The war by Ken Burns( Visual )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 2,814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Six years in the making, this epic 15 hour film focuses on the stories of citizens from four geographically distributed American towns -- Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota. These four communities stand in for -- and could represent -- any town in the United States that went through the war's four devastating years. Individuals from each community take the viewer through their own personal and quite often harrowing journey into war, painting vivid portraits of how the war dramatically altered their lives and those of their neighbors, as well as the country that helped to save for generations to come"--Container
The Dust Bowl by Ken Burns( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This film] chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, when a frenzied wheat boom on the Southern Plains, followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s, nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Menacing black blizzards killed farmers' crops and livestock, threatened the lives of their children, and forced thousands of desperate families to pack up and move somewhere else. Vivid interviews with more than two dozen survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs, and seldom-seen movie footage bring to life incredible stories of human suffering and equally incredible perseverance."--Container

The Roosevelts : an Intimate History( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profiles Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-part, 14 hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of these years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of the National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear

Slaughterhouse-five by George Roy Hill( Visual )

4 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Amerikaner, der als Kriegsgefangener die Bombardierung Dresdens miterlebt hat, flüchtet sich vor den quälenden Erinnerungen und vor den privaten wie politischen Katastrophen der Gegenwart in kitschige Science-Fiction-Phantasien. (Pressetext RTL2) "Schlachthof 5" gehört zu den wenigen Filmen, die die Themen Krieg und Gewalt auf eine künstlerisch überzeugende Weise behandeln. Regisseur Hill erzählt von einem Durchschnittsamerikaner, dessen Erinnerungen an den Zweiten Weltkrieg - Ardennen-Offensive, Zerstörung von Dresden - so überwältigt werden, daß er sich in seiner Gegenwart nicht mehr zurechtfindet und sich in den Traum von einem harmonischen Leben auf einem Phantasieplaneten flüchtet. Hills Film, der mehrere Zeitebenen virtuos miteinander verknüpft, liefert so ernste Anregungen zur Reflexion über die Auswirkungen von Gewalt. (WDR Pressetext)

Sensing a break in the case that has paralyzed the city of Boston, the police track down a black man, Roy Smith, who cleaned the victim's house that day and left a receipt with his name on the kitchen counter. Smith is hastily convicted of the Belmont murder, but the terror of the Strangler continues. On the day of the murder, Albert DeSalvo-- the man who would eventually confess in lurid detail to the Strangler's crimes-- is also in Belmont, working as a carpenter at the Jungers' home.
