Hi.
Filmakers Library distributes the following new films that would be
suitable for Alternative Health:

Home Delivery. Documents the lives of three women who choose to
deliver their babies through midwives outside the established
hospital settings . One has a water birth.

River of Life. Breast Cancer survivors regain their emotional
health by participating in the world's longest canoe and kayak race.
(There is a dispute in the office if this is an alternative medicine
film, but you can decide)

These films are descriped in full on the web site www.filmakers.com

Hi Stephen –

Has your instructor looked at fora.tv?

http://fora.tv/

Topics cover just about everything, they’re in shorter chunks than a
longer documentary might be, but they also often include transcripts
which could be helpful for ESL students. It’s got a lot of great
content!

Hope that helps!
