Le grand Cirque Calder 1927 by Jean Painlevé( Visual )

11 editions published between 1955 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Calder playfully manipulates his miniatures in front of a small audience of friends: pulling strings, activating levers, turning cranks and releasing springs. A horse trots around the ring as a trick rider catapults onto its back. Trapeze artists latch arms, fly through the air and then drop into a net. A lion roars before taking its handler's head in its mouth; an elephant blows sawdust from a pan. A dancer, naked but for some strategically placed fringe, seductively undulates. In the closing act two chariots and four fleet stallions set off on a sweaty race
Les yeux sans visage Eyes without a face by Georges Franju( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Génessier, a renowned surgeon, causes his beautiful daughter Christiane's face to be horribly mutilated in a car accident. To make his daughter whole, Dr. Génessier enlists his assistant Louise in a devious plot: she follows and befriends beautiful young women, so the doctor can remove their faces in painstaking operations, to graft onto Christiane. Sadly, her body rejects the new faces, and so she wears an emotionless mask to cover up her scars. Dr. Génessier's genuine feelings of love and guilt are balanced by his astonishing arrogance and hubris, pressing the moral and legal limits of science for a single, selfish interest. The results are surely going to be disastrous, and deadly

Surrealism and science the weird world of Jean Painlevé by Jean Painlevé( Visual )

6 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before Attenborough and Cousteau, there was Painlevé, the French pioneer of underwater revelation. Jean Painlevé trained as a scientist, but he came of age as Surrealism exploded in Paris and was soon closely involved with its rebellious spirit. In 1925 he made the first of nearly 200 scientific films, all of which are marked by a playful black humor and a rare sense of nature's hidden poetry. This selection from fifty years of passionate scientific enquiry includes all of Painlevé's most famous films."--Container
