Leviathan
In this cinema verite work set entirely on a groundfish trawler out of New Bedford, Mass., the filmmakers have avoided the standard equipment of interviews, analysis and explanation. A product of the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard, the film offers not information but immersion in wind, water, grinding machinery and piscine agony. The brutality of fishing, as opposed to its romance, is emphasized here. The experience is often unnerving and sometimes nauseating, because of the motions of the juddering, swaying hand-held camera and also because of the distended eyes, gasping mouths and mutilated flesh of the catch. Presented without dialogue, speech is drowned out by the roar of the elements and the screech and thump of engines and hydraulic winches.

Library in crisis
Dense with the informed commentary of notable scholars, this documentary in effect traces the history of civilization through the phenomenon of the library. From ancient China, India, Islam, and the Graeco Roman world, we see how the library radiated knowledge and spiritual values and facilitated the cross-fertilization of ideas from one culture to another. History also saw its share of censorhip and book burning. Now this venerable institution is under siege, these scholars suggest, from a variety of forces: the reliance of students on the Internet, digital technology, copyright law, the corporatization of libraries, and the devaluation of books.

Life and death on the A-list /
"This striking documentary by New York actor and playwright Jay Corcoran, details the life and death of Tom McBride, a New York actor and model dying of Progressive Multi-focal Leucoencephalopathy (PML), an AIDS-related brain disease. McBride's "All-American" good looks made him a familiar face in television commercials, print ads and films through the '70s and '80s. He even became that most emblematic of masculine images: the Winston man. For many gay men, McBride became an icon exemplifying life on the "A-List" -- the whirl of sex, drugs, theme parties, and summers on Fire Island that made New York's gay scene famous. But McBride's glamorous life was stalked by his sexual obsession and compulsive drive. Corcoran's film takes an unsparing look at one man's relationship to his beautiful body and how he copes with its disintegration. More profoundly, LIFE AND DEATH ON THE A-LIST is about us: our bodies, our fantasies, our dreams of sexual fulfillment. Tom McBride is a fallible, tragic hero pointing the way to a more humane vision of how we all -- gay and straight -- might view our lives, bodies, and the endless possibilities of life."--Corcoranproductions.com.

Life and work of Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian
"This documentary looks at the life and work of Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, who first garnered attention in the 1970s when she pioneered contemporary forms of geometric mirror works. Monir created an artistic language that was informed by traditional Iranian craft and architecture; formative years spent in New York in the 1940s and 50s and ongoing conversations with some of the 20th century's most experimental artists were also part of Monir's artistic universe. The film takes an intimate look at the artist's life and her practice, and explores how she has become one of the most innovative and influential artists working in the Middle East today. From her method of constructing mirror mosaics, to uncovering her past following the political changes in her own country and her subsequent migration to New York, and an artistic renewal sparked by her return to Tehran after an absence of 25 years, it offers an inspiring chronicle of Monir at the peak of her career."--From publisher website.

Life long learning in the pharmaceutical industry
Drug discovery and development is an interdisciplinary endeavor with a strong industrial base. The objective of this endeavor is to connect a preclinical hypothesis about how a new medicine might work to clinical validation of the hypothesis. A hypothesis is built on basic science derived from academic research much of which usually is supported by the federal government. Scientists in the pharmaceutical industry work at the interface between chemistry and biology to translate preclinical hypotheses into new medicines. Only a fraction of these translational efforts are successful. Because the pharmaceutical industry is a commercial enterprise, it is important to have a proper balance between financial risk-taking and value creation for patients and their physicians. At a time when advances in science have presented us with unprecedented opportunities to improve therapeutics for untreated or poorly treated diseases, the industry needs to return to this core principle for its business.

Life of Emile Zola
In 1862 Paris, Emile Zola is barely scratching out a living writing muckraking articles about the poverty of the French people and the corruption of their leaders. Until "Nana," about the life of a prostitute, becomes a smash hit and turns Zola into a celebrity, champion of the people. As he churns out a string of similar books that make him quite rich, his old friend Paul Cezanne tells him "An artist should remain poor." His determined intervention in the Dreyfus Affair, at the request of Dreyfus's wife Lucie, results in "J'accuse!" his famous denunciation of the Army, and leads to a conviction for libel. He flees to England, where he remains until granted amnesty. Unfortunately, he dies before the news that Dreyfus was exonerated and reinstated to full rank can reach him. Indicative of the mores of its time, during the course of this clear story about institutionalized anti-Semitism, the word "Jew" is never mentioned. And while most Hollywood biographies must be taken with a grain--if not a handful--of salt, the film makes a reasonable effort at accuracy and completeness.

Little Jerusalem : Burlington's Jewish Community /
"In the late 19th century, faced with growing repression, many Eastern European Jews sought freedom in North America. During that exodus, a core of immigrants from neighboring rural villages, or shtetls, in Lithuania made their way to Burlington, Vt., a bustling lumber port surrounded by a countryside that reminded them of home.

Loin du Vietnam Far from Vietnam /
"Initiated and edited by Chris Marker, Far from Vietnam is an epic 1967 collaboration between cinema greats Jean-Luc Godard, Joris Ivens, William Klein, Claude Lelouch and Alain Resnais in protest of American military involvement in Vietnam--made, per Marker's narration, 'to affirm, by the exercise of their craft, their solidarity with the Vietnamese people in struggle against aggression.' A truly collaborative effort, the film brings together an array of stylistically disparate contributions, none individually credited, under a unified editorial vision. The elements span documentary footage shot in North and South Vietnam and at anti-war demonstrations in the United States; a fictional vignette and a monologue that dramatize the self-interrogation of European intellectuals; interviews with Fidel Castro and Anne Morrison, widow of Norman Morrison, the Quaker pacifist who burned himself alive on the steps of the White House in 1965; an historical overview of the conflict; reflections from French journalist Michèle Ray; and a range of repurposed media material."--www.icarusfilms.com

Lone wolf and cub
Sword of vengeance: He was Ogami Itto, a man who held himself to the harsh code of Bushido. Their first commission: to save the life of Daimyo and kill the traitors that plot his death. Baby Cart at the River Styx: The Yagyu clan has murdered Ogami Itto's wife, and had him stripped of his position of Official Shogunate Second. Now Ogami and his son Diagoro wander the countryside. Baby cart at the River Styx: In this exploitation-cinema classic, which took the action and graphic violence of the Lone Wolf and Cub series to delirious new heights, Itto Ogami and Daigoro continue their quest for vengeance through meifumado, the spiritual way of "demons and damnation," pursued constantly by the Shadow Yagyu clan and the shogun's spies. Baby cart in Hades:Unfolding in an idyllic countryside that contrasts sharply with the violence that occurs within it, the third Lone Wolf and Cub film follows Itto Ogami and Daigoro as they continue their journey and stumble upon a crime scene involving a group of lowlife swordsmen from the watari-kashi class. Baby cart in peril: In this distinctly lowbrow entry in the Lone Wolf and Cub series, Itto Ogami is hired by the Owari clan to assassinate a tattooed woman who is killing her enemies and cutting off their topknots. Meanwhile, Daigoro is separated from his father when he follows a pair of traveling street performers outside of town. Baby cart in the land of demons: 5 warriors challenge Ogami to duels. Each has 1/5th of Ogami's assassin fee and 1/5 of the information he needs to complete his assassination. His mission is to kill a mad Daimyo before he destroys his clan! White heaven in hell: In the final Lone Wolf and Cub film, star Tomisaburo Wakayama decided to make the sort of wild movie he'd always wanted to: one in which Lone Wolf battles zombies and Daigoro's baby cart zips improbably across an icy landscape on skis. Shogun Assassin, made in 1980, is an English-dubbed reedit of the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films, Sword of vengeance and Baby cart at the River Styx.

It presents a picture of a family that has changed because of national and familial politics, and discusses a variety of subject matter within the Chagga tribe, such as education, history, politics, tradition, social hierarchies, marriage and rape. Kimaro eventually finds a connection with the women in her family because of their similar experiences of sexual abuse. Although the memories they harbor are unpleasant and painful to talk about, the acknowledgement of their pasts brings closure and peace. Kimaro's film reminds the viewer that even the most inexplicable of experiences will eventually find their meaning in the right context where one can finally say, "I understand, because I am a lot like you." -- from alotlikeyoumovie.com website.
