Workingman's death by Michael Glawogger( Visual )

52 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glawdogger deconstructs contemporary conceptions of work by showcasing six of the most grueling and dangerous professions he could find. At once a rejoinder to those predicting the death of manual labour and a ground-level lesson on globalization, the film makes the efforts of these impoverished men something heroic. They represent a forgotten kind of courage. All of this work is captured in Glawogger's characteristic stunning compositions, with an eye for the harsh grandeur of elemental and industrial environments. Features Ukrainian miners working in abondoned coal mines, Indonesian sulphur gatherers, Nigerian slaughterhouse workers, Pakistani shipbreakers, Chinese steelworkers and German smelters

Whores' glory by Michael Glawogger( Visual )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third film in Michael Glawogger's globalization trilogy (following Megacities and Workingman's death), is an explicit and unflinching exposé of global prostitution. In Bangkok, Thailand, women punch a clock and wait for clients in a brightly lit glass box; in the red-light district of Faridpur, Bangladesh, a madam haggles over the price of a teenage girl; and in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico, crack-addicted women pray to a deity named Lady Death. Winner of the Orizzonti Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, Glawogger's latest larger-than-life documentary is an audacious, non-judgmental study of sexuality, politics, human behavior and the effects of capital and religion on both women and men from starkly different cultures."--Container

Das posthume literarische Debüt eines renommierten Dokumentarfilmers. Michael Glawoggers Roman handelt von einem "er", der gerne reist und dabei um die ganze Welt kommt.

Die Reisebucheinträge erschienen im "Standard" und in der "Süddeutschen Zeitung". Michael Glawoggers literarisches Debüt, erscheint posthum in Zusammenarbeit mit Andrea Glawogger. "Mehr als vom Reisen und von den roads erzählt Glawogger vom Innehalten, von den Momenten des temporären Unterschlupfens, in großen und kleinen, modernen und heruntergekommenen Hotels, von der Einsamkeit und den Erwartungen, die sie provoziert, von den Schocks der Realität auf den Straßen der fremden Stadt, und wie man sich dagegen wappnet mit Erinnerungen und erfundenen Geschichten. Das Buch ist ein Glawogger-Labor, man spürt beim Lesen, wie die Vitalitätsschübe in den Filmen sich entwickeln, schaut der Geburt der GlawoggerKinovisionen zu in aller Welt - den wahnwitzigen Bildern von den Schwefelträgern oder den Schlächtern, den Huren in Thailand oder Indien" (SZ)
