This training title demonstrates Mental Disorder/Illness Symptom: Ideas of Reference. "Ideas of reference" is an extreme form of the normal phenomenon of "self reference." In self-reference people refer to themselves in the first person. Ideas of reference, however, is a pathologically delusional phenomenon in which people experience innocuous events as being enormously significant to their personal lives. (Example: A person may believe that an advertisement on TV was designed as an exclusive personal message. A person may believe that a comment of the President of the United States meant the comment only for that one viewer, when the context of the President's speech is far from that.) This phenomenon is sometimes observed in schizophrenia, mania, and delusional disorders

Variants' is part of a series of films from DEFA Film Library. By the time the DEFA Studio for Animation Film closed in 1992, it had produced more than 800 shorts in a wide variety of styles and techniques. The 16 animation films included in this collection were directed by 8 different animators between 1974 and 1990, and give a taste of animation production in East Germany. Established in 1955, the studio initially produced shorts exclusively for children. During the 1970s and '80s, however, films targeting older audiences became more common. The animation films presented on this DVD contain elements of social and political satire that would never have been allowed in live-action films.

Taken to its bare bones, the story deals with Sisif, a locomotive engineer who saves Norma, an infant girl, from a train wreck and raises her as his adopted daughter. Norma thinks Sisif's son Elie is her brother, and when the two fall in love, she leaves to marry a virtual stranger. Sisif is also obsessed with her and the plot elaborates this triangular relationship ... German director G.W. Pabst, an ardent admirer of La Roue, was encouraged by Gance's example to undertake his own remarkable explorations of human psychology in such silent films as Secrets of a Soul, Pandora's Box and Diary of a Lost Girl. Yet La Roue is even more remarkable for its cinematic accomplishment than for its story. The film was shot almost entirely on location. Sets were built along the railroad tracks in the yard at St. Roch, near Nice, and at an elevation of 13,000 feet on Mount Blanc. Gance pioneered a dazzlingly innovative style of rapid montage that revolutionized filmmaking around the world, especially in the works of Eisenstein and his contemporaries in the Soviet Union. Almost every sequence was experimental: as his cinematographer, L-H Burel recalled, "I'd never come to the end of it if I were to list all the tests we did, all the special effects I invented, and all the innovations we launched.".. Like Intolerance and Citizen Kane, La Roue became a source book of cinematic invention that reverberated in countless other classic films over the decades. It was hailed by artists and intellectuals, who recognized it as a stunning advance in modern art. Said Akira Kurosawa, "The first film that really impressed me was La Roue."This new restoration with a running time of nearly four and a half hours, accompanied by Robert Israel's symphonic score, is the fullest presentation of La Roue to reach the public since 1923. It at last allows audiences today to experience the amazing, poetic vision that Abel Gance brought to the world

Dr James Fox tells the story of New York in 1951, where the world we know today was born. This was the year when Jackson Pollock brought a new dynamism to American painting, when the dazzling jazz style known as bebop hit its stride and when Jack Kerouac defined the Beat Generation with his book On the Road. It was where a young Marlon Brando took cinema by storm, a dapper Brit named David Ogilvy reinvented advertising and modern television arrived with the triumphant debut of a show called I Love Lucy

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

5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 424 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

It's amazing how many people who live surrounded by ocean, just a few feet above sea level, never learn to swim. In May 2014 National Geographic 'ocean hero' Jon Bowermaster organized a learn-to-swim camp in the Maldives to teach 50 3rd graders and 20 of their burka-clad mothers how to swim. In a place more threatened by global climate change and rising sea levels than almost anywhere on the planet, it is particularly important that its residents understand what's at risk. Diving into the ocean is a big first step in that we only protect what we know ... Also featured, former President Mohammed Nasheed, the so-called "Island President, "known for his international work on behalf of protecing island nations from rising sea levels. Just after this filming he was arrested in his own country, charged with "terrorism, "and sentenced to 13 years in prison

How children learn by Frances W Davidson( Visual )

Using animation and jargon-free narration, this charming film summarizes what is currently known about learning from brain research, cognitive development research and contemporary educational practice. Designed to be used as an introduction to discussion of school and teaching practices, this film also serves as an introduction to the study of learning in introductory education and psychology classes. Animation depicts the firing of synapses, the growth of dendrites and the concept of the brain plasticity, making the point that learning is as basic a human activity as breathing or eating. Factors that lead to school success are presented in a model that reflects the work of Erik Erikson, Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky without mentioning them by name. This video can thus serve as a starting point for a range of audiences interested in educational matters but leery of jargon-filled expositions

Newsreel 1958/95/32: Politics of a Front City (Agitation Patrol), with Actor Horst Kube' is part of a series of films from DEFA Film Library. A socialist story of "atoms for peace" and compulsory labor in an East German uranium mine under Soviet control. Banned at Soviet insistence, it impresses even today with its political complexity, variety of characters and realistic portrayal of daily work in a forbidden zone of the industrial landscape. Sun Seekers was banned in 1958 at the urging of the USSR, in part because it is about Soviet-German relations and the mining of uranium to support the nuclear arms race in East Germany's Wismut region. Encouraged by the "thaw" promised by the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party, in this film Konrad Wolf presents a highly dramatic and differentiated view of the Nazi past, Stalinist political practices and the energetic chaos of the early postwar period. The film's style combines Wolf's Russian sensibilities with echoes of Italian neo-realism and Pabst's Kameradschaft (1931). Releasing this banned film became one of Wolf's first priorities when a new regime took over in the GDR in 1972. In 1989, the film was revived again along with other banned films, as part of DEFA's best - if thwarted - tradition
