A people uncounted : the untold story of the Roma( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in Multiple languages and English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journey into the world of the Roma - a people who through the ages have been both romanticized and vilified in popular culture, politics and art, and who have endured centuries of intolerance and persecution. Visiting 11 countries and interviewing dozens of Roma artists, historians, musicians and Holocaust survivors, this revealing film documents their culturally rich but often difficult lives, taking us back to ancient times and forward to the little-known story of Roma genocide at the hands of Nazis during World War II. As we watch the incredible story of the Roma unfold, both the people and their history come to life through the interplay of their evocative music and poetry, interwoven with true stories told by the survivors of the camps. As intolerance is on the rise in European politics, this remarkable film reminds us that ethnic minorities all too often fall prey to racism and genocide

America the beautiful( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filmmaker Darryl Roberts goes on a two year journey to examine America's new obsession: physical perfection. In America the beautiful, we learn secrets, confessions, and strikingly harsh realities as Roberts unearths the origins and deadly risks of our nation's quest for physical perfection ... [and] see how these increasingly unattainable images contribute greatly to the rise in low self-esteem, body dismorphia, and eating disorders for young women and girls who also happen to be the beauty industry's largest consumers. Who actually benefits from this high-priced journey towards this ideal? Is corporate America's bottom line so important that it justifies a nation's psychosis? What are the true costs of our obsession with youth, beauty, and a slender physique? At the heart of America the beautiful is the story of Gerren Taylor, a teenager who went from being an innocent 12 year old girl to being one of America's next top supermodels. ... Her tumultuous quest acts as a mirror to the American psyche, and it becomes apparent how the same beauty that could jump-start her career could ultimately destroy her young life. ... Roberts dives deep into America's culture of fear, consumption, and idolatry for all things external; he seeks answers from celebrities, media, academia, as well as everyday Americans"--Synopsis
The kids menu( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Kids Menu' is a feature documentary from the team that brought you 'Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.' As filmmaker Joe Cross spent time traveling the world with his previous two films, he met thousands of people and one issue that came up again and again was what to do about the growing childhood obesity problem. In 'The Kids Menu,' Joe meets with experts, parents, teachers and kids, coming to the realization that childhood obesity isn't the real issue, but rather a symptom of a bigger problem: the lack of knowledge of what healthy foods are; lack of access to healthy and affordable options; and the influence of negative role models. All of this together seems to be a lot to overcome, but when empowered, kids often make the surprising choice of the healthier path. In this inspiring and hopeful documentary, we see amazing programs in action, inspiring individuals paving the way for change, but most of all--kids taking the lead in getting healthier options on their own menu"--

A veces hace falta una mentira para destapar la verdad. Para el grupo activista The Yes Men, un evento inequívocamente previsible como una convención empresarial puede resultar un espacio preciado en el que incursionar, usurpar o fraguar identidades, disfrazados o caracterizados, y exponer sus ideas sobre catástrofes o sobre responsabilidades no asumidas. Su proyecto político es el de una planificación de la toma por asalto de espacios enemigos, la intervención desaforada y lúcida como un modo de acción contra la rapacidad capitalista

Bowling for columbine( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Famoso documental que aborda la cuestión de la violencia en América. ¿Por qué 11.000 personas mueren cada año en Estados Unidos víctimas de las armas de fuego? Los "bustos parlantes" vociferan desde la pantalla de TV echándole la culpa ya a Satán ya a los videojuegos. Pero, ¿en qué se diferencia Estados Unidos de otros países? ¿Por qué Estados Unidos se ha convertido en responsable y víctima de tanta violencia? "Bowling for Columbine" no es una película sobre el control de la venta de armas, es una película sobre el miedo de 280 millones de norteamericanos que se sienten más seguros sabiendo que la tenencia de armas es un derecho consagrado por la Constitución. En este incisivo y tragicómico estudio de la violencia y su relación con las armas de fuego aparecen personalidades como Charlon Heston, George W. Bush o Marilyn Manson. Ganó numerosos premios en USA al mejor documental -entre los que destacan los prestigiosos National Board Of Review y el Chicago Film Critics Awards-, así como el premio a la mejor película extranjera -compitiendo con largometrajes- en los César de la Academia Francesa de Cine
