Hi there -

A teacher is asking for a video that deals with the issue of high school students 
and guns. He came up with "Bowling for Columbine," but wants to avoid the politics 
implicit (and explicit!) in that choice. (He's teaching "Parrot in the Oven" -- if 
having the literary link helps spark anyone's creativity!) Can anyone recommend a 
video that deals with high school students and guns? 

Same teacher, different request: He wants to show films to supplement the teaching 
of "The Kite Runner," and has found two film titles online, but can't find any 
copies to buy or rent. Can you locate them, or suggest sites (other than Scarecrow 
Video or Amazon) where he might have some luck?
"Afghanistan Unveiled" and "Breaking the Silence." Any recommendations of other 
film titles that would cover Afghani geography/culture, religious issues, child 
refugees, and the role of women in Afghanistan.

Thanks very much!
