Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history. Features: Fathers & Sons-Director Steven Caple Jr. and his cast walk us through the complexity of the ghost of Apollo, the flesh and blood of Ivan Drago and the toll it takes on their respective offspring, in and out of the ring. Casting Viktor Drago-Steven Caple Jr. and the cast share with us the choice in casting Florian Munteanu as Adonis Creed’s biggest challenge and a violent reminder of Rocky’s painful past. The Women of CREED II-Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad bring heart and soul to Steven Caple, Jr’s set, both in their performances on and off camera. The Rocky Legacy-Hosted by Dolph Lundgren, Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson and others, sit down and reminisce about the enduring resonance of Rocky and its evolution in Creed II. Deleted Scenes

Zambia - The Freedom Struggle and The Aftermath
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Zambia obtained independence in 1964 after a bitter freedom struggle with the colonial power Britain. This book covers that period and events that followed the attainment of self-rule. The story is biographical in context, and describes through the personal and political life of one of Zambia's most prominent freedom-fighters Sylvester Mwamba Chisembele, a social and political history which includes the intrigues and plots that emerged before and after independence. Sylvester Chisembele was born in Luapula Province, Zambia (then Northern Rhodesia). He was educated at Lubushi Seminary run by the Catholic White Fathers from where he entered the political campaign for freedom from colonial rule. He quickly rose to prominence and became a leading figure in the struggle. During this period he survived an assassination attempt on his life as well as a failed plot to charge him with treason instigated by the colonial administration. Amongst other important events a description is given of the circumstances surrounding the imposition of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland; the broken promises made to the Litunga, ruler of Barotseland; the visit of the British Prime Minister to the territory in the early 1960s and the subsequent boycott of the Monkton Commission. The colonial administration went to extraordinary lengths in order to keep the people in check. They attempted to involve the Prefect of Fort Rosebery Catholic Church who, misinformed, threatened excommunication to those who joined the freedom fight. Once the freedom struggle was underway, the story describes the indifference of the colonisers which escalated into a cruelty and hostility that saw people maimed, shot and killed. The book recalls the dismay of some British Members of Parliament who were appalled at the treatment, illegal arrests and imprisonment of freedom fighters and trade union miners' leaders. From the attainment of independence the book moves on to Zambian rule, the difficulties, the corruption and the endeavours made to reduce the power which a British-prepared constitution gave to one individual. That led to one-man dictatorship which took years to remove and still exists in principle today. After independence Chisembele played a prominent role in public life as a Member of Parliament holding various ministerial positions in Zambian governments from the outset in 1964 until 1983, after which time he continued as an advisor, opponent and outspoken critic of corruption in government administrations, which saw him victimized but unrelenting. The book covers the transition of power from Kenneth Kaunda after a groundswell of public opinion forced him to allow multi-party politics which in the following general elections saw him lose power after 27 years of one-man rule. The book also records the efforts that Chisembele made to bring some justice for the aging, neglected freedom fighters of Zambia when he attempted to obtain reparation from the British Government by taking a test case to the European Court of Human Rights whose ruling was that the incidents happened before the relevant Convention was in place, rendering the case inadmissible. An account is given of the events both political and personal up until the end of his life on February 5th 2006 and the aftermath.

Being Alive and Having to Die
7,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of the year's Top Ten Books on Religion and Spirituality (Booklist), Being Alive and Having to Die is the story of the remarkable public and private journey of Reverend Forrest Church, the scholar, activist, and preacher whose death became a way to celebrate life. Through his pulpit at the prestigious Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York, Reverend Forrest Church became a champion of liberal religion and a leading opponent of the religious right. An inspired preacher, a thoughtful theologian and an eloquent public intellectual, Church built a congregation committed to social service for people in need, while writing twenty five books, hosting a cable television program, and being featured in People, Esquire, New York Magazine, and on numerous national television and radio appearances. Being Alive and Having to Die works on two levels, as an examination of liberal religion during the past 30 years of conservative ascendancy, and as a fascinating personal story. Church grew up the son of Senator Frank Church of Idaho, famous for combating the Vietnam War in the 1960s and the CIA in the 1970s. Like many sons of powerful fathers, he rebelled and took a different path in life, which led him to his own prominence. Then, in 1991, at the height of his fame, he fell in love with a married parishioner and nearly lost his pulpit. Eventually, he regained his stature, overcame a long-secret alcoholism, wrote his best books-and found himself diagnosed with terminal cancer. His three year public journey toward death brought into focus the preciousness of life, not only for himself, but for his ministry. Based on extraordinary access to Church and over 200 interviews with family, friends, and colleagues, Dan Cryer bears witness to a full, fascinating, at time controversial life. Being Alive and Having to Die is an honest look at an imperfect man and his lasting influence on modern faith.
