Hannah Arendt by Margarethe von Trotta( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 626 libraries worldwide
A biopic of Hannah Arendt, the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. "Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker -- controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils -- introduced her now-famous concept of the 'Banality of Evil.' Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, [director] von Trotta...turns the often-invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema." -- Container
Burma VJ reporting from a closed country ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 572 libraries worldwide
"Anders Østergaard's ... documentary ... is a rare and exceptional look into the 2007 uprising in Burma (Myanmar) where 100,000 people, including thousands of Buddhist monks, peacefully took to the streets to protest the country's repressive regime that has held them hostage for over forty years. During the uprising, the military turned their guns on the peaceful protestors, and blood spilled in the streets. Foreign news reporters were banned and the internet shut down. But Democratic Voice of Burma, a collective of thirty anonymous and underground citizen video journalists (VJs), heroically bore witness to the historic events and secretly videotaped what they saw. Through a dedicated network of supporters, they smuggled the footage out of the country, where it was broadcast via satellite to a world horrified by the violence against a people fighting for democracy. Risking torture and life imprisonment, the VJs vividly documented the brutal clashes with the military and undercover police -- even after they became targets of the authorities. Burma VJ represents their inspiring stories of courage and hope and the undying spirit of a people fighting for freedom."--Container

Darwin's nightmare by H Sauper( visu )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 445 libraries worldwide
The biggest tropical lake on earth, source of the river Nile, is Lake Victoria in western Tanzania. Deep in the heart of Africa--said to be the birthplace of humankind--is ground zero for the post-colonial exploitation of Africa by the developed world and the forces of globalization. Westerners introduced Nile perch into the lake in the 1960s. In the years since, it ate everything in sight, decimated 213 separate species, destroyed thousands of years of evolution, and turned the world's largest tropical lake into a barren sinkhole. This film examines the chilling chain of causality linking this catastrophe to the Tanzanian fish-processing industry, which relies on the wholesale netting, stripping, and shipping of these fish, while delivering few economic benefits to the Tanzanian people
