Herzog/Kinski collection ( Visual )
in German and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the first film of the collaboration between Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski, Don Lope de Aguirre dreams about conquering South America and leads his army on a doomed mission into oblivion. Jonathan Harker embarks on a long journey over the Carpathian Mountains to finalize real estate arrangements with a wealthy nobleman, little realizing that he is about to become involved with a dangerous vampire, Nosferatu. The third film in the collection, Woyzeck, focuses on a soldier battered beyond endurance by abuse from commanding officers, doctors and even his faithless wife. Fitzcarraldo has a mighty dream, to bring Enrico Caruso and Sarah Bernhardt together in a remote town in Peru for one great performance of Grand Opera. To achieve this he will have to overcome almost unsurmountable odds. Cobra Verde was a 19th century Brazilian bandit who is sent on a deadly mission to re-open the slave trade in West Africa. In meeting his mission he goes on to lead an army of women in a war against the local king. My best fiend is a film about the love-hate relationship between Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski, two creative geniuses of the film industry

Cinéma Novo l'âge d'or du cinéma brésilien by Dominique Dreyfus ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in Portuguese and French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Indiqué sur la jaquette : Tourné en 1967 pour une télévision allemande, Cinema Novo présente les chefs de file du "cinéma qui se fait aujourd'hui au Brésil" - les chefs de file moins un, car Joaquim Pedro de Andrade est derrière la caméra pour nous montrer, dans un style de reportage, Carlos Diegues, Glauber Rocha, Domingos de Oliveira, Arnaldo Jabor et d'autres au travail, en cours de tournage, de montage, ou de négociation. "Une caméra en main, une idée en tête" : défense et illustration de la fameuse devise de Nelson Pereira dos Santos - père du nouveau cinéma brésilien, avec des films tels que "Rio 40 Graus" (1955) ou "Vidas secas" (1963), - qui sert de fil conducteur à cette incursion dans le jeune cinéma brésilien des premières années de la dictature. Au-delà d'une même précarité financière, ce "nouveau cinéma" se démarque par sa cohésion, et se donne (tel est du moins ce que souhaite alors en montrer Andrade) comme un véritable groupe de discussions et d'échanges, une plateforme de réflexion transdisciplinaire où l'on croise également architectes et figures historiques de la bossa nova. Une unité dont l'origine se trouverait dans la résistance au "cinéma standard" et, plus loin, au régime en place, évoqué de manière très allusive - gageons que le cinéaste n'a pas alors toute licence pour dévoiler les fondements idéologiques du mouvement, dont il préfère livrer un compte relativement neutre
