Working at the Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Service (OVAHS) in Kununurra and dealing with upwards of 120 patients a day, Dr Mary is thrown into the deep end of the health crisis facing the Kimberley. And the OVAHS clinic is a long way from her sedate waiting room in the Scottish Islands. Against the backdrop of a resources bonanza, Dr Mary comes face to face with the health impacts on a community by-passed by the boom; including a homeless pensioner recently awarded the Order of Australia and the ticking time-bomb of heart disease for a grandmother trying to provide a home for young kids fleeing family feuds.--Kanopy

Exile by Gilad Atzmon( Visual )

7 editions published between 1931 and 2017 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exile portrays the filmmaker's own compelling journey behind the Iron Curtain to retrace her origins. Beautiful scenery and often haunting music accompanied her sojourn from Czechoslovakia into Prague and Austria where the film captures what it meant to be Jewish and survive during those dark Hitler years. - Josh Baran
Returning fire : interventions in video game culture( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 407 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
Bright Lights, Brilliant Minds - A Tale of Three Cities - Vienna 1908( Visual )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr James Fox tells the story of Paris in 1928. It was a city that attracted people dreaming of a better world after World War I. This was the year when the surrealists Magritte, Dali and Bunuel brought their bizarre new vision to the people, and when emigre writers and musicians such as Ernest Hemingway and George Gershwin came looking for inspiration. Paris in 1928 was where black musicians and dancers like Josephine Baker found adulation, where Cole Porter took time off from partying to write Let's Do It, and where radical architect Le Corbusier planned a modernist utopia that involved pulling down much of Paris itself

Harvest by Neil Young( Visual )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot entirely in Sonoma County, the feature-length documentary "Harvest" reveals the blood, sweat and tears that go into every bottle of wine ... There is no swirling, no sniffing, no sipping or quaffing. This is all about back-breaking manual labor and night picks at 2 a.m. with only tiny headlamps ... Over the course of three months during Harvest 2011, the film follows five family wineries: Robledo, Rafanelli, Foppiano, Harvest Moon and Robert Hunter, along with an amateur home winemaker and an extremely rare all-female picking crew made up of women from Michoacan and Oaxaca, Mexico ... Not interested in massive corporate wineries, director John Beck instead casts his intimate DSLR lens on salt-of-the-earth, tight-knit family farmers and field workers who are the backbone of the wine industry, revealing a glimpse of the American grape harvest that has never before been captured on film ... Along the way, we meet Reynaldo Robledo, the first migrant worker to own his own winery. There's Wayne Rogers, who loses 80 percent of his zinfandel crop to wild pigs. In his early 70s, Rudy Rodriquez has devoted more than half his life to Robert Hunter Winery. The women pickers share their border-crossing stories, showing how much they sacrificed just to get to Sonoma County, much less do a job that most Americans would never consider ... The narrative builds to a third act of untimely rainstorms and widespread grape rot - what everyone in the film will later agree is the worst harvest in their lifetimes. This is the story behind the wine you drink

"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
Global economics and oil : Jeff Rubin( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in Undetermined and English and held by 350 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
Tough Guise 2 : Violence, Manhood & American Culture( Visual )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 346 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."--Website
American autumn : an OccuDoc( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this gripping first-hand account of the Occupy Wall Street movement, filmmaker and former high school teacher Dennis Trainor Jr. takes an inside look at how a New York-based protest against corporate greed and economic inequality in the autumn of 2011 sparked a full-scale street revolution that continues to send shock waves through the American political system. Trainor weaves commentary from organizers, activists, and leading progressive thinkers with riveting street-level dispatches from New York's Zuccotti Park, Washington DC, and beyond. The result is a passionate and clear-eyed look at a movement founded on the core belief that the American political and economic system should "place human need above corporate greed" and do something about growing inequality

Alberta Tarsands : Andrew Nikiforuk( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in Undetermined and English and held by 318 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
The Boy From Geita( Visual )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zero zero"– translated literally as "nothing"– is what a boy like Adam is called in Tanzania because of his albino complexion. Adam’s pale skin makes him vulnerable not only to the sun’s rays, but to the most violent and hateful crimes imaginable. This largescale problem is made worse by local witch doctors that propagate the belief that the body parts of albino children bring good fortune. Ostracized from society and constantly fearing for his life, Adam finds an unlikely kindred spirit in Peter Ash, a Canadian businessman who also has albinism. Together they embark on a journey that transcends cultures and continents in hopes of raising awareness for their shared condition
