to make art in a Communist regime that is itself unsure of its identity.Aside from a fun and frivolous tale that documents the trials and tribulations of an Angeleno making a film in China, this is also a cautionary tale, redolent with political resonance, about what compromises an artist suffers in order to make their work, and the measures he or she must take in order to sometimes right a wrong
