Guerrilla : the taking of Patty Hearst ( visu )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 367 libraries worldwide
In today's new and scarier age of terrorism, the actions of a small collection of mixed-race, largely middle-class radical leftists fighting against the Vietnam War, racism, and other social ills in the 1970's seem emblematic of the cultural chaos of the era, nothing more. The event of 1974 occurred when a group calling themselves the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped19-year-old newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst in Berkeley, California. The crime received nearly round-the-clock coverage, and made the SLA into counterculture superstars. There are gaps in the story but the film contains rare and long unseen newsreel footage, interviews with two SLA members, and offers a fascinating portrait of not only a kind of psychopathic idealism but also a whole era of extraordinary social turmoil
The First Amendment project ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 363 libraries worldwide
Some assembly required: This film examines the protests during the 2004 Republican National Convention focusing on the disconnect between society's desire for order and the NYPD's overzealous application of force in stamping out potential threats to the placid image of the GOP's "big tent." Mainstream media downplayed the protests to the point of near-invisibility during the convention, so this portrait of articulate protesters serves as a corrective
Unknown white male a true story by Rupert Murray( visu )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 343 libraries worldwide
"Just imagine waking up tomorrow with no memory of today or any other since the day of your birth. Imagine living without a history, without experience, no relationships and no past troubles. Imagine starting your life over again, making a new set of friends, finding new talents and falling in love for the first time. On the 2nd of July 2003, Doug Bruce left his apartment on the Lower East Side at about 8pm. No one knew where he was going and no one knew he had gone. He turned up, eleven hours later, on the New York subway heading to Coney Island and he had no idea who he was. This documentary tells the story of a man who, for no apparent reason, lost 37 years of life history, who lost every memory of his friends, his family and every experience he had ever known. This true story follows Doug in the hours and months following his amnesia, as he tries to piece his life back together and has to discover the world anew."--SBS website
