Paul, an actor preparing for "Uncle Vanya" on Broadway, is mired in ennui. At the suggestion of his agent, he visits a company to have his soul removed and placed in cold storage. Once Giamatti has shed his soul, he finds acting much easier; he's also, suddenly, lousy, and his colleagues and loved ones are understandably perplexed. So he returns, demanding his old soul back, but there are complications: it's in St. Petersburg. Stolen by soul smugglers, it's been sold on the black market to a vapid Russian soap star. Suddenly thrust into the middle of a twisted black market of international soul trafficking, Paul journeys halfway around the world to reclaim what he'd so readily given away

This program surveys the history and politics of cross-border trade, identifying ways that nations have tried to strengthen, reduce, or prevent it.

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

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 407 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

As Pope John Paul II's right-hand man and most influential theological advisor, Cardinal became known as "God's Rottweiler." Now, the world knows him as Pope Benedict XVI.

In this intimate documentary, he provides a first-hand glimpse into life there. From the archives of the Inquisition to the catacombs and museums, he guides viewers around to numerous locations inaccessible to the public. Many have never been filmed before. It's a fascinating insight into the world of the Pope

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.

3 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charges against Christian missionaries for unlawful conversions and desecration of Hindu shrines are fodder for militant Hindu revivalists who seek to claim converts for themselves-and justification for their acts of violence against India's Christian minority.

Faceless : Inside a Psychiatric Ward( Visual )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Maria was found dancing on a line of train tracks, it's a good bet that confinement in a mental ward saved her life. Still, she says, she prefers freedom to the "freedumb" of the medicated world she now resides in. Many of her fellow patients are equally ambivalent about being institutionalized. One admits that his fear of being irradiated by electrical outlets may be due to the faulty wiring in his own mind. Another actually longs for more electrical shock treatments since they bring a sensation of "complete peace." And then there's the man who's discharged even though he's still hearing voices - they're not telling him to kill himself today, so what's the harm of reentering society? Following Maria through this claustrophobic landscape of uncertainty and anguish, viewers are allowed to explore the darkest catacombs of the psyche as well as the ever-present human tendency to search for a way out
Consumed : Identity and Anxiety in an Age of Plenty( Visual )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We've all kind of gone collectively psychotic, says evolutionary psychologist Dr. Geoffrey Miller, whose research deals with consumerism and marketing and their impact on traditional human interaction. Long-standing ways of socializing are not only vanishing, says Miller, but addictions, depression, and other mental health issues are becoming standard aspects of our lives - the direct results of our consumption-based society. This program looks at conclusions drawn by Miller and other thought leaders in response to dramatic cultural and socioeconomic shifts emerging in the 21st century. According to sustainable design expert Tim Cooper, the long-term individual and psychological cost of modern consumerism is relatively small. The environmental cost, on the other hand, could ultimately destroy life as we know it

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After introducing viewers to this compelling virtual world, You Only Live Twice grapples with overlapping in-world/real-world issues ranging from cybersex and the psychological repercussions of virtual sex crimes, to intellectual property rights fraud, to taxation on hard cash made on virtual cross-border sales, to the medical use of Second Life as a schizophrenia simulator. Insights and opinions are provided by SL creator Philip Rosedale; virtual property development millionaire Ailin Graef; Play Money author Julian Dibbell; Lauren Gelman, of Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society; New York University's Clay Shirky; Ted Castronova, author of Synthetic Worlds; and others
River Ways : A Dispute Over Fish in Idaho( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do you do when the fish disappear? That's the question haunting Idaho. It's become the center of a bitter debate. The solution - removing four dams on the Snake River - is as controversial as the problem. It could be the only way to save the fish, but it also has dire consequences for the 50,000 people who depend on the dams for their livelihood. On one side are the commercial fishermen who want the dams removed. On the other side the farmers say removing the dams will be the end of them. As this documentary points out, the solution will be a disaster for one side or the other
Growing Old( Visual )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people are unwilling to confront aging-even many seniors live in denial of it. Some fear losing their independence and autonomy, while others simply can't accept the graying of their hair. This program explores the varied landscape of aging in America, presenting the realities-physical, medical, emotional, and economic-of growing old in a youth-obsessed society. Whether they are well off in retirement, financially marginalized, in good health, or terminally ill, the film's participants provide moving and provocative commentary and raise several challenging questions. What exactly is the healthy way to grow old? Is age a disease to be battled or a beautiful stage of life to be embraced and celebrated? Perhaps most importantly, how can we reverse our society's neglect of the elderly?
