Selected Videos and DVDs


YALSA has announced its 2008 Selected DVDs and Videos for Young Adults list. The list recognizes productions for technical merit, content, and interest to young adults ages 12-18. It is presented annually at the ALA Midwinter Meeting. The 2008 Selected DVDs and Videos for Young Adults Committee chose eight films, including such profound and diverse true stories as The Grace Lee Project, which explores the concepts of identity and belonging; Juries, an unflinching look at juveniles behind bars; and the creatively composed short film The Guarantee, which offers a humorous look at the impact our physical features can have on our opportunities. "It's a film-fabulous list! The films selected address the diverse needs of the teens served in our libraries as they come of age in this rapidly changing world," said Michael T. Wallace, committee chair.
