Fuel by Asobo studio( Visual )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 882 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

Rebuilding hope by Jen Marlowe( Visual )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As small children, Gabriel Bol Deng, Koor Garang and Garang Mayuol fled their villages in South Sudan due to civil war. They became a part of a group of thousands of other boys with a similar story, nicknamed "The Lost Boys" upon resettlement in the USA in 2001. In May 2007, Gabriel Bol, Koor, and Garang, now in their twenties, embarked on a journey back to Sudan to discover whether their homes and families had survived, what the current situation is in South Sudan, and how they can help their community rebuild after devastating civil war. Along the way, the young men assessed the hopes, dreams and fears of the Southern Sudanese people nearly three years after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. They explored the connections between the conflict in South Sudan to the conflict in Darfur, probing the larger questions of identity and ethnicity in Sudan. Rebuilding Hope is a powerful record of Gabriel Bol, Koor and Garang's quest to find surviving family-members and rediscover and contribute to their homeland; it also sheds light on what the future holds for South Sudan in its precarious struggle for peace, development and stability. All proceeds from the film will go to support the health care and education projects initiated by the three young men the film features. Written and directed by Jen Marlowe
