Sick Around the World

"Four in five Americans say the U.S. health-care system needs "fundamental" change.

Reid examines first-hand the health-care systems of other advanced capitalist democracies -- UK, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan -- to see what tried and tested ideas might help us reform our broken health-care system."--Frontline web site.

Confessions of a German Soldier [electronic resource]: Between the Cross and the Swastika

During World War II, a decorated German infantry officer named Dietrich Karsten was killed in action on the Eastern Front. More than six decades later, Dietrich's granddaughter Lena Karsten was handed a stack of his letters - and a mystery: how could her grandfather, who she had known of only as a soldier who died in 1942, also have been a Protestant pastor in the 1930s who had vigorously resisted Nazism at the risk of his own life? This film follows Lena and British historian Gabriel Fawcett as they travel into rural Russia in search of her grandfather's grave and an answer to that disturbing question.

Helvetica

Loading...
A documentary about a typeface? When said typeface is a ubiquitous piece of graphic design, yes. Helvetica--a sans-serif typeface developed in 1957 at the Haas Foundry in Munchenstein, Switzerland--has partisans and detractors, a great number of them graphic designers and theorists, who express their opinions on the famous font. It is seen as neutral and efficient, concise yet inexpressive, purposeful yet not caustic, utilitarian and unembellished, or as frustratingly familiar, perfectly subliminal, or as the typeface of socialism. From storefronts, street signs, product packaging, government forms, and advertisements, it is almost guaranteed that after viewing, you will be scanning the world examining Helvetica's continuing impact.
