Essay on Iran's relationship to the Western world. One of the directors, Katia Forbert Petersen, was raised in Iran. Her father was a Danish engineer and her mother a Polish survivor from Stalin's Gulag camps. In the film, the life of this family is reflected in the history of Iran from the 30s onward, until oil began to tear the world apart and the Islamic Revolution erupted. Through the eyes of ordinary people we experience how any given person's fate can change from one day to the next, when politics and leaderships change. Through an understanding of its past, contemporary Iran is uncovered
Mission rape( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite increasingly refined war technology and a growing global spotlight on human rights, mass rape is often used as a tool of war in modern combat. 25,000 to 40,000 women were victims of systematic rape during the Balkan War from 1992 to 1995. Twenty years after this conflict, very few cases of war crimes of sexual violence have been investigated or prosecuted. For many victims, these rapes continue to cast a dark shadow in their lives, and speaking out remains taboo. Mission Rape shares the stories of a group of women that meets regularly in Sarajevo. They see legal action as the only hope to regain some of what's been taken from them, but the justice system often fails them. To date, only 61 men have been sentenced for rape committed during the war. This film explores the reality of this injustice, and demands attention to the lasting consequences of these unpunished war crimes
Mama Benz : an African market woman( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The colorful markets of Africa are often dominated by strong older women. They control price and determine who can buy their goods. These women rule the market and are treated with deference. Thanks to their business acumen, they have amassed a great deal of wealth. These women are affectionately referred to as Mama Benz. Because each one has as her trademark a chauffeured Mercedes Benz. This film focuses on one woman who presides over the cloth market in Lomé, Togo. he is lavishly dressed matron with a fully-staffed mansion who proudly travels the rutted dirt roads in her limousine. Everyday she takes her accustomed place in the stall, surrounded by gloriously colored textiles, and haggles with her customers. The other market women look up to her. Perhaps one day they too will attain her success and become a Mama Benz."--Back container cover
