Competitors war at 360 words per minute, hauling around mountains of evidence named "cards" and nearly each debate ends in global nuclear annihilation. In 2005, some 200 squads converged on San Francisco State to compete in the National Championship. The documentary follows four teams, from Michigan State, Harvard, West Georgia, and Berkeley in their quest for the national title. What emerges is not simply the chronicle of the thrill of win and the agony of defeat, but a more disturbing examination into the nature of tournament itself and the American fetish with championships and champions.

Matti da slegare #

Released 7/1/1975

Description: Via the Fresh York Times: "This documentary was distilled from a 3 1/2-hour tv movie Nessuno o Tutti, to create the mission that many inmates actually in mental hospitals should be released without hurt to society, and to their advantage. Both patients -- selected for their ability to talk before a camera -- and sponsors in the community at huge are interviewed to promote the idea of the patients' re-integration into the outside world. Three boys (Paolo, Angelo, and Marco -- a mentally handicapped youth) talk to the interviewers about their own perspectives, and while the success of the mentally handicapped working at one plant is illustrated, the implied excesses of hospitals run by the Catholic Church are also discussed. Filming was not allowed inside those institutions."

We Were German Jews #

Released 10/5/1981

Description: In 1943 Herbert and Lotte Strauss made the courageous decision to escape from Germany and almost certain extermination in a Nazi concentration camp. This is a private acc of their dramatic flight, building a fresh life in the United States, and coming to terms with the Holocaust. "We Were German Jews" grapples with the torment of living with the legacy of the Holocaust. The movie chronicles Herbert and Lotte Strauss' return visit to Germany. They were not trying to assuage any sense of guilt over having survived; they wanted to confront the past by going back to where they had lived before the onslaught that claimed most of their relatives. This understated, very private storyline adds significantly to the body of evidence that explores human behavior in the face of genocide and insists that we remember the past and learn from it.

Lie chang zha sha #

Released 7/17/1985

Description: On the Hunting Ground made by Tian Zhuangzhuang at the invitation of the Inner Mongolia Movie Studio. After living for a month with the Mongolians on the grasslands in preparation for the film, he drastically changed the script given to him by the studio. The original storyline centered around the themes of male dominance and jealousy with a complicated plot; in Tian's film, the narrative element practically disappears. Insofar as a narrative centre exists, it deals with a hunter's transgression of the Mongolian hunting code (laid down by Genghis Khan in the thirteenth century) and his subsequent penance. A semi-documentary--using local herdsmen rather than professional actors--which captures the hunting rituals, rhythms and patterns of everyday life in a Mongolian tribe.

Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth Reviews:

Bill Moyers was given "carte blanche" to interview the brightest person in the world. Another interviewees -- over Moyers long history of interviewing the greatest and brightest -- directed him to Joseph Campbell, who had never been interviewed as such, was legendary in his scholarship in history and as a teacher. These two DVD discs represent just six hours of Moyers' interviews with Mr. Campbell shortly before Joseph Campbell died. Actually preserved for all of us to enjoy.The episodes are:1. The Hero's Adventure: Examines our relationship with heroism; heroism as an integral part of all globe cultures. Campbell challenges us to see the heroic adventure on our lives.2. The Message of the Myth: Campbell compares creation stories (Genesis, another religions). And how we are stuck with myths that may not meet our needs.3. The First Storytellers: Discusses the importance of accepting death as rebirth as in the storyline of Christ or the myth of the buffalo, the rite of passage in primitive societies, the role of mystical Shamans, and the decline of ritual in today's society.4. Sacrifice and Bliss: Examines the role of sacrifice in myth, which symbolizes the necessity for rebirth. Stresses the need for everyone of us to search our sacred zone in the midst of today's fast-paced, technological world.5. Love and the Goddess: Campbell talks about romantic love, beginning with the 12th century troubadours, and addresses questions about the photo of girls -- as goddess, virgin, Mother Earth.6. Masks of Eternity: Campbell provides insights into the ideas of God, religion and eternity, as revealed in Christian teachings and the beliefs of Buddhists, Navajo Indians, Schopenhauer, Jung, and others.Contains a premium interview with George "Star Wars" Lucas on mythology.I own over 3,500 DVDs and videos. This may be the most essential as it most directly impacts one's perceptions about life and afterlife, is simple to listen to, and leaves one more empowered than any Rocky-type movie. A score of 10, easily.


I had never heard of Joseph Campbell before stumbling across this series on PBS one afternoon. I was instantly absorbed in this penetrating (as deep as Bill Moyers goes) look at the power of myth and it's part in explaining our existence. He has an nice ability to relate stories to just about any topics or experience, basically off the top of his head.Imagery, symbolism, psychology, theological philosophy- it's all here in living color from one boy in an extended interview that seems to touch on most if not all of the majors boy has pondered over the ages. A gotta see for anyone seriously considering our zone under the heavens, amongst the gods.


This is the single most necessary tool I ever saw in my life...it introduced my to Joseph Campbell's work, which I soon read everything I should receive my hands on, and it gave me whole fresh perspectives on religion, myth, and my entire life's journey. The "labrynth" quote at the beginning of "The hero's journey" has guided me each since. And then there's just the easy pleasure of hearing two clever boys in clever conversation. And its astounding to watch Campbell at his age, so close to his death, discoursing on such a tons of topics. Its rare to tell a present changed ones life but this one did. I test to watch it thru at least once each several years, and have proudly introduced many mates to it as well. Gotta see viewing
