Never enough a documentary ( visu )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 179 libraries worldwide
"Do we own our things, or do they own us? Michele has 700 sweaters. When the pain of over collecting outweighs the pleasure, she calls Ron "Disaster Master" Alford for help. Ron, a de-cluttering expert who believes "clutter begins in the head and ends up on the floor,' determines Michele is a hoarder with a rating of 8/10 on his 'clutter index.' Ron also visits a Marine with 7,800 Beanie Babies and a Home Shopping Network addict whose purchases are literally burying him. [This film] is a documentary meditation on materialism, consumerism, mental illness, and the social fabric of our lives"--DVD container
My Brooklyn ( visu )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 133 libraries worldwide
"My Brooklyn follows director Kelly Anderson's journey, as a Brooklyn gentrifier, to understand the forces reshaping her neighborhood. The film documents the redevelopment of Fulton Mall, a bustling African-American and Caribbean commercial district that - despite its status as the third most profitable shopping area in New York City - is maligned for its inability to appeal to the affluent residents who have come to live around it. As a hundred small businesses are replaced by high rise luxury housing and chain retail, Anderson uncovers the web of global corporations, politicians and secretive public-private partnerships that drive seemingly natural neighborhood change. The film's ultimate question is increasingly relevant on a global scale: who has a right to live in cities and determine their future?" -- http://www.newday.com/

Long way from home ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Cindy. Sarah. Sage. Three smart girls enter ninth grade at top schools. There they confront, for the first time, a world very different from the one they come from. A story of youthful adventure. The tumultuous emotions of coming of age. The anxiety of measuring up to the standards of their new communities. Armed with freshness and honesty, the girls pierce through the preconceived notions of a world, whose attitudes don't seem to encompass a larger sense of experience or history. An intense and intimate journey, Long Way from Home tackesl timely themes: How does a society steeped in traditions, ideas and biases of the past, learn to embrace diversity as a strenght? How do we rethink "belonging" to include differences? -- From container
