| Indigenous Rights in Colombia, Argentina and Guatemala

* NEW Raised by Our Own Authority* Available on DVD
In May 2006, more than 300,000 Colombians, including indigenous communities
and social justice organizations, came to the National Traveling Summit to
demand a national referendum on the Free Trade Agreement with the United
States. This documentary, produced by the Association of Indigenous Council=
s
of the North of Cauca, reveals the brutal response of the Colombian state
against the indigenous reservation of La Mar=EDa and how the indigenous
communities organized themselves to fight against unfair state policies.

* NEW The Quilmes According to Miguel Mamani* Available on DVD
Decimated during the Spanish colonization and vilified by Argentina's
official history, the Quilmes remain alive in the ruins of their ancient
city and in the passionate voice of Miguel Mamani, a proud descendant of
this indigenous tribe. Drawing on oral tradition and the writings of Jesuit
scholars, Miguel tells the unofficial story of the Quilmes: their origins,
their way of life, their religious beliefs and their struggle to preserve
their own history and culture.

*Sipakapa Is Not For Sale* Available on DVD
Montana Exploradora, a subsidiary of the Canadian/American transnational
company Glamis Gold, received 45 million US dollars in financing from the
World Bank to exploit an open-pit gold mine in Sipakapa, Guatemala. In
accordance with ILO Convention 169, a Community Consultation was held in
this Maya region to establish whether the population would accept or reject
mining exploitation in its territory. The result was a resounding "NO" to
mining. *Sipakapa Is Not For Sale* analyses the debate on mining
exploitation and demonstrates the dignity of the Sipakapan People as they
fight to defend their autonomy in the face of encroaching neoliberal
megaprojects.

| Globalization and Neoliberalism in Argentina and Mexico

* NEW Los Cartoneros* Available on DVD
Juanchi, a 21-year-old from a small town outside Buenos Aires, supports
himself and his family by digging through trash. Six days a week, he roams
the street of the Argentine capital in search of cardboard and other
recyclables, hoping to sell his findings.
Like thousands of Argentines, he is "un cartonero", a cardboard collector.
"Cartoneros" comprise part of the country's booming informal economy, which
swelled drastically following the 2001 economic collapse of the country.
Now, as the government scrambles to repay foreign debt and find solid
footing in an ever globalized economy, the cardboard collectors' presence i=
n
the Argentine discourse continues to emerge. Will the benefits of free trad=
e
trickle down to people like Juanchi? How does Argentina's partnership with
the IMF and the World Bank play into their struggle for daily survival?
*Los Cartoneros* explores the relationship of globalization, poverty, and
how they affect the lives of those living through them.

*Land, Earth & Fire: Report from Oaxaca*
What began as a teachers' strike for better wages and more resources for
students has erupted into a massive movement for profound social change in
the state of Oaxaca. With the largest indigenous population in Mexico, the
state of Oaxaca is also one of the poorest, with the highest rate of school
dropouts. On June 14, 2006 at 4:20 AM, the police made a surprise attack.
The more than fifty thousand teachers camped out with their children awoke
to tear gas, pepper spray and helicopters. But the attack backfired as
public anger transformed the strike into an unprecedented democratic
insurgency, demanding the resignation of Governor Ruiz. Hundreds of unions,
indigenous and women's organizations, neighborhood groups, students and
professional associations came together and created The Popular Assembly of
the People of Oaxaca (APPO) and a massive campaign of nonviolent civil
disobedience has brought the state government to a standstill. Part of the
Call for Change series 2007.
*Land, Rain & Fire provides on-the-ground coverage of the conflict that has
heretofore been found only in bits and pieces via the Internet... Land, Rai=
n
& Fire analyzes the structural violence and poverty that motivates the
ongoing struggle, and makes clear, with every Oaxaque=F1o interviewed, that
the movement in Oaxaca is a struggle against neoliberalism and its tangible
effects on the lives of the people, particularly since the passage of NAFTA=
.

| African and Asian Diasporas in Latin America

* NEW Ritual Rhythms: Candombe* Available on DVD
This documentary explores the history and modern reality of candombe, the
drum music of Uruguay's black parade bands. It is a way of life that was
born in the musical gatherings of slaves in urban marketplaces and plazas.
Despite persistent racism, the 200,000 Uruguayans of African descent
experience candombe as a way of life, as part of the cast of characters tha=
t
inhabit the tenements of Montevideo's Reus and Ansina neighborhoods, where
parents rock cradles with drummed lullabies, and children learn to play
drums on oil cans. Moving from riveting musical performances to detailed
discussions of the history of slavery and the historical development of
candombe, *Ritual Rhythms* is an exciting and informative introduction to
candombe, the music of Afro-Uruguay.

* NEW Japan Across the Seas* Available on DVD
The Japanese who have settled in Argentina since the end of the 19th centur=
y
came for many reasons: escape poverty, wanderlust, good farming, and even a
love for tango. *Japan Across The Seas* weaves together the tales of the ol=
d
and the young, the Japanese-born and the second-generation, to tell the
history of the migrations that led to the establishment of
Japanese-Argentine communities in Misiones, Buenos Aires, and Cordoba; of
their struggles to balance their identities; of the discovery and
maintenance of Japanese culture; and of their attachment to Argentina. In
doing so, *Japan Across The Seas* paints a complex and multifaceted portrai=
t
of the diversity of the Japanese-Argentine experience.

| Music in Bolivia

* NEW El Charango* Available on DVD
This short documentary is about a little instrument, a large silver mine an=
d
the highest city in the world. Cerro Rico in Potosi, Bolivia, was discovere=
d
by Spanish conquistadors in 1545, who enslaved the local indigenous people.
It is said that 8 million people, including African slaves, died in the
mines of this mountain while providing Spain with immense wealth. The
Spanish culture spread into Potosi, and the local people became aware of
something they had never seen or heard before: a stringed instrument.
Forbidden from ever playing the Spanish guitar, the miners copied it and
created the charango. The story of the charango symbolizes the larger
struggle for human rights and a quest to keep traditional culture alive
among indigenous people.

| Women's Health in Brazil

* NEW Born in Brazil* Available on DVD
The World Health Organization suggests a maximum cesarean birth rate of 15%=
.
Although research shows that the majority of Brazilian women prefer natural
birth, statistics provide a different story --- 65% - 85% of all births in
private hospitals in Brazil are by cesarean section. Many obstetricians
attribute the high cesearean rate to patient demand, when in fact the
unnecessary surgery is more convenient and lucrative for doctors. *Born in
Brazil* challenges the dominant cultural belief that surgical delivery is
the modern, painless way to give birth, and that cesareans are what women
want.
*Born in Brazil* follows five pregnant women in private and public hospital=
s
in Porto Alegre, Brazil. In interviews before birth, the women share their
desires, fears, and expectations of childbirth. During birth, the ethical
conflicts of modern obstetrics become clear as doctors narrate their
patients' progress. A few days after birth, the women reflect on their
experience, often twisting facts and feelings to fit their obstetrician's
story of events.
As it explores the relationship between birth and technology, and the
pressures of modern society, *Born in Brazil* provides critical insight on
our desire to control the unpredictable by relying on calculated medical
procedures.
**2004 LASA Award of Merit in Film*
* "This excellent documentary...is a powerful, accessible, and gentle
approach to pregnancy and childbirth that will be of interest to those who
study women's issues, sociology, parenting, medicine, South American
culture, and the Portuguese language. Highly recommended for high school
students, college students, adult viewers, and the libraries that serve
them." --Sean Patrick Knowlton, Educational Media Reviews Online*
*"Cesarean birth rates in Brazil are more than double the numbers
recommended by the World Health Organization... With U.S. cesarean rates
also exceeding the who's recommendation, this film about birth practices in
Brazil is relevant to North American audiences as well as our South America=
n
neighbors. Recommended for most health collections." --A. Cantu, Video

Every weekend, hundreds of Latino immigrants pack the dance clubs of Jackso=

NEW Raised by Our Own Authority</b> Available on
DVD<br>
In May 2006, more than 300,000 Colombians,
including indigenous communities and social
justice organizations, came to the
National Traveling Summit to demand a
national referendum on the Free Trade
Agreement with the United States.
This documentary, produced by the Association
of Indigenous Councils of the North of Cauca,
reveals the brutal response of the Colombian
state against the indigenous reservation of
La Mar=EDa and how the indigenous
communities organized themselves to fight against
unfair state policies.<br>

NEW The Quilmes According to Miguel
Mamani</b> Available on
DVD<br>
Decimated during the Spanish colonization and
vilified by Argentina&#39;s official history, the
Quilmes remain alive in the ruins of their
ancient city and in the passionate voice of
Miguel Mamani, a proud descendant of this
indigenous tribe. Drawing on oral tradition
and the writings of Jesuit scholars, Miguel
tells the unofficial story of the Quilmes:
their origins, their way of life, their
religious beliefs and their struggle to
preserve their own history and culture.<br>

<b>Sipakapa Is Not For Sale</b> Available on
DVD<br>
Montana Exploradora, a subsidiary of the
Canadian/American transnational company Glamis
Gold, received 45 million US dollars in
financing from the World Bank to exploit an
open-pit gold mine in Sipakapa, Guatemala. In
accordance with ILO Convention 169, a
Community Consultation was held in this Maya
region
to establish whether the population would
accept or reject mining exploitation in its
territory. The result was a resounding &quot;NO&quot;
to mining. <i>Sipakapa Is Not For Sale</i>
analyses
the debate on mining exploitation and
demonstrates the dignity of the Sipakapan
People as they fight to defend their autonomy
in the face of encroaching neoliberal
megaprojects.<br>

NEW Los Cartoneros</b> Available on
DVD<br>
Juanchi, a 21-year-old from a small town
outside Buenos Aires, supports himself and
his family by digging through trash. Six days
a week, he roams the street of the Argentine
capital in search of cardboard and other
recyclables, hoping to sell his findings.<br>

Like thousands of Argentines, he is &quot;un
cartonero&quot;, a cardboard collector.
&quot;Cartoneros&quot; comprise part of the country&#39;s
booming informal economy, which swelled
drastically following the 2001 economic
collapse of the country. Now, as the
government scrambles to repay foreign debt
and find solid footing in an ever globalized
economy, the cardboard collectors&#39; presence
in the Argentine discourse continues to
emerge. Will the benefits of free trade
trickle down to people like Juanchi? How does
Argentina&#39;s partnership with the IMF and the
World Bank play into their struggle for daily
survival?<br>
<i>Los Cartoneros</i> explores the
relationship of globalization, poverty, and
how they affect the lives of those living
through them.<br>

Earth &amp; Fire: Report from Oaxaca</b><br>
What began as a teachers&#39; strike for better wages
and more resources for students has erupted
into a
massive movement for profound social change
in the
state of Oaxaca. With the largest indigenous
population in Mexico, the state of Oaxaca is also
one of the poorest, with the highest rate of
school dropouts. On June 14, 2006 at 4:20 AM, the
police
made a surprise attack. The more than fifty
thousand
teachers camped out with their children awoke
to tear gas, pepper spray and
helicopters.
But the attack backfired as public anger
transformed
the strike into an unprecedented democratic
insurgency, demanding the resignation of Governor
Ruiz. Hundreds of unions, indigenous and women&#39;s
organizations, neighborhood groups, students and
professional associations came together and
created
The Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca
(APPO)
and a massive campaign of nonviolent civil
disobedience has brought the state government
to a
standstill. Part of the Call for Change
series 2007.<br>

<i><b>Land, Rain &amp; Fire</b> provides
on-the-ground coverage of the conflict that
has heretofore been found only in bits and
pieces via the Internet... <b>Land, Rain &amp;
Fire</b> analyzes the structural violence and
poverty that motivates the ongoing struggle,
and makes clear, with every Oaxaque=F1o
interviewed, that the movement in Oaxaca is a
struggle against neoliberalism and its
tangible effects on the lives of the people,
particularly since the passage of NAFTA.

NEW Ritual Rhythms: Candombe</b> Available on
DVD<br>
This documentary explores the history and
modern reality of candombe, the drum music of
Uruguay&#39;s black parade bands. It is a way of
life that was born in the musical gatherings
of slaves in urban marketplaces and plazas.
Despite persistent racism,
the 200,000 Uruguayans of African descent
experience candombe as a way of life, as part
of the cast of characters that inhabit the
tenements of Montevideo&#39;s Reus and Ansina
neighborhoods, where parents rock cradles
with drummed lullabies, and children learn to
play drums on oil cans. Moving from riveting
musical performances to detailed discussions
of the history of slavery and the historical
development of candombe, <i>Ritual
Rhythms</i> is an
exciting and informative introduction to
candombe, the music of Afro-Uruguay.<br>

The Japanese who have settled in Argentina
since the end of the 19th century came for
many reasons: escape poverty, wanderlust,
good farming, and
even a love for tango. <i>Japan Across The
Seas</i>
weaves together the tales of the old and the
young, the Japanese-born and the
second-generation, to tell the history of the
migrations that led to the establishment of
Japanese-Argentine communities in Misiones,
Buenos Aires, and Cordoba; of their struggles
to balance their identities; of the discovery
and maintenance of Japanese culture; and of
their attachment to Argentina. In doing so,
<i>Japan Across The Seas</i> paints a complex and
multifaceted portrait of the diversity of the

NEW El Charango</b> Available on
DVD<br>
This short documentary is about a little
instrument, a large silver mine and the
highest city in the world. Cerro Rico in
Potosi, Bolivia, was discovered by Spanish
conquistadors in 1545, who enslaved the local
indigenous people. It is said that 8 million
people, including African slaves, died in the
mines of this mountain while providing Spain
with immense wealth. The Spanish culture
spread into Potosi, and the local people
became aware of something they had never seen
or heard before: a stringed instrument.
Forbidden from ever playing the Spanish
guitar, the miners copied it and created the
charango. The story of the charango
symbolizes the larger struggle for human
rights and a quest to keep traditional
culture alive among indigenous people.<br>

NEW Born in Brazil</b> Available on
DVD<br>
The World Health Organization suggests a
maximum cesarean birth rate of 15%. Although
research shows that the majority of Brazilian
women prefer natural birth, statistics
provide a different story --- 65% - 85% of
all births in private hospitals in Brazil are
by cesarean section. Many obstetricians
attribute the high cesearean rate to patient
demand, when in fact the unnecessary surgery
is more convenient and lucrative for doctors.
<i>Born in Brazil</i> challenges the dominant
cultural belief that surgical delivery is the
modern, painless way to give birth, and that
cesareans are what women want.<br>

<i>Born in Brazil</i> follows five pregnant
women in private and public hospitals in
Porto Alegre, Brazil. In interviews before
birth, the women share their desires, fears,
and expectations of childbirth. During birth,
the ethical conflicts of modern obstetrics
become clear as doctors narrate their
patients&#39; progress. A few days after birth,
the women reflect on their experience, often
twisting facts and feelings to fit their
obstetrician&#39;s story of events.<br>

As it explores the relationship between birth
and technology, and the pressures of modern
society, <i>Born in Brazil</i> provides
critical insight on our desire to control the
unpredictable by relying on calculated
medical procedures.<br>
<i>*2004 LASA Award of Merit in Film</i><br>
<i>
&quot;This excellent documentary...is a powerful,
accessible, and gentle approach to pregnancy
and childbirth that will be of interest to
those who study women&#39;s issues, sociology,
parenting, medicine, South American culture,
and the Portuguese language. Highly
recommended for high school students, college
students, adult viewers, and the libraries
that serve them.&quot; --Sean Patrick Knowlton,
Educational Media Reviews Online</i><br>

<i>&quot;Cesarean birth rates in Brazil are more
than double the numbers recommended by the
World Health Organization... With U.S.
cesarean rates also exceeding the who&#39;s
recommendation, this film about birth
practices in Brazil is relevant to North
American audiences as well as our South
American neighbors. Recommended for most
health collections.&quot; --A. Cantu, Video

Every weekend, hundreds of Latino immigrants
pack the dance clubs of Jackson Heights, in
Queens, New York City. There, they meet the
