My Land : Seeing Both Sides of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict by Nabil Ayouch( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 254 libraries worldwide
Born to a Moroccan Muslim father and a Tunisian Jewish mother, filmmaker Nabil Ayouch spent his childhood hearing divergent views about Israel and Palestine. Still wrestling with "a conflict that never left me," Ayouch created this poignant documentary about young Israelis, displaced Palestinians, and the threads of tragic history woven between two communities with deep ties to the same land. Ayouch entered Lebanese refugee camps to record personal testimonies from elderly Palestinians about memories of their birthplaces. Then he visited those homes in present-day Israel to learn about the attitudes of the young people currently living there. This process of gathering perspectives enabled Ayouch to set up the film's evocative virtual encounters, in which the Israeli subjects view and react to the Palestinian testimonies. The results are moving, frequently surprising, and apt to help those who struggle to comprehend the hardships of the region
Living and breathing : coping with LAM and other chronic illnesses ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 251 libraries worldwide
Faced with a life-threatening chronic ailment, it's natural for patients to grieve over lost health, lost joys, lost possibilities. But some people simply refuse to let illness define their lives. They fight back by taking a proactive approach to medical treatment, and, perhaps more importantly, by insisting that their career goals and personal lives remain top priorities. In this film, women of various backgrounds and nationalities learn to cope with lymphangioleiomyomatosis, or LAM--a rare and eventually fatal lung disease that typically afflicts female, childbearing-age patients. Trained as a social scientist, Amy Farber used her in-depth knowledge and connections in the American medical community to create a LAM-focused research organization. British author and philosophy lecturer Havi Carel continues to distinguish herself in academia. And Corine Durand of FLAM, a French group combating the disease, embraces a new outlook after undergoing a lung transplant. In addition to these inspiring stories, the program contains interviews with medical and scientific experts who share their perspectives on managing and transcending long-term illness.

Five roads to freedom : from apartheid to the World Cup ( visu )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The coming of the World Cup of Soccer for the first time to the African continent, in 2010, was seen as the flowering of the South African achievement: the destruction of institutionalized racism. Nelson Mandela's vision was for a 'rainbow nation' of equality, love and reconciliation. Did that promise come true? This documentary looks at South Africa's revolutionary transformation through the eyes of five men and women who lived under the shadow of apartheid. It focuses on five individuals from across the social and political spectrum: ordinary people whose experiences are representative of the profound changes of the past 15 years and whose lives in 2010 reflect both the promise and the ambiguities of today's South Africa - a former policeman, a young soccer star from the townships, a former warlord who denies the blood on his hands, the sister of a murdered ANC comrade and a wealthy white lawyer who lost everything for inter- racial love. Each of their experiences serves as an individual expression of the country's struggle to overcome its past, complete with a few victories thanks to the power of faith, family and a belief in the possibility of a new South Africa. Five Roads to Freedom is a personal project for filmmaker Robin Benger. As a South African student leader in the late 1960s and early 1970s, he was arrested three times for anti-apartheid activiies, and ultimately expelled from the country.
