Κοντραμπάντα - Contrabanda


Είδος: Ταινία μικρού μήκους, Ντοκυμαντέρ
Γλώσσα: Ελληνικά
Υπότιτλοι: Αγγλικά (english subtitles)
Χρονολογία: 2004
Σκηνοθεσία: Νίκος Θεοδωσίου
Διάρκεια: 27'

Στις ατέλειωτες περιπλανήσεις στις κινηματογραφικές μνήμες, μία λέξη ερχόταν ξανά και ξανά στις αφηγήσεις για τους πλανόδιους: Contrabanda. Δεν ήταν αυτό που φανταζόμαστε σαν έννοια της λέξης κοντραμπάντο. Το λαθρεμπόριο που αναφέρονται ήταν γένους θηλυκού: κοντραμπάντα. Δεν ήταν λαθραία φορτία σε πλοία, είχε να κάνει με εικόνες. Ψάξαμε για τους κατάλληλους ανθρώπους, οι οποίοι ξεπεράσανε τις αναστολές τους και μας μιλήσανε...   Throughout the endless wanderings through cinema memories, there was one word that kept recurring in the stories told by the traveling projectionists: contrabanda. But it had nothing to do with what we imagine as contraband. The smuggling they were referring to was female: contrabanda. It wasn’ t about illegal shipments; it was about pictures. We searched for the right people, who eventually overcame their reservations and spoke to us...

Sex Slaves


Είδος: Ντοκυμαντέρ
Γλώσσα: Αγγλικά
Υπότιτλοι: Ελληνικά 
Χρονολογία: 2005 , US
ΣκηνοθεσίαRic Esther Bienstock, Credits
Διάρκεια: 56'





Δουλεία.
Ένα απ'τα θαύματα του δυτικού "πολιτισμού". Ακόμα πιο θαυμαστός ο τρόπος με τον οποίο "καταργήθηκε", εφόσον εμποτίστηκε στην καθημερινότητά μας. Η σύγχρονη δουλεία μεταφράζεται πλέον ως η εξημέρωση του ανθρώπου σε ένα σύστημα που εγκληματεί νόμιμα επάνω του. Μια τέτοια μορφή σκλαβιάς είναι δυσδιάκριτη αφού ασκείται κατά κύριο λόγο στον νου, αφοπλίζοντας την συνείδησή του.

Υπάρχουν όμως και σύγχρονες μορφές δουλείας που δεν διαφέρουν σε τίποτα από τις κοινές και "ξεπερασμένες" όπως θα θέλαμε να νομίζουμε. Το sex trafficking είναι η εμπορία ανθρώπων, κατά κύριο λόγω γυναικών, που πωλούνται υπό καθεστώς αιχμαλωσίας σε μαστροπούς. Σκοπός δεν είναι άλλος απ'την σεξουαλική εκτόνωση των πελατών σε σκλάβες, οι οποίες υπόκεινται καθημερινά σε αλλεπάλληλους βιασμούς.

Στο ντοκυμαντέρ "Sex Slaves" της σειράς Frontline, θα παρακολουθήσετε τον κόσμο του trafficking εκ των έσω, ακολουθώντας τον Viorel. Ο Viorel αναζητά την έγκυο σύζυγό του, η οποία απήχθη από σωματέμπορους στην Τουρκία και πουλήθηκε για 1000 δολάρια. Θα διεισδύσει στον υπόκοσμο, με κρυφές κάμερες και μικρόφωνα όπου θα καταγράψει ότι πληροφορία ίσως τον οδηγήσει στην αιχμάλωτη πλέον Katia, πριν χαθεί δια παντός στον λαβύρινθο της σεξουαλικής εκμετάλλευσης.

Αφιερωμένο εξαιρετικά στα αντράκια - βιαστές της μπουρδελότσαρκας.

You Are All Diseased - George Carlin

What? You want something funny watch George Carlin., 7 January 2005
9/10
Author: Andrea O from United States

George Carlin, a legendary philosopher (I know I said philosopher), of all times. He truly looks at the world and everything around the world; he studies the people and their actions, the beliefs, and even the simplistic everyday things that would never cross most peoples minds. George Carlin, in this movie and most of his stand-ups, does not just make jokes, he goes in-depth to the bottom of the problems of our world, and he, with his majestic forms of speech and humor allows us to truly ponder our life.

In "you are all diseased" George Carlin doesn't just rant about everything and anything, he allows the audience to truly look at the big picture and find the ironic and hilarious aspects that we will soon be angry about if we truly think about them.

Finally, I liked this show sooo much that I understood that its not even just about being angry at the world, its about loving life and finding ways to live and hating things that demean it. Strangely I am finding this from a man that has aged and would normally be slowly getting less effective, but in reality he is just getting better and smarter every time.

Stanford Prison Experiment (Documental)

Είδος: Ντοκυμαντέρ
Γλώσσα: English
Υπότιτλοι: Ελληνικά
Χρονολογία: 1992 , US
Σκηνοθεσία: Ken Musen
Διάρκεια: 29'

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Stanford prison experiment was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. The experiment was conducted in 1971 by a team of researchers led by Psychology Professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. Twenty-four undergraduates were selected out of 70 to play the roles of both guards and prisoners and live in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. Those selected were chosen for their lack of psychological issues, crime history, and medical disabilities, in order to obtain a representative sample. Roles were assigned based on a coin toss.[1]
Prisoners and guards rapidly adapted to their roles, stepping beyond the boundaries of what had been predicted and leading to dangerous and psychologically damaging situations. One-third of the guards were judged to have exhibited "genuine" sadistic tendencies, while many prisoners were emotionally traumatized and two had to be removed from the experiment early. After being confronted by Christina Maslach, a graduate student in psychology whom he was dating,[2] and realizing that he had been passively allowing unethical acts to be performed under his direct supervision, Zimbardo concluded that both prisoners and guards had become too grossly absorbed in their roles and terminated the experiment after six days.[3]
Ethical concerns surrounding the famous experiment often draw comparisons to the Milgram experiment, which was conducted in 1961 at Yale University by Stanley Milgram, Zimbardo's former college friend. Tom Peters and Robert H. Waterman Jr wrote in 1981 that the Milgram experiment and the Stanford prison experiment were frightening in their implications about the danger which lurks in the darker side of human nature.[4]

Conclusions

The Stanford experiment ended on August 20, 1971, only six days after it began instead of the fourteen it was supposed to have lasted. The experiment's result has been argued to demonstrate the impressionability and obedience of people when provided with a legitimizing ideology and social and institutional support. It is also used to illustrate cognitive dissonance theory and the power of authority.
In psychology, the results of the experiment are said to support situational attribution of behaviour rather than dispositional attribution. In other words, it seemed the situation caused the participants' behaviour, rather than anything inherent in their individual personalities. In this way, it is compatible with the results of the also-famous Milgram experiment, in which ordinary people fulfilled orders to administer what appeared to be damaging electric shocks to a confederate of the experimenter.
Shortly after the study had been completed, there were bloody revolts at both the San Quentin and Attica prison facilities, and Zimbardo reported his findings on the experiment to the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary.

From http://www.prisonexp.org/documentary.htm

Guaranteed to stimulate critical thinking and discussion, the film features archival footage, flashbacks, post-experiment interviews with the prisoners and guards, and comparisons with real prisons. It documents the surprise arrests by city police and vividly shows the pathology that developed among participants, forcing the two-week study to be terminated after only 6 days. Viewer-tested previews reveal its value across many high school and college courses and among a variety of community audiences, including correctional, judicial, military, and civic.
