"Wars of the future will be fought over water, as they are today over oil, as the source of all life enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling fresh water supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. Will ours too?"--Container.

Red Moon: Menstruation, Culture & the Politics of Gender

Loading...
"With humor and refreshing candor, Fabianova's Red Moon provides a fascinating, often ironic, take on the absurd and frequently dangerous cultural stigmas and superstitions surrounding women's menstruation. As educational as it is liberating, the film functions as both a myth-busting overview of the realities of menstruation, and a piercing cultural analysis of the ways in which struggles over meaning and power have played out through history on the terrain of women's bodies. Ideal for use in women's studies and health courses, as well as classes in anthropology, sociology, and cultural studies"--Container.

10th Anniversary of the Euro

Loading...
On 1 January 2009, the euro will be ten years old. Like the process of European integration as a whole, Economic and Monetary Union was a simultaneously visionary yet pragmatic project. A major step towards fulfilling the ideal of an "ever closer union" among the peoples of Europe, it was achieved through close co-ordination and convergence of economic policies within the EU, and careful technical preparations. How did it all happen? What obstacles had to be overcome? How was the € symbol chosen and how were the designs of the coins and banknotes selected? Who organised the biggest cash changeover in history? These are some of the questions addressed in this unique 26-minute documentary. It also shows how, after ten years, Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) has brought significant [...]
