Sequences at the shelter include intake interviews, individual counseling sessions, anger management training, group therapy, staff meetings, conversations among clients and between clients and staff, and school activities, therapy and counseling for children at the shelter.. "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE examines the ambiguous nature of human bonds, the nightmare versions of romance and family love. 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 473 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

A fast-moving thriller about a struggle for democracy, William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar is also a love story between two men united by an explosive act of political violence.

With echos of the recent overthrow of dictators during the 'Arab Spring', the production explores the implications of political assassination and the unpredictability of its aftermath. Shot on location and also in the Royal Shakespeare's theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, Julius Caesar is a sumptuous film that features the original cast of a startling and arresting production. Actors include Paterson Joseph as Brutus, Jeffry Kissoon as Caesar, Cyril Nri as Cassius, and Ray Fearon as Mark Antony. 'Intelligent and deeply moving. Gregory Doran transports us exhilaratingly to a modern Africa' The Sunday Times 'This political drama is scorchingly reinvigorated in Gregory Doran's staging with a superb ensemble.

How children learn by Frances W Davidson( Visual )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 420 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

Behind The Screens( Visual )

5 editions published between 1916 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 409 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
Returning fire : interventions in video game culture( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 405 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 )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr James Fox tells the story of Vienna in 1908, a city of amazing creativity and dangerous tension. This was the year Gustav Klimt painted his masterpiece The Kiss, Sigmund Freud revealed the Oedipus complex, Egon Schiele produced startling pictures of humanity stripped to the bare essentials and both music and architecture took a bold step in a radical new direction. But it was also the year a struggling young artist named Adolf Hitler arrived in the city, a year that would put Vienna and Europe on the road to destruction
Mur by Ulrike Beimpold( Visual )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 391 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
