Bullying Titles:

Bully Dance
VHS   $1.13    
DVD   $1.62
Grades P-9
The "stick people" in Bully Dance are imaginary, but this gritty tale of childhood bullying is all too familiar. Like the dance beat pulsating throughout the film, the bully's intimidation of a smaller victim is unrelenting. Whild this video offers no simple solutions, it does compel viewers - teachers, parents and children - to take stock of their actions and to find ways to end the painful experience of peer abuse. A study guide is available online at: http://www.nfb.ca/guides. (2000 ; 11 min.)

 

The Drawing
VHS   $1.13    
DVD   $1.62
Grades 7-9
A young boy encounters critics' barbs early when his teacher and classmates ridicule his pencil sketch of a dinosaur. Staying true to his artistic temperament literally takes the 10-year old to society's fringes and makes his re-entry into playground politics an exercise in exile. Beautifully and starkly shot, this stylish drama deftly accesses the intense focus of a child's imagination. (2004 ; 20 min.)

 

In Other Words 
VHS     $1.16
DVD      $1.62
Grades 7-12
Name-calling and cruel language hurt, say the teens who speak in this documentary video. Homophobic language is a common verbal put-down among young people, but many adults feel uncomfortable responding. In Other Words speaks directly to teens and offers a valuable tool to teachers, counselors and community youth leaders who want to explore the homophobic language heard in schools and other youth hangouts--the words themselves, their origins, how young people feel about them, and how to overcome the hurt and anger they cause. Moving interviews with gay, lesbian and transgender teens provide first-hand accounts. Weaving together slang, music media images and dictionary definitions, the film examines how language shapes attitude. The video is designed to foster change, to ensure that schools are safe places where youth can learn in a climate of respect. Teacher preview recommended. (2001 ; 27 min.)

VHS    $1.16
DVD      $1.62

Killing Us Softly 4
VHS   $1.13    
DVD   $1.62
Grades 9-12 ; Media Studies
In this new, highly anticipated update of her pioneering Killing Us Softly series, the first in more than a decade, Jean Kilbourne takes a fresh look at how advertising traffics in distorted and destructive ideals of femininity. The film marshals a range of new print and television advertisements to lay bare a stunning pattern of damaging gender stereotypes -- images and messages that too often reinforce unrealistic, and unhealthy, perceptions of beauty, perfection, and sexuality. By bringing Kilbourne's groundbreaking analysis up to date, Killing Us Softly 4 stands to challenge a new generation of students to take advertising seriously, and to think critically about popular culture and its relationship to sexism, eating disorders, and gender violence. MATURE CONTENT - TEACHER PREVIEW RECOMMENDED (2010 ; 45 min.)


Picture Perfect
VHS   $1.25    
DVD   $1.62
Grades 7-9 ; Media Studies
This documentary video explores and challenges stereotypical and distorted media images of girls and women. Diverse girls and women -- who are often unheard in the media -- candidly share their experiences and feelings about media depictions and their impact. By weaving together interviews, media images, cut-away footage, text, music, and sound, this documentary artfully challenges and depicts the messages that women and girls are sent daily in our media-saturated culture. Useful in a variety of subject areas from health to lifeskills, it fosters critical-thinking and media literacy. Most of all it empowers young women viewers to become critical consumers of mass culture with the ability to recognize the unrealistic standards that media messages can impose on them. (2002 ; 40 min.)

 

Shredded

And as their own bodies change, boys realize that muscles don't just pop off their frames naturally. For some boys, this leads to anxiety and an obsessive desire to change their image. This film reveals the rists some teenage boys are willing to take to achieve the ideal male shape, exploring supplement use and the tempation of steroids. With complete frankness, the boys relate their own experiences, desires and motivations to the audience, who must draw their own conclusions. This video is appropriate for use with grades 9-12. A user guide for this film is available at http://www.nfb.ca/guides. (2005 ; 22 min.)

 

Straightlaced
VHS   $1.16    
DVD   $1.62
Grades 9-12
With a fearless look at a highly charged subject, Straightlaced unearths how popular pressures around gender and sexuality are confining American teens. Their stories reflect a diversity of experiences, demonstrating how gender role expectations and homophobia are interwoven, and illustrating the different ways that these expectations connect with culture, race and class. From girls confronting media messages about culture and body image to boys who are sexually active just to prove they aren't gay, this fascinating array of students opens up with brave, intimate honesty about the toll that deeply held stereotypes and rigid gender policing have on all our lives. (2009 ; 67 min.)
