Dear Colleagues, For Columbus Day Weekend, DER is offering free streaming of COLUMBUS DIDN'T DISCOVER US by award-winning filmmaker Robbie Leppzer, which you can view all weekend from the link below.
COLUMBUS DIDN'T DISCOVER US <http://vimeo.com/108517451> In preparation for the Columbus Quincentennial, 300 Native men and women came to the highlands of Ecuador to take part in the First Continental Conference of Indigenous Peoples. Columbus Didn't Discover Us features interviews with participants, filmed at this historic gathering, representing a wide spectrum of Indian nations from North, South, and Central America. This title is part of DER's newly released collection of social documentary films by Leppzer, THE TURNING TIDE COLLECTION <http://www.der.org/films/turning-tide.html>. Leppzer's works capture the experiences of ordinary people grappling with critical issues of our time, such as war and peace, environmental protection, human rights, and cross-cultural understanding. His film, video, and public radio works remain a valuable historical record of the 20th and 21st Centuries, and encapsulate the experience of grassroots activism from a cross-section of races, religions, and ages. Perfect for courses in American Studies, Peace & Justice, Anthropology, Sociology, History, or for anyone interested in social movements and activism. You can order through our website <http://www.der.org/>, or by calling the office at 617-926-0491 or toll-free at 800-569-662. If you would like to review any of these films, or have any questions, please email me.

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.
