Saraband by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in Swedish and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Saraband is a revisitation to 1973's Scenes From a Marriage, as thirty-odd years have passed in the lives of former husband and wife Johan and Marianne. An inner prompting has sent Marianne to visit Johan in his ramshackle but finely appointed house in the middle of the forest, where she becomes a sounding board for the emotional wreckage she encounters there: Henrik (Johan's 61-year-old son) and Henrik's 19-year-old daughter, Karin. Henrik and Karin are musicians, both locked in grief over the death of wife and mother Anna two years earlier. Infused with the unsentimental, gentle humor of distanced perspective and thoughtful reflection, this is another of Bergman's provocative expositions into the most fundamental human need: connection
Burma VJ reporting from a closed country ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Anders Østergaard's ... documentary ... is a rare and exceptional look into the 2007 uprising in Burma (Myanmar) where 100,000 people, including thousands of Buddhist monks, peacefully took to the streets to protest the country's repressive regime that has held them hostage for over forty years. During the uprising, the military turned their guns on the peaceful protestors, and blood spilled in the streets. Foreign news reporters were banned and the internet shut down. But Democratic Voice of Burma, a collective of thirty anonymous and underground citizen video journalists (VJs), heroically bore witness to the historic events and secretly videotaped what they saw. Through a dedicated network of supporters, they smuggled the footage out of the country, where it was broadcast via satellite to a world horrified by the violence against a people fighting for democracy. Risking torture and life imprisonment, the VJs vividly documented the brutal clashes with the military and undercover police -- even after they became targets of the authorities. Burma VJ represents their inspiring stories of courage and hope and the undying spirit of a people fighting for freedom."--Container
Bergman Island Ingmar Bergman on Fårö Island, cinema and life ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in Swedish and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Filmed over several weeks, "Bergman Island" is an impressively intimate look at the waning hours of one of cinema's true legends. Granted unprecedented access to the man himself, Marie Nyreröd captures stories from Bergman that cover his entire life to that point. Bergman is remarkably candid, whether he's discussing his abusive father or his last directorial effort, Saraband. Even those not particularly interested in Bergman's cinema will find something interesting in a man who has lived so long, triumphed in as a director in radio, television and on stage, whilst completely mastered the medium of film, leaving a legacy for the ages

Stealing history by Ola Flyum( Visual )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The looting of ancient artifacts from the troubled regions of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is an ongoing scandal. This film reveals the closely knit network of looters, smugglers, dealers, collectors and academics which encourages this illegal trade. The huge scale of the thefts of precious artworks like "magic" bowls from Mesopotamia and the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls of Buddhism, have led to police investigations in Britain, Norway and Afghanistan. Since the film was shown in Europe, one of the world s largest collectors, was forced to return some of the articles to their countries of origin. Archaeolgist Dr. Erika Hunter had been studying artifacts from Iraq since the late 1980s. In the early 1990s she was offered a huge cache to study. She and Dr. Robert Knox, the Asia Curator at the British Museum, are seen trying to establish the provenance of the items, suspecting they had been stolen from the area near Peshawar. In the Bamiyan Valley, where the famous buddhas were destroyed, we see goatherds digging for antiquities which they can sell for what seems like fortunes to them. As much as academics argue about the provenance of the artifacts, they still want to study and write about them. It is impossible to stop the looting now

Dance on screen ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this revelatory new documentary, director Reiner E. Moritz poses the question: How has the media influenced dance in the twentieth century and vice versa? Over this period an extensive archive of beautiful choreography, performed by the finest dancers has accumulated on film and television, resulting in a major dispersion of dance through the media. In addition, new art forms such as dance movies and ballet films have emerged from this development in moving images, where dance is created specifically for the camera. 'A History Of Dance On Screen' contains an impressive amount of archive footage featuring the greatest dancers and choreographers of the twentieth and twenty first centuries, framed by in-depth interviews with great personalities of the contemporary dance scene--featuring Alvin Ailey, Pina Bausch, Maurice Béjart, Matthew Bourne, Margot Fonteyn, Martha Graham, John Neumeier, Rudolf Nureyev, Anna Pavlova, Roland Petit, Sasha Waltz and many others"--Arthaus website
