Mae West the glamour collection /
Mae West had an inexhaustibly playful interest in language, and a rare, sometimes perplexing, and even lofty wit, spiced by low-down slang. Well before the second wave of feminism, she wrote all her own material, insisted on total control of her work, and was wildly popular for a short time, right before the Production Code lowered the boom on adult attitudes being expressed in films. She made only 12 movies, but three are first-rate, and these were enough to seal her fame and launch a legend. In her first film appearance, "Night after night," a successful ex-boxer buys a high-class speakeasy and falls for a rich society girl. As the bold Tira in "I'm no angel," she works as a dancing beauty and lion tamer at a fair. For "Goin' to town," West goes Western. Cleo Borden is a former dance hall queen who has become newly rich. She falls for--and pursues--an upper crust Englishman. This is followed by "Go west young man," where she plays Mavis Arden, a movie star stranded in the country. To stifle her boredom, she trifles with a young man's affections. "My little chickadee" pairs West with a legend of similar stature, W.C. Fields. As Flower Belle Lee, she is rightly suspected of illicit relations with the Masked Bandit, and run out of Little Bend. Surprisingly, things change very little when she arrives in Greasewood City to start over.

Magic box the films of Shirley Clarke, 1929-1987 /
Shirley Clarke was brilliant, scandalous, bold, and incredibly talented. Had she been a man, film historians would have long ago placed her in the pantheon of great auteurs, alongside Orson Welles and John Cassavetes. Today, her triumph can be recognized in her ability to be herself--one of the great originals of her time. A true artist, Clarke combined her innate impishness and sense of adventure with a dancer's aesthetic and her tremendous drive to battle injustice to make films that dazzle, challenge, and beguile the audience. The culmination of an eight-year-long effort to explore the films and life of American filmmaker Shirley Clarke, this collection includes the Academy Award-winning documentary "Robert Frost : a lover's quarrel with the world," experimental shorts, "lost" films, unfinished projects, outtakes, and a lifetime of home movies.

This documentary follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand, #L1037 -- from forest floor to concert hall.

This film is a loving celebration of not just craftsmanship, but of a dying breed of person who is deeply connected to working by hand. In the end, this is an ode to the most unexpected, and perhaps, ironic, of unsung heroes. It reminds us how extraordinary the dialogue can be between an artist and an instrument -- crafted out of human hands but borne of the materials of nature.

Mansions, monuments & masterpieces
Visit the extraordinary structures built by the men who rode the railroads to vast fortunes. As the rails spread out across America in the late 19th century, a handful of men reaped the majority of the profits. LeGrand Lockwood's name is largely forgotten now, but the investment banker--a prime early backer of the railroads--was one of America's first millionaires. Twenty years before the excesses of the Gilded Age, he built a 50-room palace in his boyhood home of Norwalk, Connecticut. A far more famous residence is Lyndhurst, the Hudson River home of financier Jay Gould. As befitted his status as one of America's most hated men, it is as much a fortress as a home. But the greatest of all the monuments erected by the railroad kings was, appropriately, a station. Cornelius Vanderbilt was derided for constructing the massive Grand Central Terminal on what was then the unfashionable outskirts of New York. Today, the restored station remains a vibrant hub, and is celebrated as one of the most important buildings in America.

In 1983, the first mobile device was launched. The Motorola Dynatac 8000x was a heavy, brick-like device that was - well - not very mobile, but still caused a great sensation. Since then, thousands of models appeared and in just a few years cellphones decreased in size and weight and went from being a luxury device to a mainstream commodity (and eventually becoming the most rapidly adopted technology in human history). Today, everything is a couple of buttons away. By 2015, there will be more than one mobile device per person on earth. Your customers are already mobile... are you?

Marketing has always been closely related to psychology. It is the art of persuasion. Everyone wants to find new methods of making people do and buy stuff. In the past decade or so, marketing experts have become more and more passionate about the human brain and are trying to figure out how neuromarketing can help build the brands of the future. Neuromarketing has proven that in order to sell, you need not to sell products, but rather seduce your consumer.

In the past, brands pushed out messages that came across as certainties and the customers obliged, buying more and more products. Then came the time of 'the customer is always right', but no one truly believed he was (brands just wanted to reach further). During the 1990s, companies realized that customers were no longer sticking around and that they were no longer blindly following their lead. As the Internet and social media flourished, new and better opportunities to improve customer service appeared. In today's increasingly connected world, the customer is king and brands need to accept that they no longer are in control. Brands can no longer be defined top-down.

Mask you live in
"The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race. class and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become 'real' men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the 'boy crisis' and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men"--Representation Project website.

Mean world syndrome media violence & the cultivation of fear /
"For years, debates have raged among scholars, politicians, and concerned parents about the effects of media violence on viewers. Too often these debates have descended into simplistic battles between those who claim that media messages directly cause violence and those who argue that activists exaggerate the impact of media exposure altogether. The Mean World Syndrome, based on the groundbreaking work of media scholar George Gerbner, urges us to think about media effects in more nuanced ways. Ranging from Hollywood movies and prime-time dramas to reality programming and the local news, the film examines how media violence feeds a fear-charged cultural environment that cultivates a heightened state of insecurity, exaggerated perceptions of risk and danger, and an appetite for hard-line and repressive political solutions to social problems. A provocative and accessible introduction to cultivation analysis, media effects research, and the subject of media influence and media violence"--Container.

"We've heard again and again that men and women are engaged in a 'battle of the sexes,' that we're so differently wired and so foreign to each other that we might as well come from different planets.

This is an accessible and entertaining introduction to gender politics and gender theory - as intellectually informative as it is inspiring, and suited for use across a range of disciplines and courses"--Container.

Menschliches versagen
The expropriation of assets from German Jews, during the Third Reich, benefitted virtually every German citizen. It was not only the Gestapo who invaded Jewish residences in order to confiscate all property, from bank accounts to the last shirt, it was the German tax officials. A competition evolved between bureaucrats as to how to organize the robbery of the Jews before they were expelled, or sent to their deaths. Larger assets went to the tax offices, and the smaller assets and goods were sold to friends and neighbors in public auctions of "non-Aryan" property. Many of the documents proving this expropriation were lost or destroyed; the ones that remained were hidden away. Using first-hand accounts, award-winning filmmaker Michael Verhoeven goes on a search to unearth evidence documenting one of the greatest robberies in human history"--Container.

In a Japanese prison camp on Java in 1942, two British officers, John Lawrence and Jack Celliers, encounter camp commander Yonoi and his sergeant Hara.

Lawrence speaks Japanese, and ceaselessly tries to mediate between the prisoners and their overseers, translating both the words and the values of the two races. Celliers' attitude, however, is more comprehensible to Yonoi.

Michael Kimmel : Mars, Venus or planet Earth? : men & women in a new millenium [sic]
"We've heard again and again that men and women are engaged in a 'battle of the sexes,' that we're so differently wired and so foreign to each other that we might as well come from different planets. In this powerful new lecture, renowned speaker and best selling author Michael Kimmel ... turnes this conventional wisdom on its head. With clarity and humor, Kimmel moves beyond the popular inter-planetary notion that 'men are from Mars and women are from Venus' to advance a decidedly more earth-bound and interconnected view of the things men and women have in common. This is an accessible and entertaining introduction to gender politics and gender theory - as intellectually informative as it is inspiring, and suited for use across a range of disciplines and courses"--Container.

Mio viaggio in Italia My voyage to Italy /
Martin Scorsese directs and narrates this personal documentary about Italian film and select Italian filmmakers and the influence they had on him. It begins with an overview of Scorsese's family history including their Sicilian roots, life in Little Italy, and the filmmaker's recollections of watching neorealist and epic Italian films on television and how those movies acted as a lifeline for the older members of his family, maintaining their connection to the old country. Scorsese discusses director Roberto Rossellini, focusing on the films: Open city (Roma, Citt ̉Aperta), Paisan (Paisà (both 1946), The miracle (Il miracolo, 1947), Stromboli (1949), Flowers of Saint Francis (Francesco, giullare di Dio, 1950), Europa '51 (1952), and Voyage to Italy (Viaggio in Italia, 1953). He then discusses director Vittorio De Sica, and his films: Shoeshine (Sciuscià, 1946), The bicycle thief (Ladri di biciclette, 1947), and Umberto D. (1952). Scorsese explores the career of Luchino Visconti, his apprenticeship as a crewmember under Jean Renoir, and his films: Ossessione (1943), La terra trema (1948), and Senso (1954). Scorsese then moves on to Federico Fellini and examines his films: I Vitelloni (1953), La dolce vita (1960), and 8 1/2 (1963) as examples of the evolution of Fellini's style. Scorsese concludes the documentary with the cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni and close readings of The adventure (L'avventura, 1960) and The eclipse (L'eclisse, 1962).

Misogyny in media and culture
"Despite the achievements of the women's movement over the past four decades, misogyny remains a persistent force in American culture. In this important new documentary, Thomas Keith, Professor of Philosophy at California State University, Long Beach, looks specifically at misogyny and sexism in mainstream American media, exploring how negative definitions of femininity and hateful attitudes toward women get constructed and perpetuated at the very heart of our popular culture. The film tracks the destructive dynamics of misogyny across a broad and disturbing range of media phenomena: including the hyper-sexualization of commercial products aimed at girls, the explosion of violence in video games aimed at boys, the near-hysterical sexist rants of hip-hop artists and talk radio shock jocks, and the harsh, patronizing caricatures of femininity and feminism that reverberate throughout the mainstream of American popular culture. Along the way, Generation M forces us to confront the dangerous real-life consequences of misogyny in all of its forms--making a compelling case that when we devalue more than half the population based on gender, we harm boys and men as well as women and girls"--Container.

Mission to Moscow
"In their relentless battle against Hitler, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were comrades ... or at least comrades-in-arms. Hollywood joined the fight with Mission to Moscow, based on Ambassador Joseph E. Davies' bestseller about his pre-World War II experiences in the Soviet Union. The film features Academy Award winner Walter Huston as Davies, plus accomplished actors playing the headline-dominating figures of Churchill, Stalin, von Ribbentrop, Litvinov, Molotov and more. For its sometimes-sympathetic picture of Stalin's regime, the film sparked impassioned debate then and remains fascinating now, both for its insights into early American-Soviet relations and its urgent sense of the danger the emerging Axis Powers posed to the world"--Container.

"A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control found that a single fast-food hamburger contained beef from more than 100 cows.

Moi, un noir : (Treichville) /

The film depicts an ordinary week in the lives of men and women from Niger who have migrated to Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, for work. After a short introduction by Rouch, 'Edward G. Robinson'--Omarou Ganda, who like the film's other subject-collaborators plays himself under the name of a Western movie star--takes over the film's narration, recreating dialogue and providing freewheeling commentary on his experiences. Robinson describes the bitter reality of life in Treichville, a poor inner suburb populated largely by migrants, and his work as a day laborer (bozori) in the ports ... Rouch's stylistic innovations here exerted a profound influence on the French New Wave, and his collaborative process helped bolster the national cinemas of West Africa"--Container.

Monir
"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.

Mormons
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of America's fastest-growing religions and, relative to its size, one of the richest. Church membership, now at over 12 million and growing, sweeps the globe. Nevertheless, from the moment of its founding in 1830, the church has been controversial. Within a month, it had 40 converts and almost as many enemies. In the early years, Mormons were hated, ridiculed, persecuted, and feared. Yet in the past several decades, the Mormon church has transformed itself from a fringe sect into a thriving religion that embraces mainstream American values; its members include prominent and powerful politicians, university presidents, and corporate leaders. Mormons have always had a peculiar hold on the American imagination, but few know who the Mormons actually are or who they claim to be, and their story is one of the great neglected American narratives.

The effects of "nature deficit disorder" are now being noted across the country in epidemics of child obesity, attention disorders, and depression. Mother Nature's Child asks the questions: Why do children need unstructured time outside? What is the place of risk-taking in healthy child development? How is play a form of learning? Why are teachers resistant to taking students outside? How can city kids connect with nature? What does it mean to educate the 'whole' child? -- from http://www.mothernaturesmovie.com/the-film/
