Call Number: Ask at circulation desk
Publication Date: 2004
Over three hundred miles south of the Philippine capital of Manila lies the tropical island of Siquijor, famous for its traditional healers, sorcerers, and witches. "Shamans of Siquijor" follows three healers to learn about their practices and beliefs. With guidance from the supernatural world, healers cure illnesses using medicinal herbs, incantations, a magical prayer wheel, and other means. Is folk healing still valuable for the social and spiritual life of the community or just a dying relic of old traditions? The documentary is an introduction to this healing culture. It is useful as a teaching tool when viewed as a companion piece to existing academic texts by anthropologists, which present in-depth analyses of healing and sorcery practices in the Philippines.

Tough guise 2 : violence, manhood & American culture - a Media Education Foundation production ; produced and directed by Jeremy Earp ; written by Jackson Ka
Call Number: VC #3311 Circulation Desk
Publication Date: 2013
In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed Tough Guise, pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and US political culture.
