How to die in Oregon

How to die in OregonLoading In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. Since then, more than 500 Oregonians have taken their mortality into their own hands. Filmmaker Peter Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether--and when--to end their lives by lethal overdose. Richardson examines both sides of the complex, emotionally charged issue. What emerges is a life-affirming, staggeringly powerful portrait of what it means to die with dignity.

Treyf

TreyfLoading "Treyf" means "unkosher" in Yiddish and is sometimes used to label people with nontraditional ways of life, such as lesbians. This documentary is by and about two Jewish lesbians in New York who met and fell in love at a Passover seder. The filmmakers examine the impact of their Jewish identities on their lives through personal narration, real and imagined educational films, and imagery. Over the course of the film, they weave their way from New York to Jerusalem in pursuit of a progressive, secular Jewish identity that draws from their childhood reminiscences as much as from their contemporary queer lives.

Through a lens darkly : black photographers and the emergence of a people

Through a lens darklyLoading 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 [...]

The spirit moves. Part 1, Jazz dance from the turn of the century to 1950 : a history of Black social dance on film, 1900-1986

The spirit movesLoading Mura Dehn was a Russian-born dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker. Her pioneering work in documenting the various styles of American black social dance is found in "The Spirit Moves," a rare and vital social document. This valuable video archive of the evolution of black dance styles features dancers renowned for their exploits at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem during the 1940s. The dancers also recreate song and dance routines of the 1920s and 30s. The dances of the 40s chronicle the prewar optimism of black Americans, while the pessimism and disaffiliation of postwar be-bop styles illustrate its elimination. Essential for dance and music research, this film documents the vital contribution of African American dance to the Jazz scene, and thus, to America's cultural heritage.
