Putlocker Outbreak Anatomy of a Plague (2010)
Patient Zero is a stewardess, stricken with what she thinks is chickenpox. She goes to ground in a Montreal hotel room. A few weeks later, she's back on the job, unaware of her role in an impending public health catastrophe. Pandemics have killed more people throughout history than all wars combined. They are unpredictable - and inevitable. Are we ready for the next big one? Outbreak: Anatomy of a Plague juxtaposes a 21st century scenario against the little-known story of the 1885 smallpox epidemic that devastated Montreal. Combining brisk narrative with rigorous research, it vividly evokes a modern city under siege, drawing eerie parallels with 1885. Confronted with social unrest, ethnic scapegoating and economic ruin, authorities struggle to maintain control - and to contain a deadly infection.

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
