- Age of consequences
- "Investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis -- and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict. Whether a long-term vulnerability or sudden shock, the film unpacks how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather, and sea-level rise function as 'accelerants of instability' and 'catalysts for conflict' in volatile regions of the world. These Pentagon insiders make the compelling case that if we go on with business as usual, the consequences of climate change -- waves of refugees, failed states, terrorism -- will continue to grow in scale and frequency, with grave implications for peace and security in the 21st century. The film's unnerving assessment is by no means reason for fatalism -- but instead a call to action to rethink how we use and produce energy."--Tugg website.

- Angry white men American masculinity in the age of Trump /
- "In this fascinating film adaptation of his acclaimed book 'Angry White Men,' sociologist Michael Kimmel offers a clear-eyed look at why so many white American male voters are full of anger and hell-bent on smashing the political order. Drawing on hundreds of hours spent in the company of a range of self-identified 'angry white men'--from unemployed workers to men's rights activists to all-out white supremacists--Kimmel paints a picture of white men adrift and in the grips of a collective state of rage over the seismic economic, cultural, and political shifts that have been transforming the American social landscape over the past few decades."--Film website: http://store.grasshopperfilm.com/angry-white-men.html.
