Breast Cancer Diaries
77 minutes - $39.95 - DVD

For ten years, Ann Murray Paige covered the news-but for the biggest story of her life she turned the camera on herself. When Ann, a former local news reporter and anchor, is diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 38, she sets up a diary camera in her bedroom. Ann’s video—raw and true—offer an intimate chronicle of a mother’s nine month journey, punctuated with humor, poignancy and romance. Along the way Ann—with characteristic wit-- challenges everything from drive-through mastectomies to how American society all too often defines a woman by her breasts. She ultimately decides against reconstructive surgery, despite her work as a newscaster in the appearance-obsessed field of local television news. The Diaries is a chronicle of illness met with attitude, symbolized by the “Cancer Sucks” button that Ann pins on her shirt. Throughout it all there is humor: from a hospital flashing scene, to a young son’s attempt to heal his mother with a whoopee cushion. With video diaries and verite footage woven together, The Diaries is a real-time portrayal of the unique issues and juggling act that face the 1 in 7 women in the world who are diagnosed with breast cancer. Director Linda Pattillo, herself an award-winning former network news correspondent (ABC NEWS and CNN), spent 15 years covering wars across the globe. In The Diaries, she covers a far more intimate and personal battle—that of a young woman and mother facing a life threatening illness. The resulting documentary is an unfettered, unvarnished memoir of the year that changed one woman’s life.

Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple
85 minutes - $39.95 - DVD

On November 18, 1978, over 900 members of Peoples Temple died in the largest mass suicide/murder in history. What drew so many people across racial and class lines to the Peoples Temple? How could a diverse group of 900 people be convinced to commit suicide? What was a California congregation doing in the jungles of Guyana? And who was Jim Jones to command such loyalty that parents would murder their own children? Using never before seen archival footage and survivor interviews, ‘Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple’ tells the story of the people who followed Jim Jones from Indiana, to California, and finally to the remote jungles of Guyana, South America, in a misbegotten quest to build an ideal society.

Israel in a Time of Terror
26 minutes - $39.95 - DVD

Terror bombing after terror bombing, day after day. A sidewalk cafe becomes as dangerous as a military outpost. A simple trip to the supermarket becomes a horror of flying nails, glass and death. Never has a nation had to endure such attacks. How do Israelis deal with this pervasive terror? How do they explain their near-solitude in the world? How do they really feel about Arabs? These are some of the questions that one of America's most respected thinkers, Dennis Prager, went to Israel to find answers to. After seeing and hearing the randomly chosen Israeli men and women in this documentary, you will never read about terror the same way again, and you will gain the deepest admiration for Israel and for the human spirit.
