Ask Not

Loading...
ASK NOT exposes the tangled political battles that led to DADT and examines the societal shifts that have occurred since its 1993 passage. Since the law's implementation, more than 12,000 personnel have been discharged including linguists and others whose skills are critical to military operations. Current and veteran gay soldiers reveal how the policy has affected them during their tours of duty as they struggle to maintain a double life, uncertain of whom they can trust. The film also explores how gay veterans and youth organizers are turning to activism to challenge DADT. More than 15 years after DADT was passed, scores of retired and active military officers support doing away with it. The film looks at the history of "don't ask, don't tell" and as attitudes change, examines its [...]

Africa, Search for Common Ground

Loading...
"This 8-part television series reveals Africa as seen by Africans. Each program explores conflicts across the continent, and how they are being resolved. With its uniquely African identity, flavour, and feel, viewers go behind the headlines. Each story is told by local people; the "players" in the conflict whose powerful narrative sheds new light on issues of concern to the entire continent. Each episode demonstrates that good storytelling does not have to glorify conflict for its own sake. That a search for agreement can be as dramatic as a soap opera. At the same time, the programs undermine the view that Africans are incapable of solving their own problems." -- Search for Common Ground website.

Monks [electronic resource]: Keepers of Knowledge

As hubs of spiritual and scientific activity, monasteries were the information centers of the Middle Ages. This program explores the varying missions-and the often-cloaked thoughts and feelings-of the medieval monk, within the larger context of the era's highly regulated and intrigue-ridden religious life. With a focus on the interaction of European and Arab cultures, as well as the importance of libraries and pre-Christian texts, the program's discussions of medicine, mathematics, astronomy, law, and philosophy portray monastic life as full and surprisingly worldly: not only the zenith of introspection, but an arena of passion, exploration, and power struggle. Portions are in other languages with English subtitles.

Knights and Nobles [electronic resource]

This program surveys the courtly culture of armored knights, their duties and privileges, and their significance in the religious and political conflicts of the Middle Ages. Presided over by royalty, knights formed an elite caste with a code of honor steeped in the arts of hand-to-hand combat and chivalry. Knights and Nobles examines their everyday customs, coats of arms, weaponry, and-with the help of an elaborate historical reconstruction-the castles which sheltered them between campaigns. The program climaxes with the Battle of Crecy in 1346, which initiated infantry-style warfare and effectively ended knighthood in the military sense. Portions are in other languages with English subtitles.

Peasants, Serfs, and Servitude [electronic resource]

During the Middle Ages, most of Europe's inhabitants were illiterate and lived in the shadow of the wealthy; knowledge of peasant culture is therefore limited. This program addresses the historical lack of firsthand written materials, viewing serfs and servants through the eyewitness accounts of a fictitious traveler. Although a peasant farmer's daily existence was indeed oppressive, defined by taxation and compulsory military service to the ruling noble, the program details innovations of the era-including the horse-drawn iron plough and the three-field planting system-amounting to an agricultural revolution that set the stage for a heavily populated, modern Europe. Portions are in other languages with English subtitles.
