Satree-lex
The true story of a Thai male volleyball team that competes in the national championships in 1996 with a team consisting mostly of gays, transsexuals, and transvestites. At the heart of the team are Mon, a weary transvestite who is a fantastic player, and his best friend Jun, a raucous drag queen with hilariously over-supportive parents. They get their chance to show their stuff when the provincial governor hires a suspiciously butch female head coach to put together a "dream team" for the national competitions. She announces that there will be open tryouts, and when Mon and Jun get selected, their macho teammates resign en masse--all except Chai, whose self-respect is obstinately tied to his success on the court. When the coach asks Mon to find some friends to join the squad, he knows just who to pick: Nong, a muscle-laden army sergeant and makeup artist; Pia, a transsexual stage star; Wit, a closeted Chinese-Thai boy; and, perhaps most memorably, April, May and June, Jun's transvestite triplet friends! Plenty of conflict ensues, with the straight captain Chai learning tolerance, and the more selfish of the "girls" learning team spirit. Other darker problems are hinted at with occasional outbreaks of homophobic violence against outspoken Jun and the shame that some parents feel about their gay children, but the team gradually melds into an impressive unit, emerging triumphant in match after match. They even find a way to shame the conservative game authorities who try and disqualify them!

Savage memory
In 1915, Bronislaw Malinowski set out to document the 'exotic' practices of a small group of islanders off the coast of Papua New Guinea. With extensive data on sex, magic and spirits of the dead, his work set the stage for anthropologists for decades to come and brought him fame as one of the founding fathers of anthropology. Four generations and almost one hundred years later, his great grandson travels to the Trobriand Islands in Papua New Guinea and looks at the very controversial legacy Malinowski left behind - within the field of anthropology, within his own family and among the descendants of the people he studied. The film follows a layered landscape of narrative threads: the story of Malinowski's last surviving daughter and her ambivalence towards her father's painful legacy; the Trobriand Islanders surprising personal relationship to Malinwoski as they witness the impact of westernization on their changing customs; and the story of Malinowski himself- the triumphant, self-made mythical anthropologist.

What really happens when we replace a traditional culture's way of learning and understanding the world with our own? Beautifully shot on location in the Buddhist culture of Ladakh in the northern Indian Himalayas, [the film] takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world's last sustainable indigenous cultures." -- Container.

Science is fiction 23 films by Jean Painlevé /
Long before Jacques Cousteau and Richard Attenborough, a Frenchman named Jean Painlevé made documentaries that captured the natural world in a unique manner. "Science Is Fiction" collects 23 of these short films. Painlevé (1902-89) spent his life straddling the arts and the sciences, studying biology at the Sorbonne, but also hanging out with Man Ray and Luis Buñuel. Long fascinated by marine life, Painlevé helped develop the underwater camera, one of the first handheld cameras, and high-magnification lenses that allowed him to observe creatures like sea urchins, jellyfish, and mollusks in their natural habitats. Though relatively obscure in the United States, Jean Painlevé's films embrace genre, combining documentary, educational film, and avant-garde experimentalism to create an aesthetic that captures the fantastic by means of the purely factual.

Secrets of the tribe
"The field of anthropology goes under the magnifying glass in this fiery investigation of the seminal research on Yanomami Indians. In the 1960s and '70s, a steady stream of anthropologists filed into the Amazon Basin to observe this "virgin" society untouched by modern life. Thirty years later, the events surrounding this infiltration have become a scandalous tale of academic ethics and infighting. The origins of violence and war and the accuracy of data gathering are hotly debated among the scholarly clan, Soon these disputes take on "Heart of Darkness" overtones as they decend into shadowy allegations of sexual and medical violation. Director José Padilha brilliantly employs two provocative strategies to raise unsettling questions about the boundaries of cultural encounters. He allows professors accused of heinous activities to defend themselves, and the Yanomamö to represent their side of the story. As this riviting excavation deconstructs anthropology's colonial legacy, it challenges our society's myths of objectivity and the very notion of "the other.""--Container.

For a lucky few refugees, however, there is hope. A group of multinational activists has taken it upon themselves to create an Underground Railroad. Via a network of safe houses and escape routes, the activists -- at great personal risk -- help the refugees on daring escapes to freedom over hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of miles of Chinese territory"--Producers.

Sext up kids
The powder keg that is porn culture has exploded in the lives of North American children. From thongs and padded bras for 9-year-old girls to "sexting," 24-7 internet porn, and unfiltered social media, kids today are bombarded with commercial sexual appeals like never before. In this astonishing new documentary, award-winning documentary filmmaker Maureen Palmer explores what this radical transformation of the culture means for young people, parents, and our very notions of childhood. Palmer interviews researchers who have been tracking how the accelerating pressure to be sexy -- and sexual -- is changing kids' behavior and undermining their health. She sits down with parents and educators struggling to help kids navigate puberty in a hypermediated cultural environment that no longer seems to recognize or respect the developmental needs of children. And she talks to teens and pre-teens who share eerily casual insights into the routine role sex plays in their lives. The result is a stunning exploration of the sexualization of childhood and a startling wake-up call for parents who still think their own children are immune to the excesses and influences of today's sexed-up youth culture.

"Joseph Fisher's memoir was discovered only after his death. His children refused to confront it, except for David, the filmmaker, for whom it became a compass for a long journey. When he found it unbearable to be alone in the wake of his father's survival story and his struggle not to lose his sanity, David persuaded his siblings to join him in the hope that this would also contribute to releasing tensions and making them as close as they used to be. They, for their part, couldn't understand why anyone should want to dig into the past instead of enjoying life in the present. In the dark depths of the B8 Bergkristall tunnels, part of the Austrian KZ Gusen II concentration camp, where their father had slaved during the Holocaust, illuminated only by flashlights, the Fishers seek meaning in their personal and family histories. As their deepest pains are exposed, they find themselves crying and laughing, in bitter-sweet scenes that give this personal film a rare sense of intimacy." --Wikipedia.

Shugendo now
"This feature documentary is an experiential journey in to the mystical practices of Japanese mountain asceticism. In Shugendo(The Way of Acquiring Power), practitioners perform ritual actions from shamanism, Shinto, Daoism, and Tantric Buddhism. They seek experiential truth of the teachings during arduous climbs in sacred mountains. Through the peace and beauty of the natural world, practitioners purify the six roots of perception, revitalize their energy and reconnect with their truest nature -- all while grasping the fundamental interconnectedness with nature and all sentient beings. More poetic than analytical, this film explores how a group of modern Japanese people integrate the myriad ways mountain learning interacts with urban life. With intimate camera work and a sensual sound design the viewer is taken from deep within the Kumano mountains to the floating worlds of Osaka and Tokyo and back again. - From the film's website.

Sign painters
"There was a time-as recently as the 1980s-when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our visual landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. In 2010 filmmakers Faythe Levine, coauthor of Handmade Nation, and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. Sign Painters, the first anecdotal history of the craft, features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States."--Distributor.

Sila Alangotok Inuit observations on climate change = observations des Inuit sur le changement climatique /
Observations by the Inuvialuit of Sachs Harbour support what has long been predicted--that climate change would be felt first in the Polar Regions. This community's way of life is at risk, an urgent warning of the negative impacts of climate change predicted to occur elsewhere in the world. This video documents the impacts of climate change from an Inuvialuit perspective. On Banks Island in Canada's High Arctic, the residents of Sachs Harbour have witnessed dramatic changes to their landscape and their way of life. Exotic insects, fish and birds have arrived; the sea ice is thinner and farther from the community, carrying with it the seals upon which the people depend for food; the permafrost is melting, causing the foundations of the community's buildings to shift and an inland lake to drain into the ocean. In the fall, storms have become frequent and severe, making boating difficult. Thunder and lightning have been seen for the first time.

Simple nature : a short film about physics and life in the universe with Dr. Leonard Susskind /
In Simple Nature, world famous physicist Dr. Leonard Susskind introduces The Anthropic Principle in an entertaining, accessible and informative way. Proposed in the 1970's, The Anthropic Principle attempts to explain how the physics of the universe may be perfectly tuned for life to evolve. Any small tweak in gravity or quantum mechanics would make all matter, planets, stars and life-forms impossible, yet it all is in perfect working order. Why? The Anthropic Principle poses a simple yet plausible explanation, and is at the heart of a growing debate in the world of physics, philosophy and religion. Is it the answer to the "why" of the universe, or does it ignore the traditional methodology of physics and science? In the age of the Large Hadron Collider and breathtaking scientific exploration of atomic particles, physics may be about to revolutionize our view of humankind's place in the universe. Shot on 16 MM film, Simple Nature is illustrated with animated graphics, visuals and music. A good discussion starter to explore the Anthropic Principle in physics, philosophy, religious studies, cosmology and astronomy classes.--Back cover.

Partnering with ranchers, scientists, government agencies, and schools, this remarkable effort led to the restoration of 20 miles of habitat for the endangered California freshwater shrimp in the Stemple Creek watershed of Sonoma and Marin counties. In the process it galvanized the local community and led to significant educational innovations by connecting classrooms with their local watershed. The STRAW Project serves as testimony to the importance of empowering children, which in turn transforms us all.

Six million and one
"Joseph Fisher's memoir was discovered only after his death. His children refused to confront it, except for David, the filmmaker, for whom it became a compass for a long journey. When he found it unbearable to be alone in the wake of his father's survival story and his struggle not to lose his sanity, David persuaded his siblings to join him in the hope that this would also contribute to releasing tensions and making them as close as they used to be. They, for their part, couldn't understand why anyone should want to dig into the past instead of enjoying life in the present. In the dark depths of the B8 Bergkristall tunnels, part of the Austrian KZ Gusen II concentration camp, where their father had slaved during the Holocaust, illuminated only by flashlights, the Fishers seek meaning in their personal and family histories. As their deepest pains are exposed, they find themselves crying and laughing, in bitter-sweet scenes that give this personal film a rare sense of intimacy." --Wikipedia.

Sŏul kichʻa
"Today, there are an estimated 250,000 North Korean refugees living underground in China. They escaped a food crisis and other persecutions at home that have claimed the lives of approximately 3 million in the past 10 years. The Chinese Government -- in direct violation of international laws to which it's a party -- systematically arrests and forcibly repatriates hundreds of these refugees each month. Defecting from North Korea is a capital offense, and repatriated refugees face human rights abuses ranging from concentration camps and torture to forced abortion and summary executions. For a lucky few refugees, however, there is hope. A group of multinational activists has taken it upon themselves to create an Underground Railroad. Via a network of safe houses and escape routes, the activists -- at great personal risk -- help the refugees on daring escapes to freedom over hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of miles of Chinese territory"--Producers.

Similarly reflected are the changes and conflicts in judicial philosophy during those 40 years. Henderson's decisions on affirmative action, environmental protection and prison reform --and the furors that surrounded them --serve as a prism on these changes and what they mean for American society"--California Newsreel website.

Soundbreaking stories from the cutting edge of recorded music /
Music has been a constant in human history, an intermingling of voice and instrument that for all its local variation and increasing sophistication nevertheless endured in more or less the same form for centuries. Then came recording--and music was forever transformed. Soundbreaking, an eight-part event television series, traces this ongoing sonic revolution, and explores the nexus of cutting-edge technology and human artistry that has created the soundtrack of our lives. Featuring more than 160 original interviews with some of the most celebrated recording artists, producers, and music industry pioneers of all time, Soundbreaking charts a century's worth of innovation and experimentation, and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the birth of brand new sounds. From the Beatles' groundbreaking use of multi-track technology to the synthesized stylings of Stevie Wonder, from disco-era drum machines to the modern art of sampling, the series highlights the dynamic tension between the artificial and the natural--between the man-made and the god-given--and explores the way in which that tension has continuously redefined not only what we listen to and how we listen to it, but our very sense of what music is and can be. In the end, Soundbreaking makes us hear the songs we love in a whole new way, and illuminates the sonic alchemy by which the music we listen to becomes a fundamental part of who we are.

Sowing the seeds of justice
"During his extraordinary life, Cruz Reynoso has been one of those rare individuals who are not only shaped by history-they make history. Sowing the Seeds of Justice paints a portrait of Cruz Reynoso, a man who felt the sting of injustice as a child and later, as a lawyer, judge and teacher, fought for over five decades to eradicate discrimination and inequality for all. Sowing the Seeds of Justice begins with Cruz Reynoso's childhood where he was born into a Spanish-speaking farm worker family of eleven children. It shows his struggle to be educated, leading to his graduation from Pomona College in 1953 and from UC Berkeley Law School in 1958. He then became the first Latino Director of California Rural Legal Assistance and later one of the first Latino law professors in the country beginning his academic career at the University of New Mexico Law School. His ascent to the California Supreme Court was a singular achievement, when he was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown as the first Latino justice on that bench. Then in a heated recall campaign whose central issue was the death penalty, Reynoso and two other justices lost their seats. As Vice Chair on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, he provided leadership in the only investigation of voting rights abuses in the 2000 election in Florida. He received the country's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, for his lifelong devotion to public service and today at 78, he continues to teach law at UC Davis Law School and to actively participate in community organizations throughout the state of California."-- Publisher description.

Stealing Africa How much profit is fair? /
In Stealing Africa, director Christoffer Guldbrandsen tells the story of global trade and corruption in Zambia where money and natural resources have ended up in the hands of the wealthy. In a sleepy village in Switzerland, the wealthy residents are receiving more tax revenue than they can use. This is thanks to one resident: Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, whose copper mines in Zambia have done little to help the local people. Zambia has the third largest copper reserves in the world, but 60% of the population live on less than $1 a day and 80% are unemployed. Now a public company, Glencore's predecessor company was founded by Marc Rich, a highly controversial and ruthless American businessman who fled US justice in 1984. Along with its co-investors, the company successfully negotiated a royalty rate of 0.6% with the then Zambian administration - the lowest royalty rate in Africa. These terms, which the now-disgraced former minister for mines involved in the sell-off refused to discuss, leave Zambia out of pocket from the exploitation of its own resources. Stealing Africa shows how neither the law nor morals determine the level of tax that investors pay in Africa - it's more a case of whatever those in business can get away with.

Stories of survival
"Proposing to "kill the Indian and save the man," U.S. Army captain Richard H. Pratt envisioned an educational system that would erase Native American culture and "civilize" the continent's indigenous people. His chosen method? Removing children from Pennsylvania's tribal communities and confining them in barracks-style schools - initially the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, which Pratt founded in 1879. In myopic terms it was a remarkably effective strategy, and Carlisle became a cruel model for institutions all over the U.S. and Canada, including Michigan's Mount Pleasant Indian School. Subjected to emotional, physical, and spiritual abuse, Mount Pleasant students were inevitably alienated from their families, native languages, and tribal religions. This film combines archival materials with present-day interviews to make clear just how inhumane the system was. Survivors from Tlingit, Chippewa, Choctaw, and Lakota communities describe in raw, unflinching terms the impact on First Nations across North America."--Container.

Story of Arctic cowboys
Brothers Aarne and Lasse Aatsinki are cowboys of the Arctic. Quiet but good natured, dare-devilish but humble, rugged but gentle, and exceptionally knowledgeable when it comes to their little slice of wilderness. The brothers, along with their wives and children, live well north of the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland, where they are the leaders of a collective of traditional reindeer herders who manage the last group of wild reindeer in all of Finland. Aatsinki follows the family for the span of one year, quietly observing their seasonal routines and the difficulties and joys of a life so closely tied to the land. Though, on the surface, Aatsinki is the story of a single family, its underlying narrative is one of global consequences and connections. Between their uncanny understanding of the landscape and their reindeer on the one hand, and their heavy reliance on snowmobiles and helicopters on the other, the herders have been categorized as beacons of sustainability and demons of environmentalism-- in essence, poster children for simplicity and technology alike.

Stress portrait of a killer /
A series of laboratory and field experiments demonstrated that stress, long thought to be an exclusively psychological phenomenon, is measurable and dangerous on a physical level. Stanford neurobiologist Dr. Robert Sapolsky studied baboons (Papio) on the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya, measuring their levels of stress hormones caused by social hierarchies. Sapolsky found that the hormones adrenaline and glucocorticoid increase in subordinate troop members, and dominant males had significantly lower blood pressure and heart rates. Also working with nonhuman primate models, Dr. Carol Shively of Wake Forest University examined the arteries of rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta). Corroborating Sapolsky's findings, Shively demonstrated that subordinate macaques have higher plaque levels in arteries, potentially increasing the risk for heart attack. These results were compared to a long-term human study, directed by Sir Michael Marmot of the University of London Medical School. Tracking the health of British Civil Servants, Marmot found that that humans lower in the workplace hierarchy had higher stress levels, and higher rates of sickness. Several researchers took these results a step further, focusing in on how stress affects mothers. Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Epel of the University of California-San Francisco found that chronic high stress in mothers shortened telomeres in chromosomes, potentially producing lifelong consequences. In all of these studies, researchers found that stress and its harmful effects can be reduced by social interaction, and that grooming, playing, and equal social rank in nonhuman primates produced positive health effects.

"In a series of powerful and revealing interviews from inside Israeli prisons, this Wide Angle documentary examines the motives of Palestinian suicide bombers. A recruiter, a bomb builder, and three failed suicide bombers captured by Israeli security forces speak openly of their training, motivation, operational methodology, and profound belief in the idea of entering paradise as a shahid - a martyr for Islam. They discuss their hatred of Jews and Israel, their determination to die, and the personal motivations that have influenced them - including a failed love, a sense of personal revenge, the frustration of living under the Israeli occupation, and envy for the prosperous Israeli lifestyle. In addition, Sari Nusseibeh, president of Al-Quds University, speaks with anchor Mishal Husain." --back cover

Suicide on campus.
Explores the complex world of student mental health that Universities are grappling with post Virginia Tech. Although relatively rare, suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students and by far a bigger issues for Universities than homicide. With 50% of students reporting that they have felt deeply depressed at one point in their college life, picking apart who is really at risk and who is not is far from an easy task. From the experts in student suicide prevention, a mother whose son took his life at school, a lawyer, a college administrator and a psychiatrist, this program explores the issues of confidentiality, when can and should Universities take action and the danger of creating uniform policies that don't look at the specifics of each case. -- container

Suitcase of love and shame
"Tender, erotic, and pathetic, this reconstructed narrative examines the obsession to chronicle the details of an adulterous affair. Suitcase of Love and Shame is a mesmerizing collage woven from 60 hours of reel-to-reel audiotape discovered in a suitcase purchased on eBay. Recorded in the 1960s, a Mid-western woman and her lover become reliant on recording devises to document and memorialize their affair. The film suggestively foregrounds the tape recorder as the confidant, witness, and participant that the couple come to depend on -- always omnipresent, the recorder creates a welcomed ménage-à-trois. The film uses this rare audio example to critically examine a time in the United States when it was exceptional to listen to the contradictory words of those who secretly and exuberantly lived a lie while publicly constraining their passion. Mirroring the compulsion to confess ones indiscretions in today's virtual world and illuminating the impact that new technology -- portable recording devises, had on their lives. Suitcase of Love and Shame aims at a cross-generational consciousness about exhibitionism, privacy and voyeurism. Focusing on the aural and experiential nature of the audio the imagery in the film is restrained -- abstract, evocative and expectant, so that the audience will see with their ears. The listener/viewer is variously located within and outside of the events -- complicit and voyeuristic. The "eavesdropping viewer" compelled despite feeling embarrassed and uncomfortable with the knowledge and access they have been given and the transgressions they imagine they see." --Jane Gillooly website.

Sur la trace de Farley
When Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison, along with their 2-year old son, Zev, and indomitable dog Willow set out to trace the footsteps of one of Canada's most famous writers, Farley Mowat, they mean it literally. Their 5000-kilometre trip - trekking, sailing, portaging and paddling from the prairies to the Maritimes - is captured in this feature-length documentary. They paddle east from Calgary, towards the prairies (the geography of Born Naked and Owls in the Family) and then traverse the same paths that Farley took more than 60 years earlier, which became the foundation for Never Cry Wolf, and People of the Deer. The travelers also get an earful about the long-standing controversy that attends Farley's work. When the family reaches their final destination, Mowat's Nova Scotian summer home, it is, as Karsten says, "An affirmation of what the land and animals had already told us...Stories aren't so much written or created as they are released, expressing what's been there all along."

Survivors.
A plague of global proportions. Anarchy in the streets. The collapse of government and the rule of law--perhaps even the end of civilization itself!--followed by the rise of tyranny and vigilantism. There's heavy stuff happening in Survivors, a British sci-fi drama offered here with all 12 episodes from its first two (and so far only) seasons on five discs. Although it shares a title, original writer (Terry Nation), and several character names with a mid-'70s series, this is apparently not a remake. But the basic idea, detailed in the 90-minute pilot episode, is the same: Present-day Britain has fallen prey to a particularly nasty influenza virus. Within days, it's clear that the disease won't be easily contained; within a couple of weeks, at least 90 percent of the population has died from it, not merely in England but across the planet. As the world as they know it quickly falls apart--no electricity, no communications, no mass transit, no readily available medical care--and those who survived due to immunity start to sort themselves out, the show narrows its focus on one disparate and distinctly multicultural group: Abby (Julie Graham), the de facto leader, who's determined to find the son she's convinced is still alive; Tom (Max Beesley), who was doing time for robbery and murder when the virus struck; Anya (Zoe Tapper), an attractive young doctor; Greg (Peterson Joseph), a would-be loner whose life had already been falling apart; Al (Phillip Rhys), a rich, lazy ne'er do well; and Najid, a devout, 11-year-old Muslim. The remaining episodes follow this core bunch as they cope with their strange new world--a world in which, as Tom puts it, "we make our own law now."
