Raccoon nation( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With their agile little hands, raccoons have become the urban bandits we love and hate. In the past 70 years, their population has exploded in North American cities, and interaction with humans is making them smarter -- maybe even pushing them down a new evolutionary path. Using high-definition, infrared cameras that turn pitch dark into daylight, The Nature of Things achieves something that has never been done before: it intimately follows a family of urban raccoons over the course of six months. Under the watchful eye of their mother, the young grow, develop and learn to navigate the raccoon capital of the world, Toronto."--Container

Where am I?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where Am I? is a new documentary about the skills we use to find our way around. Whether you are an Inuit hunter, a foraging insect, or just someone out for a stroll, your brain is performing one of its most fundamental services -- it's navigating. Why are some of us good at finding our way, while others are not? Good navigators are able to use both memory and imagination, remembering where they have been, and imagining where they're going. Some researchers believe we build a cognitive or mental map when we navigate, a kind of bird's eye view of our surroundings, a view that can be rotated and examined in our mind. There has been about sixty years of argument amongst scientists about whether humans and other mammals actually form these cognitive maps or not. The advent of GPS or Global Positioning Systems has changed the discussion about navigation. GPS triggers a simpler, more automatic navigational technique that does not involve building a mental map. With GPS, we simply respond to directions and may not truly understand where we are
Occupy love( Visual )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, "How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?" Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough - the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life. The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond. Woven throughout the action-oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world's key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks and Charles Eisenstein. Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper's signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience that will leave audiences inspired
