Bomb it( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film tells the story of graffiti from its cave-painting ancestors through its notorious explosion in New York City during the 70's and 80's as living museums appeared on trains rolling between the Bronx and Brooklyn. This film explores the many manifestations of "bombing," the global graffiti culture where the love of art and ego clashes explosively with law and order. From New York, Tokyo, Berlin, Barcelona, Cape Town, and Sao Paulo, each city boasts its own unique style and form of graffiti, and artists. Through grainy night vision footage and interviews, graffiti writers explain why they risk arrest and injury to express themselves, to reflect their society, and engage in a battle for control over the urban visual landscape.

Limón a life beyond words( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revolutionary modern dancer and choreographer José Limón (1908-1972) was a crucial figure in the development of modern dance: his powerful dancing shifted perceptions of the male dancer, while his choreography continues to bring a dramatic vision of dance to audiences around the world. This film combines interviews with family members and colleagues, archival photographs, and archival and contemporary performances to present his life and major works in the context of the times. Limón was a man who dealt with his bi-conflicts through his art. Excerpts from productions beautifully filmed in the fifties include "The Moor's Pavane," "The Traitor," and "Emperor Jones."
The Dungeon masters( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evil drow-elf is displaced by Hurricane Katrina. A sanitation worker lures friends into a Sphere of Annihilation. A failed supervillian starts a cable access show involving ninjas, puppets, and a cooking segment. These are the characters, real and imagined, of Keven McAlester's new documentary film, The Dungeon masters. Against the backdrop of crumbling middle-class America, two men and one woman devote their lives to Dungeons and Dragons, the storied role-playing game, and its various descendants. As their baroque fantasies clash with real lives, the characters find it increasingly difficult to allay their fear, loneliness, and disappointment with the game's imaginary triumphs. Soon the true heroic act of each character's real life emerges, and the film follows each as he or she summons the courage to face it. Along the way, The Dungeon Masters reimagines the tropes of classic heroic cinema, creating an intimate portrait of minor struggles and triumphs writ large

[Interview with Carla Maxwell]( Visual )

2 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unedited footage recorded for the documentary Limón: a life beyond words. As the interview begins, Carla Maxwell, artistic director of the Limón Dance Company (formerly called the José Limón Dance Company), notes that it is the company's 50th anniversary, the 25th year after Limón's death, and her 20th year as artistic director. She touches upon the company's difficulties at the time of Limón's death, when no other modern dance company had survived the loss of its founder; then notes some of the qualities that enabled the Limón company to survive, particularly Limón's genius as a choreographer. She discusses Limón as a dancer and company director, and his struggles to gain respect for dance as an art form. Much of the interview explores aspects of his dance work Carlota (1972): her own experience of creating its title role; his motives for making the work, the concept of which predated his work La Malinche (1949), also inspired by Mexican history; the geometry of its choreography; its historical background, the tragic life of the empress Carlota of Mexico; his unusual choice of a female hero (possibly prefigured by his Dances of Isadora); his frequent use of the theme of the outsider, possibly stemming from his own life experience. She also discusses his work The winged, whose original form has been lost; his legacy of hope; the nature of dance as a human experience; the qualities she seeks in new company members
