The sky above, the mud below: Long before PBS, National Geographic, and the Discovery Channel made documentaries ubiquitous, films like this seminal if straightforward work were only available via local art house theaters. One of the earliest looks into native life on Papua New Guinea, this documentary follows a group of Europeans on a seven-month trek to bisect the island. During the perilous expedition (450 miles, as a crow flies) through jungle and across high altitudes, the group encounters tribes of headhunters and cannibals, observing and filming their rituals and ceremonies

Nevada Smith by Henry Hathaway ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nevada Smith is a rugged innocent boy born in the 1890's during California's gold rush days to an Indian mother and white father. When he finds his parents have been murdered by vicious killers, he sets out to track them down. While the film is a western, and has plenty of action, it is also a powerful and revealing study of the regeneration of a man, in this case a long gunslinger who is so blinded by this compulsion that it obscures any other motive for living. Steve McQueen's dynamic presence as Nevada Smith is memorable
