Tashi's turbine a film by Amitabh Raj Joshi.
"Tashi Bista dreams to install a makeshift wind turbine in Namdok, a remote village nestled high amongst the Himalayas of Nepal. Battered by wind and cold, Namdok, has been in darkness for centuries. Wearing Ray Bans to shield his eyes from the dust and just a leather jacket to insulate him from the bitter cold he surveys the village. Tashi Bista, the sturdiest activist in town provides a fresh perspective to alternative energy. He grew up in this region without electrical power. He is determined to bring lights to Namdok in an effort to prove himself to the skeptical village community. Tashi's Turbine is a character driven film that shows the impact of one man's dream for light, in a village waiting for development. Namdok is located in the northern region of Upper Mustang, Nepal. This land was restricted to foreigners until the early 1990s. The remoteness of the region and the sustained neglect by the government has deprived the village communities with infrastructure necessities such as electrical power. Tashi's Turbine brings a beacon of hope to the village of Namdok. Tashi arrives during a pivotal moment in the lives of Pema Gurung, Chimi Lhamo, and Pemba Tashi. Pema is a young girl struggling to learn with limited schooling. Chimi is a widow with one son trying to maintain a house without the help of her husband. Pemba is a middle aged man building a stone wall around his shrinking family. Each family is in need of light, even if it starts with just one bulb." --Distrubitor's website.

Teached Vol. 1
The path to prison: The U.S. now bears the ominous title as the planet's most prolific jailer. The vast majority of our inmates are illiterate, and an inordinate number are people of color. One young man's story helps explain how so many capable and intelligent youth, especially African-American youth, end up behind bars. The blame game: teachers speak out: The discourse around education reform, especially on issues involving teachers, lacks nuance, thoughtfulness and often common sense. Simplistic "pro-" and "anti-" teacher rhetoric is distracting from efforts to improve teacher quality, especially in schools serving urban, minority children. Unchartered territory: Charter school founders are the pioneers of education reform, staking their claim by opening new schools in historically underserved communities. But years after the first charter shool opened its doors, these independently-operated publicly-funded schools are, as a group, not performing much better than traditional public schools. Was the charter formula wrong, and what can the best charter school leaders teach the rest?

They are we
They are we is the story of a remarkable reunion that takes place 170 or so years after a family was driven apart by the ravages of the transatlantic slave trade. In Central Cuba, proud members of the Gangá-Longobá, a small Afro-Cuban ethnic group, have kept their unique heritage alive. Incredibly, through decades of brutal enslavement, independence wars, and then the denying of all religions after the revolution, they have retained a collection of distinct songs and dances that one of their ancestors brought from Africa as a slave. Each December 17th they still perform them at the San Lazaro ceremony. After a chance discovery while working in West Africa, director Emma Christopher spent two years showing a film of the Gangá-Longobá songs and dances to several thousand people across Sierra Leone. Eventually, in an isolated village with no road access, one man looked at another in joy and wonder as he watched a recording of the Gangá-Longobá songs and said, "They are we!" Then the villagers joined in with others of the Gangá-Longobá songs, still recognizing them clearly despite all the years of separation. Returning to Cuba, Emma showed her findings to the Gangá-Longobá. "We are not so alone anymore", said one of their number, woodcarver and artist Alfredo Duquesne. Later he would say that knowing where he came from "is divine". In early 2013, after the law changed allowing them to freely leave Cuba, a trip was at last made to visit Sierra Leone. It turned into a remarkable celebration, a rare recognition of the tenacity and resolve of one young girl who once made the awful journey from Africa to Cuba, but never let her memories of home die. They are we tells the story of the Gangá-Longobá and of the village their ancestor called home. It is the story of how, just very occasionally, a family separated by the slave trade can reunite for the good of all.

Thread of karma
"In 1991, filmmakers Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam made 'The Reincarnation of Khensur Rinpoche', which followed the search of a Tibetan monk, named Choenzey, to find the reincarnation of his recently deceased master, Khensur Rinpoche, and documented Choenzey's eventual discovery of a four-year-old boy recognized by the Dalai Lama to be the one. Without sentimentality, the film captured the moving relationship that developed between the erstwhile disciple and his young master. Sixteen years later, the directors revisit the reincarnation at Drepung Monastery in South India, where he has been brought up within the age-old traditions of Tibetan Buddhist monastic life. He is now 20 years old, and his devoted attendant, Choenzey, continues to take care of him. His spiritual teacher is Geshe Wangchen, one of the most respected masters in the monastery, who was himself a disciple of Khensur Rinpoche. 'The Thread of Karma' offers an intimate look at the life of the young lama as he aspires to live up to the reputation of his former incarnation. It also explores his moving relationship with the two people closest to him, his attendant and his spiritual master, both of whom were connected to him in his previous life. By focusing on these ties that cut across lifetimes, the film paints a touching and insightful portrait of the Rinpoche even as it demystifies the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of reincarnation" -- http://www.berkeleymedia.com/catalog/berkeleymedia.

Thread of yoga
A baba is doing austerities. He has been sitting in the same circle of fire for a month, the scorching himalayan sun beating on him day after day. Yogis ponder the meaning of life as dead bodies rot in The Ganges. Ether sticks to their mortal remains...The temperature is a boiling 120 degrees Farenheit. It is just another day. The people of the land perform asanas (physical postures of hatha yoga), pranayama (breathing) and kriyas (acts of internal purification of organs). Children play in the water. Gurus give satsangs (lectures) as the elephants give their blessings, knowing the world was made too small for them. And then, as the sacred India dives deeper and deeper into the innermost recesses of the mind, it forces all to realize that there is nothing, this is the end!?! The world of manifestations is just an illusion. Patanjali starts his "Yoga Sutra" with the aphorism: "Yoga Chittam Vritti Nirodha" (I,2). Yoga is the complete cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. To interpret the depth of this abstract concept, Wils interviewed Ramesh Balsekar, Sraddhalu Ranade, Gurudev Chitrabhanu, Dadi Janki and several other yogis, all of them having published books on yoga. He included rare satsangs of Swami Sivananda, founder of The Divine Life Society in 1932 at Rishikesh, Himalayas and author of over 300 books on yoga, Vedanta, health, self-realization and higher consciousness. This film will also shed light on ashtanga, meditation, samadhi and the lives of sadhus, swamis and sannyasins at Rishikesh, Benares, Tiruvannamalai and other holy places, ashrams (Ramana Maharshi ashram to name one) and yoga institutes. Shot during 6 months in "cinema verité" style on 40 locations, the documentary renders the true spirit of India with cremations on the banks of The Ganges, yoga on a mallakhamb or a rope. Thread of Yoga: a rare field recording on sacred India! This is a 2 disc set: "Thread of Yoga", 88 minutes. Bonus DVD: "Shadow of a Thread", 83 minutes, full-length feature with all new material.

Through a lens darkly black photographers and the emergence of a people /
Inspired by Deborah Willis's book, Reflections in Black, Through a Lens Darkly, casts a broad net that begins with filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris's family album. It considers the difference between black photographers who use the camera to define themselves, their people, and their culture and some white photographers who, historically, have demeaned African-Americans through racist imagery. The film embraces both historical material (African-Americans who were slaves, who fought in the Civil War, were victims of lynchings, or were pivotal in the Civil Rights Movement) and contemporary images made by such luminaries as Roy DeCarava, Gordon Parks, and Carrie Mae Weems. The film is a cornucopia of Americana that reveals deeply disturbing truths about the history of race relations while expressing joyous, life-affirming sentiments about the ability of artists and amateurs alike to assert their identity through the photographic lens.

Director Gil Cardinal reveals the Haisla's 1991 discovery of the pole in a Stockholm museum, where it is considered state property by the Swedish government. Cardinal skillfully layers compelling interviews, striking imagery and rare footage of master carvers as they create a replica pole. The Haisla have fulfilled a promise to the museum to replace the original totem. Now, having honoured their end of the bargain, they await the return of the G'psgolox pole.

Tough guise 2 : violence, manhood & American culture /
In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed Tough Guise, pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and US political culture. Tough Guise 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men - and women - to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior.

Trap what happened to our dream of freedom?
What does freedom actually mean today? This series of films argues that our freedom is a limited kind of freedom. It shows how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today's idea of freedom. This model was apparently derived from techniques developed by nuclear strategists during the Cold War. Genetic biologists, anthropologists, radical psychiatrists and free market economists took it further until it became a new system of invisible control.

Turbulent waters
This documentary takes us below the deck to meet the men who toil at the grimy heart of the global economy. Whether it's petroleum, wheat or computer keyboards, over 90% of international trade moves by sea. Yet the men whose labour is the lifeblood of world trade reap few benefits. Every year over 2500 seafarers die on the job. Many work in dangerous conditions on ships flying flags of convenience, a common practice whereby companies register vessels in countries with low labour standards and corporate taxes. Seafarers who speak out are often blacklisted, which can end their careers. This hard-hitting documentary exposes the reality of international shipping, while giving a voice to the men who risk their lives to bring us the goods we need.--Container.

Long before Jacques Cousteau and Richard Attenborough, a Frenchman named Jean Painlevé made documentaries that captured the natural world in a unique manner.

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.

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.
