Life expectancies : monologues that challenge by Michael Kearns( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The average life expectancy is about 75 years. But there's another kind of life expectancy, one that describes how we each feel our life ought to go, ought to be lived. When conflict, obstacles, and tragedies shake our lives, these life expectancies are challenged, stretched to their limits - and sometimes they break. For Michael Kearns this friction between expectation and the unexpected is a wellspring for vivid, authentic drama about everyday and extraordinary people." "In Life Expectancies Kearns grapples with the difficult feelings that result when our expectations don't match our reality, and the resulting monologues challenge the audience and the performer to humanize topics and people who are often willfully ignored. Whether entering the shadow world of the homeless through a street person's thoughts, going far afield to see war's devastation through eyes that have experienced Iraq up close, or clinging to home in order to unknot a father-child relationship, the humor, humanity, and emotional honesty in Kearns' collection of outcasts and misfits prove they are not society's losers, but rather its graceful, artful survivors."--Jacket

"Nearly three quarters of the Iranian population is under the age of 30, and many are bursting with dissatisfaction. Evan Solomon goes inside Iran to explore an underground world where young people are rebelling in very typically Western ways -- punk bands, rap music, drugs, speed racing, defying gender roles -- but face much bigger consequences breaking rules under an authoritarian government. Theirs is not a political rebellion; it's a social revolution, one that's young, dangerous and hidden."--Distributor's website

Flora's Afghan Mission : Politician to Humanitarian( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Carole MacNeil went to Afghanistan in 2008, she and her team were eager to find the "real" Afghanistan -- the places not normally seen on the news, the people who are trying to make their lives work in the wake of decades of war and an American-led invasion. This feature documentary goes beyond the military perspective and explores the humanitarian work of Flora MacDonald. This former foreign affairs minister is helping to rebuild the war-torn nation through small-scale, highly practical rural initiatives, including school building, micro-hydro plants, reforestation efforts and local governance projects. One key component of all Flora's work is to encourage self-sufficiency for the Afghan people, an approach that gets high markes from other humanitarian workers and the Afghan people themselves
