The shape of darkness( Visual )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A haunting, poetic quality pervades this vast panorama of African art, which took two years of preparation and then nine months of filming by two camera teams to draw together. Region by region, the development of civilization and art is explored through art objects used in the daily life of the people. Masks and ceremonial objects were filmed in remote parts of Africa where the authentic dances still take place. African dance under European influence is rapidly losing its true form and meaning, so this film is a rare and notable record. Sections concentrate on the Nok culture of Northern Nigeria, the Sao people of the Chad, Ife and Benin, the Island of Goree, the Bawongo tribe, the Ivory Coast, the Abomey in Dahomey, the Senufo tribe, the Bamileke tribe (with dancers belonging to the Kanze Secret Society), the Dogon of Sudan, Batouffan Camaroons and Senegal
The origins of art in France( Visual )

Bringing together an unprecedented range of artefacts - jewels, animals in stone, carved figures and heads, abstract decorations on standing stones and primitive architecture - this film presents Celtic art in the context of Gallic civilization as a whole. The poetic and penetrating narrative by Max-Pol Fouchet stresses the art's supernatural roots in Druidic cults of gods, goddesses and heroes. For the Celts, we are told, 'the spirit and the head are inseparable,' and 'eternity is in the gaze.' Theirs is 'a religion of spiritual intensity,' of 'transcendence,' concerned with forces beyond human control. Fouchet hints at how the reduction of artistic forms to their expressive essentials relates to Scandinavian art of the period, to the distant oriental connections of the Celtic peoples, and indeed to modern Cubism and Abstraction. In Gallic art, we learn, abstraction and representation co-exist and merge. Fouchet's narration accompanies mesmeric sequences of intricate metalwork, ornaments, charms, 'souvenirs,' helmets (symbols of the French 'Gauloise' cigarette), and shots of desolate fortresses, tombs, and above all gazing, timeless heads. We learn how Gallic culture developed against the backdrop of a yet more ancient prehistory, recorded in cromlechs and stone circles that the sculptor Rodin came to consider 'the predecessors to the great Gothic cathedrals.' We learn too how, with the coming of the Romans, Romano-Gallic art extended to the building of bridges, aqueducts and ornamented, columned façades. It is thus out of an extremely rich brew of cultures that French art evolves
