Neshoba: the price of freedom tells the story of a Mississippi town still divided about the meaning of justice, 40 years after the murders of civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, an event dramatized in the Oscar-winning film Mississippi Burning. Although Klansmen bragged about what they did in 1964, no one was held accountable until 2005, when the State indicted preacher Edgar Ray Killen, an 80-year-old notorious racist and mastermind of the murders. Through exclusive interviews with Killen, intimate interviews with the victims' families, and candid interviews with black and white Neshoba county citizens still struggling with their town's violent past, the film explores whether the prosecution of one unrepentant Klansman constitutes justice and whether healing and reconciliation are possible without telling the unvarnished truth--Container.

Surveys network dramas, sitcoms, reality shows, and premium cable programming to show how the portrayal of GLBT characters is often marked by ambivalence and tension.

Nipi Voice /
Rapid change from traditional to modern life in Nunavut, like many post-colonial societies, has concentrated power, wealth and information in a few hands. Far-reaching decisions are being made daily by a mostly-unelected political elite with minimal input from under-informed citizens scattered over enormous distances. With no elected legislature in place until April 1999, Inuit organizations and their government advisors made these decisions on trust. 'Soft' media coverage is provided by these same insiders themselves: government agencies like CBC radio/TV and Government of NWT Information Networks, or the Inuit establishment through politically-controlled sources like IBC and TVNC. The absence of independent Inuit media scrutiny means there is little criticism or public debate about these important decisions. Nipi examines fundamental questions of democracy, power and change in Nunavut and indirectly in Canada itself: in education, religion, gender, lifestyle, the distribution of economic development and the make-up and inner structure of the new leadership class.

Not just a game
"We've been told again and again that sports and politics don't mix. But the way sportswriter Dave Zirin sees it, this is wishful thinking. In this powerful documentary, Ziriin, the iconoclastic sports editor of The Nation magazine, takes viewers on a fascinating and uncompromising tour of the good, the bad, and the ugly of American sports culture -- showing how sports have helped both to stabilize and to disrupt the political status quo throughtout history. After first exploring how American sports, at their worst, have reinforced repressive political ideas and institutions by mindlessly glamorizing things like militarism, racism, sexism, and homophobia, Zirin excavates a largely forgotten -- and ultimately exhilarating -- history of rebel athletes who dared to fight for social justice beyond the field of play." -- Container.

Note by note the making of Steinway L1037 /
This documentary follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand, #L1037 -- from forest floor to concert hall. It explores the relationship between musician and instrument, chronicles the manufacturing process, and illutrates what makes each Steinway unique in this age of mass production. From the factory floor in Queens, NY to Steinway Hall in Manhattan, each piano's journey is complex -- spanning 12 months, 12,000 parts, 450 craftsmen, and countless hours of fine-tuned labor. 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.

Nuremberg les Nazis face à leurs crimes = Nuremberg : the Nazis facing their crimes /
"Nuremberg, November 20, 1945--The trials of Nazi war criminals begins in a city still in ruins, barely six months after the Germans' surrender. The United States, France, Great Britain and the USSR unite to deliver exemplary justice in response to crimes against peace and, for the first time in history, to "crimes against humanity". On the accused bench sit 21 of the highest Nazi dignitaries, including Hermann Göring, Rudolph Hess, Joachim von Ribbentrop and Wilhelm Keitel. They all plead not guilty, although the "atrocities" committed are tremendous. As evidence, films of the liberation of the concentration camps would be screened, an unprecedented move, during the proceedings. Evidence is presented, confrontations arise, testimonies of executioners and victims are heard. After 10 months of hearings, the verdict is rendered: 12 defendants sentenced to death penalties, including one in absentia, seven sentenced to prison and three acquitted. Thus ends the trial that paved the way for the creation of international tribunals."--Container.
