Working over several years in classic verite, Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan... travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades.

Occupy love( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough - the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life. The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world's key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks and Charles Eisenstein."--occupylove.org

"BLACKBIRD is a feature film about a troubled teen, Sean Randall, who is falsely accused of planning a Columbine shooting scenario. It all begins when an unlikely bond forms between Sean and a preppy teenage girl named Deanna Roy. Deanna's boyfriend is deeply threatened by Sean and Deanna's friendship, resulting in a violent confrontation. Seeking to protect himself, Sean issues a death threat online, and is swiftly arrested. When the police raid Sean's home, they find rifles, shotguns, knives and ammunition - all property of Sean's father Ricky, an avid hunter. They also find a supposed 'revenge plan' targeting over twenty people who have tormented Sean. The authorities and the media proclaim another Columbine situation has been narrowly averted, and soon Sean faces a terrifying imprisonment in a youth detention facility. Sean's only hope is to overcome his dark image, and prove his innocence to Deanna and to his community. BLACKBIRD is a film that explores the power, and the danger, of social media and cyber-bullying, while showing that the worst prisons are often the ones we create for ourselves."--McNabb Connolly website
Lost heroes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Canada Jack, Northstar, Alpha Flight, Nelvana and Captain Canuck - the most famous superheroes people have never heard of. Why? Because, they're Canadian. With a proud history that stretches back to the early forties and off and on since then, Canada's comic book superheroes and their creators have largely been forgotten today. Eclipsed by their better-known, better-funded and better-marketed American cousins, they deserve better than their obscure origins and fate would suggest. Written and drawn by Canadians for Canadians, these comic book heroes are an exciting but forgotten slice of Canada's pop culture. They're male and female, English and French-Canadian, Inuit and one of them (Northstar) was even the first openly gay superhero, but they've been lost and forgotten over the years. But now, they're ready to return to the spotlight ... Lost Heroes is the story of these forgotten Canadian comic book superheroes and their legendary creators
