Al Gore finds life after the politically crushing embarrassment that was his tenure as vice president and, frankly, it's unlikely he will experience another point as high as his achievement in this profound, engaging and, mercifully, clear documentary on the consequences of our complacent greed. That ĎAn Inconvenient Truth' provides little in the way of true revelations pertaining to the earth's (humanity's) looming ecological demise, and ignores some of the more profound problems of trapped car find out more...

A community worker sets the world to rights teaching prostitutes' children the art of photography in a red light area of Calcutta. As she befriends them she takes it on herself to 'rescue' them from their fate, their friends and their families by getting them enrolled in private education schools to help them change their destiny. Zana is such a powerful person that, as the follow up DVD extra 'Reconnecting with Born into Brothels' demonstrates, she succeeds. This is a superb film animated by th find out more...

A top notch documentary following an undercover team, who in a daring act of espionage, record the bloody annual slaughter of over 2,000 dolphins in Taiji National Park, Japan, by the local fishing community. This slaughter is commercially driven not only by the sale of cheap 'whale' meat to supermarkets, but the huge value of those taken alive for dolphinaria, a craze that, to his everlasting sadness, was introduced by current activist, project instigator and once trainer of dolphins for the find out more...
