Entre les murs The class ( visu )
4 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 1,212 libraries worldwide
Based on Bégaudeau's semi-autographical book Entre Les Murs (Between the Walls) "The Class" dramatizes a year in the life of a middle school in an immigrant heavy, multiracial neighborhood in Paris. The students are also nonprofessionals, and classroom sessions were improvised from workshops around specific themes. The documentary-approach to the filming puts the lie to the one-teacher-can-make-a-difference myth propagated by so many other films about school. The shifting classroom dynamics emphasize how traditions, economics, and language hold these students back, not only in education, but also with forging any kind of unified French identity. Additionally, the film suggests it is not just racists or reactionaries that are worrisome; it is when genuine idealists are finally worn down, when the gulf between meaning well and doing well becomes unbridgable. Until the system can be changed, both battles and victories will be moment to moment

El Djebena, Malik. #35-114T. How a does a timid boy become a violent gangster? Like this. Sentenced to six years in prison, 19-year-old Malik has his sneakers stolen right off his feet during his first venture into the exercise yard. Caught between the Corsican and Arab-Muslim factions, Malik--a bilingual, French-born Arab and non-observant Muslim--winds up being seen by the Corsicans as an Arab and by the Arabs as a Corsican. To survive, Malik works as an errand boy for the sinister Corsican crime boss who dominates the prison, César Luciani. Malik's intelligence comes to his aid--before long, he can speak to (or eavesdrop on) everyone in the prison. He does what he must to survive, including studying his boss carefully, warily making and then implementing his own plans. When Malik emerges from prison he is a man of the new Europe--albeit a criminal--a polite, industrious, and thoroughly self-made man

This film presents a compelling account of a reopened murder case, featuring a potentially innocent suspect and shocking tales of police corruption. Brenton Butler is the suspect, a 15 year old African-American accused of murdering 65 year-old Mary Ann Stephens on 1 May 2000 in Jacksonville, Florida. Condemned by everyone involved with the case, his only lifeline is his lawyer, Patrick McGuinness, who reopens the case and uncovers some shocking revelations, not to mention a clear lack of concrete evidence against Butler. Takes a candid look at the U.S. justice system at work and exposes the racial bias and abuse of power which resulted in Brenton's arrest. Features exclusive courtroom footage, as well as interviews with the youth's public defenders, including attorney Patrick McGuinness, who uncovered startling evidence that raised serious doubts about the police investigation and subsequent interrogation tactics
Être et avoir To be and to have ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 889 libraries worldwide
This film chronicles a year in the life of a one-room schoolhouse in rural France, presided over by Georges Lopez, a devoted teacher responsible for nurturing a dozen children ages 3-11. The film sees the teacher as artist, and presents teaching as a form of love. Because along with reading, writing, and arithmetic, the children learn about what we think of as the basic values of civilization: reason, tolerance, learning, cooperation, and comradeship. In one year, one dedicated teacher, sensitive to children's educational and emotional needs, exemplifies the importance of an abiding faith in children, and in education as a vocation

8 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in Persian and Chinese and held by 630 libraries worldwide
A group of men from the city traverse the rural Iranian countryside, looking for the village of Siah Dareh, following directions such as "turn left at the big tree on top of the hill," seemingly lost. The driver, respectfully called "Engineer" by the villagers, is in this remote location to record a funeral ritual that will follow the death of a woman reputed to be more than 100 years old. As he waits and she rallies, he becomes a figure of some amusement in the valley--whenever his cell phone beeps, he charges to higher ground in his Land Rover in order to get proper reception. And as he waits to complete his task, he is transformed from a nosy outsider into a reverent observer, seeing all the transient beauty and eternal wonder of the human experience in one poor, small, rural village
Ponette by Jacques Doillon( visu )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in French and held by 618 libraries worldwide
Ponette is a sad little girl. She has survived a car crash that killed her mother and left her with a broken arm. Her father takes her to live with an aunt, who has two children roughly her age, explaining to his tearful, disbelieving daughter that her mother is not coming back. Not understanding the finality of death in an adult way, Ponette wonders why if Jesus gets to rise from the dead, why can't her mother? Thrown into a new environment, however, Ponette begins to heal and grow up in spite of herself. While grappling with confusing religious issues, and trying to understand the meaning of life and death, the film delves into the magical world of a four-year old, where stuffed animals have extraordinary powers, dolls are more than inanimate objects, and God is someone you can talk to and expect an answer from
White material by Claire Denis( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 590 libraries worldwide
In an unidentified French-speaking West African country, chaos reigns as civil war erupts. For the rebels, it's time to banish the 'white material' -- white folk and the trappings of white life. Among these is the Vial coffee plantation inhabited by Maria, her ex-husband Andre, their son Manuel, and his grandfather Bernard, a white family of French origin. Their terrified workers have fled, leaving the crop un-harvested, the front gate unlocked. Andre plots his escape with his second wife Lucie and their son Jose. Maria has vowed never to leave, and is neurotically fixated on getting the neglected crop harvested. Maria does not seem to realize, or perhaps wish to see, how she is perceived. Her sense of home, of belonging, and her feeling of being rooted to the plantation--to Africa--will have tragic consequences
