A young black man meets his white girlfriend's parents at their estate, only to find out that the situation is much more sinister than it appears.


DVD and VHS Collection

The Pratt Institute Libraries have a collection of over 4,000 unique titles on DVD and VHS.  Topics covered by the collection include documentaries of all kinds with a specialization in art, architecture, and design, as well as an extensive collection of animation and live action feature films.  

With current Pratt identification, students faculty, and staff may check out all circulating DVDs for up to seven days with one renewal.  All DVDs are to be returned thirty minutes prior to the office closing on the day they are due. Items must be returned to the Visual and Multimedia Resources circulation desk located on the lower level of the library. Items should never be returned in the overnight drop box outside of the library.  Late Fees for DVDs are $1.00 per item per day.  For more information about circulation policies go to Borrow and Renew.

Although the majority of the video collection does circulate, VHS tapes, certain rare or valuable DVD titles, and some duplicate copies are designated non-circulating. Non-circulating items may be viewed in-house at  the VMR viewing stations or screening rooms or borrowed by faculty for one-day only to show in class.

Faculty may place any films from the collection or copies of their own videos on one-time or full semester reserve for their classes by contacting with the following information: title of the DVD as it appears in the library catalog, course name and number, date needed, and type of reservation (one-time or full semester). Please come by the VMR lower level front desk or email for more information.
