The Black Panthers : vanguard of the revolution

The Black PanthersLoading "The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution is the first feature length documentary to explore the Black Panther Party, its significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening for black people, and the painful lessons wrought when a movement derails. Master documentarian Stanley Nelson goes straight to the source, weaving a treasure trove of rare archival footage with the voices of the people who were there: police, FBI informants, journalists, white supporters and detractors, and Black Panthers who remained loyal to the party and those who left it. It's an essential history and a vibrant chronicle of this pivotal movement that birthed a new revolutionary culture in America." -- Container.

Birth of a nation, 4/29/1992

Birth of a nation, 4/29/1992Loading "After criminal charges were dropped against four Los Angeles police officers accused in the brutal beating of Rodney King, L.A. erupted. This video offers a rare view of the rebellion that began within minutes of the verdict. It is a view from the street, shot at the epicenter of the rebellion where residents express their outrage, businesses burn, and neighbors are depicted as criminals on the nightly news; gangs call a city-wide truce while local rappers become prophets. With the hand-held immediacy of combat coverage, the video follows events over several days, shows conditions leading up to the verdict, the rebellion, and ultimately the arrest of black youth accused of rioting and violence as the chief of police and news cameras look on."

This changes everything

This changes everythingLoading "Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Inspired by Naomi Klein's international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein's narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something rad [...]

Broken on all sides : race, mass incarceration & new visions for criminal justice in the U.S.

Broken on all sidesLoading "More African Americans are under 'correctional' (prison) control today than were enslaved in 1850. Why? The movie explores mass incarceration across the U.S. and the intersection of race, poverty, and the criminal justice and penal systems. It centers around Michelle Alexander's theory in her groundbreaking book, 'The New Jim Crow:' through the rise of the drug war and tough on crime policies, because discretion within the system allows for targeting people of color at disproportionately high rates, mass incarceration is the new caste system in America. The movie dissects the War on Drugs and 'tough on crime' movement, illustrates how the emerging Occupy movement offers hope for change, and explores possible reforms and solutions to ending mass incarceration and this new racial cast [...]
