Fredric Jameson lectures on the "myths of the modern," pointing out many aspects of modernity that have been revived, such as ideological philosophy, including the study of ethics. He discusses political philosophy, political economy, and the resuscitation of aesthetics. He suggests that a humanities for the future requires that the vestiges of the past be swept away or at least recognized and identified for what they are. Then artists, like political innovators, must confront their primary dilemma, which is "the ideology and culture of consumption."

"Every day, 5 million children in the U.S. either witness or are victims of domestic violence. In the current system, a judge is more likely to award child custody to the violent father if the mother tries to escape the abusive relationship. In fact, fathers win up to 70 percent of contested cases even when they’ve been found guilty of domestic or sexual violence against the mother or the children. Most people are unaware of the shocking imbalance of power and how hard mothers have to fight to protect their children. In this bold and provocative film, mothers, lawyers, and domestic violence experts share intimate personal stories, hard-hitting facts and frank discussions about what is wrong with the system and how to fix it. [This film] features the indomitable 86-year-old Charlotta Harrison, who stayed 60 years in an abusive marriage to protect her son. She speaks hauntingly about the pressures and fears that made it so difficult to leave. You will also meet other women and children who have been separated, silenced, and pushed to extreme solutions in order to escape. Hear their stories and what they’re doing to fight back"-- Container.

"In 2013, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, a Quinnipiac University poll revealed that 91% of Americans support comprehensive background checks that could prevent thousands of similar gun violence tragedies nationwide. 91%: A Film about Guns in America allows for those permanently affected by the aftermath of gun violence to have a voice. The survivors of these tragedies tell their heartbreaking stories of loss, pain, and a heroic search for hope in a nation stalled in a senseless gun control debate. Every story details agony. Carolyn Tuft lost her daughter Kirsten Hinckley in the 2007 killing spree at Salt Lake City's Trolley Square Mall. Once physically active, Carolyn can barely take a few steps without exhaustion--doctors could not remove all the metal shot in her body. In Portland, Maine, Wayne and Judi Richardson lost their daughter Darien days after she was shot in her bedroom by an intruder. The gun that was used was purchased at a "private" gun show--later used to kill a young man a month after Darien's murder. In 1999, a Neo-Nazi shot six-year- old Joshua Stepakoff at the Los Angeles Jewish Community Center. Joshua continues to live on alert while attending college."-- Publisher's web site.

Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they've wandered in and out of people's lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame, and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt.
