New Nonfiction DVDs at Kent District Library

If you’ve never browsed the nonfiction DVD selection at your local KDL branch, you are missing out on a great source of entertainment and information.  Please ask a KDL staff member for assistance in finding the nonfiction DVDs at your local branch. 

Here are a few titles that are new to the KDL collection:

Man vs. Wild Collection 1, featuring Bear Grylls  With little more than the clothes on his back, survival expert Bear Grylls goes toe-to-toe with some of Earth’s toughest, most remote environments in each edge-of-your-seat episode of Man vs. Wild. Grylls faces sweltering desert temperatures, icy, raging rivers and hungry predators as he fights for survival using techniques he learned as a British Special Forces soldier. You’ll never look at the great outdoors the same way again!





Car of the Future  How will the car of the future be powered? Will it run on hydrogen, batteries, ethanol, or some as-yet undiscovered technology? Find out as NOVA takes a look at the latest and greatest in the automotive industry. NPR’s “Car Talk” brothers, Tom and Ray Magliozzi, take viewers on a roller-coaster ride into the world of cars – examining new technologies and ideas about America’s most common form of transportation.





The 11th Hour  This environmental documentary resides at the polar opposite of escapist summer fare. Its mission: to firmly confront viewers about the indelible human footprint that humans have left on this planet and the catastrophic effects of environmental neglect and abuse.





My Kid Could Paint That  Official Selection of the 2007 Toronto Film Festival and the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.  This film documents the rise and fall of four-year-old artist Marla Olmstead.  Rumors that the young girl’s father might be doing the painting led to a backlash against the Olmstead family.  The film follows Marla and her parents over the course of a year. DVD special features provide some startling new material that may answer the questions raised in the original film.
