Last train home Gui tu lie che by Lixin Fan( visu )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in Chinese and held by 879 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."

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
The Coca-Cola Case by German Gutierrez( visu )

Dans certains pays, on ne s'embarrasse pas des syndicalistes. Depuis 2002, plus de 470 leaders ouvriers y ont été abattus par des milices paramilitaires à la solde de compagnies prêtes à tout pour empêcher leurs employés de se syndiquer. Au nombre de ces entreprises figurerait Coca-Cola. Un réquisitoire accablant contre l'empire Coca-Cola et un fascinant road movie judiciaire
Félix & Meira by Maxime Giroux( visu )
2 editions published in 2015 in Hebrew and French and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"Tout oppose Félix et Meira. Lui mène une vie sans responsabilité ni attache. Son seul souci, dilapider l'héritage familial. Elle est une jeune femme juive hassidique, mariée et mère d'un enfant, s'ennuyant dans sa communauté. Rien ne les destinait à se rencontrer, encore moins à tomber amoureux." (Source : jaquette)

Tipping point the age of the oil sands ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 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
The Frog Princes ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"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. There's the backstage politics, the forgotten lines, the missed cues, the romances and the rivalries. But for this troupe, the stakes are a bit higher: each cast member faces intellectual, developmental and mental health disabilities. Led by their charismatic mentor, the troupe learn how to hone[r] their talents and perform with their fellow cast-mates, all the while working through their personal struggles to mount an ambitious adaptation of The Frog and the Princess."--Back of container

Up the Yangtze by Yung Chang( visu )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Sur la rivière Yangzi, qui sera sous peu complètement transformée par la construction du barrage des Trois Gorges, vogue un luxueux bateau de croisière. À bord, Yu Shui, 16 ans, laînée dune famille de paysans pauvres et analphabètes, travaille à la plonge. À linstar de deux millions de Chinois, dont plusieurs victimes des exactions de fonctionnaires brutaux et corrompus, les parents de ladolescente devront quitter la rive, où ils habitent, avant la montée des eaux, qui engloutiront les rives. Tandis que Yu Shui se morfond dans la cuisine du bateau, larrogant Chen Bo Yu, fils unique dune famille de la classe moyenne, profite des largesses de la clientèle, essentiellement composée de touristes occidentaux. Le film du Sino-Canadien Yung Chang pose un regard à la fois fascinant et désolant sur les conséquences humaines, culturelles et écologiques de lérection du gigantesque barrage des Trois Gorges, devenu le symbole des ambitions de la nouvelle Chine. Aux témoignages déchirants de certains <<déplacés>> et à lillustration poignante de leurs déboires viennent se greffer des moments plus légers teintés dune réjouissante ironie. La réalisation, très assurée, emprunte souvent au cinéma-vérité. Ce parti pris, plutôt étonnant compte tenu du sujet, savère en définitive efficace et porteur. De plus, la composition de léquipe de réalisation, totalement chinoise, permet sans doute dapprocher au plus près les inquiétudes et les espoirs des << déplacés >>
