Why is a film on anti-gay bullying necessary?

"There is a camera in almost every American home today. Cameras and photography are an everyday part of our lives, something we rarely give a thought to accept when we need to buy film or get pictures developed. But the invention of still photography was monumental in the history of science and technology. For the first time, images could be transferred and saved. The role of still photography in world history and world culture is immeasurable. Because of this invention there exists images of the some of the eighteenth century and all of the twentieth century, television, motion pictures-the list is endless. Captured Light: The Invention of Still Photography takes a look at the invention and evolution of the art, science, and business of photography"--Historychannel.com webpage excerpt

Inside Pol Pot's secret prison( Visual )

Led by a former schoolteacher named Pol Pot, the Khmer Rouge regime killed between 15 and 40 percent of the Cambodian population in a brutal attempt to transform the nation into a classless society. At the heart of this orchestrated campaign of terror was a death camp known by the code name S-21. Thousands of prisoners entered S-21. Only seven escaped alive. Interviews with former guards, executioners and two survivors paint a picture of the unspeakable horrors that were commonplace at S-21. The incredibly detailed prison archives open a window into the Khmer Rouge's program of genocide, raising the question of why no one has been prosecuted so far for the crimes against humanity committed in Cambodia

"For 13 years, the Soviet Union conducted systematic examinations of UFO sightings within its borders. At the same time, the official government position was that such phenomena did not exist.

Drawing on commentary from some of the world's leading UFO analysts and formerly top-secret documents uncovered by journalist George Knapp, SOVIET UFO SECRETS REVEALED illuminates one of the most mysterious chapters in the history of UFO investigation.

"Tells the story of four accomplished American climbers who traveled to the former Soviet republic to tackle challenges like the 2,500-foot Big Wall. While on the face of the Wall, they were subjected to a threat they didn't expect--gunfire. What happened next was like something out of the pages of an adventure novel, as the climbers and a Kyrgyzstani soldier spend nearly a week on the run from members of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, evading helicopters, enduring firefights and surviving on river water and rationed powerbars. Their escape was only made possible by a daring gambit, one that might just as easily have proved fatal for all of them."--Publisher's website
