The origins of AIDS ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An exploration of a theory of how AIDS was introduced to the human population. Illustrates the thesis presented in Edward Hooper's book The river : journey to the source of HIV and AIDS, and expands on it with new reporting. Many believe the answer lies in the research undertaken by scientist Hilary Koprowski, who between 1957 and 1960, injected his experimental polio vaccine into almost one million people in the former Belgian Congo. The film interviews scientists and journalists, as well as Africans who worked in the labs where the alleged vaccines were made, and also documents the ongoing battle between journalists and scientists in proving the theory's viability
Hunt for justice ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the 1990s, when age-old ethnic hatred gave rise to genocide in the Balkans, the powers that be seemed determined to turn a blind eye to these atrocities - until Canadian judge Louise Arbour was named Chief Prosecutor of the International War Crimes Tribunal. Arbour investigated rape camps, witnessed the aftermath of "ethnic cleansing" and saw first hand the displacement of two million citizens. With the help of her legal team and her translator, Arbour thwarted bureaucracy, issued secret indictments and sidestepped NATO in a gripping 3-year struggle to arrest and convict the war criminals responsible for the carnage, including former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic."--Container

"In 1952, a Catholic bishop makes an exceptional visit to a prison to hear a dying inmate's confession. Once inside the chapel, the bishop is taken hostage by Simon, a childhood friend. With the aid of his fellow inmates, Simon's version of the events that took place forty years earlier are reenacted. The action moves seamlessly through time between the crude prison and the actual events of 1912. The drama culminates on the tragic night when both men's fates were decided."--Slipcase for container

The Rocket's red glare ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The British war with Napoleon has been won, and 10,000 of Britain's best soldiers are sailing for North America. A British army invades the United States heading straight for the Capitol. The Secretary of War bungles the defense of Washington, leaving the British free to torch the Capitol building and the White House. The United States recovers and fights a brilliant defense of the strategic port of Baltimore; an event that gives birth to the Star-Spangled Banner. After the British are defeated in what should have been a sure victory at Lake Champlain and Plattsburgh, it becomes obvious that both sides are weary of war. With Britain eager for a truce and the United States almost bankrupt the two countries sign the Treaty of Ghent in 1814. Their treaty ends all hope of a First Nationals territory; however, the news of peace does not arrive in time to stop the catastrophic battle at New Orleans

So awful a night ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Antiwar sentiment in the United States had been strong since 1812, especially in the New England states, dependent on trade with Britain and Canada, now forbidden. By 1814, New England was threatening to secede. 1813 brought the American forces no victories, but in 1814, the tide seemed to turn. At the battle of Chippewa, American forces fought like regulars, and the British broke and fled. At Lundy's Lane, however, both sides fought to a standstill, with great losses, and the Americans withdrew again

Les origines du sida les scientifiques auraient-ils créé le sida par inadvertance? ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in French and English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ce film est lʼhistoire dʼune quête pour trouver la vérité. Plus de 20 ans après le début de lʼépidémie du SIDA, le mystère plane toujours sur son origine. Il semble certain que le SIDA est né du contact entre lʼespèce humaine et les chimpanzés, porteurs dʼun virus parent du VIH, le VIS (virus de l'immunodéficience simien). Mais où, quand et comment ce contact ravageur a-t-il eu lieu? Plusieurs croient que les recherches du scientifique Hilary Koprowski pour trouver un vaccin contre la polio seraient la réponse. Entre 1957 et 1960, Koprowski a injecté son vaccin expérimental à près dʼun million dʼAfricains. Or, lʼutilisation de singes sʼavérait nécessaire pour fabriquer ce vaccin, et plusieurs preuves indiquent que Koprowski aurait, entre autres, eu recours à des chimpanzés. La communauté scientifique, pointée du doigt, est depuis déchirée. Ce film documentaire raconte une extraordinaire controverse. Parce quʼelle en appelle à sa responsabilité, la question des origines du SIDA a mis la communauté scientifique mondiale en ébullition."--Site Web de Galafilm

4 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"La statue de Black Hawk surplombe aujourd'hui la rivière Mississipi, près de sa terre natale, celle des nations sauk et fox dont il était le chef. Le combat de Black Hawk, un des six épisodes de la série Chefs amérindiens, nous ramène dans l'Illinois et le Wisconsin, terre ancestrale de la tribu des Sauks. Par la transmission orale, les descendants de Black Hawk, qui habitent maintenant Oklahoma, font connaître la vie du chef et son combat contre les Américains. Le chef Black Hawk, incarné par Raoul Trujillo, explique pourquoi il s'est joint à une alliance panamérindienne alliée des Britanniques pour lutter contre les Américains lors de la Guerre de 1812. Alliance qui s'est soldée par un échec. La chute de Black Hawk, au printemps de 1832, a forcé la nation sauk à s'exiler et a bien failli entraîner sa décimation totale."--Site Web de l'ONF
