Biggie and Tupac by Nick Broomfield( Visual )

31 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the mid-'90s a deadly East Coast vs. West Coast rap rivalry erupted, fought between the New York-based camp of Sean "Puffy" Combs and his Bad Boy label, home to Brooklyn's Biggie Smalls (a.k.a. Notorious B.I.G., legally Christopher Wallace), and West Coast riders at Marion "Suge" Knight's Death Row records, home to Tupac Shakur. The feud quickly escalated from CD disses to real-life crime, and murder. On Sept. 7, 1996, Tupac Shakur, 25, was gunned down gangland-style at a traffic light in Las Vegas. On March 9, 1997, Wallace, 24, was sprayed with bullets while sitting in an SUV outside a Los Angeles music industry party. Neither crime has been solved; nobody has ever been arrested in connection with the killings. Documentarian Nick Broomfield plunges fearlessly into this milieu, believing that more is there than meets the eye. The resulting film is an unwieldy mixture of investigative journalism and awkward comedy, but as human drama, it is a revelation

His big white self revisited by Nick Broomfield( Visual )

The leader, his driver and the driver's wife, made in 1991, is a documentary about the neo-Nazi society AWB (Afrikaner-Weerstandsbeweging), a white supremacist movement that existed in South Africa just before the end of apartheid. Focuses on interviews with the leader Eugene Terreblanche and various individuals in his entourage. We see the leader's hatred and racial nationalism exposed in the raw. His big white self, made in 2006, "further explores Terreblanche's absurd, yet insidious character, exposing his regime's stark and sobering impact that lingers to this day. Broomfield revisits the familiar and haunted faces of those brought down and broken by democracy's rise in South Africa, finally confronting the newly released and unrepentant Terreblanche in a manner not only tense but also hilarious and unforgettable"--Container
