Do Not Resist

Loading
"An urgent and powerful exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States. Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, DO NOT RESIST offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future. The Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary puts viewers in the center of the action -- from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team and inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of "righteous violence" to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of military equipment in small-town police departments -- before exploring where controversial new technologies, including predictive policing algorithms, could lead the field next."--

The Painting

Loading
In this delightful parable, a kingdom within a painting is divided into three castes: the impeccably colored Alldunns, the incomplete Halfies, and the barley outlined Sketchies, who are treated as outcasts. Chastised for her forbidden love of the dashing Ramo, Claire runs away into the cursed forest. Ramo and her best friend Lola journey after her, crossing over the boundaries of the forest only to arrive at the very edge of the painting where they tumble through the canvas and into the painter's studio. The abandoned workspace is strewn with paintings, watch containing its own vividly animated world and characters and in a feast for both eyes and the imagination, they explore picture after picture in a quest to discover just what the painter has in mind for his creations.

Place Without People

A Place Without People: Tanzania tells the story of the eviction of the indigenous people from their lands in Tanzania, to make way for the creation of the world's most famous nature reserves. In Tanzania, one of the poorest nations in the world, the government, the tourist industry and conservation organizations have advanced the idea that Africans are intruders into what was once a pristine Garden of Eden. The film describes how before World War II the land of the Maasai was seized by British colonialists to set aside for their own sport -- hunting.
