Hi, Chris,

Filmakers Library distributes many films on Diversity. A small sampling is listed below:

Today's Man: Adventures of a Young Man with Asperger Syndrome

A portrait of the filmmaker's brother, a delightful 21-year-old with Asperger's Syndrome. The family tries to prepare him for independence. (Click on title for full description.)

Covered Girls

Muslim-American girls are lively and full of fun -- despite wearing the traditional "hijab". Since 9/11 they must cope with suspicion.

Companeras

This lively film follows a group of Latina musicians as they break the gender barrier to perform mariachi music in America.

An Unlikely Friendship

An Unlikely Friendship is a film about a surprising friendship beween an embittered Ku Klux Klan leader and an outspoken black woman activist. Told in their own words, this compelling story is as sincere and down-home as the protagonists.

My American Girls: A Dominican Family

The Ortiz family came to New York to give their daughters better opportunities. But raising them in a new country presented its own challenges.

Hear and Now

After 65 years of silence, Paul and Sally Taylor decide to undergo cochlear implant surgery and explore the totally unfamiliar world of sound. In this deeply personal memoir, the filmmaker documents the profound changes in her parents' lives after the surgery.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
