Lord of the flies by William Golding( Visual )
29 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 2,236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the hands of the renowned experimental theater director Peter Brook, William Golding's legendary novel about the primitivism lurking beneath civilization becomes a film as raw and ragged as the lost boys at its center. Taking an innovative documentary-like approach, Brook shot Lord of the Flies with an off-the-cuff naturalism, seeming to record a spontaneous eruption of its characters' ids. The result is a rattling masterpiece, as provocative as its source material
Never cry wolf by Farley Mowat( Visual )
5 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Story of a life-changing experience for a biologist studying the wolves in Canada's inhospitable North. A green young biologist named Tyler (Smith), is sent by the Canadian government to "prove" that the wolves are depleting the caribou herds, but what he finds is a natural world in perfect harmony where he becomes a tolerated outsider. Dumped unprepared in the wilds by a hard drinking bush pilot (Dennehy), Tyler learns survival skills from the aged Eskimo (Ittimangnaq) who saves his life. He learns the rules of coexistence from a neighboring wolf (which results in a literal pissing contest as man and beast mark their respective territories). Tyler's journey culminates in a majestic run with the wolf pack, an exhilarating sequence where, for an instant, he becomes one with the wild natural environment
