Last train home = Gui tu lie che by Lixin Fan( visu )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in Chinese and held by 880 libraries worldwide
"Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as an astonishing 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year's holiday. This mass exodus is the largest human migration on the planet, an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Working over several years in classic verite, Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan ... travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades. Emotionally engaging and starkly beautiful, Last Train Home's intimate observation of one fractured family sheds light on the human cost of China's ascendance as an economic superpower."--Container
Félix et Meira ( visu )
4 editions published in 2015 in French and English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
"An unconventional love story between two people living vastly different lives. Meira, a young Hasidic wife and mother unhappy in her life, and Felix, a man lost in mourning the recent death of his father, unexpectedly meet in Montreal's Mile End district. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as the two find comfort and freedom in one another. As Felix opens Meira's eyes to the world outside of her Orthodox community, her desire for change becomes harder for her to ignore."--Container
Rip! : a remix manifesto by Brett Gaylor( visu )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 270 libraries worldwide
Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'
Nollywood Babylon by Ben Addelman( visu )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 145 libraries worldwide
Chronicles the wild world of "Nollywood," a term coined in the early '90s to describe the world's fastest-growing national cinema, the Nigerian film industry. The film delves first-hand into Nigeria's explosive homegrown movie industry, producing 2500 films a year, most for under $10,000. Peppered with interviews with producers, directors and actors, film clips and buoyed by a rousing score fusing Afropop and traditional sounds, Nollywood Babylon celebrates the distinctive power of Nigerian cinema now bursting beyond the borders of Africa

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
An examination of the prison and its place -- social, economic and psychological -- in American society. Excavates the often-unseen links and connections that prisons and our system of mass incarceration have on communities and industries all around us-- from a blazing California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires to a Bronx warehouse that specializes in prison-approved care packages to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of new prison jobs to the street where Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson. Includes interviews with ex-convicts, prisoners and people who live near prisons

Au nombre de ces entreprises figurerait Coca-Cola. Un réquisitoire accablant contre l'empire Coca-Cola et un fascinant road movie judiciaire

Tipping point : the age of the oil sands UPDATE ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"This is a 45-minute version of the documentary 'Tipping Point: The Age of the Oil Sands, ' which originally aired in January 2011 as a two-hour presentation. It includes an update on oil sands research as of 2013. In January 2013, a team of scientists, led by Dr. John Smol from Queen's University, released a study revealing evidence strongly suggesting the Alberta oil sands have been sending toxins into the air and water for decades. They confirmed the groundbreaking research of Dr. David Schindler, documented in the original version of Tipping Point: The Age of the Oil Sands which aired on The Nature of Things in January 2011. The new study shows toxins around the Athabasca oil sands have increased in areas at least 90km away. Levels of industry-related chemicals have nearly doubled since the 1960s, and have risen sharply since the 1990s."--Container

"A theatre troupe works tirelessly to put on a play. The challenges they face are typical of the dramas that unfold behind the scenes of any live show.
