The End of Poverty? (2008) asks if the true causes of poverty today stem from a deliberate orchestration since colonial times which has evolved into our modern system whereby wealthy nations exploit the poor.

American Tongues - A 1980's look at the accents that make up America, and their history. It's still common viewing in many sociology classes here in the States -

Kingdom of Shadows - A look at the American and Mexican drug trade from both sides of the border. Decent watch, a tiny bit flat here and there -

Alternative link (good till mid October or so) -

Farewell, Etaoin Shrdlu. A look at the last day of hot lead type setting at the New York Times -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFFxEjaMyu8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFFxEjaMyu8</a>.

Surprisingly interesting look at a tough, and demanding job that has mostly vanished. For those wondering, here's a explanation of the title - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etaoin_shrdlu . I'd never heard of ETAOIN SHRDLU, and though perhaps it was going to be an aged, old country immigrant printer that was retiring with the job.

Harlem, Voices, Faces - Hard edged Swedish documentary about the Harlem of the early 1970's, and the social, economic, and cultural divides that plague it. It was almost banned from American PBS because of the frank look it took at everything, that wound up upsetting some -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWATH6uPcf4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWATH6uPcf4</a>.

In English, with a few minor Swedish parts and subtitles. Interesting for those that even want a look at "old" New York.

Can we please make this thread a sticky? I think the amount of views warrants a 4th addition to the General Topics Board.
