Die Vereinigten Staaten Anfang der 70er Jahre: Die Zeit des Vietnamkonfliktes, der Hippies und studentischer Unruhen. Der US-Präsident verhängt den Ausnahmezustand und erlaubt über ein Notstandgesetz, Kriegsgegner und Regimekritiker festzunehmen. In einer Wüstenzone südlich von Kalifornien begleitet eine britische Filmcrew die verurteilten Dissidenten der Strafgruppe 637, die sich statt einer mehrjährigen Haftstrafe für einen 3-tägigen Aufenthalt im Bear Mountain Strafpark entschieden haben, wo sie nun in einem tödlichen Katz-und-Maus-Spiel um ihre Freiheit kämpfen. In der sengenden Wüstenhitze müssen sie zu Fuß und ohne Verpflegung knapp 100km unwegsames Gelände hinter sich bringen, um die am Ziel aufgestellte amerikanische Flagge zu erreichen. Dabei werden die verzweifelten Widerständler von schwer bewaffneten Einsatzkräften gejagt - eine Tour durch die Hölle. Am Rande des Strafparks steht ein großes Militärzelt, in dem parallel dazu bereits die Angeklagten der nachfolgenden Strafgruppe 638 von einem Sondergericht verurteilt werden ..."Strafpark" ist radikales Polit-Kino und als verstörende Parabel auf staatliche Repression in Zeiten politischer Unruhe heute aktueller denn je.Darsteller:Carmen Argenziano, Kent Foreman, Patrick Boland, Katherine Quittner, Luke Johnson, Mark Keats, Mary Ellen Kleinhall, Scott Turner, Stan Armsted
Walk the ancient trade route to Kathmandu's great medieval bazaar, exploring an unusual but underrated part of the old city with Nepali writer Rabi Thapa.Thamel, Kathmandu’s designated tourist quarter, began as a medieval site of Buddhist learning connected to the now-defunct trans-Himalayan route between India and Tibet. Your tour traces these beginnings from Sohrakhutte in north Kathmandu before passing through Bhagwan Bahal, Narsingh Chowk, Chusya Bahal, Shree Gha and the marketplace of Asan. You will visit monuments old and new, accompanied by a fantastical cast of Tibetan demons, flying stupas and tooth goddesses as well as the equally adventurous set of warrior kings, traders, artisans and hippies who made Nepal the fantastic place that it is today.

Field notes from an age of extinction, tracking the ever-shifting meaning of America’s animals throughout history to understand the current moment. Journalist Jon Mooallem has watched his little daughter’s world overflow with animals - butterfly pajamas, appliquéd owls - while the actual world she’s inheriting slides into a great storm of extinction. Half of all species could disappear by the end of the century, and scientists now concede that most of America’s endangered animals will survive only if conservationists keep rigging the world around them in their favor. So Mooallem ventures into the field, often taking his daughter with him, to move beyond childlike fascination and make those creatures feel more real. Wild Ones is a tour through our environmental moment and the eccentric cultural history of people and wild animals in America that inflects it - from Thomas Jefferson’s celebrations of early abundance to the turn-of-the-last-century origins of the teddy bear to the whale-loving hippies of the 1970s. In America, Wild Ones discovers, wildlife has always inhabited the terrain of our imagination as much as the actual land. The journey is framed by the stories of three modern-day endangered species: the polar bear, victimized by climate change and ogled by tourists outside a remote, northern town; the little-known Lange’s metalmark butterfly, foundering on a shred of industrialized land near San Francisco; and the whooping crane as it’s led on a months-long migration by costumed men in ultralight airplanes. The wilderness that Wild Ones navigates is a scrappy, disorderly place where amateur conservationists do grueling, sometimes preposterous looking work; where a marketer maneuvers to control the polar bear’s image; and Martha Stewart turns up to film those beasts for her show on the Hallmark Channel. Our most comforting ideas about nature unravel. In their place, Mooallem forges a new and affirming visio 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Sanders.
