Call Number: PN1995.9.H47 L385 2012
Description: "Filmmakers Miguel Picker and Chyng Sun examine how U.S. news and entertainment media portray--and do not portray--Latinos. Drawing on the insights of Latino scholars, journalists, community leaders, actors, directors, and producers, they uncover a pattern of gross misrepresentation and gross under-representation--a world in which Latinos tend to appear, if at all, as gangsters and Mexican bandits, harlots and prostitutes, drug dealers and welfare-leeching illegals. The film challenges viewers to think critically about the wide-ranging effects of these media stereotypes, and to envision alternative representations and models of production more capable of capturing the humanity and diversity of real Latinos."--Container.

The bro code [videorecording] : how contemporary culture creates sexist men / a presentation of the Media Education Foundation ; written and produced by Thomas Keith.

February 9, 2014 - 12:40am
Title: The bro code [videorecording] : how contemporary culture creates sexist men / a presentation of the Media Education Foundation ; written and produced by Thomas Keith.
Call Number: BF692.5 .B76 2011
Description: "Filmmaker Thomas Keith takes aim at the forces in male culture that condition boys and men to dehumanize and disrespect women. Keith breaks down a range of contemporary media forms, zeroing in on movies and music videos that glamorize womanizing, pornography that trades in the brutalization of women, comedians who make fun of sexual assault, and a groundswell of men's magazines and cable TV shows that revel in old-school myths of American manhood. Even as epidemic levels of men's violence against women persist in the real world, the message Keith uncovers in virtually every corner of our entertainment culture is clear: It's not only normal -- but cool -- for boys and men to control and humiliate women. Arguing that there's nothing normal, natural, or inevitable about this mentality, The Bro Code challenges young people, young men and women alike, to step up and fight back against the idea that being a real man means being sexist"--Publisher's website.

Call Number: HF5822 .K4784 2010
Description: "In this new, highly anticipated update of her pioneering Killing us softly series, the first in more than a decade, Jean Kilbourne takes a fresh look at how advertising traffics in distorted and destructive ideals of femininity. The film marshals a range of new print and television advertisements to lay bare a stunning pattern of damaging gender stereotypes--images and messages that too often reinforce unrealistic, and unhealthy, perceptions of beauty, perfection, and sexuality. By bringing Kilbourne's groundbreaking analysis up to date, Killing us softly 4 stands to challenge a new generation of students to take advertising seriously, and to think critically about popular culture and its relationship to sexism, eating disorders, and gender violence"--Container.

Call Number: RM216 .F66 2007
Description: The maxim "You are what you eat" could have originated with a few hungry self-experimenters who proved that nutrition is critical to good health.

Viewers will learn how, when the medical establishment ignored his findings, Goldberger went on to inject himself and his devoted wife with the blood of a woman dying with pellagra, in order to make his point and establish diet as a critical factor in health and medical care.
