The fourth world war by Jacqueline Soohen ( Visual )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While American airwaves are crowded with talk of a new world war, the human face of war is rarely seen. This documentary weaves together the images and voices of the war on the ground - from the front lines of struggles in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Palestine, Korea, 'the North' from Seattle to Genova, and the 'War on Terror' in New York and Iraq. Spanning five continents, filming took over two years to document the story of how men and women are working to resist getting caught up in the current global conflict

The Jena 6 ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In a small town in Louisiana, six families are fighting for their sons' lives. Two nooses are left as a warning to black students trying to integrate their playground, fights break out across town, a white man pulls a shotgun on black students, someone burns down most of the school, the DA puts six black students on trial for attempted murder, and the quiet town of Jena becomes the site of the largest civil rights demonstration in the South since the 1960s. The Jena 6 is the story of hidden racial inequality and violence becoming visible. It is a powerful symbol for, and example of, how racial justice works in America where the lynching noose has been replaced by the DA's pen."--Distributor's website
