1913 : Seeds of Conflict
Call Number: DS119.7 .N56 2015
"This documentary examines a critical yet overlooked moment of transformation in Palestine, long before the Balfour Declaration and British Mandate period usually considered the matchstick for today's ongoing struggles. It was a time when identities were fluid and few Arabs or Jews living there could imagine the conflict that would engulf their region for the next century."
1916, the Irish Rebellion
Call Number: DA962 .A12 2016
"On Easter Monday 1916, a small group of Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire. Although defeated militarily, the men and women of the Easter Rising would soon win a moral victory, with their actions leading to the creation of an independent Irish State and contributing to the eventual disintegration of the British Empire. They have inspired countless freedom struggles throughout the world."
The American Revolution, 1765-1783
Call Number: E208 .A437 2015
"This collection of acclaimed landmark documentaries and meticulously researched memorabilia celebrates that tumultuous period during the late eighteenth century when we dared to transform ourselves from the subjects of a king to citizens of a free and independent nation."
Call Number: DG68.1 .T56 2016
"How did the Romans produce some of the most impressive gladiatorial games ever seen in Europe? How did the Colosseum's mysterious roof really work? And how does the mighty Colosseum compare to the popular sports venues of the 21st century? "
The Day the '60s Died
Call Number: LD4191.O72 D39 2015
"The Day the 60s Died chronicles May 1970, the month in which four students were shot dead at Kent State University. The mayhem that followed has been called the most divisive moment in American history since the Civil War."
Dirt & Deeds in Mississippi
Call Number: E185.93.M6 D57 2015
"... reveals the largely unknown and pivotal role played by Black landowning families in the deep South who controlled over a million acres of lands in the 1960's. They were prepared to put their land and their lives on the line in the fight for racial equality and the right to vote in Americas most segregated and violently racist state."
The Kennedy Films of Robert Drew & Associates
Call Number: E839 .K46 2016 Blu-ray
"In 1960, a filmmaking group was granted direct access to John F. Kennedy, filming him on the campaign trail and eventually in the Oval Office. This resulted in three films of remarkable, behind-closed-doors intimacy, Primary, Adventures on the New Frontier, and Crisis, and, following the president's assassination, the poetic short Faces of November. Collected here are all four of these titles, early exemplars of the movement known as Direct Cinema."
