Le Palais des réceptions et des congrès de Rome( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adalberto Libera was a pioneer of architectural modernity and a die-hard fascist. Unlike the Nazis, Mussolini made an alliance with the modern movement, which became for architecture, the official style of fascism. In 1937, the regime launched one of its most ambitious projects - the E 42. The idea was to create a new monumental city embodying the new Imperial Rome, for the International Exhibition of 1942. Libera won the competition for the Reception and Congress Building. Launched amidst great pomp and circumstance in 1938, the work initially made rapid progress. When Italy entered war, the work pace became sluggish and was abandoned altogether in 1944. The E 42 quarter was to remain a wasteland, until 1950 when the Italian Christian Democrats decided to resume work on it. This film explores the paradoxical alliance between a formal avant-garde movement and a totalitarian ideology. On a more general level, it also explores the link between architecture and power

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Built between 1954 and 1961 at Evreux, near Lyon, by Le Corbusier, the legendary Convent of La Tourette was designed as a dwelling and a place of prayer and study for 100 Dominican monks, but after turmoil over Vatican II and the '68 student uprisings left only one student, the Domenicans allowed the convent to become a conference center. Le Corbusier's architectural principles are evident in the convent's design, placement and attention to geometry and light. La Tourette is considered one of the most important buildings of the late Modernist style

Gạo Rang = Riz grillé by Claude Grunspan( Visual )

2 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the North Vietnamese combat cameramen who filmed the Indo-Chinese and Vietnam Wars, and founded Vietnamese cinema. Mai Loc and Khoung Mē, two veterans from the French war, tell of acquiring the first cameras and instruction manuals. Mr. Xuong, a traveling projectionist during both wars, recalls projecting films along the 17th Parallel, and remembers how the public reacted to the films. Tran Van Thuy and Le Man Thich screen some of the material that they shot. They describe the hardship and fear they faced in combat and during American bombings. For all of them, "to make propaganda was obvious." But they also discuss their regrets. Thuy says "If we had had a more critical historical awareness, we could have left much better images." Their films give the impression that everything was easy. They didn't film enough of the hard daily life, and regret the many "heroic deaths that were not filmed." It would have been "useless," the footage would not have been used
