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

3 editions published in 2014 in Multiple languages and English and held by 330 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

The kids menu( Visual )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 150 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"--
