Durakovo, le village desℓ fous Village of fools ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in Russian and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Durakovo. The ironically named Village of Fools. A secluded town 90 miles outside Moscow brews old ideals in hopes of a revitalized regime. Mikhail Fyodorovich, (aka Mikhail Morozov) rules this small community with concepts of God, Tsar and Fatherland. That happiness is only around God, the Tsar does God's bidding and the people work hard in life to achieve the will of the Tsar. Prayer, labor and the political notion in contrast of Western Democracy is of frequent discussion. Mikhail makes known his stance in politics frequently, with those in his charge or with politicians from the capitol: to rebuild Russia to its former glory, criticize their leaders of the last thirty years and denounce Western ideals. He preaches the hand of God, the foundation he is laying, the old ways he is restoring, will one day win out over the US and its politics. A mix of hard religion, firm politics and strict labor play out before the camera with little intervention or direction from the filmmaker

What can 21st-century medicine achieve in the face of such ominous data? This film examines the escalation of diabetes cases around the world and looks at examples of concrete progress against the illness. Viewers learn about the basic science behind diabetes; the factors of obesity and poor physical fitness; the roles played by infection and the immune system; the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes; and the use of stem cell research and islet cell transplants in treating and-perhaps one day-curing the disease."--Container
