An illustrated discussion with George Gerbner and Jean Kilbourne. The video images in The Killing Screensrepresent the film and television carnage that has both attracted and repulsed students and others with increasing intensity over the years. The far-reaching effects of violence in the media reach the core of the individual’s sense of security and relationship to community in our modern culture. Young people’s notions about the world are shaped by these powerful images. One purpose of The Killing Screens is to empower students to be able to put this imagery and its effects in an analytical context. Designed for use in a broad range of educational settings, The Killing Screens includes scenes with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and others. It is paced and edited for viewing by students from high school through college, and also provides concrete information and advice for educators, parents, and individuals concerned with the cult of violence that engulfs our screens.

When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable "trophic cascade" occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.

The warnings of environmentalists have not been heeded. Perhaps it is time to take a look at the approach. Maybe our habitual responses to the issues are part of the problem. In this short video, Charles Eisenstein explains how taking a closer look at how we respond and communicate about the environmental crises might illuminate a new pathway forward.

On 14 February 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls.
On 14 February 2014, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE!
ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.
"Not only are girls seen as objects by other people, they learn to see themselves as objects.
It's time to rewrite the story, to widen the spectrum of representation."
We are sitting at the table. So many women. Some of us have been raped, some of us are volunteers, some of us are volunteers who have been raped.We meet-up just like this, once in a while – a community. Empowering each other in a struggle against a world that is fundamentally masculine. A scary world. A world that wounded and scared us, a world in which the word “equality” is an ideal, but not a reality. One of the women at the table offers me cake. A cake containing dairy.
I shake my head in denial. ‘No way, I’m vegan’.
In Deadly Persuasion, Jean Kilbourne exposes the manipulative marketing strategies and tactics used by the tobacco and alcohol industries to keep Americans hooked on their dangerous products. Illustrating her analysis with hundreds of current advertising examples from mainstream and trade sources, Kilbourne presents a compelling argument that these cynical industries have a clear and deep understanding of the psychology of addiction — an understanding they exploit to create and feed a life-threatening dependency on their products. Deadly Persuasion casts a critical eye on the corporate interests that lie behind the industries whose products kill more than 450,000 Americans each year.
