Secrets of the Choco ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Choco in Colombia is one of the largest relatively unspoiled rainforests on the planet. It still hides thousands of undiscovered plants and animals, and contains kingdoms of ancient forests and shorelines that have never been disturbed. But large scale development plans and the impending completion of the Pan American Highway threaten the future of the Choco and the lives of the blacks and Indians who live along the banks of its maze of rivers

Qallunaaliaqpallianiq heading south ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Filmed primarily in Nunavut and in three large Canadian cities - Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto, Qallunaaliaqpallianiq-Heading South explores the stories of Inuit “migrants” to the South: their dreams, their accomplishments, their preoccupations, the paths they follow and their interactions with the outside world? This documentary offers a different point of view from the stereotypical representations of the Inuit - addiction, alcoholism, vagrancy - that we're presented with on a daily basis. These are the representations that the Inuit are trying to overcome, while steadfastly refusing to be depicted as victims. An example seen in the film takes place in the Montreal suburb of Villeray, where part of the population, including the Mayor, showed their opposition to a building being converted into a Health Centre for Inuit from the North seeking health care. Sensing that they were not welcome, and being a prideful people, they withdrew from the project. As Mary Simon, the National Leader of the Inuit of Canada says: “There's a new wind blowing over the Inuit”. A new generation, proud and determined, is seeing the light, resolutely turning to the future and all the challenges that that implies
Just another job ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is professional hockey from the inside, an experience of the game that only the aspiring player can know. The film is about Les Nordiques de Québec, the first truly French-Canadian professional hockey club. Coached at the start by superstar Maurice Richard, it is seen here playing its opening World Hockey Association game at the Québec Coliseum. Vividly real is the pre-game tension, the on-ice action, where hopes rest on a flying puck, and, for one player at least, a dream realized in the inner office where big contracts are signed
