** The search engine works best with simple, broad searches. Instead of seaching for "what is the link between education and incarceration", search under "prisons" and see if any of the results contain information about education (which some of them do).

1. FREE TRADE SLAVES (external link)
Abstract: This film discusses free trade zones and the problems they have wrought in human terms. Filmed on location in Sri Lanka, El Salvador, Mexico, and Morocco, it exposes companies that pay little in taxes; exploit cheap labor, especially women; and reap significant profits by selling the products at high prices in other parts of the world.
Resource Type: Film

2. Life and Debt (external link)
Abstract: Utilizing excerpts from the award-winning non-fiction text "A Small Place" by Jamaica Kincaid, Life & Debt is a woven tapestry of sequences focusing on the stories of individual Jamaicans whose strategies for survival and parameters of day-to-day existence are determined by the U.S. and other foreign economic agendas. By combining traditional documentary telling with a stylized narrative framework, the complexity of international lending, structural adjustment policies and free trade will be understood in the context of the day-to-day realities of the people whose lives they impact.
