  这部电影开始是非裔美国人Darnellia Russell 进入以白人和上层阶级为主的罗斯福高中的两年前。美国华盛顿大学的税法教授Bill Resler 成为他们的女孩篮球新教练。一位利用动物和大自然的主题激励他的团队的教练Relser 认为他们能赢得华盛顿州的冠军称号,但他们在州锦标赛的第一场比赛中却没达到目标。
  几年后,Darnellia 上了罗斯福高中,在那里她组织了学校的初级队。得知她的天赋的时候,Resler招募了她参加学校的运动代表队。在接下来的几年里,这个有实力的罗斯福队在胜负难分的比赛中没有夺冠……
  The film begins two years before the African-American Darnellia Russell attends the predominantly white and upper-class Roosevelt High School. Bill Resler, a tax law professor at the University of Washington, becomes their new girls basketball coach. Relser, a coach who uses animal and nature themes to motivate his team, believes they can win the Washington State championship but they fall short in the first game of the state tournament.
  A couple of years later, Darnellia attends Roosevelt High School where she makes the junior-varsity team. Learning of her natural talent, Resler recruits her for the varsity squad. In the following years, the talented Roosevelt team falls short of winning the state championship in close games. Darnellia receives letters of interest from several major universities. However, after her junior year, Darnellia becomes pregnant by her longtime boyfriend and drops out of school.
  After giving birth to a daughter, Darnellia returns to Roosevelt for her fifth year. The WIAA (Washington Interscholastic Activities Association) bans Russell from playing basketball due to a rule that states that high school students can only play on their teams for four years, unless a hardship is involved. Darnellia, believing that having an unplanned child constitutes a hardship, appeals the decision. Attorney Ken Luce represents Darnellia in court and a judge rules in Darnellia’s favor. The WIAA takes the matter to court again, and for the second time the judge grants Darnellia the right to continue playing. However, the WIAA files a lawsuit against Darnellia and Roosevelt High School. In defiance of the WIAA, the Roughriders continue to play with Darnellia on the team.
  Darnellia and her team return to the Washington State high school basketball championship tournament and play their rivals, the Garfield Bulldogs in the finals. Darnellia leads the team to the school’s first state championship.

  这部电影还前往不理想的天气条件激发灵感的地方……
  Thanks to incredible camerawork by John-Paul Beeghly and his crew, you begin to get a sense of what this means: repeated shots of huge curling waves, riders crouching “in the tube,” “wave dancing,” and, in the case of Australia’s phenomenal Taj Burrow (deemed “the future” of surfing), evincing joyous creativity—hotdogging on water.
  The film also journeys to locations where less than ideal weather conditions inspire innovation. Where Tahiti’s Teahupo’o offers “waves with teeth,” and lots of blue sky, or Hawaii’s North Shore gorgeous green-blue waters, other situations are less obviously exhilarating. You know the surfers are dedicated in the brown waters of Lake Michigan in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, or chasing tanker wakes in Galveston, Texas shipping lanes. A Vietnam War vet takes his teenaged son with him to Danang, where they find a stanch surf club of ten members and lame waves; they eventually resort to surfing sand dunes. A cloying episode follows the brothers Mallory, Irish-Americans who surf in the frigid waters off County Donegal, and spend a day teaching Protestant and Catholic kids to board.

  A semiserious, often rollicking, multigenerational insider’s look at the origins of surfing, the colorful and subversive birth of surf culture, and the mythology and lure of the big wave. This passionate and fluid film is without question the first authentic history of surfing from its humble Hawaiian beginnings to the big business it became to the still-rebellious universe it inhabits today. Riding Giants is a study in individuality and freedom, the pursuit and techniques of pure kinetic pleasure, and the risk taking and attitudes that characterize its leading figures. For some viewers, this is perhaps more than they ever wanted to know. But Peralta’s detailed knowledge of the surfing lifestyle, its icons and locations, its boom and exploitation by the media, and the fascination it has held for young men for more than five decades is unparalleled and fuels this expedition for the expert and initiate alike. Closely chronicling the sometimes-life-and-death drama that big-wave riding entails, Riding Giants is an often-mesmerizing visual thrill ride. But the most appealing aspect of this often revelatory documentary is the realization that the man versus nature dialectic never ends; the search for the ultimate wave and the spiritual pinnacle can only be pursued but never reached.

  电影《难以忽视的真相An Inconvenient Truth》以电影形式由Al Gore 呈现了气候的图解,旨在提醒公众由于全球变暖而面临日益严重的“行星紧急情况”, 并从影响了他对环境问题的关注的,他的生命故事中再现了这些事件。他在1989年开始用挂图插图做这些陈述; 电影版采用Gore 称之为“幻灯片秀”的主题演讲……
  An Inconvenient Truth presents in film form an illustrated talk on climate by Al Gore, aimed at alerting the public to an increasing “planetary emergency” due to global warming, and shows re-enacted incidents from his life story which influenced his concerns about environmental issues. He began making these presentations in 1989 with flip chart illustrations; the film version uses a Keynote presentation, which Gore refers to as “the slide show”.
  The former vice president opens the film by greeting an audience with his well-known line about his campaign in 2000: “I am Al Gore; I used to be the next President of the United States.” He is shown using his laptop to edit his presentation, and pondering the difficulty he has had in awakening public concern: “I’ve been trying to tell this story for a long time and I feel as if I’ve failed to get the message across.”
  Gore then begins his slide show on Global Warming; a comprehensive presentation replete with detailed graphs, flow charts and stark visuals. Gore shows off several photographs of the Earth taken from multiple space missions, as Earthrise and The Blue Marble. Gore notes that these photos dramatically transformed the way we see the Earth, helping spark modern environmentalism.

  电影《基督营Jesus Camp》是关于神学院消防学校的孩子们的故事,一个位于北达科他州魔鬼湖外的一个有魅力的基督教夏令营,并且由Becky Fischer和她的“国际儿童事务部”经营。这部电影着重聚焦2005年夏天参加夏令营的三个孩子,Levi,Rachael 和 Tory (Victoria)。这部影片截取了夏令营和在基督凯旋门教堂前举行的儿童祈祷会议的录像。基督凯旋门教堂是密苏里州密苏里市郊区的一个大教堂,是一座有魅力的大教堂……
  Jesus Camp is about the Kids on Fire School of Ministry, a charismatic Christian summer camp located just outside Devils Lake, North Dakota and run by Becky Fischer and her ministry, “Kids in Ministry International.” The film focuses on three children who attended the camp in the summer of 2005—Levi, Rachael, and Tory (Victoria). The film cuts between footage of the camp and a children’s prayer conference held just before the camp at Christ Triumphant Church, a large charismatic church in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City.
  All three children are already very devout Christians. Levi has preached several sermons at his father’s church, Rock of Ages Church in St. Robert, Missouri. He is homeschooled, his mother explaining that God did not give her a child just so he could be raised by someone else eight hours a day. He learns science from a book that attempts to reconcile young-earth creationism with scientific principles.[5] He is also taught that global warming is a political speculation, that the speculation stems from temperatures being higher in the summer months, that America’s temperature has “only” risen by 0.6 °F, and therefore, the rise is not important. Levi preaches a sermon at the camp in which he declares that his generation is key to bringing Jesus back. Rachael, who also attends Levi’s church (her father was assistant pastor at the time), is seen praying over a bowling ball during a game early in the film, and frequently passes Christian tracts (including some by Jack Chick) to strangers, telling them that Jesus loves them.

  The film starts with the events of March 2004 in Fallujah, where four Blackwater contractors were ambushed, set afire, their burned corpses dragged through the streets and then finally displayed hanging from a bridge. In interviews, two of the contractors’ families contend that Blackwater, in search of higher profit, neglected to provide proper support and protection to their employees, including maps, decent translators, an armored vehicle, and sufficient security personnel (their convoy was short a machine gunner). The families contend that with such support, their loved ones might be alive today.
  Iraq for Sale then takes contractors Titan and CACI to task for providing “interrogation support” for the notorious Abu Ghraib prison. These civilian contractors were outside the chain of military command, and were never held accountable for the amply documented, unsupervised torture they initiated.
  According to interviews with survivors, Halliburton subsidiary KBR was responsible for the “Good Friday Massacre” deaths of six drivers who the corporation irresponsibly put into dangerous zones – zones which were supposed to be off limits to civilians. Also, in interviews, Halliburton’s former employees charge that while the company had a sole contract to provide purified water for US troops, they actually distributed contaminated drinking water.

  The film follows Chappelle during the summer of 2004, up until September 18, 2004, when he threw a block party on the corner of Quincy Street and Downing Street in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. The film features nearby sites including the Broken Angel House in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn as well as areas in Fort Greene, Brooklyn and Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The film was produced before Chappelle’s highly publicized decision to walk away from a $50 million deal to continue his hit Chappelle’s Show, and gained prominence after the announcement.
  He invited several hip hop and neo-soul musical artists to perform at the party, including Kanye West, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and The Roots along with The Central State University Marching Band. Lauryn Hill was also scheduled to perform at the party, but since Columbia Records refused to release her songs for use in the production, she decided instead to reunite The Fugees for the occasion. In addition, Chappelle performed comedy monologues and sketches in between the musical acts.
