Jean-Luc Godard’s ferocious run of ground breaking 1960s commercial features neared a terminus point as the filmmaker turned his gaze onto the nascent left-wing student organisations coalescing on university campuses across France and environs. The resulting film was his searing masterpiece La Chinoise — a mordant satire, pedagogical treatise, political tract, and pop-artwork-“plus blood” rolled into one. It’s early ’67 and Radio Peking’s in the air for the Aden Arabie Cell, a Maoist collective holed up in a sprawling flat on Paris’s rue de Miromesnil — the newly purchased actual residence of Godard and then-wife and star Anne Wiazemsky. Véronique (Wiazemsky) and her comrades, including Jean-Pierre Léaud (The 400 Blows, Out 1) and Juliet Berto (Out 1, Céline and Julie Go Boating) lead a series of discussions and performative skits addressing matters of French colonialism, American imperialism, and the broader conflict raging in Vietnam. A meditation on the efficacy of violent protest and militant counteraction played out between Wiazemsky (conducted by Godard via radio-earpiece), and her then-tutor philosopher Francis Jeanson gives way to a plot to assassinate the Soviet minister of culture — a red-handed point of no going-back on the path to complete radicalisation. A tour-de-force of the primary-palette images — the ‘household images,’ perhaps — of Godard’s early career, La Chinoise serves as both cautionary tale and early sign of fascination with the political currents that would soon lead to the next period of JLG’s life and work. — “The revolution is not a dinner-party.” SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS: High Definition (1080p) Blu-ray presentation Original LPCM Mono 2.0 audio Optional English subtitles Audio commentary by film historian James Quandt Interviews with actor Michel Semeniako, assistant director Charles L.

Multiple award-winning, New York Times and number-one internationally best-selling author Peter Robinson returns with Children of the Revolution, a superb tale of mystery and murder that takes acclaimed British Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks back to the early 1970s - a turbulent time of politics, change, and radical student activism. The body of a disgraced college lecturer is found on an abandoned railway line. In the four years since his dismissal for sexual misconduct, he’d been living like a hermit. So where did he get the 5,000 pounds found in his pocket? Leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks begins to suspect that the victim's past may be connected to his death. Forty years ago the dead man attended a university that was a hotbed of militant protest and divisive, bitter politics. And as the seasoned detective well knows, some grudges are never forgotten - or forgiven. Just as he’s about to break the case open, his superior warns him to back off. Yet Banks isn’t about to stop, even if it means risking his career. He's certain there’s more to the mystery than meets the eye...and more skeletons to uncover before the case can finally be closed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Prebble.

The gripping memoir of the leader of the British suffragette movement who was named by Time as one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century With insight and great wit, Emmeline Pankhurst's autobiography chronicles the beginnings of her interest in feminism through to her militant and controversial fight for women's right to vote. While Emmeline received a good education, attending an all-girls school and being expected to conform to social norms, she rebelled against conventional women's roles. At the age of 14 a meeting of women's rights activists sparked a lifelong passion in her to fight for women's freedom, and she would later claim that it was on that day she became a suffragist. As one after another of the proposed feminist bills were defeated in parliament, Pankhurst was inspired to turn to extreme actions. While she was the figurehead of the suffragette movement, it advocated some controversial tactics such as arson, violent protest, and hunger strikes. Even today there is still debate about the effectiveness of her extreme strategies, but her work is recognized as a crucial element in achieving women's suffrage in Britain. Her mantle was taken up by her daughters and granddaughter, with her legacy still very much alive today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Duerden.

Zo Artzeinu was a political protest movement created and led by Moshe Feiglin and Shmuel Sackett in Israel to block Israeli land concessions to the Arabs in the early 1990s, especially the Oslo Accords. The movement was known to block roads and use other forms of civil disobedience adapted from the civil rights movement in the United States to make known their protests and goals.Feiglin and Sackett established Zo Artzeinu after the Knesset of Israel banned the Kach party movement in Israel. Feiglin and Sackett were determined to find a way to continue the goals of Kahane for a more Judaic and secure Israel, but by peaceful means only. They did not agree with the more militant approach of Kahane''s son Rabbi Binyamin Ze''ev Kahane who had set up the Kahane Chai movement which was then subsequently also officially banned.In 1998, Feiglin and Sackett moved on to establish the Manhigut Yehudit ("Jewish Leadership") faction within the Likud party, with Feiglin eventually running for leadership of the Likud party.
Nigeria s Niger Delta has become increasingly famous because of its rich massive oil deposits and escalating violence in the region. The emergence of deadly militant groups and activities in protest to exploitative oil exploration and undeserving underdevelopment in the region has been approached by the federal government in several ways. The most recent approach to the Niger Delta crisis is the amnesty programme adopted on 25th June 2009. This study examines the amnesty programme and human capital development in the Niger Delta region, with emphasis on Bayelsa State. The ideological bases of Marxian political economy, Habermasian Social Movement Theory (SMT) and Althusserian State Apparatus Theory (SAT) were employed to enhanced the understanding of amnesty and militancy (or oil-related violence) as conceptual issues of the study. Data for the study were obtained through questionnaire administered on 300 respondents who were randomly and purposively selected. Simple percentages and the Chi-square statistical tool were adopted as the analytical tools for the study. Three null hypotheses were formulated and tested using the chi-square statistical analysis. Two of the hypotheses
