White settlers who came to the Port Angeles area in Washington state built numerous dams along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park, which supplied hydroelectric power and lake recreation, but also destroyed the salmon runs that were the river’s literal lifeblood and offered subsistence to local Native American tribes. By the 1960's and 70's, tribal members were clashing with authorities over their fishing rights to nearly extinct local fish. With the aging dams required maintenance near the 100-year mark, a grassroots movement arose (spearheaded by Mountain in the Clouds writer Bruce Brown, one of several regional authors interviewed), urging that the dam system dismantled. Ultimately (and remarkably, via a presidential order by George H.W. Bush), a plan was implemented to remove the dams, but the local authorities fought it for many years before reaching a consensus solution. Dulcet-Toned narrator Debbe Hirata literally speaks for the river here in the noteworthy environmental documentary with rare happy ending. Recommended.\" - Video Librarian\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Return of the River is highly recommended for telling a complicated tale of environmental activism, community education, and intergovernmental cooperation in a clear and caring manner. The cinematography and editing create a vehicle that allow the viewer to empathize with the communities involved and the care in which the various interests of the Native Americans, industries, municipalities, the National Park Service and other governmental organizations came to an agreement that benefitted all parties as well as a commitment to returning the Elwha to as near its natural state as possible. The actions of those involved in agreeing to restore the Elwha River watershed may provide a workable template for other restorations. In addition, the film is dramatic, moving, and not to be missed.

White settlers who came to the Port Angeles area in Washington state built numerous dams along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park, which supplied hydroelectric power and lake recreation, but also destroyed the salmon runs that were the river’s literal lifeblood and offered subsistence to local Native American tribes. By the 1960's and 70's, tribal members were clashing with authorities over their fishing rights to nearly extinct local fish. With the aging dams required maintenance near the 100-year mark, a grassroots movement arose (spearheaded by Mountain in the Clouds writer Bruce Brown, one of several regional authors interviewed), urging that the dam system dismantled. Ultimately (and remarkably, via a presidential order by George H.W. Bush), a plan was implemented to remove the dams, but the local authorities fought it for many years before reaching a consensus solution. Dulcet-Toned narrator Debbe Hirata literally speaks for the river here in the noteworthy environmental documentary with rare happy ending.

The cinematography and editing create a vehicle that allow the viewer to empathize with the communities involved and the care in which the various interests of the Native Americans, industries, municipalities, the National Park Service and other governmental organizations came to an agreement that benefitted all parties as well as a commitment to returning the Elwha to as near its natural state as possible. The actions of those involved in agreeing to restore the Elwha River watershed may provide a workable template for other restorations. In addition, the film is dramatic, moving, and not to be missed.

In Haiti, Davis shadows the gregarious Madam Bwa—a traditional birth attendant—on her rounds through twisting, poverty-stricken streets. Despite the lack of formal medical training, Madam Bwa has helped to deliver 12,000 babies over the course of 32 years. In Cambodia, Pum Mach—a soft-spoken supervising midwife for 22 years—meets with several patients, including a 19-year-old with malaria who will need a cesarian section, but lacks the funds for surgery (Pum Mach comes up with a solution, but the delivery presents additional complications). Other medical dilemmas encountered involve an impacted placenta, a stillborn fetus, and a gangrenous uterus (doctors successfully remove the damaged portion of the organ). As Ethiopian OB\/GYN resident Goitom Berhane laments, most of these problems are preventable, but a lack of education and reliable transportation transforms minor issues into major ones. Fortunately, Ehtiopia also has health extension workers, such as Hirity Belay—a tracksuit-sporting high school graduate with a year of training—who travels to remote villages on foot to assist pregnant women with nutrition, hygiene, and other concerns. Without the kind of dedicated professionals who appear in Davis's documentary, the situation would be worse, but she makes it clear that the women of developing nations need far more care than they've been receiving. Viewers should be forewarned that SISTER is fairly graphic, with frequent nudity and some squirm-inducing surgical procedures.

In North America, the way a Muslim woman dresses is her personal choice, but that choice, which includes whether or not to wear hijab to cover her hair, is often met with both approval and criticism. The film Between Allah \u0026amp; Me (and Everyone Else) explores the challenges of Farida, Shaila, Naima, and Sarah, four Torontonian Muslim women making decisions about their personal dress codes. When these women decide to start or stop wearing hijab, they cannot foresee the range of reactions other people will have to their choices. The film follows the women’s personal journeys and their interactions with different members of society, and in doing so reveals that the piece of fabric called hijab carries many diverse meanings and messages. As these women try to follow their faith and their hearts at the same time, the film unveils the intricate and complex effects of hijab on Muslim women, their families and communities, and the larger multicultural society in which they live.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/173013808?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/Laurelstogether_medium.png?15456611009104511590\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eReviews \/ Quotes:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“[Kyoko] truly crafted a documentary… We saw fascinating character arcs and felt quite close to your characters…  film that should travel to festivals and beyond.” \u003ci\u003e– \u003c\/i\u003eMarc Glassman, Film critic, publisher and professor, Ryerson University, MFA in Documentary Media program\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“Between Allah and Me not only deals with a timely topic, but one that has great personal relevance to me.

In North America, the way a Muslim woman dresses is her personal choice, but that choice, which includes whether or not to wear hijab to cover her hair, is often met with both approval and criticism.

When these women decide to start or stop wearing hijab, they cannot foresee the range of reactions other people will have to their choices.
