Prospero's books : an adaptation of The Tempest by William Shakespeare by Peter Greenaway( Visual )

54 editions published between 1191 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prospero, once the Duke of Milan, now reigns over a faraway island, living there with his only daughter, Miranda. Twelve years earlier Prospero's brother, in league with the King of Naples, had exiled Prospero and his daughter from their home. One evening, Prospero imagines creating a storm powerful enough to bring his old enemies to his island. He begins to write a play about this tempest, speaking aloud the lines of each of his characters. It is the story of Prospero's past, and his revenge."--Title screens. As adapted by Peter Greenaway, the film envisions a magical realm of exquisite beauty, where the innocence of love and dreams of revenge collide to create a tempest. Greenaway structures the film around the 24 books Prospero took into exile, and while remaining faithful to the text, the treatment and delivery of that text could hardly be more different

Parafango( Visual )

in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this French production, featuring riveting performances by longtime collaborators Karole Armitage, Michael Clark and others, Atlas fuses hyper-kinetic postmodern choreography with a post-punk maelstrom of sound composed by David Linton. Intercut with a provocative, if ambiguous, collage of television footage, spoken narrative, and "documentary" footage of Atlas filming the dance performances, Parafango consistently breaks down and reconstructs the "third wall" of illusionism"--Www.thekitchen.org/MovieCatalog/Titles/Parafango.html
