Provides an inside look at the work of celebrated architects and some of their most brilliant creations. Examines the saltworks of Arc-and-Senans built by Claude-Nicolas Ledoux in the late 18th century and the influence of this monumental factory on other architects. Looks at the Maison de Verre or the house of glass, designed by Pierre Chareau and completed in 1932, as an example of playful avant-garde architecture that was built around the top floor of an existing Paris building that the tenant refused to vacate. Discusses how the deconstructivist Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao, designed by Frank Gehry and opened to the public in 1997, was incorporated into its environment in a dying industrial city. Describes how the self-educated engineer and architect Jean Prouvé, known for his metal furniture, built a house for his own family in 1954 after the failure of his attempts to sell prefabricated, steel and aluminum houses to the French public. Examines the transparent cube of a multimedia library built in 2001 in northern Japan by architect Toyo Ito and its use of open and barrier-free space. Looks at the construction of the historic Abbey Church of Saint Foy as a prototype of a "pilgrim church" in the new style of the 11th century, now known as Romanesque

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

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.

"From the Haussmann era to the construction of the boulevard périphérique or ring road, this is the story of how Paris became a vibrant metropolis. How did the Paris of the 20th century succeed in accommodating modernity while holding onto its 19th-century gems? How have the demands posed by modern life, vehicular circulation and social housing managed to leave room for architectural creativity?"--Container
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 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."

Route one / USA by Robert Kramer( Visual )

6 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this docudrama, filmmaker Robert Kramer, who has had long periods of residence in Europe, and an expatriate doctor friend of his, set out to rediscover their native country by traveling from Maine to Florida on old US Route 1, a major north-south route built before the interstate highway system was constructed. The doctor has just returned from a long stint of public service in Africa, and is undecided about what to do with his life. Despite an apparently determined attempt to dig into the seedy side of American life, the travelers run into one inspirational scene after another, and run into such luminaries as Pat Robertson and Jesse Jackson on the presidential campaign trail, and performers like Ossie Davis and Helen Hayes
Salata baladi Salade maison by Nadia Kamel( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in Arabic and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Award-winning, Egyptian filmmaker Nadia Kamel's heritage is a complex blend of religions and cultures. Her mother is a half jewish, half Italian Christian who converted to Islam when she married Nadia's half Turkish, half Ukrainian father. Prompted by the realization that her 10-year-old nephew Nabeel is growing up in an Egyptian society where talk of culture clashes is all too common, she decides to let her mother, Mary Rosenthal, share their diverse family history. But, as she and mary weave their way through the family's fairytales, they bump into the silence around old prejudices concerning the estranged Egyptian Jewish branch of their family living in Israel since 1948. Inspired to further challenge the boundaries between cultures, religions and nationalities that are used to divide us, Kamel travels, along with her mother and nephew, to Israel and Italy and confronts fears and prejudices along the way."--Container
