The amateur as auteur discovering paradise in pictures( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American experimental film has existed since the technological inception of cinema, through its adolescent rambles of 1900-1919, rising phoenix-like during the high silent era, and finally matured and spread throughout the '30's and onward. The background against which the experimentalists toiled provides a fascinating review of Americana coupled with numerous cross-currents, successes and failures, and an unfailing desire to create on film an image that can be viewed as an independent and provocative art. These home-made films incorporate avant-garde strategies and techniques to achieve a true sense of cinematic intimacy

Dress to kill by Eddie Izzard( Visual )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eddie Izzard spins free-flowing jokes about San Francisco, transvestitism, squirrels, American optimism, Hitler, the British royal family, mass murder and Stonehenge. Izzard romps through human history and transforms surprisingly complex ideas into biting satire--as well as knockout bits of sublime frivolity, like describing the movie Speed entirely in French. His mercurial patter is sprinkled with four-letter words, but his twinkling glances make this more mischievous than crude

Black rain falls by Midnight Oil (Musical group)( Visual )

5 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Midnight Oil's 1990 New York concert, 'Black Rain Falls', will be released for the first time on DVD on Friday 20th June. On May 30th 1990, Midnight Oil interrupted their North American tour for a "special guerrilla action" outside of Exxon Oil headquarters on the crowded Avenue of the Americas in midtown Manhattan. The agitprop event from the back of a flat-bed truck drew more than 10,000 people out of the nearby office buildings and onto the street. The Oils were responding to one of the worst environmental disasters in US history when 11 million gallons of oil were spilled onto the pristine Alaskan coastline by the Exxon Valdez. Nearly twenty five years on the effects of the spill on the landscapes and wildlife of southern Alaska are still being felt. The long form concert features all six songs captured live that day: "Progress" (From the 1986 EP, Species Deceases); "sometimes" and "Dreamworld" (From 1987's Diesel and Dust); "Blue Sky Mine" and "River Runs Red" (From Blue Skly Mining, 1990); the apropos tribute to John Lennon, "Instant Karma" and the video clip for Midnight Oil's "King Of The Mountain" (Also from Blue Sky Mining), plus commentary on each track from the band
