The cosmic link by Catherine Fol( Visual )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in French and English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where do we come from? The award-winning The Cosmic Link takes us on a fascinating odyssey, in the company of some world-reknowned scientists whose discoveries into the natural world are providing some clues to this age-old question. Could the first life forms, which appeared some four billion years ago, have originated in organic cosmic dust? One thing is certain: all life on our planet shares some of the same genetic code and developed from the same evolutionary tree. But could life have evolved in a completely different way? What if there were living organisms with a genetic structure entirely unlike ours? The key to this mystery may be found in space"--Container
Ceci n'est pas Einstein by Catherine Fol( Visual )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In This Is Not Einstein, Catherine Fol's latest film, Pascale Montpetit portrays a young woman with a curious mind who embarks on a quest for discovery with Albert Einstein's writings as her guide. This documentary invites us to rediscover the wonder of childhood and our fascination with the riddles of the universe. Through amusing demonstrations and interviews with eminent scientists, the film shows the difficulty of explaining the universe with theories that only partially represent reality. Though our insight into nature is constantly growing, we can never hope for a total understanding. Astronomer Trinh Xuan Thuan reminds us that by questioning the most elemental things, inquisitive minds have made momentous discoveries.."--NFB website (www.onf.ca)

Le lien cosmique aborde les origines de la vie en soulignant la filiation entre les différentes disciplines scientifiques. Dans Ceci n'est pas Einstein , une jeune femme renoue avec l'émerveillement et la curiosité, dons essentiels pour la recherche scientifique

Nathalie Provost, une survivante de la tuerie du 6 décembre 1989 à l'École polytechnique de Montréal, fait le point, avec des amis, sur le drame qu'elle a vécu et les séquelles qui en découlent. Il est aussi question du féminisme, du racisme et des difficultés de la société à accepter les différences
Collision cosmique by Catherine Fol( Visual )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1994, la comète Shoemaker-Levy heurte Jupiter de plein fouet. Pour la première fois, des astronomes assistent à une collision cosmique dont la force d'impact aurait anéanti la terre et pour parer à cette menace, des scientifiques étudient la trajectoire des astéroïdes. Celle de Toutatis, par exemple, qui frôlera notre planète en l'an 2004 ... pour passer tranquillement son chemin. Mais la science ne peut encore déceler qu'une faible partie des objets cosmiques potentiellement dangereux. D'où l'espoir inquiet des astronomes qui nous communiquent leur passion pour les étoiles, si proches et si loin de nous

Les limites de ce que nous considérons comme la <<normalité>> sont-elles le reflet de notre sens de la justice et de notre conception du bien commun, ou celui d'une organisation sociale qui sauvegarde les avantages de certains au détriment de la majorité?

Einstein and the stars( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are all transient inhabitants of a fragile planet. In 1994, comet Shoemaker-Levy hurtled straight into Jupiter. For the first time in history, astronomers were eyewitnesses to a cosmic collision, the force of which would have destroyed the Earth. It is to avoid such an eventuality that scientists are keeping a watchful eye on the trajectory of asteroids such as Toutatis, which will just miss us in the year 2004, and continue on its way. In all probability, no giant asteroid will threaten us in the near future. But since scientists can only track down a small proportion of the objects circulating in the cosmos, they cannot say for certain. The renowned scientists featured in this film are thus both uneasy and hopeful. These discoverers of comets communicate their passion for the stars--so close and yet so far away from us."--NFB website (www.onf.ca)

Quand l'art se fait science comment démêler le vrai du faux?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Conférence-débat tenue sous l'égide de la Chaire publique de l'AELIÉS et présentée à l'Université Laval le 1er mars 2007 par Mme Catherine Fol, réalisatrice - auteure, M. Cyrille Barrette, département de biologie de l'Université Laval, M. Hervé Fischer, artiste - philosophe. Modérateur: M. Jean-Marie De Koninck, département de mathématiques et de statistique de l'Université Laval. Quelle relation existe-t-il entre l'art et la science ? Comment l'art récupère-t-il les percés scientifiques ? Comment expliquer le recours instinctif aux explications scientifiques dans les intrigues policières (les experts, etc.) ? D'un autre côté, la science-fiction nous laisse entrevoir un monde si crédible qu'il devient difficile de distinguer le vrai du faux. Jurassic Park, Le gladiateur, certaines productions historiques éducatives ou, plus récemment, le Da Vinci Code prennent-ils le dessus sur le réel' Qui ne croit pas avoir vu de vrais dinosaures à la sortie de Jurassic Park? Nous faisons-nous duper par l'utilisation de l'art pour illustrer la science?
