Tells the story of a migrant who found himself in the deadly stretch of the Sonora Desert known as "the corridor of death," and shows how one life becomes testimony to the tragic results of the U.S. war on immigration. As the real-life drama unfolds we see this John Doe, unidentifiable at his point of death, become a living and breathing human being with an important life story. Eventually, the authorities are able to identify the man as a 29 year-old Honduran, Dilcy Yohan Sandres-Martinez, who had a tattoo of his daughter's name on his chest. Gael García Bernal and Marc Silver then recreate the dangerous journey that Sandres-Martinez took in his attempt to enter the United States

The Possibilities Are Endless tells the incredible story of Edwyn Collins, the Scottish songwriter who suffered a stroke, an explosion in the brain so severe that it effectively deleted the contents of his mind. After a career as an internationally acclaimed lyricist, he lost all language and was only able to say two phrases: "The Possibilities are Endless" and "Grace Maxwell". The film is narrated by Edwyn, trapped inside his devastated mind and his wife Grace, the woman who pulled him back to life. More than just a story of determination against all odds; it is an intimate and life-affirming journey of rediscovery that celebrates how love, music and language shape our lives

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2009, Take That and Robbie Williams entered the recording studio to create and album that would mark one of the most eagerly anticipated reunions in British music history. Take That's success in the 1990s was as phenomenal as it was unsustainable. Now, 20 years after it all began, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams have turned to face that past and share their truth collectively, on their own terms. With unrestricted and highly privileged access to the recording studio throughout the 12 months that followed, Look Back, Don't Stare is a raw, intimate meditation on the process of friendship and forgiveness. A story of how a newfound personal honesty inspired the creation of a remarkable record, as an enduring document of a group of people inextricably bound by their pasts, in search of progress"--Container
