Everything Must Fall - The High Cost Of Free Education (DVD): Rehad Desai Everything Must Fall - The High Cost Of Free Education (DVD)
Rehad Desai
R130 R99 Discovery Miles 990 Save R31 (24%) In stock

An unflinching look at the #FeesMustFall student movement that burst onto the South African political landscape in 2015 as a protest over the cost of education.

The story is told by four student leaders at Wits University and their Vice Chancellor, Adam Habib, a left-wing, former anti-apartheid student activist. When Habib’s efforts to contain the protest fail, he brings 1000 police on to campus. There are dire consequences for the young leaders. By blending dramatic unfolding action with a multi-protagonist narrative, much of the drama lies in the internal struggles the activists have around the weight of leadership.

Threaded through the film is a pulse of anticipation, shared across the generational divide, that somehow these youth have reached breaking point and won’t back down until they achieve the kind of social transformation that previous generations had long given up on.

Liverpool Football Club returned to the pinnacle of continental football at the end of the 2018-19 season, lifting their sixth European Cup on the back of a record-breaking league campaign. Having watched their team rack-up a stunning 97 points and take the battle for the Premier League crown to the final day, Kopites descended upon Madrid to draw the curtain on one of the finest season’s in their history. And, in the heat of the Spanish capital, Jurgen Klopp’s men stepped out in the Champions League final for the second year running.

This time it was Tottenham Hotspur who stood in their way and, this time, the famous old trophy returned to Anfield after a 14-year absence. This was a season in which the Reds were firm and thrilling throughout, with a defence as solid as any in the club’s rich history and a strike-force that struck fear into teams throughout Europe. It was a season in which technical superiority and a collective will to win produced unforgettable results and, at times, defied belief.

Disc 1: Season Highlights of every game.

Disc 2: Champions League - Semi-Final 2nd Leg vs Barcelona (Full Game), and Champions League - Final vs Tottenham (Full Game)

Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, Jimmy Chin
R157 R115 Discovery Miles 1 150 Save R42 (27%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

From award-winning documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, the directors of Meru, comes Free Solo a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world s most famous rock... the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park... without a rope. Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold's climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge places his story in the annals of human achievement.

Free Solo is an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who challenges both his body and his beliefs on a quest to triumph over the impossible, revealing the personal toll of excellence. As the climber begins his training, the armor of invincibility he s built up over decades unexpectedly breaks apart when Honnold begins to fall in love, threatening his focus and giving way to injury and setbacks. Vasarhelyi and Chin succeed in beautifully capturing deeply human moments with Honnold as well as the death-defying climb with exquisite artistry and masterful, vertigo-inducing camerawork.

The result is a triumph of the human spirit that represents what The New York Times calls "a miraculous opportunity for the rest of us to experience the human sublime."

Sixty-four games, three pieces of silverware and a return to the Champions League. At the conclusion of Jose Mourinho's first year in charge at Old Trafford, United fans knew they had witnessed something good.

The arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the return of Paul Pogba grabbed the headlines as the season approached. Ten months later, on an emotional night in Stockholm, the unity created between players and supporters was never more evident as the Reds won the Europa League to complete the clean sweep of all major trophies. They also captured the Community Shield and the EFL Cup in a pulsating final at Wembley. Wayne Rooney surpassed Sir Bobby's goalscoring record, while the spirit of Sir Matt lived on as yet more talented youngsters made their assured bow on the first team stage.

It was a season when United rediscovered their strut and swagger, whilst confirming their status as English football's most successful ever club.

They Shall Not Grow Old (DVD): Peter Jackson They Shall Not Grow Old (DVD)
Peter Jackson
R333 Discovery Miles 3 330 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there.

Driven by a personal interest in the First World War, Jackson set out to bring to life the day-to-day experience of its soldiers. After months immersed in the BBC and Imperial War Museums’ archives, narratives and strategies on how to tell this story began to emerge for Jackson. Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime.

(The film was created using original footage of World War I from the Imperial War Museum's archives, most of it previously unseen, alongside audio from BBC and IWM interviews of British servicemen who fought in the conflict. Most of the footage has been colourised and transformed with modern production techniques, with the addition of sound effects and voice acting to be more evocative and feel closer to the soldiers' actual experiences.)

R55 Discovery Miles 550 In stock

In 1962 four young men John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to form the 20th century musical phenomenon known as The Beatles.

The band stormed Europe in 1963, and, in 1964, they conquered America. Their groundbreaking world tours changed global youth culture forever and, arguably, invented mass entertainment as we know it today. All the while, the group were composing and recording a series of extraordinarily successful singles and albums. However the relentless pressure of such unprecedented fame, that in 1966 became uncontrollable turmoil, led to the decision to stop touring. In the ensuing years The Beatles were then free to focus on a series of albums that changed the face of recorded music.

Master storyteller and Oscar winner, Ron Howard, explores this incredible journey in his own unique way: How did The Beatles do this? How did they cope with all the fame and pressure? How did they not only survive, but go on to revolutionise popular music?

With original interviews, footage, staggering live performances, and the intimate study of character that Ron Howard is known for, he puts us right inside this extraordinary adventure, answering the question everyone always wants to know: What was it like to be there?!!
