This lesson is made concrete through the experience of youth in Matamoros, Mexico, where a severe water shortage led the city to take the unusual step of putting local children in charge of changing adult attitudes and habits. Thousands of schoolchildren were enlisted as "Water Detectives"--Educated in concepts of water conservation, and encouraged to discuss the importance of proper water usage with adults.

Matamoros lowered its water consumption by nearly 20% in just one year! Featuring lively narration from Mariana, Carlos and Raoul - three Water Detectives from Matamoros - the film's message is inspiring for school children everywhere

Shameless : the art of disability by Bonnie Sherr Klein( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art, activism and disability are the starting point for what unfolds as a funny and intimate portrait of five surprising individuals. Director Bonnie Sherr Klein (Not a Love Story, and Speaking Our Peace) has been a pioneer of women's cinema and an inspiration to a generation of filmmakers around the world. SHAMELESS: the ART of Disability marks Klein's return to a career interrupted by a catastrophic stroke in 1987. Always the activist, she now turns the lens on the world of disability culture, and ultimately, the transformative power of art. Joining Klein are a group of artists with diverse (dis)abilities. Humourist David Roche is taking his one man show, The Church of 80% Sincerity, to New York's off-Broadway. Poet and scholar Catherine Frazee is navigating a jam-packed schedule of teaching and speaking engagements. Dancer, choreographer and impresario Geoff McMurchy is organizing KickstART, an international festival of disability art. Sculptor and writer Persimmon Blackbridge is creating mixed media portraits from "meaningful junk". Klein gathers these artists for a pyjama party where they take a subversive look at Hollywood stereotypes of people with disabilities: The Monster, The Saint, The Psycho, the Poor Little Crippled Girl, etc. The artists decide to turn the tables, making a pact to meet a year later at the KicksART Festival with the intent of creating their own images of disability. The film tracks this motley gang of five from the BC Gulf Islands, to Nova Scotia and south to San Francisco while they create and then present their multi-faceted self-representations. As we get to know each of these remarkable people driven by a passion for art and transformation, the everyday complexities and unexpected richness of life with a disability are exposed. Packed with humour and raw energy, SHAMELESS: the ART of Disability is a revelation of a film: honest, vulnerable and filled

Being caribou by Leanne Allison( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmentalist Leanne Allison and wildlife biologist Karsten Heuer follow a herd of 120,000 caribou on foot, across 1,500 kilometres of rugged Arctic tundra. The husband-and-wife team wants to raise awareness of threats to the caribou's survival. They let the caribou guide them through a wild and remote landscape, from the central Yukon to coastal Alaska and back. During the five-month journey, they ski and hike across mountains, swim icy rivers, brave Arctic weather and endure hordes of mosquitoes. They survive an encounter with a hungry grizzly bear that forces them to reconcile what it means to be a part of true wilderness. Hunger, fatigue and pain become routine, but the sacrifice is worth it when they witness the miracle of birth just metres from their tent. Dramatic footage and video diaries provide an intimate perspective of an epic expedition. At stake is the herd's delicate habitat, which could be devastated if proposed oil and gas development goes ahead in the herd's calving grounds in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Nous voici dans le décor idyllique de North Vancouver, où les sans-abri du coin ont transformé la collecte des bouteilles vides en une sous-culture florissante : la course de chariots d'épicerie. Ancien adepte de la planche à neige et réalisateur de films de sport, Murray Siple revient au cinéma pour relater l'histoire de ces itinérants dans Les Chariots de l'Enfer. Parmi cette fraternité de déshérités se trouvent des hommes comme Big Al, conducteur de chariot intrépide qui fonce à flanc de montagne; Fergie, un alcoolique encore séduisant qui se balade entre son repaire de broussailles, le refuge pour sans-abri et la cellule de dégrisement du poste de police; et Bob, un artiste musicien plein de sensibilité qui récupère juste assez de bouteilles pour faire fleurir son jardin et son art. Alors que se tissent entre eux des liens de plus en plus étroits, le besoin qu'éprouve Murray de retrouver l'euphorie de ses jours de planche à neige s'incarne dans un acte ultime d'audace et de confiance
