Junebug( Visual )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Junebug is a deceptively simple, deeply resonant story about the inherent loneliness of family, embracing the texture of a world the movies rarely visit. Three years have passed since George has been home, and he is bringing his bride, Chicago art dealer Madeleine. His family--father Eugene, mother Peg, brother Johnny and sister-in-law Ashley--await them with a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and dread. Junebug sounds a paean to yearning, alienation, and endless hope, in the face of the enormous distances that can divide two people, separated by two ways of life

Science is fiction : 23 films by Jean Painlevé( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before Jacques Cousteau and Richard Attenborough, a Frenchman named Jean Painlevé made documentaries that captured the natural world in a unique manner. "Science Is Fiction" collects 23 of these short films. Painlevé (1902-89) spent his life straddling the arts and the sciences, studying biology at the Sorbonne, but also hanging out with Man Ray and Luis Buñuel. Long fascinated by marine life, Painlevé helped develop the underwater camera, one of the first handheld cameras, and high-magnification lenses that allowed him to observe creatures like sea urchins, jellyfish, and mollusks in their natural habitats. Though relatively obscure in the United States, Jean Painlevé's films embrace genre, combining documentary, educational film, and avant-garde experimentalism to create an aesthetic that captures the fantastic by means of the purely factual

Painful by Yo La Tengo (Musical group)( Recording )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The album marked a creative shift from Yo La Tengo's previous work, blending atmospheric and ambient sounds with their famous noise jams. Painful features a much more melodic-driven Yo La Tengo in its hazy, dream-like songwriting. Two versions of the track "Big Day Coming" are present on the album and display the range of musical stylings Yo La Tengo works with; the first version features a simple organ melody accompanied by a soft bass counterpoint and Kaplan's guitar feedback echoing in the background, while the second version is a much more straightforward, shoegaze style with an accompanying organ solo towards the latter part of the song
