One of the cornerstones of Canadian culture, the National Film Board has throughout its history mirrored the social issues that preoccupy Canadians. Gary Evans traces the de- velopment of the postwar NFB, picking up the story where he left it at the end of his earlier work, John Grierson and the National Film Board: The Politics of Wartime Propaganda. Evans points out that although Ottawa has not meddled in the operation of the NFB, outside stimuli have regularly forced the Film Board to reassess its mandate, a process which often has brought about as much confusion as light. For example, the unbridled optimism and expansion of the fifties and sixties led to English Production's desire for 'democratization' of programming, an end to the power of executive producers, and an expansion of the Film Board's core of permanent employees, all of which nearly caused the organization to founder. On the French side, despite the filmmakers' preference for the feature film rather than the cinema verite documentary, many in Ottawa regarded their 'political' films as both unfair attacks on the federal system and anachronisms coming from a federal institution. Throughout, the English-French tug of war so integral to the Canadian identity is a recurring theme. Sources include interviews with former ministers, government film commissioners, policy-makers, and filmmakers, as well as archival documents and films. From them Evans has produced the first study to document the key trends in postwar Canadian filmmaking and to examine the role of film in the evolution of federal cultural policy

Moved and seconded : town meeting in New Hampshire : the present, the past, and the future by Rebecca Rule( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book you'll find the rituals, traditions, and history of town meeting in New England, particularly in New Hampshire. You'll meet the characters who keep the drama cracking, from silent knitters to rabble-rousers, from deep-rooted hoary historians to transplants, from across-the-board-cutters to homespun philosophers. You'll dip into the literature--poems, novels, short stories, essays--some by famous writers and some by writers who may be new to you. You'll sample the legendary dry humor as well as the down-home wisdom, which inspires well beyond the walls of the Olde Meeting House. Moved and Seconded is a colorful portrait of a unique institution with a storied past and an uncertain future."--Back cover
