Dial History

Loading...
A powerful look at the history of plane hijackings. "Romantic" skyjackers fought their revolutions and won airtime on the passenger planes of the 1960's and 70's. However, by the 1990's the situation had changed and the colorful characters were replaced on our screens by stories of anonymous bombs in suitcases. Combines archival news footage of hijackings with an array of enticing images, from the surreal to the ordinary.

The Specialist: Portrait of a Modern Criminal

Loading...
Lt. Colonel SS, Adolf Eichmann was responsible for the expulsion of Jews, Slovenians, and Gypsies from the Reich between 1938 and 1941, and later, their deportation from Europe to the death camps. Hiding in Argentina, he was captured by the Israeli secret service in 1960. His trial took place in Jerusalem the following year and was the first public event ever recorded on video. This stresses the contrast between monstrosity of the crime and the mediocrity of the man.

Seoul Train

Loading...
"Today, there are an estimated 250,000 North Korean refugees living underground in China. They escaped a food crisis and other persecutions at home that have claimed the lives of approximately 3 million in the past 10 years. The Chinese Government -- in direct violation of international laws to which it's a party -- systematically arrests and forcibly repatriates hundreds of these refugees each month. Defecting from North Korea is a capital offense, and repatriated refugees face human rights abuses ranging from concentration camps and torture to forced abortion and summary executions. For a lucky few refugees, however, there is hope. A group of multinational activists has taken it upon themselves to create an Underground Railroad. Via a network of safe houses and escape routes, the a [...]

Picasso and Dance

Loading...
Between 1917 and 1962, Picasso was involved in creating the designs for nine ballets. Le Train Bleu (The Blue Train) dates from 1924 and Le Tricorne (The Three-Cornered Hat) from 1919. These two historic ballets, created originally by Sergei Diaghilev, have been revived by the Paris Opera Ballet. Le Train Bleu is an operetta dansé of a chic and flippant society. Jean Cocteau, who wrote the scenario, mockingly celebrates the cult of open air life, fine bodies and sport. The dances are inspired by golf, tennis, swimming and acrobatics. Le Tricorne is Spanish from start to finish. Picasso, a native of Andalusia, created sets, costumes, and a stage curtain, which evokes the atmosphere of the ballet by means of a typically Spanish scene. The story, told with humour and warmth, is of a mil [...]

Blue End

Loading...
Joseph Paul Jernigan was 39 years old when he was executed in Hunstville, Texas, in 1993. Ten minutes after the lethal injection, he was handed over to scientists, transported to Denver, frozen in blue gelatin and, over a period of four months, photographed as he was planned off, millimeter-by-millimeter. He would be reborn on the Internet as the "visible man" -- the first completely digitized human being. This worldwide, digitally distributed Visible Human Project is the result of a unique interaction between science and justice.
