The end of the line by Rupert Murray( Visual )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This film] charts the devastating ecological impact of overfishing by interweaving both local and global stories of sharply declining fish populations, including the imminent extinction of the bluefin tuna, and illuminates how our modern fishing capacities far outstrip the survival abilities of any ocean species. Scientists explain how this depletion has slipped under the public radar and outline the catastrophic future that awaits us -- an ocean without fish by 2048 -- if we do not adjust our fishing and consumption practices."--Container

The flaw : markets, money, mortgages, and the great American meltdown by David Sington( Visual )

Inspired by former U.S. Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan's acknowledgment that he'd found a flaw in his model of how the world worked, 'The Flaw' attempts to explain the underlying causes of the financial crisis in more depth than any documentary to date. The film tells the story of the credit bubble that caused the financial crash and presents an original and compelling account of the toxic combination of forces that nearly destroyed the world economy
Fire in the blood( Visual )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fire in the Blood tells the true story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs in Africa and the global south in the 1990s - leading to the preventable deaths of at least ten million people - and how a remarkable coalition of people came together to stop them. Shot on four continents and featuring contributions from global figures such as Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu, and Joseph Stiglitz, the film offers devastating insights into the lethal decision-making process that led to this humanitarian catastrophe. And it shows how, if not for the passion and tactical ingenuity of a group of courageous and relentless activists, millions of more people would have died. The result is a gripping look at corporate greed, government collusion, the cutthroat economics of medicine and healthcare, and the power of ordinary people to make meaningful change on a global scale."--Container
The war you don't see by John Pilger( Visual )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The War You Don't See traces the history of 'embedded' and independent reporting from the carnage of World War I to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan. As weapons and propaganda are ever more sophisticated, the very nature of war has developed into an 'electronic battlefield'"--Videodisc container label
Utopia( Visual )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utopia is an investigation into Australia's colonial past and wealthy present. It sets out to break the sterotypes of the first people of Australia. John Pilger travels to Darwin, then to Western Australia and the the outback of New South Wales, where he explores the high rate of Indigenous people imprisoned, the low average life expectancy and the prevalence of preventable disease and malnutrition among Indigenous communities. Utopia is both a personal journey and a universal story of power and resistance, of how modern societies can be divided between those who conform and the dystopian world of those who do not-Summary adapted from SBS-TV website
The divide( Visual )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1980s the governments of both the United States and Great Britain adopted policies of cutting taxes, limiting public welfare spending, deregulating industries, and suppressing labor unions. This documentary takes a deeply personal look at wealth inequality, telling the story of seven individuals striving for a better life in the modern day U.S. and U.K. Weaving these stories and others with stunning footage and commentary from experts like Noam Chomsky, The Divide shows how virtually every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor. The film is inspired by the critically acclaimed, best-selling book The Spirit Level by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett
Utopia : an epic story of struggle and resistance( Visual )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utopia is an epic production by the Emmy and Bafta winning film-maker and journalist John Pilger. Utopia is a vast region in northern Australia and home to the oldest human presence on earth. 'This film is a journey into that secret country, ' says John Pilger in Utopia. 'It will describe not only the uniqueness of the first Australians, but their trail of tears and betrayal and resistance - from one utopia to another'. Pilger begins his journey in Sydney, where he grew up, and in Canberra, the nation's capital, where the national parliament rises in an affluent suburb called Barton, recently awarded the title of Australia's most advantaged community. Barton is named after Edmund Barton, the first prime minister of Australia, who in 1901 introduced the White Australia Policy. 'The doctrine of the equality of man, ' said Barton, 'was never intended to apply to those who weren't British and white-skinned.' He made no mention of the original inhabitants who were deemed barely human, unworthy of recognition in the first suburban utopia. A global campaign illuminated apartheid in South Africa. No such opprobrium has been directed at Australia, where black Australians are imprisoned at up to eight times the rate of blacks in apartheid South Africa. Instead, Australia's post card image is that of the 'lucky country'; and indeed few societies are as wealthy, if you leave out the original inhabitants is that of a third world country. In the town of Wilcannia, New South Wales, the average life expectancy of men is 37. This is the secret of apartheid Australia. Utopia is both a personal journey and universal story of power and resistance and how modern societies can be divided between those who conform and a dystopian world of those who do not. Utopia draws on people and places Pilger filmed 28 years ago during his long association with the indigenous people of his homeland. The evidence he produces is often deeply moving and shocking

The end of the line( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think, and act. In this film, viewers see firsthand the effects of humanities global love affair with fish as food. It follows investigative reporter Charles Clover as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans. Scientists predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048, and the impact of overfishing extends beyond marine life. For consumers who innocently buy endangered fish, politicians who ignore the advice and pleas of scientists, fishermen who break quotas and fish illegally, and the global fishing industry that is precipitating disaster, this film is a wake-up call

"Cocaine Unwrapped tells the story of cocaine: coca farmers in Colombia, drug mules in Ecuadorian prisons, cocaine factories in the Bolivian jungle, dealers on the streets of Mexico, law enforcement officials on the streets of Baltimore - and the everyday consumers around the dinner tables of the West.

Front line reportage, exclusive access to the political leaders of Latin America, revealing interviews with drug czars - watch this and you will never think the same about cocaine and the war on drugs again."--Container

The divide : what happens when the rich get richer?( Visual )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Divide takes a deeply personal look at wealth inequality, telling the story of seven individuals striving for a better life in the modern day U.S. and U.K. -- where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%. There's Wall Street psychologist Alden, who wants to make it to the top 1%; KFC worker Leah from Virginia, who just wants to make it through the day; and Jen in Sacramento, California, who doesn't talk to her neighbors in her upscale gated community because they've made it clear she isn't "their kind." Weaving these stories and others with stunning footage and commentary from experts like Noam Chomsky, The Divide shows how virtually every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor. The film is inspired by the critically acclaimed, best-selling book The Spirit Level by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett
