Most widely held works by William Lubtchansky
Shoah by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

18 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a decade in the making, this monumental investigation of the unthinkable: the murder of more than six million Jews by the Nazis. Using no archival footage, Claude Lanzmann instead focuses on first-person testimonies (of survivors and former Nazis, and other witnesses), employing a circular, free-associative method in assembling them. The intellectual yet emotionally overwhelming Shoah is not a film about excavating the past but an intensive portrait in which the past is always present

La belle noiseuse The beautiful troublemaker by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

24 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A painter suffering artistic burnout is inspired by his meeting with Marianne at his Languedoc villa. She is persuaded to pose for him as he attempts to recover the 'masterpiece' he had abandoned ten years earlier. The film becomes a playing out of the process of creation (of a painting/a film), a battle of wills between the artist and his model, the artist's wife (who has been his model) and Marianne's lover. This package contains two versions of the film both prepared by Rivette - the four-hour version more in the nature of a performance piece, which explains the process in exhaustive detail (including the hand of an actual artist, Bernhard Dufour, at work) while the two-hour version (minus Dufour's hand) is brisker, more in the nature of a short story, which provides a different perspective on the relationships

"Le Mahâbhârata est une épopée, avec des héros et des dieux, des animaux fabuleux. En même temps, l'œuvre est intime. C'est-à-dire que les personnages sont vulnérables, pleins de contradictions, totalement humains" (Peter Brook)

A sixteen year old German youth is sent to America by his family. After displeasing his rich uncle and being disowned he travels west in search of better opportunities. His picaresque adventures as an innocent abroad are represented in a series of static tableaux with no apparent sense of movement, inner or outer. Central to the film is the organisation of space, the static camera fixed at a point where spatial relationships and the precision of the spoken text serve to underline class relationships; the frame lines virtually become the social prison of class

Brigands, chapitre VII by Otar Iosseliani( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This crazy, satirical epic humorously portrays several eras in European history. Though the costumes and regimes change, the film suggests, the human motives of lust and greed remain the same. Jumping back and forth in time, the film condemns its characters to an eternity of irony. In one section, a medieval king named Vano, who has a penchant for exotic torture techniques, executes his wife for being unfaithful. Seamlessly the film flashes forward to the early 1930s, with another Vano, played by the same actor, portraying a low-down thief who suddenly seizes power. Intercut with all of this is the story of a contemporary Vano, a hapless drunk who wanders across the underworlds of Europe

Daguerréotypes by Agnès Varda( Visual )

Summary: The rue Daguerre in Paris is named after Louis Daguerre, the inventor of the first practical process of photography, who also gave his name to the first formal photographic portraits, the daguerreotypes. A typical Parisian street, not far from Montparnasse, it is here that film director Agnés Varda lives. Gently observing the daily routine of the shopkeepers who live and trade between nos. 70 and 90, she has made the modern equivalent of a daguerreotype. Through her eyes we see the day-to-day existence of her neighbours, focussing on the work they do within this self-contained world. Intercut between these sympathetic observations are extracts from a magician's performance, held at a local café
