The inspiring story of how a small town in West Virginia, steeped in the rich tradition of college football, struggled to cope with a devastating loss and restore their community after one of the worst disasters in the history of American sports. On the evening of Saturday, November 14, 1970, a chartered jet carrying Marshall University's football team, coaches and fans, was on its way home from a hard-fought game in North Carolina.

They find hope and strength in the leadership of outsider Jack Lengyel, a young coach determined to rebuild Marshall's football program.

William Shakespeare's A Midsummer night's dream by Michael Hoffman( visu )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 1,965 libraries worldwide
In the village of Monte Athena in Italy at the turn of the 19th century, necklines are high, parents are rigid, and marriage is seldom a matter of love. Thus, Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander, while her father wants only Demetrius for his son-in-law. Poor Helena burns hot for Demetrius, who avoids her like the plague. Meanwhile, fairy king Oberon is engaged in a battle of wits with his queen, Titania, and has commanded a trick of Puck, which naturally goes horribly wrong. They are all in the enchanted wood on a midsummer's eve, coming out in the end charged with a gift from the fairies--an enchanted eroticism--that sweeps them away to bed chambers and weddings. The film celebrates love's ability to alter reality while quietly acknowledging that any attempt to portray the feeling of love ultimately falls short

Howl by Robert P Epstein( visu )
30 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,086 libraries worldwide
"Every word in this film was spoken by the actual people portrayed. In that sense this film is like a documentary. In every other sense, it is different"--Title screen. In 1957, in San Francisco, poet Allen Ginsberg has just published "Howl." This distinctive work immediately generates a great deal of controversy. Publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti has been sued on charges of obscenity, as many feel the poem is simply too explicit for publication (it contains strong language and frank references to homosexuality). When prosecutor Ralph McIntosh and defender Jake Ehrlich go head to head in front of Judge Clayton Horn, freedom of expression hangs in the balance. For the author, filled with the heady joy of poetic success, the trial demands the courage of being Allen Ginsberg--himself
