Touch the sound a sound journey with Evelyn Glennie by Evelyn Glennie ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Evelyn Glennie is a musician--the world's first full-time classical percussion soloist. An award winning globetrotter, she began losing her hearing as a child, and describes herself as "profoundly deaf," by which she means she perceives a very low level of sound, using her body as a "resounding chamber" through which she experiences her work. This impressionistic documentary film invites the viewer to share in her understanding of the physical relationship between sound and the human body, accompanied by striking visuals correlated to the percussive vibrations she conjures

Ostkreuz ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ostkreuz tells the episodic story of 15-year-old Elfie, who literally and metaphorically inhabits a no man's land between the two Germanies shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The film deploys a neorealist aesthetic to reinforce the difficulties confronting the girl, and by inference, Germany."--Container
