|Mae West had an inexhaustibly playful interest in language, and a rare, sometimes perplexing, and even lofty wit, spiced by low-down slang. Well before the second wave of feminism, she wrote all her own material, insisted on total control of her work, and was wildly popular for a short time, right before the Production Code lowered the boom on adult attitudes being expressed in films. She made only 12 movies, but three are first-rate, and these were enough to seal her fame and launch a legend. In her first film appearance, "Night After Night," a successful ex-boxer buys a high-class speakeasy and falls for a rich society girl. As the bold Tira in "I'm No Angel," she works as a dancing beauty and lion tamer at a fair. For "Goin' To Town," West goes Western. Cleo Borden is a former dance hall queen who has become newly rich. She falls for--and pursues--an upper crust Englishman. This is followed by "Go West Young Man," where she plays Mavis Arden, a movie star stranded in the country. To stifle her boredom, she trifles with a young man's affections. "My Little Chickadee" pairs West with a legend of similar stature, W.C. Fields. As Flower Belle Lee, she is rightly suspected of illicit relations with the Masked Bandit, and run out of Little Bend. Surprisingly, things change very little when she arrives in Greasewood City to start over.|

They escaped a food crisis and other persecutions at home that have claimed the lives of approximately 3 million in the past 10 years. The Chinese Government, in direct violation of international laws to which it's a party, systematically arrests and forcibly repatriates hundreds of these refugees each month. Defecting from North Korea is a capital offense, and repatriated refugees face human rights abuses ranging from concentration camps and torture to forced abortion and summary executions. For a lucky few refugees, however, there is hope. A group of multinational activists has taken it upon themselves to create an Underground Railroad. Via a network of safe houses and escape routes, the activists, at great personal risk, help the refugees on daring escapes to freedom over hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of miles of Chinese territory" -- The producers.|

It all happened because a family court had ignored Holly's charges, the children's pleas, Holly's broken nose, Zackary's fractured skull, and other medical evidence of domestic violence. The family court gave full custody of Zackary and Jennifer to Holly's ex-husband. It was at that point that Holly came to believe she and the children had No Way Out But One. In what has become an incredible saga, Holly eventually fled the United States. For a while, she lived beneath the radar, hiding on Indian reservations, in Mexico and Guatemala. With three children and no passports, incredibly, she made it to Amsterdam where she blurted out a plea for asylum. The fact that she was fleeing domestic violence and would not be protected if she were returned to the US, seemed ridiculous at first. But Holly had come armed with legal and medical documents. At first, she and her children were treated as refugees, living in a refugee center with others fleeing violence from around the world. Living shoulder to shoulder with people learning to use indoor plumbing for the first time in their lives, Holly and her kids made the best of it. At least they were safe. Holly became the first US citizen to be granted asylum by the government of the Netherlands. She lived a quiet, low profile life for the next 14 years, until FBI agents came calling. Hoping to return Holly to the US to face kidnapping charges, they interviewed her now grown children. Jennifer and Zackary told the agents that far from being their kidnapper, their mother was their savior and their hero. Eventually, all charges against Holly were dropped, save one: contempt of court. In September of 2011, Holly and her children returned to the US.|

The film documents the redevelopment of Fulton Mall, a bustling African-American and Caribbean commercial district that - despite its status as the third most profitable shopping area in New York City - is maligned for its inability to appeal to the affluent residents who have come to live around it. As a hundred small businesses are replaced by high rise luxury housing and chain retail, Anderson uncovers the web of global corporations, politicians and secretive public-private partnerships that drive seemingly natural neighborhood change. The film's ultimate question is increasingly relevant on a global scale: who has a right to live in cities and determine their future?"--Publisher's website.|

Milk was elected to a City Supervisor position in the '70s, when a successful gay politician was an anomaly, but Milk made the most of his brief time in power. When Dan White killed Milk and Mayor George Moscone, the loss experienced by Milk's supporters was profound. White robbed the gay-rights movement of a charismatic leader and eloquent voice, but he accidentally gave it something a smart political operative like Milk would surely have appreciated the power and value of: a bona fide martyr.||DISC 1: The times of Harvey Milk -- Harvey's political will -- Mayor of Castro Street -- A new kind of politics -- Campaign for supervisor -- Something new at city hall -- Advancing the issues -- San Francisco's Gay Rights Bill -- Proposition 6 -- Road to victory -- Dan White resigns -- Tragedy at city hall -- Candlelight march -- The trial -- "He got away with murder" -- Hope -- Closing credits -- Color bars -- Postscript -- Trailer.
