William Yang: My Generation( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Yang found a role as a documentary photographer of the emerging artistic, literary, theatrical and queer circles in the 70s and 80s. He captured his friendships with artists such as Brett Whiteley, Nobel Prize winning author Patrick White, and fashion designers Linda Jackson and Jenny Kee. Yang has become very wellknown for his revealing live 'slide-show performances' in which he tells stories about his friendships. Now Yang has adapted his original live performance method into this intimate one-hour documentary in his own frank, humorously deadpan performance style - telling the stories behind his fly-on-the-wall photographs. He narrates a slide-show of his photographs, depicting an era that was 'especially decadent... there were many colourful characters and parties were so much fun. It was in the days following women's liberation, sexual liberation and gay and lesbian liberation so it was a time of great change'. Through the lens of his dynamic friendships, Yang documents the impact of the AIDS crisis, the outrageous fashion, the drug and party culture, and the bohemian social scene. Nothing was off limits and Yang was always where the action was

Un angelo alla mia tavola( Visual )

2 editions published in 2002 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Realizzato per tre puntate televisive, il film è diviso in tre periodi della vita della scrittrice Janet Frame, considerata ingiustamente, per il suo carattere anticonformista e un po' introverso, pazza. Si parte quindi dall'infanzia per poi passare ai primi romanzi pubblicati, attraverso l'esperienza in una clinica psichiatrica. La regia è anticonformista, in linea con la scrittrice, e al tempo stesso scrupolosa e rigorosa
