The Forsaken Promise (2007)
In November, 1917, the British government made a pledge to the Jewish people through the Balfour Declaration to help establish a Jewish National Homeland in the territory then known as Palestine. After World War I ended, the League of Nations awarded Britain the Mandate for Palestine with the proviso that the Balfour Declaration was implemented along with "close Jewish settlement in the Land." As difficulties arose, Britain gradually watered down her original commitment until the MacDonald White Paper of 1939 virtually closed the borders of Palestine to Jewish immigration.
The Forsaken Promise documents the failure of Britain and her appointed institutions and officials, whether military, administrative or political, to fulfill her pledge under the Balfour Declaration and her legal obligations under the Mandate. It highlights a number of tragic events that took place during that period, mainly through the testimonies of people who were victims of those events, participant in them, or eye-witnessed to them. They speak of Britain's political expediency and even treachery towards the Jewish people in appeasing the militant Arab nationalist movement, as well as causing the wholesale misery of many thousands of Jewish people who were turned away from the shores of Palestine in the 1930s and 40s. Through the 1939 White Paper, the British government also made inevitable the deaths of an untold number of Jews who could have escaped Hitler's Final Solution, had they been able to find refuge in their ancient homeland.
Here is an excellent resource, thoroughly researched and documented and beautifully produced that sets fourth the perspective of many Israelis on the historical grievances and current tensions in the Holy Land.

It is 1952, and Captain Maxwell Carter, USMC, is having a bad day. Waking up naked in the middle of the freezing desert, an alien device around his neck, Carter is picked up by Capt. Jake Mason, an enigmatic Air Force officer assigned to transport him to a mysterious, anonymous military test facility in a remote section of Area 51. Mason, however, offers no clarity as to the situation, and Carter's ride begins. Once ensconced in the security of the test facility, Captain Carter learns that he is part of a nightmarish experiment - he is pregnant with an alien baby! "S4" follows the gestation of the Trugollion/Human hybrid infant and its effect on Carter (his sudden ability to read minds at random, his desire to consume live birds, his emotional break downs and mimicking of the hormonal instability associated with pregnancy), and the struggle of Captain Jake Mason, the stoic foil to Carter's emotional deterioration, to maintain his charge through the care and nurturing of the military's best test subject. Faced not only with an emotionally unstable, mind reading pregnant Marine, Mason must also cope with the manipulative Colonel Thadeus Drake, a career hungry Air Force doctor - mad scientist - evil administrator who seeks to entangle Mason in his twisted plans, and "Angie", the high level alien liaison from the Trugollion Empire. 'Angie' has been stuck on Earth awaiting her replacement since 1947, and finds herself 'going native' as her attraction to Jake Mason heats up. Sent to Earth in a pleasing human female form, Angie struggles with her desire to return to her home world and her lust for Captain Mason. Shot in black and white and with a simple, one camera technique that harkens perfectly back to the 1950's heyday of "B' movies and fun sci-fi, "S4" delights audiences in theatres and on DVD, and had already developed an avid following of viewers demanding "S4-2"!

"Man's right to know, to learn, to inquire, to make bona fide errors, to investigate human emotions must, by all means, be safe, if the word freedom should ever be more than an empty political slogan." -- Wilhelm Reich, at his trial, 1954
Rocking Poponguine (1994)
Ça Twiste à Poponguine is perhaps the most charming, fast-paced and accessible film in our Library of African Cinema collection. This bittersweet, coming of age story is a kind of African equivalent of George Lucas' American Graffiti, Spike Lee's Crooklyn or Godard's Masculin/Feminin. These Senegalese teenagers living it up on the beach may also remind less discriminating viewers of Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon in Beach Blanket Bingo! Director Moussa Sene Absa's comedy is set during the weeks before Christmas, 1964, in a seaside village, where the local teenagers are divided into rival cultural camps. The "Ins" (or Inseparables) have adopted the names of French pop stars - Johnny Halliday, Sylvie Vartan, "Clo Clo" and Eddie Mitchell. Their clique attends school, has a female auxiliary, exchanges fervent love poetry - but they don't own a record player. The Kings, on the other hand, style themselves after African American Rhythm and Blues legends - Otis Redding, Ray Charles and James Brown. They work as fishermen, don't have any girls but they do have a record player. The story of their rivalry is told through the memories of Bacc, a husky-voiced, street-smart little boy who acts as a messenger for the older kids. Abandoned by his father and mother, he's been adopted by the whole village. His grandmother, Madame Castiloor, the keeper of the local tales, predicts: "Someday you too will be a storyteller, who will make Africa famous throughout the world." Her counterpart is M. Benoit, the gruff but well-loved, French teacher, who continues to propagate French culture in the post-colonial period. He makes his students memorize the fables of Jean de la Fontaine and paddles anyone who speaks anything but French in class. Beneath its genial surface, Ça Twiste à Poponguine is about the importance and ultimate fragility of dreams and about each person's right to construct whatever dream they ne
