New York, NY : Criterion Collection, 
[disc 1]. Ugetsu [and special features] -- [disc 2]. Aru eiga kantoku no shōgai : shikaban = Kenji Mizoguchi: the life of a film director.
"By the time he made Ugetsu, Kenji Mizoguchi was already an elder statesman of Japanese cinema, fiercely revered by Akira Kurosawa and other younger directors of a younger generation. And with this exquisite ghost story, a fatalistic wartime tragedy derived from stories by Akinari Ueda and Guy de Maupassant, he created a touchstone of his art, his long takes and sweeping camera guiding the viewer through a delirious narrative about two villagers whose pursuit of fame and fortune leads them far astray from their loyal wives. Moving between the terrestrial and the otherworldly, Ugetsu reveals essential truths about the ravages of war, the plight of women, and the pride of men"--Container.

The Buddha's forgotten nuns
The Buddha's Forgotten Nuns is a documentary that reveals a little-known story about the Theravada tradition of Buddhism - that women cannot be fully ordained the same way that men can. The film asks the questions: Is Buddhism a religious movement based on equality? Or is it rooted in a male dominated culture? The Buddha himself invited women to join his group of disciples as female monks, or bhikkhunis, and allowed them to be ordained alongside men some 2500 years ago. What happened? This film traces how the role of women in Buddhism changed so drastically and why so few women's orders remain today. Featuring interviews with nuns and monks who are pulling down barriers and pushing for change in the monastic world.

"Father's Kingdom is the story of Father Divine, a charismatic and controversial character. His early life is veiled in obscurity. He built a church with over a million followers. He evolved his own unique theology -- the power of positive thinking. During the depths of the Great Depression, he fed thousands every day. He was an early voice for racial and gender equality. He operated over 70 businesses and hotels, creating thousands of jobs. He created dozens of racially integrated communities. He controlled vast wealth, but never accepted personal compensation. His detractors called him a fraud, but believers called him ... God. This is his story."--From publisher's website.

Burned : are trees the new coal?
directed, produced, and edited by Alan Dater and Lisa Merton
Marlboro, VT : Marlboro Films, 
"'Burned' is a feature-length documentary, which takes an unwavering look at the latest energy industry solution to climate change. The film tells the story of how woody biomass has become the fossil-fuel industry's renewable, green savior, and of the people and parties who are both fighting against and promoting its adoption and use. Through interviews with activists, experts, and citizens, along with verité-style footage shot across the U.S. and in the EU and UK, the film interweaves the science of climate change, the escalating energy-policy disputes, the dynamics of forest ecology, the biomass industry practices, the conflict between jobs and trees, and the actions of activists and citizens who are working to protect their own health, their communities, the forest, and the planet's climate. Woven together, the various stories present an intimate and visceral account of what is at this moment in time a critical, yet mostly unknown, national and international controversy."--Film website: https://burnedthemovie.com/

Columbia ; written by Robert Towne and Warren Beatty ; produced by Warren Beatty ; directed by Hal Ashby
[New York, New York] : Criterion Collection, 
"Shampoo gives us a day in the life of George (Warren Beatty), a Beverly Hills hairdresser and lothario who runs around town on the eve of the 1968 presidential election trying to make heads or tails of his financial and romantic entanglements. His attempts to scrape together the money to open his own salon are continually sidetracked by the distractions presented by his lovers--played brilliantly by Goldie Hawn, Julie Christie, and Lee Grant (in an Oscar-winning performance). Beatty dreamed up the project, cowrote the script with Robert Towne, and enlisted Hal Ashby as director, and the resulting carousel of doomed relationships is an essential seventies farce, a sharp look back at the sexual politics and self-absorption of the preceding decade"--Container.
