Wuxing people's commune by Boyce Richardson( Visual )
4 editions published between 1978 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recent changes in Chinese economy and society make this film an especially valuable portrayal of life and labor in the countryside in 1978. The 14,500 peasants on Wuxing People's Commune in North China produced enough food in that year to satisfy most of their needs on just 3,000 acres
Action the October crisis of 1970 ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A long and thoughtful look at those desperate days of October 1970, when Montréal awaited the outcome of FLQ terrorist acts. This film puts the October Crisis in the long perspective of history. Compiled from news and other films, it shows independence movements past and present, and their leaders; it reflects the mingled relief, dismay, defiance, when the Canadian army came to Montréal; and it shows how political leaders viewed the intervention. (Awards: Nyon; Chicago; Niagara-on-the Lake.)

A film about the people of Saigon told through the experiences of three young American journalists who, in 1970, explored the consequences of war and of the American presence in Vietnam. It is not a film about the Vietnam War, but about the people who lived on the fringe of battle. The views of the city are arresting, but away from the shrines and the open-air markets lies another city, swollen with refugees and war orphans, where every inch of habitable space is coveted

Arthur Lismer's contributions to Canadian art and art education were considerable. This founding member of the Group of Seven developed a powerful expressionist style, characterized by raw color, coarse brushwork, and simplified form. However, Lismer devoted much of his time to art education. At the Montreal Children's Art Centre, which he ran from 1941 to 1967, we see how children learn creative self-expression through art

A vivid recollection of the Klondike gold rush at its frenzied height. The film captures the agonizing months during which would-be prospectors struggled through steep passes and wintery trails to reach the fabled gold fields 2000 miles north of civilization. Other scenes show Dawson City in the days when the gold of its river beds flowed freely through its stores, taverns and dance halls

18-year-old Peter is a "problematic" youth who wants his independence and freedom, yet his quest for individuality isn't always in line with what his parents expect from him. His mother wants him to go to college and become a lawyer, while his father wants him to just sustain a middle-class lifestyle. Peter is involved with a girl named Julie whom he loves. They have a plan to save money and leave their hometown behind. In his desperation, Peter steals money and a car from the car lot where he works. Once Julie sees how Peter has turned their plan into a criminal act, she doesn't want any part of it. Furthermore, she is pregnant. The film ends with Peter leaving Julie on the side of the road, with neither of them waving goodbye.--Duana Fullwiley, 11-94

He compares his new life in the city of Winnipeg to the life he knew in Poland, marvelling at the freedom Canadians enjoy.

Blackwood ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Summary: David Blackwood is one of Canada's most prominent contemporary etchers. Born in the town of Wesleyville, Newfoundland, his subjects are frequently the experiences and memories of the inhabitants of this fishing port, recording a way of life that has now vanished. In this film he illustrates the entire etching process, from the initial design to the completed print, and the filmmakers have intercut these artistic details with scenes of the people and the community today. It presents a representative selection of his work, while on the soundtrack an old mariner recalls momentous and sometimes tragic events from the seafaring past. Awards: Academy Award nomination
North China factory ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1980 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Also seen are the workers' residential, social, recreational and educational facilities, all of which are located on factory property. Highlights of the film are the retirement and wedding ceremonies in which factory management plays a major part. The film is an engrossing study of a lifestyle that is very different from that of the Western world
