"April 1975. During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, as the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon, the South Vietnamese resistance crumbled. The United States had only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. With the lives of thousands of South Vietnamese hanging in the balance, those in control faced an impossible choice -- who would go and who would be left behind to face brutality, imprisonment or even death. At the risk of their careers and possible court-martials, a handful of individuals took matters into their own hands. Engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations, they waged a desperate effort to evacuate as many South Vietnamese as possible"--Container

The fence = (La Barda)( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2006, the U.S. government built the Southern U.S. Border Barrier, a fence that stretches only 700 miles of the 2000 plus miles comprising the U.S.-Mexican border to help contain the illegal immigration issue, at a cost of three years and three billion dollars. Kennedy investigates the impact of the fence and some of its unforeseen consequences. Through candid interviews with border guards, ranchers, environmentalists, she asked the question: Was it worth it?
The Dungeon masters( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evil drow-elf is displaced by Hurricane Katrina. A sanitation worker lures friends into a Sphere of Annihilation. A failed supervillian starts a cable access show involving ninjas, puppets, and a cooking segment. These are the characters, real and imagined, of Keven McAlester's new documentary film, The Dungeon masters. Against the backdrop of crumbling middle-class America, two men and one woman devote their lives to Dungeons and Dragons, the storied role-playing game, and its various descendants. As their baroque fantasies clash with real lives, the characters find it increasingly difficult to allay their fear, loneliness, and disappointment with the game's imaginary triumphs. Soon the true heroic act of each character's real life emerges, and the film follows each as he or she summons the courage to face it. Along the way, The Dungeon Masters reimagines the tropes of classic heroic cinema, creating an intimate portrait of minor struggles and triumphs writ large
