Fuel( Visual )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The message of "Fuel" is clear: oil is bad, alternative energy is good. Its goals are simple: put Big Oil out of business, and sell the American public on the virtues of cleaner energy sources, such as wind, solar, and ethanol. Josh Tickell, an alternative-energy zealot, has both driven cross-country in a car powered only by fast-food cooking oil and written a book about it. His film is a combination of autobiography, first-person travelogue, history and ecology lesson, and a shamelessly inspirational call to action. Using charts, animated graphics and historical footage, Tickell ties our national obsession with oil to melting glaciers, melting economies, the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, and the collapse of the American way of life. Eleven years in the making (a shorter version appeared in 2008 as "Fields of Fuel") the film is not so much a green documentary as a red, white, and blue alarm

Bloodline( Visual )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on the controversial "Bloodline" conspiracy that claims Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene actually married and had children, director Bruce Burgess' documentary cuts to the heart of the matter by speaking with two alleged members of the Priority of Scion - a secret society rumored to have closely guarded the bloodline of Christ thought the centuries. In 1982, Christians around the world were shocked by a best-seller titled Holy Blood, Holy Grail, and though it was that book that is often credited with promulgating the "Bloodline" theory, it was author Dan Brown's 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code that propelled the theory to the forefront of contemporary religious debate. Could it be that the church has been covering up this secret for thousands of years? Now, in order to find out if there is any element of truth to the "Bloodline" theory, Burgess and his crew explore a wooden chest that may contain the greatest secret in the history of Christianity, discover a collection of handwritten letters penned by a late19th century priest who openly repudiates official Christian Doctrine, and contacts two supposed representatives of the Priority of Scion in hopes of finding the evidence that will solve a mystery 2,000 years in the making
Popaganda : the art and crimes of Ron English( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A modern Robin Hood of Madison Avenue, culture-jamming artist Ron English paints, perverts, infiltrates, reinvents, and satirizes modern culture on canvas, in songs, and directly on hundreds of pirated billboards. The Culture Jamming movement is a form of political communication that has emerged in response to our commercially saturated environment, the "walled gardens" of consumerism that comprise both public and private space. English participates in this phenomenon by "liberating" commercial billboards, substituting inventive groupings of images to turn carefully created corporate icons upside down, or against the firms they represent. This film explores that aspect of English's art, and his exploitation of the symbology of consumer culture to critique that culture using Pop imagery and neo-Surrealist techniques
