8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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.

In the early months of 1969, six men met on a swift boat on the Mekong Delta during some of the worst fighting of the Vietnam War. Five of the men were crewmates - Tommy, Mike, Gene, David, Del - and the came from across America, from Boston to Northern California to Iowa. Their commander happened to be a young Yale graduate named John Kerry. The six men would endure the horrors of Vietnam together. They would remain friends for the next 35 years. Brothers in Arms tells the story of their unique relationship. The documentary focuses on their experiences in Vietnam, but it also recounts what happened to them after the war and delves into the way each man has dealt with the experience of fighting in, as David puts it, "a war I discovered we didn't intend to win." Interviews, photographs and archival footage of the war are woven together to create a powerful and emotional film
Arguing the World( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing the World is the story of four brilliant and engaging men caught up in the central struggles of our time. This enthralling film creates a vivid picture of intellectual life in the 20th century. For more than half a century, Irving Howe, Daniel Bell, Nathan Glazer and Irving Kristol have all passionately believed that ideas can change the world-especially their ideas. And they have been fighting over those ideas ever since they entered New York's City College as young radicals in the 1930's. Arguing the World traces their youth in New York's immigrant neighborhoods, their idealistic college days, their controversial roles during the McCarthy era, their battle with the New Left in the 60's, and their vastly differing political views today
Among the Believers( Visual )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charismatic cleric Abdul Aziz Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban ally, is waging jihad against the Pakistani state. His dream is to impose a strict version of Shariah law throughout the country, as a model for the world. A flashpoint in Aziz's holy war took place in 2007, when the government leveled his flagship mosque to the ground, killing his mother, brother, only son and 150 students. With unprecedented access, Among the Believers follows Aziz on his very personal quest to create an Islamic utopia, during the bloodiest period in Pakistan's modern history. The film also follows the lives of two teenage students who have attended madrassahs (Islamic seminaries) run by Aziz's Red Mosque network. Throughout the film, their paths diverge: Talha, 12, detaches from his moderate Muslim family and decides to become a jihadi preacher. Zarina, also 12, escapes her madrassah and joins a regular school. Over the next few years, Zarina's education is threatened by frequent Taliban attacks on schools like her own. Aziz's foil is nuclear physicist and leading educational activist Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy. He passionately opposes Aziz through his public appearances, lectures, and the media. Opposition against Aziz comes to a head in December, 2014, when Aziz insults a grieving nation by trying to justify the brutal massacre of 132 school children in Peshawar by the Taliban. The attack ignites a movement to end extremism in Pakistan's mosques and madrassahs. Led by Hoodbhoy and others, Pakistan's moderate majority focuses on Aziz and calls for his arrest

This is the story of The Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague, the site of layer upon layer of buried members of the once-vibrant Jewish community. Almost a million people from all over the world now visit the cemetery each year, and HOUSE OF LIFE chronicles its history, which is rich in lore, mysticism, tradition and philosophy. Tales of great rabbis and philanthropists and the story of the giant golem, created from clay to protect the Jewish people, are narrated by Claire Bloom. The 12,000 stones may be covering as many as 100,000 members of Prague's historic Jewish community. Under the German occupation in World War II, the cemetery was the only place where Jewish children were allowed to play. Later, under the communists, lovers met there for trysts. The cemetery -- and film -- serve as a powerful reminder of the indomitable spirit of a people compelled to honor their past and preserve the lessons of history

Alberta Tarsands : Andrew Nikiforuk( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in Undetermined and English and held by 320 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
Proteus( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the 19th century, the world beneath the sea played much the same role that outer space played for the 20th. Twenty years in the making and based on images of 19th century painters, photographers, and scientific illustrators, Proteus brings these undersea worlds to life in a wonderfully unique film. The central figure of Proteus is biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel. As a young man, Haeckel was torn between science and art, materialism and religion, inner and outer worlds. Through his discoveries beneath the sea, Haeckel reconciled these dualities, bringing them together in an almost mystical vision. His work profoundly influenced not only biology but Art Nouveau and Surrealism, Sigmund Freud and D.H. Lawrence, Vladimir Lenin and Thomas Edison. The key to Haeckel's vision was a tiny undersea organism called the radiolarian, one of the earliest forms of life. Haeckel discovered and painted four thousand species of these one-celled creatures. Around Haeckel's story, Proteus weaves a tapestry of biology and oceanography, poetry and myth. The legend of Faust and the journey of Coleridge's Ancient Mariner are part of the story, together with the laying of the transatlantic telegraphic cable and the epic voyage of HMS Challenger
