Verdun : visions d'histoire by Léon Poirier( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in No Linguistic content and French and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German troops are entering the Meuse. The alert has been given. The French soldier calmly awaits the shock. All the villages have been evacuated; wives have been torn apart from their husbands, who stay to defend the land the old farmer won't abandon. The German offensive takes place on February 21st, 1916. Following intense bombing from 7:15 am to 5 pm, flocks of German soldiers dash through the bois des Caures. In order to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the end of World War I, Léon Poirier recreated the battle of Verdun and inscribed in history the lives of symbolic characters from both sides of the front. Verdun, looking at history was edited in three distinct parts and is an epic film of great emotional strength dedicated to all the martyrs of the ugliest human passion that is war

Brazza : ou, l'épopée du Congo( Visual )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brazza is the story of the exploration of what will become French Equatorial Africa, the story of a -- literally -- barefoot idealist, French by choice rather than by birth, set on spreading the Republican gospel of civilization, of abolishing slavery, confronting a world of ruffians, (then already rich Anglo-Saxons), a lay missionary perfectly played by Robert Darène. The storyteller is another idealist, Léon Poirier, proud of his sobriquet "The African." A story so full of candour may bring out disbelieving smiles, if not outright anger. It is therefore particularly interesting to listen to the powerful and scathing analysis presented by Eric Deroo, a specialist on colonial history. And, finally, comments by two Batékés who, in spite of their witty and sometimes angry analysis of the film, admit to feeling a measure of respect for the character of Brazza."--Container

He explains that, compared with the silent version of 1928, this is a new film with a full soundtrack and dialogue. The scenes portrayed and the characters have changedd.

He discusses issues raised by the film which are still relevant today."--Container
