Grey Zone

Canada's border with the United States is well defined almost everywhere across the country. There are a few places where that line is in dispute and one of them is in the waters between Grand Manan, New Brunswick and the state of Maine. It's known as the grey zone. The grey zone is not a large area but it is rich in lobster. Canadian and American fishermen each want to fish there but the dispute has led to tensions on both sides of the border.

Hannah's Story

This engaging documentary gives new meaning to the term role model. Normally we think of children learning from their elders, but here is the story of an 11-year-old girl who is already inspiring adults to make a difference. When she was just 5, Hannah Taylor spotted her first homeless person in the back alleys of Winnipeg. This experience not only troubled her but it drove her to do nothing less than change the world, leading to the establishment of the impressive Ladybug Foundation. Under Hannah*s leadership, that charity has raised over a million dollars, literally making change for those lacking life*s basic needs. As this absorbing documentary shows, Hannah insists on being seen as normal, but clearly she possesses an extraordinary can-do attitude. Her message is disarmingly straightforward: "share a little of what you have and always care about others." Whether it's organizing Big Boss lunches, speaking to students or to a prime minister, Hannah's capacity to help others is huge, unflagging, and, ultimately, humbling. (2007 ; 29 min.)

If The Weather Permits

In the vastness of the North, on the edge of the Arctic Ocean, lies the village of Kangirsujuaq, in Nunavik. Here, tradition and modernity intersect on a daily basis. Teenagers lap up "southern" culture and play golf on the tundra. The elders, many of them former nomads and hunters, are trying to get used to the strange feeling of staying put. Elisapie Isaac, a young filmmaker born in Nunavik, decides to return to her roots on this breathtaking land. To bridge the gap between the young and old, she lets Naalak, an elder, and Danny, a young policeman from Kangirsujuaq, tell us what they think. She also speaks to her grandfather, now dead, and confides in him her hopes and fears. Above all, she askd the fundamental question: Can Inuit culture survive in the modern world? In English and Inuktitut, with subtitles. (2003 ; 28 min.)

In Other Words

Name-calling and cruel language hurt, say the teens who speak in this documentary video. Homophobic language is a common verbal put-down among young people, but many adults feel uncomfortable responding. In Other Words speaks directly to teens and offers a valuable tool to teachers, counselors and community youth leaders who want to explore the homophobic language heard in schools and other youth hangouts--the words themselves, their origins, how young people feel about them, and how to overcome the hurt and anger they cause. Moving interviews with gay, lesbian and transgender teens provide first-hand accounts. Weaving together slang, music media images and dictionary definitions, the film examines how language shapes attitude. The video is designed to foster change, to ensure that schools are safe places where youth can learn in a climate of respect. Teacher preview recommended. (2001 ; 27 min.)
