Virtually all the people we see, male and female, insist that they love the ones they torment." – David Denby, The New Yorker. "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is ultimately the most compassionate of all the Wiseman films. We come out of it feeling that change is possible, even as the film circles back to where it started." – Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times

Tough Guise 2 : Violence, Manhood & American Culture( Visual )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed Tough Guise, pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and US political culture. Tough Guise 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men - and women - to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior."--Publisher website

How children learn by Frances W Davidson( Visual )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Infant competence assumes very subtle forms and emanates both from biological givens and early experience. To be a good teacher one must recognize these subtleties and be willing to speculate about the intentions of infants, to appreciate that their actions are reasonable strategies to reach their goals. This playlist contains 11 video clips that reveal how infants learn. These clips present a range of concepts infants work to understand and a range of supports and provocations designed for adults to use to help children learn. To see infants learning, we have to slow down and look closely. We have to watch the children's eyes, study what they do with left as well as right hands, note what causes them to laugh or frown, figure out why they abort an action in mid-flight to redirect it elsewhere. We need to think about their reasons, not just their behavior. In these multiple ways, we are able to actually witness learning in situ and come closer to understanding the full competence of children too young to tell us what they think

Returning fire : interventions in video game culture( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Video games like Modern Warfare, America's Army, Medal of Honor, and Battlefield are part of an exploding market of war games whose revenues now far outpace even the biggest Hollywood blockbusters. The sophistication of these games is undeniable, offering users a stunningly realistic experience of ground combat and a glimpse into the increasingly virtual world of long-distance, push-button warfare. Far less clear, though, is what these games are doing to users, our political culture, and our capacity to empathize with people directly affected by the actual trauma of war. For the culture-jamming activists featured in this film, these uncertainties were a call to action. In three separate vignettes, we see how Anne-Marie Schleiner, Wafaa Bilal, and Joseph Delappe moved dissent from the streets to our screens, infiltrating war games in an attempt to break the hypnotic spell of "militainment." Their work forces all of us -- gamers and non-gamers alike -- to think critically about what it means when the clinical tools of real-world killing become forms of consumer play
Exile by Imtiaz Dharker( Visual )

Behind The Screens( Visual )

5 editions published between 1916 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A son dissects his parents' marriage - they were film icons in 1960s Myanmar. It turns out the heartrending scenes they acted out on the silver screen are a pretty accurate reflection of their real lives. While the camera slides across the glamour photos from their heyday, the filmmaker looks on, entranced. He grapples with the incredible fame of his parents. Now that he is reconstructing their relationship, he sees the old film footage through different eyes - as if it might contain the answers he didn't get as a child, when his parents separated. . This merging of family history and film excerpts creates a magical mix of fact and fiction, or - as the son calls it - "the real and the celluloid wedding." The son's public revelation of how things went wrong is an emancipatory act, as divorce is still a big taboo in Myanmar. But the filmmaker doesn't publically jump onto the barricades. Rather, he keeps things personal, showing the pain caused by the divorce, both for him as a child and for his parents. He also shows how, 50 years ago, ambitions in Myanmar in the area of film were in line with Hollywood: the first film his parents appeared in together was called Sweet Sixteen. . Best Documentary Award at Wathann Film Fest2, Yangon, Myanmar, . Best ASEAN Documentary Award at Salaya International Documentary Film Festival, Bangkok, Thailand

Mur by Ulrike Beimpold( Visual )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A poetic and enigmatic documentary by painter and filmmaker Jurgen Bottcher, who relies on sight and sound to contemplate the Berlin Wall's historic and symbolic significance. Part of the seriesWENDE FLICKS: Last Films from East Germany. This unconventional documentary highlights the Berlin Wall, its last days and its highly anticipated destruction. Both seemingly banal and historical moments are captured and presented without verbal commentary. On the broken-down Wall, memorable motion-picture footage is projected - from Emperor Wilhelm's ride through the Brandenburg Gate, to the torch-lit procession of the Nazis, to footage of an East German soldier jumping over barbed wire as the Wall is being built and the fall of the Wall. The images are shown with a painter's sensitivity, shot against the acoustic backdrop of construction equipment, curious masses of people and a relentless media. This masterpiece reflects the soul of Berlin in that moment

Global economics and oil : Jeff Rubin( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in Undetermined and English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interview with Jeff Rubin, former chief strategist and chief economist at CIBC World Markets, a division of one of Canada's largest banks. Jeff Rubin has always been highly quotable, and frequently controversial, and he was one of the first analysts to predict, back in 2000, that the price of oil would go to 1 00. Within two years, it almost tripled. Jeff has sometimes been called a maverick economist, and he's the author of a recent book entitled, Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller. In it he writes that without affordable oil, the world will be forced to de-globalize and rediscover local, autonomous economies. His name has since persisted in headlines, and he is known as a dynamic and engaging speaker, always controversial and fresh-minded. Jeff believes the new world will be more local and less global, with a reinvigoration of local cultures and customs. As a prophet, he has a pretty good track record
Alberta Tarsands : Andrew Nikiforuk( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in Undetermined and English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interview with Andrew Nikiforuk, an award-winning Canadian author and environmental journalist who has earned an enviable reputation as being honest, stylish and provocative. He has written about a wide range of issues including melting glaciers, educational shams, peak oil, the destruction of the boreal forest and most recently, the tar sands in his award-winning book The Alberta Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent. The tar sands are by far Canada's largest energy project, its greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions, and arguably the project which has transformed what was once a respectable, responsible, middle-ranked power into an environmental rogue state dominated by petro dollars. In this Green Interview, Nikiforuk talks about the Alberta tar sands and their far-reaching implications
