Nuit et brouillard Night and fog by Alain Resnais( visu )
49 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,973 libraries worldwide
"Called the greatest film of all time by director Francois Truffaut, this legendary documentary from 1955, was directed by Alain Resnais, one of the pivotal figures in the 'New Wave' that revolutionised French cinema in the 1950s. Though only thirty minutes in length, the film is devastating in its impact. Night and Fog refers to the arrival of prisoners in Auschwitz under the cover of darkness and also the ultimate failure of the Nazis at Nuremberg to take responsibility for it. Written by Jean Cayrol, a holocaust survivor, and poetically narrated by Michel Bouquet, its gruesome images seem like a surreal nightmare."--Kanopy
Composing for the films by Hanns Eisler( Book )
39 editions published between 1947 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 846 libraries worldwide
This classic account of the nature of film music aesthetics was first published in 1947. Its value comes from a unique combination of talents and experience enjoyed by the book's authors. Eisler's time at Hollywood gave him a particular insight on the technical questions which arise for composers when music is used in the production of films; while Adorno was able to contribute on wide aesthetic and sociological matters as well as specifically musical questions. Above all, the authors envisaged the book as a contribution to the study of modern, industrialised culture; and, in this respect, it has a particular importance to the whole area of Cultural Studies

Kuhle wampe oder, Wem gehört die Welt by Slatan Dudow( visu )
18 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in German and No Linguistic Content and held by 177 libraries worldwide
This film is a docu-drama focused on working class life in Berlin during the early thirties. Kuhle Wampe was a camp for the unemployed on the outskirts of the city. Anni, stifled by Kuhle Wampe's inhabitants' desire for bourgeois respectability finds new purpose in a left-wing youth movement. Brecht, co-author Ottwalt and friend, young Bulgarian director, Dudow, saw the film as contrasting 'the petty bourgeois world and the politically conscious workers' sports environment ... [to] show how young people grow out of middle-class confines into proletarian solidarity', to quote Dudow. The film's didacticism (characters as representative of their class) is combined with an almost lyrical naturalism. Kuhle Wampe was banned by the Nazis in 1933
