Putlocker Reel Bad Arabs How Hollywood Vilifies a People (2006)
This groundbreaking documentary dissects a slanderous aspect of cinematic history that has run virtually unchallenged form the earliest days of silent film to today's biggest Hollywood blockbusters. Featuring acclaimed author Dr. Jack Shaheen, the film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs--from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding "terrorists"--along the way offering devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypic images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today. Shaheen shows how the persistence of these images over time has served to naturalize prejudicial attitudes toward Arabs and Arab culture, in the process reinforcing a narrow view of individual Arabs and the effects of specific US domestic and international policies on their lives. By inspiring critical thinking about the social, political, and basic human consequences of leaving these Hollywood caricatures unexamined, the film challenges viewers to recognize the urgent need for counter-narratives that do justice to the diversity and humanity of Arab people and the reality and richness of Arab history and culture.

When they meet, it's love at first sight, for her all-consuming, for him one of many happy bed partnerships as she later discovers. Deaths in her family soon make Juana Isabella's heir, but Ferdinand suggests she inherited her grandmother's madness and supports Philip's ambition to rule instead, which becomes the stakes of political maneuvering in the Cortes (nobility-dominated parliament).

Putlocker The Man Who Will Come (2009)
Following on from his mightily impressive debut feature, The Wind Blows Round, given its world premiere at the LFF in 2005, Giorgio Diritti returns with this larger scale World War Two drama. Set, like the previous film, within a remote community – this time the farms, villages and countryside outside Bologna – depicts, with lyrical simplicity and austerely beautiful images, the rhythms of life and work in a culture largely unchanged for centuries. Gradually, though, the reality of war begins to impinge as Germans arrive and fighting between the soldiers and partisans (located nearby and hidden within the community) escalates. Inexorably, the settled world of the community begins to disintegrate, and is eventually destroyed in a sad, savage and shocking climax. Based on real events, including a massacre of ordinary citizens in these farming communities, The Man Who Would Come is an original, engrossing and very moving film, that confirms Giorgio Diritti as a major filmmaker in contemporary Italian cinema. hide

Putlocker When the Moors Ruled in Europe (2008)
How Islamic civilization tamed Western Europe Join British historian Bettany Hughes as she examines a long-buried chapter of European history--the rise and fall of Islamic culture in what is now Spain and Portugal. Although generations of Spanish rulers have tried to expunge this era from the historical record, recent archaeology and scholarship now shed fresh light on the Moors who flourished in Al-Andalus for more than 700 years. This fascinating two-part documentary explodes old stereotypes and offers shocking new insights. You’ll discover the ingenious mathematics behind Granada’s dazzling Alhambra Palace, trace El Cid’s lineage to his Moorish roots, and learn how the Iberian population willingly converted to Islam in droves. Through interviews with noted scholars, you’ll see how Moorish advances in mathematics, astronomy, art, and agriculture helped propel the West out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance. What emerges is a richly detailed portrait of a sensuous, inquisitive, and remarkably progressive Islamic culture in Christian Europe.
