Goddess Remembered

Access no.151

54min.1995

Donna Read, Margaret Pettigrew, NFB

This poetic documentary is a salute to 35 000 years of "pre-history," to the values of ancestors only recently
remembered, and to the goddess-worshipping religions of the ancient past. Goddess Remembered features
discussions among such well-know scholars as Merlin Stone, Carol Christ, Luisah Teish, Starhawk, Charlene
Spretnak, and Jean Bolen, who link the loss of goddess-centered societies with today's environmental crisis.
They propose a return to the belief in an interconnected life system, with respect for the earth and the female,
as fundamental to our survival. Goddess Remembered is the first part of a three part series which includes The
Burning Times and Full Circle.

Road Taken, The

Access no.152

48min.1996

Selwyn Jacobs, Dale Philips, Jerry Krepakevich, NFB

A nostalgic ride through history, The Road Taken documents the experiences of Blacks who worked as
sleeping-car porters on Canada's major railways from the early 1900s through the 1960s. There was a strong
sense of pride among the porter--they were well respected by their community, and they had steady work and

were able to provide to their families. Yet, harsh working conditions were a bitter reality and there were no
opportunities for promotion to other railway jobs. Finally, in 1955, porter Lee Williams charged the railway
companies and the porter's union with discrimination under the Canada Fair Employment Act, and Blacks
were able to work in other areas. Interviews, archival photos, and memorable film footage of train travel
combine with the music of noted Toronto jazz musician Joe Sealy, whose father was a porter, to reconstruct a
fascinating history that might otherwise have been forgotten.
