Philip Haas's eye-popping film on Australian Aboriginal art, takes us through the steps of preparing three ground paintings made by a group of desert tribesman. The film shows the collective effort and cooperation required to make the art. The beauty of the finished pieces - so ancient and so modern - is stunning. The northern Australian Aboriginal bark painters' "studio" and "gallery" are dramatically different from that of the desert people. Here, making art is a solitary activity. Haas follows two brothers as they painstakingly prepare their bark canvasses and brushes and then paint two pieces. Both northern and desert Aborigines include body painting as part of their art, and the men perform ritual dances accompanied by Aboriginal musical instruments.

Magicians of the Earth( Visual )

Seni Camara lives with her husband and family in the village of Bigona, in the Casamance region in southern Senegal. Working outside the local tradition of making pots and "useful" objects out of clay, Seni claims that through a "gift of God" she has been able to create thousands of bizarre, magnificent creatures â€" clay sculptures of astonishing originality. Although the villagers don't know quite what to make of Seni and her art, she continues to work to support her family and to satisfy her own creative urge. The film follows Seni and her husband as they prepare the materials of her art. Together they dig up the hard dirt of the land and slowly mix it with water and sand until the clay is ready to be molded (she tells by taste). While Seni does the intense work of shaping the wet clay into her truly original forms, her husband prepares the final dye bath by harvesting and soaking wild nuts in water. Finally they fire the sculptures and dye them. Seni then carries her creations to the market where she sells them to the occasional western tourists (for the equivalent of four to one hundred dollars) who happen to stumble onto her market stall. There her sculptures share space along with the vegetables and other odds and ends on her table. Seniâ€"! work is powerful â€" strange half human creatures giving birth to other, little laughing creatures, each stranger than the last. Heads come out of knees and bodies grow out of other bodies. They are Seni's fertility sculptures - her children. Seni's Children provides a wonderful example of an artist who uses traditional materials to make strikingly new and original work. The film has an original music score by the West African musician Foday Musa Suso
Magicians of the Earth( Visual )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmmaker Philip Haas traveled to the southernmost tip of Madagascar to meet Efiaimbelo, a man in his mid-sixties who works as a funerary sculptor. The film follows Efiaimbelo as he travels to an isolated area in the countryside to cut down a special tree for sculpting. He makes it into a pole of geometric shapes, which he then tops with a finely honed sculpture of a cow. This beautiful sculpture is funerary piece, designed to ornament a grave. The film features remarkable footage of huge tombs covered with cow antlers and poles like the one we see Efiaimbelo sculpt. The tops of these poles are decorated with all sorts of animals, people and tableaux associated with the dead person. Very little has been known or seen of this funereal and artistic tradition outside the region and the film provides an extraordinarily rich visual experience. Nera Jambruk is the big man in his village in the East Sepik province of Papua New Guinea. He is the head of a group of men who build and paint the Houses of Spirits in the area. The film shows him and his men as they work day and night inside the house, painting a huge triangular bark, which they then hoist up into place on the front of the sculpture. The painting, which has powerful magical powers and meaning, is made up of a series of abstract faces surrounded by triangular designs and smaller representations of flowers and animals. During the course of the work, Nera explains the role of the painting in the villagersâ€"!lives. As viewers are drawn into the dynamic of the group and the elegance of the painting, they will forget, as it seems the artists did, that the filmmaker is even there. In Madagascar: Efiaimbelo and Jacques Jean Debord. In New Guinea: Nera Jambruku, Gesan Jambruku, Sakolias Nausak, Klaul Tajimbu, Pilip Nikulak and Paulus Kobulam. A film by Philip Haas. Executive Producer: Fernando Trueba. Produced by Fernando Trueba, P.C.S.A.; Methodact, Ltd.; and the Centre Georges Pompidou. Edited by Belinda Cowdy. Music by David Byrne. Narration by Philip Haas. Cinematography by Juan Molina (Madagascar) and Chris Owen (Papua New Guinea). Sound by Eric Devulder (Madagascar) and Lahui Geita (Papua New Guinea)
Diccionario de cine by Fernando Trueba( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in Spanish and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La historia del cine y la crítica llamada seria están construídas sobre la cantidad de arbitrariedades, verdades aceptadas, tópicos y caprichos; su presunta objetividad es tan discutible que cabe preguntarse ¿para qué otro diccionario subjetivo más?, ¿para qué un nuevo volumen que sólo puede ser inútil y superfluo, por redundante? La respuesta es, querido lector, que este libro que ahora tienes es las manos no es serio en absoluto". Fernando Trueba
