At the end of WWII, 60 minutes of raw film in an East German archive was discovered.

Gerhard Richter painting ( visu )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 319 libraries worldwide
Born in 1932 in Dresden, Gerhard Richter is considered one of the world's greatest living painters. Now nearly 80 years old, he has agreed to talk about his work as a small film crew documents his creative process. Blunt, provocative, unashamedly curmudgeonly, and iconoclastic (but never cynical), the artist says he's 'interested in things he doesn't understand,' that 'painting is a secretive business,' and that 'each painting is an assertion that tolerates no company.'

Durakovo, le village desℓ fous Village of fools ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in Russian and held by 22 libraries worldwide
Durakovo. The ironically named Village of Fools. A secluded town 90 miles outside Moscow brews old ideals in hopes of a revitalized regime. Mikhail Fyodorovich, (aka Mikhail Morozov) rules this small community with concepts of God, Tsar and Fatherland. That happiness is only around God, the Tsar does God's bidding and the people work hard in life to achieve the will of the Tsar. Prayer, labor and the political notion in contrast of Western Democracy is of frequent discussion. Mikhail makes known his stance in politics frequently, with those in his charge or with politicians from the capitol: to rebuild Russia to its former glory, criticize their leaders of the last thirty years and denounce Western ideals. He preaches the hand of God, the foundation he is laying, the old ways he is restoring, will one day win out over the US and its politics. A mix of hard religion, firm politics and strict labor play out before the camera with little intervention or direction from the filmmaker
