108. August Light: Wilson’s Creek and the Battle for Missouri

by: Wide Awake Films
Release date: Apr 16, 2010
Run Time: 60 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
In the early morning hours of August 10, 1861, the rolling hillsides of southwest Missouri echoed with the sounds of fierce combat. When the smoke cleared, almost 2,500 men were killed, wounded or missing. Among the dead were Missourians, Kansans, Iowans, Louisianans, Texans, Arkansans, German and Irish immigrants, and a Union general, the first to be killed in the Civil War. The Battle of Wilson’s Creek, the second major battle of the Civil War, and the first west of the Mississippi River, marked the beginning of four years of invading armies and ruthless guerilla warfare in Missouri, from St. Louis to modern-day Kansas City. Told through the experiences of individuals, both civilian and soldier, this story reveals a volatile mix of social and political differences — and a deeply divided population. Using historically accurate re-creations captured in dazzling High Definition, as well as meticulously detailed maps and newly re-discovered archival photographs, this film, three years in the making, presents an unprecedented depiction of the clash between North and South in a battle that helped to determine the fate of Missouri. Special features include over an hour of bonus content a video tour of the Wilson’s Creek Civil War Museum, production stills, archival photos, and Ed Bearss, in top form, touring the Wilson’s Creek battlefield!

109. The Clowns [Blu-ray]

Release date: Oct 18, 2011
Run Time: 92 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)

Read Review
Fellini’s fascination with the circus and the surreal come to a head in one of his final masterpieces, The Clowns. The film reflects Fellini’s childhood obsession with clowns and begins with a young boy watching a circus set up from his bedroom window. Though comical and referred to as a “docu-comedy”, this film explores deeper human conditions such as authority, poverty, humility and arrogance, all of which manifest themselves through the characters of the clowns who vary from the local sex-crazed hobo, a midget nun, to a mutilated Mussolini disciple. Featuring Anita Ekberg, the star of his 1960’s masterpiece, La Dolce Vita and the director himself.

This monumental documentary is the compelling story of Pan American Airways conquest of the Pacific. It contains stunning and never before seen color archival footage of Pan Americans Airways epoch ten year, ten thousand mile conquest of the Pacific Ocean. Our story begins in 1929 with the first plane to be christened a Pan American Clipper by Mrs. Herbert Hoover. She was assisted by Pan Am’s legendary founder Juan Trippe. See aviation pioneers such as Igor Sikorsky and Pan Am’s technical advisor, Charles Lindbergh play integral roles in designing, the Sikorsky S-42. This was the first plane capable of trans-Pacific flight. Next see the first plane to be called the China Clipper, the beautiful Martin M-130. Witness its construction and historic first flight across the Pacific Ocean, piloted by the legendary Captain Musick in 1935. This was the beginning of the Romantic Period of flight. You’ll marvel at the heroic Pan Am construction crews ability to construct island bases on Wake, Midway and Guam. Pan Am Clipper passengers and crews used these island oasises during their trans-Pacific flights. Pan Am struggled to stay financially viable until a plane was designed that could carry both passengers and mail profitably on it’s Pacific routes. The plane that saved Pan Am and changed the world was the Boeing designed Model-314. With the B-314, Pan Am completed it’s conquest of the Pacific and established trans-Pacific service. The B-314 was a magnificent airplane that was instrumental in creating the romantic legend of the China Clipper during America’s Golden Age of Aviation. As part of this grand adventure, you’ll see spectacular aviation footage of the famous seaplanes like the Sikorsky’s S-40 and S-42, the Martin M-130, the Boeing Model-314 and Sikorsky’s last seaplane, the VS-44A. All these planes made aviation history and contributed immeasurably to transoceanic flight. Program time: Approx. 60 minutes.

120. Powaqqatsi [VHS]

by: First Look Home Ente
Release date: Aug 01, 1990
Run Time: 99 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
Powaqqatsi, or “life in transformation,” is the second part of a projected trilogy of experimental documentaries whose titles derive from Hopi compound nouns. The now legendary Koyaanisqatsi, or “life out of balance,” was the first. Naqoyqatsi, or “life in war,” once it obtains funding, will be the third. Powaqqatsi finds director Godfrey Reggio somewhat more directly polemical than before, and his major collaborator, the composer Philip Glass, stretching to embrace world music.

Reggio reuses techniques familiar from the previous film (slow motion, time-lapse, superposition) to dramatize the effects of the so-called First World on the Third: displacement, pollution, alienation. But he spends as much time beautifully depicting what various cultures have lost–cooperative living, a sense of joy in labor, and religious values–as he does confronting viewers with trains, airliners, coal cars, and loneliness. What had been a more or less peaceful, slow-moving, spiritually fulfilling rural existence for these “silent” people (all we hear is music and sound effects) becomes a crowded, suffocating, accelerating industrial urban hell, from Peru to Pakistan. Reggio frames Powaqqatsi with a telling image: the Serra Pelada gold mines, where thousands of men, their clothes and skin imbued with the earth they’re moving, carry wet bags up steep slopes in a Sisyphean effort to provide wealth for their employers. While Glass juxtaposes his strangely joyful music, which includes the voices of South American children, a number of these men carry one of their exhausted comrades out of the pit, his head back and arms outstretched–one more sacrifice to Caesar. Nevertheless, Reggio, a former member of the Christian Brothers, seems to maintain hope for renewal. –Robert Burns Neveldine

Read Review
“Fifty million stars in our galaxy have the potential of supporting life forms capable of traveling to other planets,” says world-renowned authority Erich von Daniken, whose film version of his best- selling book, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, gives stunning visual proof that some form of life from outer space landed on Earth centuries ago. It took five years for von Daniken to document, on film, the physical evidence of visits by galactic travelers who came to Earth. Just what they did here and the influences they left behind is the core of the film. In search of basic truths, the film, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, takes the viewer into the far reaches of underground caves and tombs, and to the tops of desolate mountains on every major continent to show the evidence von Daniken has been collecting. Although this controversial film may provide the answers to age old mysteries, it may be the beginning of an entirely new set of questions. Bonus Features: Scene Selection, Photo Gallery, Bio on Erich von Daniken, Trailer. Specs: DVD5; Dolby Digital Mono; 90 minutes; Color; 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA – G; Year – 1972.

122. History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years

by: Ambrose Video Publishing, Inc
Release date: Mar 01, 2010
Run Time: 360 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
A History of Christianity, a six-part series presented by Diarmaid MacCulloch, an Oxford history professor whose books about Cranmer and the Reformation have been acclaimed as masterpieces. A History Of Christianity will reveal the true origins of Christianity and delve into what it means to be a Christian. Intelligent, thought-provoking and magisterial in its scope the series will uncover how a small Jewish sect that preached humility became the biggest religion in the world. Most Christian histories start with St Paul’s mission to Rome, but Diarmaid MacCulloch argues that the first Christianity stayed much closer to its Middle-Eastern roots. He describes not only the main ideas and personalities of Christian history, its organization and spirituality, but how it has changed politics, sex, and human society. The series includes subjects from Palestine in the first century to India in the third, from Damascus to China in the seventh century and from San Francisco to Korea in the twentieth. MacCulloch is one of the most widely travelled of Christian historians and conveys a sense of place as arrestingly as he does the power of ideas. He presents the development of Christian history differently from any of his predecessors. He shows how, after a semblance of unity in its earliest centuries, the Christian church divided during the next 1400 years into three increasingly distanced parts, of which the western Church was by no means always the most important: he observes that at the end of the first eight centuries of Christian history, Baghdad might have seemed a more likely capital for worldwide Christianity than Rome. This is the first truly global history of Christianity. Diarmaid MacCulloch is one of the world’s leading historians and Professor of History of the Church and Fellow at St. Cross College Oxford. The series is a BBC co-production with the Open University and Jerusalem Productions. Giftbox set of 6 one hour DVDs
