Animated Soviet propaganda( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The USSR's animation studios frequently took aim at the United States and aspects of American culture perceived as evil. These initially included racism, unemployment, aggression, and excess. During the 1960s, these were expanding to decry the Vietnam War, the influence of the Catholic Church, and economic and class divisions. The cartoons selected represent five decades of animated Soviet propaganda
Frank Zappa's 200 motels by Frank Zappa( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A psychedelic precursor to music videos, in which Zappa's Mothers of Invention wreak havoc in Centerville, an obnoxiously stereotypical American town. The first color movie made on videotape and then transferred to film, 200 Motels attempts to present the sometimes inspired life of a rock 'n roll band in search of money, groupies and cheeseburgers. When the film is inspired, one gets a glimpse of the convoluted terrain of Zappa's mind; when it is not, moments can drag, but one must admit that only Frank Zappa could make such a film, let alone release it. A bemused Ringo Starr does not so much steal the film as temporarily rescuscitate it

Eurocrime!( Visual )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary concerning the violent Italian "poliziotteschi" cinematic movement of the '70s which, at first glance, seems like just a bunch of cheap rip-offs of American crime films like Dirty Harry or The Godfather. But on closer inspection, these films were really addressing distinctly Italian issues like the Sicilian Mafia and red terrorism
Animated Soviet propaganda. the shining future( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soviet film studios worked hard to portray their government's system as idyllic and forward-looking. This program displays animated films designed to promote that utopian vision. Along with one of the earliest known examples of Soviet animation, there are films that praise the casting-off of antiquated traditions, the Soviet educational system, the achievements of Stalin's first five-year plan, and several rejoicing over the passing of Czarist imperialism and the establishment of a new, benevolent society
Animated Soviet propaganda( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hitler's invasion of Russia and Germany's post-WWII partition inspired a great deal of animated Soviet propaganda. This program presents short films that disparage fascist aggression and America's supposed continuation of it. Some of them play on Russian fears of a reunited, vengeful, and American-supported Germany, while others celebrate the Young Pioneers, wherein brave and loyal Soviet children encounter and stand up to fascism
Animated Soviet propaganda( Visual )

Just as America envisioned Communist threats during much of the 20th century, the specter of capitalism loomed large in the Soviet Cold War psyche. This program surveys Soviet animated propaganda embodying that fiercely anti-capitalist spirit and proclaiming the superiority of the Soviet economic system. Included are films that envision the exploration of Mars and the resultant Communist triumph over free-market forces, while warning against capitalist interference in China

He then must learn to fight one-handed and reclaim his honor in this rousing adventure from director Giorgio Ferroni (Mill of the Stone Women). Then Richard Harrison breaks a sweat as The invincible gladiator, who's forced to fight for his life in the arena of death where he learns lessons of love, friendship and betrayal. Classic pec-flexing action!
