The Last Survivor( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Survivor is an award winning, feature-length documentary film that presents the stories of genocide Survivors and their struggle to make sense of tragedy by working to educate a new generation, inspire tolerance and spark a civic response to mass atrocity crimes. Following the lives of survivors of four different genocides and mass atrocities - The Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo. The Last Survivor presents a unique opportunity to learn from the lessons and mistakes of our past in order to have a lasting social impact on how we act collectively in the face of similar issues today. Having shot on location in five countries across four continents, the film focuses on the universality of the horror of genocide - combating the misguided notion that genocide is something that happens "over there." Rather, the film asks its audience to consider genocide as an evil that has occurred on nearly every single continent and one that affects all of us as human beings. In the end, The Last Survivor is above all else an intimate meditation on how one begins to pick up the pieces of a broken life after experiencing such tragedy.

WEB: Connecting is just the Beginning( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In remote villages in the Amazon Jungle and Andes Mountains, a group of children are about to gain access to computers and the internet for the first time. WEB documents their experience with the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program, and ponders both the benefits and complications that are arising from our increasing digital interconnectivity. Alongside the poignant and sometimes humorous local stories, WEB includes interviews with leading thinkers on the internet including Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley, Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales, and OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte. The students loved the documentary. I thought the film was very balanced and nuanced in presenting the impact of globalization in rural areas of Latin America. It lined up an impressive array of experts to weigh in on the topic, but the Peruvians featured in the film were unforgettable and contributed the ideas that I think will stay with the students. - Camilla Stevens, Department of Latino and Hispanic Carribean Studies, Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences WEB raises serious and intriguing questions about the benefits - and drawbacks - that technologically-based interconnectivity will bring to heretofore comparatively isolated tribal cultures. Recommended. - Video Librarian A fascinating global odyssey...WEB is both a paean to and critique of burgeoning global media, and extremely entertaining. - The Village Voice
