Amazon Says: Bringing a female perspective to the debate that's raging across the nation, A GIRL AND A GUN explores the intersection of 'girl power' and firepower. Filmed throughout the U.S., the film delves deep into the American gun world to show the relationship between women and their guns. The classic Hollywood portrayals of pistol packin' mamas, tomboy sharp shooters, sexually twisted femme fatales, and high-heeled, cold-blooded assassins are caricatures. In truth, the typical woman who hangs out at rifle ranges and keeps ammo in her purse is the girl-next-door, the single mom, a hard working sister or aunt. Maybe she's a realist or has learned tough lessons from life; either way, she cares about her personal safety and may find salvation, comfort or even something satisfying in possessing a gun. In a word, she is empowered. Breaking through the stereotypes, A GIRL AND A GUN reveals how some women have embraced this object whose history is deeply bound to men and masculinity. Punctuated with archival footage and expert commentary to provide a rich historical and cultural context, the film presents a nuanced yet empowering perspective on a deadly serious issue. Packaged in a 100% Certified Green Forestry Practices DVD Wallet less...

Amazon Says: Held Hostage is the real and terrifying story of ordinary foreign workers who came face to face with Al Qaeda at the In Amenas gas plant in Algeria in January 2013. The attack left over 37 foreign hostages dead, including people from the U.S., U.K., France, Japan, and Norway. As the horrific events unfolded over four days in the full glare of the world's media, Algerian special forces and helicopter gunships attacked the site in an effort to end the crisis. Bringing together exclusive interviews with survivors and their families, expert analysis of the key events, and powerful dramatic reconstruction of the terrifying four-day siege, this documentary raises many unanswered questions: How did a convoy of terrorists manage to travel undetected across hundreds of miles of desert and gain control of one of Algeria's most important and valuable gas facilities? And who was ultimately responsible for the safety of the workers? less...
