Manufactured Landscapes by Jennifer Baichwal( visu )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 1,169 libraries worldwide
Edward Burtynsky has gained international recognition for his photographs of what he calls manufactured landscapes. He argues that we have reached past the point now where we are at the mercy of the environment--our planet now lives and dies at our mercy. This is not meant to be a frightening concept, though many of the images are sobering, in this chilling but ultimately beautiful documentary on what industrialization is doing to man and the world as we know it. Or used to know it. Manufactured Landscapes tells the story of these images, and how Burtynsky came to be so fascinated with the concept of human design. It follows a recent photo shoot in China, photographing the effects of that country's massive industrial revolution, showing us a glimpse of what it's like behind the scenes for a famous photographer in action

Toscanini In His Own Words : An exceptional documentary drama on the Italian maestro ( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
A docufiction on the great Arturo Toscanini directed by well-known film-maker Larry Weinstein who pushes the boundaries of conventional documentary storytelling by borrowing tools from fiction films, including dramatic reconstructions and historical cinematic stylings. Arturo Toscanini (1867-1957), arguably the greatest and most famous conductor in history, was paradoxically one of the most private. He never granted interviews, left diaries or journals of any kind. But during the last years of his life, his son Walter secretly recorded 150 hours of intimate conversations that Toscanini shared with friends and family who visited his home. Toscanini In His Own Words, is based on these tapes which remained vaulted for more than 50 years. Recreated conversations reveal aspects of the Maestro never seen before. Subjects such as his loves, opinions about colleagues, his clashes with Mussolini and Hitler, his personal memories of Verdi, Puccini, Furtwangler, Stokowski, as well as his greatest joys and causes of his endemic sadness are all part of his frank conversation. Interwoven throughout the film are many of Toscanini's greatest musical performances
