Most widely held works by Megan Gay
Hannah Arendt by Margarethe von Trotta( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biopic of Hannah Arendt, the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker, controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils, introduced her now-famous concept of the "Banality of Evil." Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, the director von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. An Official Selection at the Toronto International and New York Jewish Film Festivals, Hannah Arendt also co-stars Klaus Pohl as philosopher Martin Heidegger, Nicolas Woodeson as New Yorker editor William Shawn, and two-time Oscar Nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) as novelist Mary McCarthy

Art girls sie brauchen mehr Glück, als eine hat( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eine erfolglose Künstlerin aus Berlin-Mitte hofft auf ihren Durchbruch, als sie zu einer Gruppenausstellung eingeladen wird. Doch die Veranstaltung ist lediglich Vorwand für ein riskantes Strahlenexperiment, das ins Katastrophale umschlägt. Der experimentelle Film wirft einen satirisch-boshaften Blick auf die Kunstszene und ihre Mechanismen, öffnet sich aber mit lustvollen Perspektivwechseln, liebevollen Kinoreferenzen und einem kollektiven Erzählversuch auch für allerlei überraschende Spiegelungen. Ein hochambitionierter Versuch, Film als Werkzeug zur Hinterfragung medialer Wirklichkeitskonstruktion in Spiel zu bringen." [film-dienst.de]

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on letters and journals, many of which have never been published before, this documentary tells the story of 1914-18 solely through the eyes of those who lived through it. Bringing together 25 broadcasters from around the world, this is television's global event for the centenary of World War I. Through glorious dramatic reconstruction, viewers experience the greatest war mankind had ever seen, not from the perspective of what it was, but of what it was like from within. Great War Diaries reveals the simple human experience of 1914-18, unsullied by historical interpretation."--From BBC website

Eternal beauty? : Story of the Third Reich through its own propaganda by Marcel Schwierin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No other totalitarian regime is as closely associated with an artistic movement as Nazi Germany. From the towering architecture of Albert Speer to the grandiose films of Leni Riefenstahl, art fed into and shaped Nazi ideals, reflecting back a world where Aryan strength triumphs over all enemies. Through art on a monumental scale, Hitler created a world--and a worldview--as enticing as it was illusory ... a world of eternal beauty. This program definitively examines the history of the Third Reich through the lens of its own artistic iconography--films that promoted German superiority, demonized Jews, encouraged love of the fatherland, and hid the fact that the nation, after reverses on every front, was steadily losing the war."--Films Media Group website
