Vermont speaks for itself a multi-media presentation with tapes, slides, interviews with Vermonters and original country music /
Vermont Speaks For Itself is a 1973 social justice multi-media documentary project produced and distributed by the Vermont Media Collective in the mid-1970s. The documentary uses extensive interviews with Vermonters to illustrate the economic and social conditions faced by Vermont's low-income and working people during that period, backed with additional narration that highlights research and proposes solutions. The film depicts the economic and personal impact of the decline of the family farm and local business for many Vermonters, caused by large development corporations and real estate investors. A traditional string band sound track recorded by local performers accentuates the project. This film was originally produced as a slide-show accompanied by a separate audio track. In 1976, the slide show was transferred to the 16mm BW film format. In 2016, the film was digitized and released on DVD.

Vessel
Vessel begins with a young doctor who lived by the sea, and an unlikely idea. Rebecca Gomperts, horrified by the realities created by anti-abortion law around the world, felt compelled to challenge this. Her method: to provide abortions on a ship in offshore waters. Her project, Women on Waves, begins as flawed spectacle, a media frenzy, faced with governmental, religious, and military blockades. But with each setback comes a more refined mission, until Rebecca has the revelation that she can use new technologies to bypass law -- and train women to give themselves safe abortions using WHO-sanctioned protocols with pills. We witness the creation of an underground network of emboldened, informed activists, working at the cutting edge of global reproductive rights, who trust women to handle abortion themselves. Vessel is Rebecca's story: one of a woman who heard and answered a calling, and transformed a wildly improbable idea into a global movement.

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.

Violence, media, and the crisis in masculinity

The United States is obsessed with virginity from the media to schools to government agencies. The Purity Myth is an important and timely critique of about why this is so, and why it's problematic for girls and women.

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.
