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.)

Killing us softly 4

In this new, highly anticipated update of her pioneering Killing Us Softly series, the first in more than a decade, Jean Kilbourne takes a fresh look at how advertising traffics in distorted and destructive ideals of femininity. The film marshals a range of new print and television advertisements to lay bare a stunning pattern of damaging gender stereotypes -- images and messages that too often reinforce unrealistic, and unhealthy, perceptions of beauty, perfection, and sexuality. By bringing Kilbourne's groundbreaking analysis up to date, Killing Us Softly 4 stands to challenge a new generation of students to take advertising seriously, and to think critically about popular culture and its relationship to sexism, eating disorders, and gender violence.
