Love's labour's lost : a romantic musical comedy by Kenneth Branagh( Visual )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The handsome young King of Navarre and his three friends--Berowne, Longaville, and Dumaine--make a pledge to retreat for three years to study literature and art, depriving themselves of all comforts, including the company of women, for the duration. The pledge survives intact for exactly as long as it takes the beautiful Princess of France and her three friends--Rosaline, Maria, and Katherine--to travel to Navarre on a diplomatic mission from her father. Shakespeare purists will probably be horrified that Branagh has juxtaposed the Bard with classics by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and George and Ira Gershwin, in a loving homage to the great musicals of the '30s. He has also thrown in every cliché of said musicals, reviving the abandoned genre with 90 minutes of elaborately staged flossy, frothy, campy, cotton-candy fun

Bent by Sean Mathias( Visual )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El genocidio nazi no se limitó a gitanos, judíos ni otras religiones que no fueran la oficial del Vaticano. El homosexual fue otro de los colectivos que Hitler quiso eliminar del 'purísimo' Tercer Reich. 'Bent', dirigida por Sean Mathias (pareja en la vida real del actor Ian McKellen, quien también aparece en la película), refleja esta persecución. La cámara enfoca a Max (Clive Owen), un 'playboy' bisexual que, tras participar en la fiesta de la transformista Greta (Mick Jagger), da con sus huesos en el campo de concentración de Dachau. En el trayecto, traiciona a su amante y convence a sus captores de que le coloquen la estrella amarilla (símbolo de los prisioneros judíos) y no el triángulo rosa (marca de los gays). En Dachau conoce a Horst (Lothaire Blueteau), un homosexual orgulloso de serlo, del que se enamora y que le ayudará a reconocer su verdadera homosexualidad
Carlo Scarpa by Gian Luigi Calderone( Visual )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully photographed program, filmed on location in Italy, pays tribute to this renowned Venetian architect, famous for combining classical and modern architectural forms. Scarpa's unique ability to successfully incorporate his own designs into historical renovation projects is shown at several locations, including the 15th-century Castelvecchio in Verona and Palazzo Abatellis in Palermo. Brion Memorial-one of the great enigmas of modern architecture-is examined as a hybrid of classical, abstract, and Japanese architectural forms. In Venice, craftsmen and fellow architects fondly remember Scarpa's endless experimentation with color and textures
Dance for camera( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents six short dance films from the 2002 Dance Camera West festival. Reines d'un jour features six tumbling bodies on mountain slopes of the Alps, caught between heaven and Earth, among the cows and the villagers. In Measure, a relationship emerges between a man and woman that is revealed as much through their eyes as through the expressive timing of their rhythmically intricate steps. In Rest in peace bizarre behavior and past secrets emerge as four siblings bury their parents. The Village trilogy, inspired by the displacement and destruction of World War II, returns to the physical language of early cinema to evoke the power of the spirit. Cornered is a black and white film that redefines gravity as an attractive force of right angles. Contrecoup depicts an urban environment torn by violence, disorder, and loneliness where the light is sinister, daily life is hostile, and sleep is a nightmare

Brushstrokes by Roy Lichtenstein( Visual )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Virtue is painting an impressionist landscape on an enormous canvas laid out in a field. While he paints, he discusses how he expresses himself artistically through creative brushstrokes rather than through realistic imagery. Through Virtue we learn how the elevated social status of artists in general, and physical changes in the composition of paints, have allowed for more artistic experimentation with a wider variety of mediums and techniques. Individualists such as Titian, Constable, Van Gogh, and Pollock are discussed

How to capture light is a major preoccupation for artists, and each has a different way of accomplishing the task. Although John Greenwood paints still lifes of imaginary objects, he is nevertheless determined to paint them as though they were sitting in natural light. On a fishing boat, Len Tabner tackles the challenge of adapting to changing light. How artists such as Masaccio, Turner, and Monet used light in their work is discussed
Portrait by Cecilia Bartoli( Visual )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It seems appropriate for a portrait to be a fair representation of its subject. However, problems can arise when the sitter does not perceive himself or herself in the same way the painter does. In this program, Tai-Shan Schierenberg paints a portrait of a wealthy English gentleman in two 3-hour sittings, under the intimidating stare of portraits by Holbein, Reynolds, Rembrandt, and Van Dyck. As an artist, Schierenberg is drawn to his subject's natural awkwardness, but wonders whether the Englishman will recognize the tendency and accept the portrait
