Osama by Siddiq Barmak ( Visual )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This meticulous inquiry into the ways that ideological evil can infect, and ultimately destroy, the intimacies and small pleasures of daily life is beautiful, thoughtful, and almost unbearably sad. A widowed grandmother, mother, and daughter are facing starvation. Since the foreign doctors have been driven away, the mother's employment at the hospital ends. Thus the young daughter, at the risk of being discovered and killed, masquerades as a boy in order to earn money--a necessity since they cannot leave the house without a male escort. Snatched away from her job and sent to be indoctrinated by the Taliban, it is just a matter of time before she is given away. The Taliban's obscene wish for a world where the stringent enforcement of religious laws takes the place of human kindness is on full display, and as they employ their sadistic holy laws in the name of God, the only human response is horror
Hamlet by William Shakespeare ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Called "the greatest Hamlet of his generation" by Guardian reviewer Robert McCrum, Scottish actor David Tennant headlines this edgy film version of the acclaimed 2008 Royal Shakespeare Company stage production. Tennant is supported by a host of gifted players--including the impeccable Patrick Stewart as Claudius and Oliver Ford Davies in an astonishing performance as a doddering yet strangely leonine Polonius. Modern costumes, shrewd textual abridgements, and a recurring motif of high-tech video surveillance all connect the play to 21st-century anxieties, but these attributes in no way eclipse Tennant's forceful mixture of rage, sorrow, and manic humor

Volcano above the clouds ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At 20,000 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest peak and also the world's tallest volcano ... A trek up its steep flanks takes climbers through five different worlds of climate and vegetation, ranging from rainforest near the bottom to arctic ramparts of ice surrounding a rocky crater at the peak. Kilimanjaro is not only a nature-lover's paradise, but also a tantalizing mystery for many scientists. The glacier atop the mountain has shrunk by over a third in the last decade due to global warming, and could disappear altogether by 2015. And although classified as dormant, Kilimanjaro has begun to stir, and evidence suggests that a massive landslide could rip open the side of the mountain causing a cataclysmic flow of hot gases and rock, similar to Mount St. Helens. NOVA takes an unusual expedition to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro to investigate these two scientific mysteries."--Container
