Pink ribbons, the symbol of the breast cancer prevention movement, are everywhere: T-shirts, hats, yogurt cups, KFC buckets, car ads, NFL stadiums - the list goes on and on. They make people feel good, as if engaged in a successful battle against breast cancer. But who is really benefiting? More and more women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Wouldn't it be something if some of the very companies that profit from their pink marketing campaigns have actually contributed to the epidemic by selling known carcinogens?

The Passion of Augustine by Léa Pool( Visual )

This audience favorite is set in 1960s Quebec, where encroaching secular culture threatens a convent and boarding school that produces award-winning musicians. Mother Augustine (Céline Bonnier) puts all her energy into her students, no matter their socio-economic background. But the future of the convent is put in jeopardy when a public education system is introduced.. Complicating matters, her niece Alice (Lysandre Ménard) arrives and flaunts her individuality as an exotic teen and talented jazz pianist. Augustine is determined to tame Alice's wild spirit, while she also clashes with the Mother General (Marie Tifo), who is no fan of music. PASSION OF AUGUSTINE is a surprisingly tender film about the power of music, sisterhood, and strength of women organizing to fight for what they believe in.. Winner of 5 Jutra Awards, including Best Film and Best Actress. Winner of an Audience Award in the World Cinema Independent category at the Mill Valley Film Festival.. "... A good dose of inspirational uplift without ever seeming to reach for it in the obvious, expected ways." - Dennis Harvey, Variety

De filmer le désir : voyage à travers le cinéma des femmes = Filming desire : a journey through women's cinema by Marie Mandy( Visual )

3 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary explores the works of women film directors, specifically the differences explicit in women's point of view, and expression of desire as articulated in films by women. In interviews, women directors working today discuss how their depictions of sexuality and relationships reflect the basic differences between the sexes--as revealed by image, shot, and story. The filmmakers and their films encapsulate the debates about sexuality, representation and image, and the body (as subject of censorship; as the vehicle of desire and love; as the contested ground of cinematic production) that have raged since the first woman picked up a camera, determined to claim her identity and find her voice
