Dear Blaine:

One Bullfrog title that comes to mind immediately is FLIGHT OF THE STONE.
In this wordless film, a young man pries a cobblestone from the street and
throws it at an enemy. The stone misses its mark, enters into a very low
earth orbit, and from there witnesses the trials and tribulations of human
relationships around the world...until it finally approaches--from
behind--the person who threw it.

It's 15 minutes long, available in 35mm, 16mm, or any video format. It has
shown at festivals around the world, and was voted German Short Film of the
Year. It's a great film for sparking discussion.

For more information check http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/flight.html

There are also three outstanding short animated films in the National Film
Board of Canada's "ShowPeace" series. They are DINNER FOR TWO
(http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/dinn.html), WHEN THE DUST SETTLES
(http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/dust.html), and BULLY DANCE
(http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/bully.html).

These are only available on video.

For other suggestions, please check under Peace and Conflict Resolution
Videos at http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/subjects/peaceconflictresolution.html

Yours,
John Hoskyns-Abrahall

I'm interested in screening some documentaries on peace and conflict
resolution for our monthly film series this December. Any suggestions for
films appropriate to an adult public library audience would be warmly
appreciated. Thanks!
