Cathy is the perfect 50s housewife, living the perfect 50s life: healthy kids, successful husband, social prominence.

From the beginnings of his father's journey from Mexico to California in the 1920s, to his brother Chucho's tragic rebellion of the 1950s, to the stark realities of modern day, the struggle to live the American dream is sometimes darkened but never diminished for Paco Sanchez and his family
Mississippi masala by Mira Nair( Visual )
7 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A fresh perspective is brought to bear on race in the South by interweaving racial issues with those of economic and cultural dislocation and excluding the familiar overarching 'liberal' white perspective. At the centre of the film is the relationship between Mira, the non-conforming daughter of an Indian family settled in Mississippi, and Demetrius, a clean-cut black man. Mira's family had been political refugees from Idi Amin's Uganda nearly twenty years earlier. The tendency to stereotyping is offset by an outsider's eye for detail and landscape and the sense of loss brought to this material by Nair, who, as a East African-born Indian, has also experienced the loss of homeland

Is Ruppert a prophet with only a small audience for his self-published warnings or a crazy conspiracy theorist?

About Jenny Holzer ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Director Claudia Müller followed American conceptual artist Jenny Holzer (b. 1950) over a ten-year period, at work and in numerous exhibitions, gaining a unique perspective on her work. The film traces her career, from the young artist putting up posters in New York City in the late 1970s to the LED (light emitting diode) installations of today ... The works and projects of Jenny Holzer, who among other distinctions received a Lion d'or in Venice in 1990, can be found in all the world's major museums and have been acclaimed by critics and public alike ... Since reappropriating advertising text displays (originally created for propaganda) in the early 1980s, with their rapid blinking and flickering messages, she has developed a wide following.--

Bob Dylan, schillernde Ikone des Folk, Rock und Pop, tritt in I'M NOT THERE gleich sechsfach in Erscheinung. Als 11-jähriger Singer-Songwriter reist er Ende der 50er Jahre durchs Land wie einst die schwarzen Blues-Legenden. Mit 19 ist er ein scharfzüngiger Poet. Als Folk-Troubadour feiert er im pulsierenden Greenwich Village der frühen 60er grosse Erfolge. Kaum als Stimme einer neuen Generation gefeiert, erfindet er sich als Bandleader neu und stösst seine Fans mit elektrifiziertem Rock vor den Kopf. Er reüssiert als Schauspieler, scheitert als Familienvater, gerät als christlicher Prediger in Vergessenheit - und taucht wieder auf im Hinterland von Missouri: als in die Jahre gekommener Outlaw, der sich noch einmal auf die Reise macht
Ken Park by Larry Clark( Visual )
24 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ken Park focuses on several teenagers and their tormented home lives. Shawn seems to be the most conventional. Tate is brimming with psychotic rage; Claude is habitually harassed by his brutish father and coddled, rather uncomfortably, by his enormously pregnant mother. Peaches looks after her devoutly religious father, but yearns for freedom. They're all rather tight, or so they claim. But they spend precious little time together and none of them seems to know much about one another's family lives. This bizarre dichotomy underscores their alienation, the result of suburban ennui, a teenager's inherent sense of melodrama, and the disturbing nature of their home environments
