Kanehsatake 270 years of resistance by Alanis Obomsawin( Visual )

10 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and French and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On a hot July day in 1990, an historic confrontation propelled Native issues in Kanehsatake and the village of Oka, Québec, into the international spotlight and into the Canadian conscience. Director Alanis Obomsawin endured 78 nerve-wracking days and nights filming the armed stand-off between the Mohawks, the Québec police and the Canadian army. A powerful feature-documentary emerges that takes you right into the action of an age-old aboriginal struggle. The result is a portrait of the people behind the barricades, providing insight into the Mohawks' unyelding determination to protect their land."--Conteneur

Marilyn Waring on women and economics( Visual )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this film New Zealand politician and activist Marilyn Waring spends a day with local women her age in several developing countries. She witnesses the enormous, unrecorded, unacknowledged extent of women's work. Women remain more than 50 per cent of the world's population, yet hold no more than 10 per cent of the seats in national legislatures. In one government in three, there are no women in the highest decision making bodies. This video takes a hard look at the disparity between what women contribute to communities and how their work is valued
