“Puppetry: Worlds of Imagination” from #AcademicVideoOnline and the Cinema Guild is a documentary that surveys revolutionary new developments in puppet theater.

The film profiles many of puppetry’s most imaginative contemporary artists, including:

• Basil Twist, who used bits of fabric, feathers, plastic and other materials in a 1,000-gallon tank of water to create a visually stunning underwater ballet
• Michael Curry, who created masks and puppets for the Broadway production of The Lion King, as well as the Super Bowl, the Olympics and the Millennium Celebration in New York City
• Cheryl Henson, daughter of Jim (The Muppets) Henson who discusses the biannual Jim Henson International Festival of Puppet Theatre

The film also takes viewers into one of puppeteer Janie Geiser's classes at the California Institute of the Arts, touches on new directions and new ideas in puppetry and discusses how puppetry is transforming opera, music, theater and dance.

Watch the Trailer for 'Losing Alaska' | Academic Video Online

In Newtok, Alaska, they’ve known for decades their future is in peril.

From #AcademicVideoOnline and Taskovski Films, ‘Losing Alaska’ tells the story of a small community dealing with a slow-moving disaster. They have seen the land dropping away on all sides and the river growing stronger year after year. The school – the highest building in the town – could be taking in water by 2019. They are losing up to 50 ft of land per year, every year.

Will it be the first American town lost to climate change?

The 116th Congress is indeed historic, with women representing nearly a quarter of the voting membership for the first time in #AmericanHistory. This is a significant increase from where things stood not all that long ago.

What events led to this historic outcome? What trailblazers came before the 116th Congress? In the documentary “MAKERS: Women Who Make America, Women in Politics” from #AcademicVideoOnline and PBS, Alfre Woodard narrates this important history. Profiles of women leaders include Margaret Chase Smith, Shirley Chisholm, Pat Schroeder, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Barbara Mikulski, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Barbara Boxer, Carol Moseley Braun and others.

Learn about critical turning points for women in politics such as Geraldine Ferraro’s nomination for Vice President (1984), Anita Hill’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee (1991) and Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Party nomination for President (2016).

Around the world, more than 62 million girls are not in school, according to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). As girls grow into adolescence, cultural and familial pressures often make it harder for them to stay in school, though educating women correlates to lower rates of infant mortality, increased GDP and greater economic security for families.

From #AcademicVideoOnline and CNN Films comes a new film about girls overcoming incredible challenges to achieve their educations and change their own lives, with contributions from First Lady Michelle Obama, Meryl Streep, Freida Pinto and CNN journalist Isha Sesay.

“To understand the culture, study the dance. To understand the dance, study the people.”

Chuck Davis (1937 – 2017) was an American choreographer and dancer focused on traditional African dance. His award-winning film ‘Chuck Davis, Dancing Through West Africa’ from #AcademicVideoOnline is a spirited celebration of African dance filmed in the villages and suburban compounds of Senegal and The Gambia. It is an intimate and inspiring portrait of African dance, celebrating life, movement and a sense of community.

The film focuses on three different tribes or ethnic groups (Wolof, Mandinka and Diola) in three different regions of Senegambia. It shows the warmth of the West African people and the importance of dance in their daily lives. It concludes with a stimulating performance in the U.S. by Chuck Davis and his integrated company, the African American Dance Ensemble, celebrating peace, love and mutual respect.

Professors: Show in class to illustrate African/American continuity and to set dance in its sociocultural context.
