"This program documents the ritual of female genital mutilation, also known as female circumcision, practiced among some African groups; explores its roots in myth; and discusses movements under way to ban the practice. Interviews with anti-circumcision activists, including medical personnel, describe the health ramifications, including hemorrhage, infection, and painful sex. Victims discuss both the physical and emotional pain of circumcision, and both males and females discuss why they support or reject circumcision as a valid cultural practice. Graphic scenes of an actual female circumcision are shown."--Container
Globalization : winners and losers( Visual )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How is business without borders really affecting the world? As Sabeer Bhatia, inventor of Hotmail; Narayan Murthy, founder of Infosys; and other industry leaders attest, globalization has raised the standard of living in developing economies through high-tech opportunities, foreign investment, and debt relief. However, Harvard's Jeffrey Sachs and other experts point out that the world market is being exploited through shortsightedness, including the aggressive deployment of genetically modified crops, environmental negligence, and the abuse of NAFTA. This program--produced in the aftermath of the WTO protests in Seattle--addresses the pros and cons of doing business in the global marketplace"--Container
Lobotomy : Propaganda in the Russian-Georgian War( Visual )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reportage has become an essential part of any war, but in the Russian-Georgian conflict it is propaganda that has dominated the press. In this wonderfully sardonic documentary, an artful collision of fact and fiction exposes Russia's ongoing abuse of the mass media. A fiercely intimate narrative presence provides a very personal indictment of Russian propaganda tactics, laying bare the state's relationship with its people
Shackled women : abuses of a patriarchal world( Visual )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With dowries reaching fifty percent of a family's income, a second daughter is often called "the girl born for the burial pit. This program assesses second- and third-world abuses of women's rights by the male establishment-and examines how female collaboration sometimes contributes to their perpetuation. Feminist Taslima Nasreen; the author of Brides Are Not for Burning; and others speak out on topics such as dowry deaths, female circumcision, the Islamic zina law, the rigors of hijab, and child prostitution. But does the banding together of women against female infanticide in Tamil Nadu spell the beginning of a women's solidarity movement and a new world order?
Kashmir : valley of despair( Visual )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The valley of Kashmir is occupied by both India and Pakistan and acts as a buffer zone between these two nuclear powers. The Kashmiri people want an independent, autonomous state, which India refuses to grant. India fears that if Kashmir gains sovereignty, other ethnic minorities may also demand independence. The Kashmiri rebels, backed by Pakistan, and Indian government forces are waging a war of attrition that nobody appears to be winning and which could result in nuclear conflict. This program provides a history and a thorough analysis of the political, religious, and ethnic causes of the Kashmir conflict
Global exchange : free trade and protectionism( Visual )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program surveys the history and politics of cross-border trade, identifying ways that nations have tried to strengthen, reduce, or prevent it. Outlining the concept known as pattern of trade, the video examines cases for and against free trade while studying comparative advantage, wage inequality, economies of scale, and the infant industry argument. The evolution of international trade policy is also examined, featuring prominent examples of pro- and anti-protectionist measures: the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, GATT, NAFTA, the emergence of the World Trade Organization, and more. The success of East Asian economies following World War II highlights the principle of export-oriented industrialization
State of the Talib( Visual )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary traces the history of the Taliban from its rise to power in 1996 to its dominance over the Afghan population. Through interviews with Afghan civilians and refugees this program examines the ideology and objectives of this militant Islamic organization and the tactics they use that often violate human rights and are contrary to the beliefs of many who follow the Islamic religion
Globalization at a crossroads( Visual )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To some, the term 'globalization' means ruthless exploitation by corporations; to others, it means bringing economic development to all the peoples of the world. This program explains key principles at the core of global economics and takes a historical look at their effects, focusing on market liberalization and the failed 'East Asian miracle'; privatization of basic resources in Bolivia and the severe backlash against it; Russia's rapid transition to capitalism and the oligarchism and kleptocracy that came to characterize it; and China's incremental implementation of capitalism under communism. The video also takes stock of the seismic shift in the U.S. economy and its probable effect on the rest of the world."--Container

Gaza : the Killing Zone( Visual )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Israel's hard-line policy may be aimed only at Palestinian militants, but very often it's innocent civilians who end up literally caught in the cross fire. This documentary reports on the violence in the Occupied Territories, focusing on the plight of children who are constantly threatened by Israeli snipers, military rockets, and army bulldozers. The film also presents the stories of Rachel Corrie, an American student crushed by a bulldozer as she tried to protect Palestinian homes; photographer Tom Hurndall, who was shot while rescuing a child from gunfire; and cameraman James Miller, killed by Israeli fire despite being unarmed and carrying a white flag"--Container

Global capital market : risks and rewards( Visual )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program illustrates the flow of international capital, analyzes the risks it presents to banking and currency systems, and studies international political structures created to address those risks. The video presents the pros and cons of financial globalization, in the process explaining the concepts of inter-temporal trade, portfolio diversification, income inequality, and capital inflow and outflow. Recounting fiscal catastrophes that provoked international alarm-including the 1995 Mexican peso crisis and the 1997 implosion of Asian economies that impacted nations across the world-the program draws parallels between our current investment climate and the so-called First Age of Globalization in the late 19th century
Vivamazonia : the Jungle Book of Teaching( Visual )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and Portuguese and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the heart of the Amazon rainforest, a British couple runs a different kind of primary school. Each lesson relates to the pupils' remote jungle environment.

In mathematics they find fractions in rivers, and the fishing ban soon to expire on their beloved river becomes a subject for history. They learn not just facts and figures, but a responsibility for their natural heritage, and they come to understand the impact the end of the fishing ban will have on their families. This documentary focuses on the people who have the most to lose in our changing world

Using eyewitness accounts, maps, and footage both of historic events and of Serbian life, this program examines the ethnic nationalism and religious extremism that have resulted in the long-standing hatred between Serbs and Kosovar Albanians--a hatred that continued to destabilize the Balkans during the Milosevic regime."--Distributor's website
