"Linda Bishop was a loving mother, a well-educated and happy woman. Then her body was found in an abandoned New Hampshire farmhouse, marked by cold and starvation. What was once Linda Bishop had quickly become a mystery, accompanied by her diary that documents a journey of starvation and the loss of sanity. For nearly four months, Bishop, a prisoner of her own mind, survived on apples and rainwater during one of the coldest winters on record. As her story unfolds from different perspectives, including her own, we learn the heartbreaking reality about a systemic failure to protect those who cannot protect themselves."--IMDb

The Bullish Farmer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over a decade ago, John Ubaldo, aka 'John Boy,' decided to call it quits with his career in high finance. Distraught over the loss of his best friend in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, John decided to purchase 185 acres of land on the Battenkill River in Cambridge, NY, and to live a quiet life as a small farmer raising livestock and crops. His goal was to raise delicious and nutritious food and return to healthier farming methods that were used 100 years ago. But John's dream of living an uncomplicated, traditional, agrarian life gets complicated when he comes up against Big Agriculture (Big Ag), a corporate farming technique that uses all-in-one resources for large-scale producers, operators, and growers. With this ever-growing monolith in the background, John soon realizes that his preferred farming methods are not in sync with today's prevailing agricultural practices. This very private farmer becomes a passionate and outspoken activist lobbying for GMO (genetically modified organisms) labeling, animal rights, the preservation of crop diversity, and the reduction of chemical fertilizers to help preserve small farms and rural America. The birth of John's first child only deepens John's commitment to leave the world a better place for all children." -- Publisher's website

To the Edge of the Sky( Visual )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"To the Edge of the Sky is about four moms whose sons are diagnosed with the degenerative Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a fatal disease that's the No. 1 genetic killer of boys, as they fight the FDA to gain access to a potentially life-saving drug [Eteplirsen]. Victims are not expected to live beyond their 20s. The film intimately records the transformation of these four mothers into the country's leading political activists pushing the government to allow access to a drug that might help save their sons' lives. The film captures how citizen activists can impact government; the "Right to Try" Bill just passed in the Senate largely due to the political moxie of the four women featured in To the Edge of the Sky. The "Right to Try" Bill allows terminally ill patients to have the right to try medicines after the medication has gone through only Phase One of the FDA process but is not yet fully approved. The law has been signed in 37 states. To The Edge of the Sky captures the evolution of four mothers from caregivers for their terminally ill children, with all of the ensuing stress and strain on their personal relationships, to ardent political activists, learning how to navigate government agencies and company boardrooms to reach their goal."--junofilms.com
