Waste land by Lucy Walker ( Visual )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Brooklyn based artist Vik Muniz grew up poor in Brazil. This film follows him as he returns to Rio de Janeiro, specifically to Jardim Gramacho, or "Garbage Garden." The world's largest landfill, it receives 7,000 tons daily, an astonishing 70% of all Rio's garbage. "We are not pickers of garbage; we are pickers of recyclable materials," says Tião, a catadore, or trash picker who thinks of himself and his fellows as environmentalists. The pickers have a union, which has built a recycling center, medical clinic, day care and skills-training centers, and community lending library of discarded books for their members. Muniz photographs a number of the pickers, reworks the photographs with garbage, and auctions several in London. Believing in the transformative power of art, Muniz donates the proceeds to the pickers who posed, in recognition of their lives, in honor of the dignity of their work
War zone by Maggie Hadleigh-West ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Setting out to make a film on the subject of "street abuse," in urban environments, Maggie Hadleigh-West hit upon the idea of toting around a handheld video camera and turning it on the men who whistle, jeer, and otherwise accost her. Hadleigh-West accosts right back, and very few of the men have the grace to look abashed, much less apologize. Indeed, the results vary widely: inarticulate jabbering, half-hearted explanations, and naked aggression, including and a few smacks at the lens. There are interviews with other women on their own street-abuse experiences, all of whom make their cases eloquently

Ginga a alma do futebol brasileiro ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in Portuguese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"[W]hat sets Brazil and its football apart from the rest? One of the answers is Ginga - an almost indefinable, mystical quality of movement and attitude possessed only by Brazilians and evident in everything they do. The way they walk, talk, dance and approach everything in their lives. . . .The concept of the film is rooted in the exploration of seven real-life characters, aged between the ages of 13 and 20, who come from different geographical regions and varying social and ethnic backgrounds. The film captures an intimate portrait of their lives and provokes the questions: Is playing football for Brazilians more than just a pastime? Is it a way to achieve status and success? Is it an emotional escape from the troubles of their lives? Is it a sort of civic duty, a rite of passage of being Brazilian? Or is it simply done for the love of the game?"--Soccer Training Info website
