Last train home Gui tu lie che ( visu )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in Chinese and English and held by 989 libraries worldwide
Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year's holiday. This mass exodus is the world's largest human migration--an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Director Lixin Fan draws us into the fractured lives of a single migrant family caught up in this desperate annual migration. Sixteen years ago, the Zhangs abandoned their young children to find work in the city, consoled by the hope that their wages would lift their children into a better life. But in a bitter irony, the Zhangs' hopes for the future are undone by their very absence. Qin, the daughter they left behind, has grown into adolescence crippled by a sense of abandonment. In an act of teenage rebellion, she drops out of school. She too will become a garment factory worker. The decision is a heartbreaking blow for the parents. Last Train Home follows the Zhangs' attempts to change their daughter's course and repair their ruptured family
Rip! a remix manifesto ( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 262 libraries worldwide
Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'

"Taqwacore chronicles the nascent Muslim punk rock movement in America. It was inspired by the work of Michael Knight, a convert to Islam who wrote the novel The Taqwacores (a term combining the Muslim concept of God consciousness with hardcore punk). ... The film follows Knight and a variety of young subversives on tour as they shock and awe spectators in the U.S. before bringing their music to Lahore. They break every taboo along the way ...

Punk le vote! by Eric "Roach." Denis( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
Roach and Starbuck, two hardcore punks from Montreal, try to form their own political party but run out of time due to Canada's electoral process. Instead, they decide to campaign for political office as independent candidates. As they hit the campaign trail in one of Canada's wealthiest communities, each wants to do it his own way. While Roach proposes to reform our rotting electoral system, Starbuck's punk rock performance art is designed to shock the electorate into waking the fuck up. Roach mounts a media campaign proposing proportional representation; Starbuck campaigns door-to-door wearing a leather cape and a dildo, telling voters: "if you like it up the ass, vote Liberal." Anarchy or Federalism - what's the true path for a punk?

Every year in China the same dramatic ritual takes place: In the factory towns of the south, millions of migrant factory workers fight for space on overcrowded trains, trying to return home for the Chinese New Year. The Zhangs have lived this way for twenty years. They barely know their own children, who are being raised by relatives back home. This year, the tenous family model has broken and they travel with additional purpose: they must bring home their runaway teenage daughter, so that she can return to school and not have to spend the rest of her life in a factory
