Winter soldier

Winter soldierLoading Vietnam veterans speak about atrocities committed upon Vietnamese soldiers and civilians during their time in the U.S. armed forces in Vietnam. Through testimony given at the Winter Soldier Investigation held by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War in 1971, press conferences, and interviews with individual participants, the film graphically portrays the effect of U.S. government policy and practice, which turned soldiers into animals bent on destruction and Vietnamese into "gooks"--Non-human "targets" for murder, rape, and mutilation. The veterans struggle to come to terms with the devastation they caused so that others will not make the same mistake again., Home use only.

Deported

DeportedLoading Through the portraits and interviews of four deportees in Haiti and their families in North America, DEPORTED presents the tragedy of broken lives, forced separation from American children and spouses, and alienation and stigmatization endured in a country they don't know and don't understand, a country that most of them left at a very early age. Since 1996, the United States has implemented a policy of repatriation of all foreign residents who have been convicted of crimes. Every two weeks, about 50 Haitian nationals are deported from the United States; 40 percent are convicted legal residents who completed their jail sentence in America. To a lesser extent, Canada applies a similar policy. DEPORTED, winner of Best Documentary Award at the Vues D'Afrique International Film Festival, [...]

The Electric Valley

The Electric ValleyLoading Tennessee Valley Authority -- TVA -- was a project like no other, and after more than a half-century, continues to shape life in the South. The Electric Valley is the first independent film to tell the story of TVA, a tale of one of the most interesting, controversial federal agencies ever created. In 1933 TVA was given the broadest possible mission: to tame the forces of nature, create cheap energy, and produce a lasting prosperity in the Depression-wracked Tennessee Valley, a region the size of Great Britain. For better or worse, it touched peoples' lives in innumerable ways. The film is both political parable and human drama, a narrative journey through fifty years of American history with this controversial institution as its focus.
