"It was news that shook the English-speaking world. Celebrated British explorer Sir John Franklin and his crew of 128 men had perished in the Arctic ice during an ill-fated attempt to discover the Northwest Passage. More shocking, they had descended into madness and cannibalism. The report came in 1851, from John Rae, a Scottish doctor working for the Hudson's Bay Company. ... Set in the actual locations of Rae's journey, from his boyhood home in the remote Orkney Islands off Scotland's north coast, to the epic landscape of his Arctic expeditions, to the boardroom of the British Royal Navy-- the center of power of the British Empire-- Passage is a story of incredible sacrifice, stunning distortion of the truth and single-minded obsession"--Container. The film uses both dramatic action and documentary footage

Strand sous le drap noir by John Walker( Visual )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Portrait très illustré (et c'est tant mieux) de Paul Strand, photographe et cinéaste. L'homme, discret, est pisté derrière le photographe, dont l'oeuvre se caractérise par des cadrages très élaborés. Le film se termine par ces très belles images, où le photographe à 74 ans part pour le Ghana et sort de ses cadrages très sophistiqués. Il se libère du trépied, parcourt le pays appareil à la main. Sa dernière photo est superbe et tendrement symbolique, intitulée, "un oiseau au bord de l'espace."
