Plot:
Go is the oldest game still played in its original form. In east Asia, it is hailed as one of mankind's greatest cultural achievements and considered both ancient art and national sport. At the very top, an elite cadre of professional Go players battles for dominance, broadcast to millions of fans - and remaining virtually unknown to the West. Now, for the first time, a small but determined band of American players enters the fray, launching their own professional system and struggling desperately to bring Go into the mainstream. Everything depends on the genius of the young competitors as they explore the endless complexities of the game. In the end, 'The Surrounding Game' is a story of obsession: a search for meaning beneath the patterns.

Release Name: Who Put The Klan In The Ku Klux Klan with Neil Oliver
Run Time: 58 minutes
Studio: Dreamscape Media
Actors: Neil Oliver
Source: Saw it on Amazon
Genre: Documentary
Link: History Channel
Plot:
Archaeologist and Historian, Neil Oliver has often celebrated the disproportionate impact Scots have had on the history of other countries.  He’s told before how Scottish ideas and energy helped build the American Dream, but now he explores how Scottish settlers shaped America’s racist nightmare.

In this surprising documentary Neil examines the links between racism today in the Deep South and the Scots who first occupied it. Throughout the 18th Century, hundreds of thousands of Scots emigrated to America. Some came willingly, but many resented being cleared from their land after the failed Jacobite rebellions or by aristocratic landowners. They embraced the opportunity that the arrival of cotton gave to become slave masters and wealthy plantation owners. When their world was threatened, the southern states opted for Civil War rather than give up their slaves.

With attitudes in the South embittered by defeat and fear of the now-freed slaves, six Scottish-American, former Confederate officers formed a fraternal society, and clan became Klan! The oldest and most feared racist hate group in America – the Ku Klux Klan – was born.

At the turn of the twentieth century, a racist novel by another Scots American became a best seller. The famous film based on it, “The Birth of a Nation” revitalized the Klan and its key images of the fiery cross and the hooded horsemen were etched in the American psyche forever.

Opinion: Absolutely love Neil Oliver's work, was kinda like wtf, when I saw this I'm used to his work on Ancient Britain,Origins of Scotland,etc and this just seemed so different. I never even knew there was any connection with the extremist and scottish peoples no matter how perverted. Very good work and enlightening; also love how he took a stance; I always hate people who try to seem unbias against such hate.

Art/Life: The Futurism Revolution the first Futurist documentary on Futurism
Director: Luca Verdone
Format: Color, NTSC, 16/9
Region: All Regions/Zones
Languages: English, Italian
Release Date: March 31, 2013
Length: 52 minutes + 40 minutes (bonus)

"Art/Life: The Futurism Revolution" is the first Futurist documentary on Futurism. Reenactments, international scholars and critics, hitherto unpublished archive images and works of art. A graphic opera, with new subjective and emotional viewpoint.
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti tells the story in the first person about the birth and evolution of the Futurist Movement and its visionary impact on art and society from the early 20th century until today. Dynamicity. Simultaneity. Speed. This is how the docudrama tells the story about the Futurist Movement, focusing on the intensity of communication in order to involve and surprise the spectator. To Marinetti, communication, in every form, was the fulcrum of the Futurist Avant-garde, the lever with which to revolutionize early 20th century society: every expression of creativity could be, and had to be, Futurist.
A true break with the past, illustrated with the works of the protagonists: from Boccioni to Balla, from Sant’Elia to Depero and the many others who joined the movement. The representation of a cross section of the European society of the early years of the century, and the explosive impact the Movement had on thought and on art.
Access to Marinetti’s family archives and the collaboration of Balla’s and Severini’s foundations and several museums granted an exclusive archive of images and factuals. Above all, the historical-scientific coordination of the poet’s granddaughter Francesca Barbi Marinetti, permitted the personal first person storytelling with accurate work of research and scriptwriting.

Jai Bhim Comrade (2011)



[Image: spJBkwNG_o.png]



For thousands of years, India’s Dalits were abhorred as “untouchables,” denied education and treated as bonded labour. By 1923, Bhimrao Ambedkar broke the taboo, won doctorates abroad and fought for the emancipation of his people. He drafted India’s Constitution and led his followers to discard Hinduism for Buddhism. His legend still spreads through poetry and song. In 1997, a statue of Dr. Ambedkar in a Dalit colony in Mumbai was desecrated with footwear. As angry residents gathered, police opened fire killing 10. Vilas Ghogre, a leftist poet, hung himself in protest. Jai Bhim Comrade shot over 14 years, follows the poetry and music of people like Vilas and marks a subaltern tradition of reason that, from the days of the Buddha, has fought superstition and religious bigotry.
