Our daily bread by Nikolaus Geyrhalter( Visual )

"Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film looks without commenting into the places where food is produced in Europe: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds - a cool, industrial environment which leaves little space for individualism. People, animals, crops and machines play a supporting role in the logistics of this system which provides our society's standard of living ... a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn't always easy to digest - and in which we all take part."--Container
The Complete Blue Eyed : With Jane Elliott( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jane Elliott believes that white people won't act against racism until they have experienced it emotionally themselves, if only for a few hours in a controlled environment. The "blue eyed/brown eyed" exercise was originally developed by Jane Elliott for her all white third grade class in Riceville, Iowa at the time of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination to give them some idea of racial prejudice. She divided her class on the basis of eye color and subjected the blue-eyed members to a regime of intense discrimination. They soon cracked under the pressure, losing self-esteem and competence. Filmed for German television, this edition of "Blue Eyed" showcases Jane Elliott as diversity trainer, using the powerful and controversial "blue eyed/brown eyed" exercise with real people, presented in three separate versions so it can be conveniently used in any training or educational setting

A kiss cashes in : Klimt between art and business( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although his contemporaries deemed Gustav Klimt's output "painted pornography suitable for pagan orgies," reproductions of his work are now booming in popularity. The Klimt Museum in Vienna sells an almost infinite variety of merchandise bearing his famous Kiss: along with the customary posters and coffee mugs, tourists can buy Klimt dog blankets, chocolates, Barbie dolls, umbrellas, and cookbooks. This program offers theories about why The Kiss is so well-suited to commercialization and contrasts Klimt's current success to the shocked reviews he garnered in his time. The video goes to the Klimt Museum; the Klimt Center, built to commemorate the site where the artist brought his mistresses; and a Klimt-themed nursing home in Vienna

Die Zauberflöte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in German and English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The strangest of Mozart's operas is on the one hand the beguiling story of lovers in jeopardy, as transparent and enjoyable as any pantomime; on the other, an opaque allegory that has occasioned more interpretative speculation than any opera outside the canon of Richard Wagner. Ultimately, the esoteric meaning is less important than the overt subject matter, which is conveyed through a consistently entertaining mix of popular tunes, high-art arias, solemn Gluck-like drama and bel canto display. For this Zurich Opera staging, designed by Philip Prowse, Jonathan Miller has set Mozart's opera in the time of its creation: 1791, just after the French Revolution and the fall of the Bastille"--Container

Ferien( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in German and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bourgeois family escapes the noise and crowding of Berlin for a summer in the country.

Laura and Paul's marriage is in crisis, Anna's mother is dying, and Max spends all his time with his girlfriend. The shifting constellations of the family are revealed in individual conversations and encounters. The tragic irony is, of course, the incongruity between the stability of each character's identity in their own mind and the constantly changing roles each actually inhabits

Alonzo King Lines Ballet : from San Francisco 2011( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Triangle of the Squinches features an innovative kinetic set by architect Christopher Haas. In this piece, Alonzo King explores the inner and outer space of the body: how do we strive to touch something infinite with our material forms? What is the resonance between the bodies we inhabit and the forms we create? Alonzo King's Scheherazade is a re-envisioning of the ancient collection of Persian, Sanskrit, and Arabic stories of 1,001 Nights. Dust and light. In a landscape that shifts like the clouds, dappling the stage with soft light and then bathing the dancers in silvery radiance, Alonzo King brings out the emotional intimacy of dance. The LINES Ballet dancers move in harmonious counterpoint to each other, setting off the rich variations of Arcangelo Corelli's Baroque music against Francis Poulenc's otherworldly sacred choral odes

The visual language of Herbert Matter by Reto Caduff( Visual )
