Come back, Africa by Lionel Rogosin ( Visual )
27 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1957, Rogosin travelled to South Africa and created a powerfully, moving drama exposing the harsh reality of life under the system apartheid. Filmed secretly under the noses of the feared South African police, Rogosin, his crew, and cast risked arrest and deportation. Miriam Makeba was banned from her country after travelling to Venice for the movie's premiere. The scenes shot in the vibrant black ghetto of Sophiatown are precious images of a lost world. Rogosin took the fight for equality to his homeland with Black roots, his documentary on African American life. The extraordinary cast, including Reverend Frederick Douglass Kirkpatrick, attorney and feminist activist Florynce "Flo" Kennedy, musicians Jim Collier, Wende [i.e. Wendy] Smith, Larry Johnson and Reverend Gary Davis, tell stories of heartbreak and despair while their songs blow the roof off the rafters. The film combines tales of oppression with hauntingly beautiful images of the faces of black men, women and children

Good times, wonderful times ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gigantesque maelstrom d'images, "Good Times, Wonderful Times" se définit comme un acte politique dressé contre l'oubli. Dans l'impossibilité de réaliser une oeuvre anti-guerre aux États-Unis sans être taxé d'antipatriotisme, Lionel Rogosin doit s'exiler et tourne au Royaume-Uni. Monté à partir d'archives saisissantes récoltées aux quatre coins du monde, le film montre les dégâts causés par les guerres du XXe siècle et annonce la proximité d'un nouveau cataclysme, d'ordre nucléaire cette fois. Dialogue entre le passé et l'avenir, "Good Times, Wonderful Times" est une oeuvre radicale qui porte en elle toute la contestation des anéées 60."

"Siobhán McKenna, celebrated Irish actress who has played in Shaw's St. Joan in New York and in The letter on TV, does scenes from Irish plays. She will exhibit the versatility demanded of a performer by the Abbey Theater in Dublin, where she has worked. The plays will include Lennox Robinson's The whiteheaded boy (1916) and Is life worth living (1933), and Sean O'Casey's Juno and the paycock (1924) and The plough and the stars. John Millington Synge will be represented by his Deirdre of the sorrows (1910). A second feature will be The era of wonderful nonsense, a film showing the zany lengths to which some Americans went in the 1920's to make a living. Thirdly, there is On the Bowery, a TV version of the documentary film which won first prize at the Venice Film Festival this year. Produced and directed by Lionel Rogosin, its candid sequences show how the down-and-outers live on this downtown Manhattan avenue"--TV guide, Nov. 18, 1956. Plays also include W.B.
