Tough Guise 2   Opens in new windowmust be used on campus or via the RCTC proxy server Catalog citation
In this update of the widely acclaimed Tough Guise, Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Contains graphic and extreme violence, explicit language, and partial nudity. Viewer discretion is strongly advised. 78 minutes. 2013.

Wrenched   Opens in new windowmust be used on campus or via the RCTC proxy server Catalog citation
Reveals how Edward Abbey's anarchistic spirit and riotous novels influenced and helped guide the nascent environmental movement of the 1970s and 1980s. Through interviews, archival footage and re-enactments, the film captures the outrage of Abbey's friends who were the original eco-warriors. In defense of wilderness, these early activists pioneered "monkeywrenching" - a radical blueprint for "wrenching the system." As exemplified by EarthFirst! in the early 1980s, direct action and civil disobedience grew in popularity.
