The exiles by Kent Mackenzie( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
"The Exiles" of the title are displaced Native Americans, living in late 1950s Los Angeles on Bunker Hill, a depressed area connected to the rest of the city by the Angels Flight trolley. The Indians were already exiles, from the moment they lost their ancestral lands and were confined to reservations. Starting on Friday afternoon and closing Saturday morning, the film follows pregnant Yvonne, her husband Homer, and their Mexican acquaintance Tommy Reynolds. Yvonne cooks dinner, Homer and Tommy drop her off at an "all-nite" movie and go to a bar, where they join a group on a joyride out to a hill--Hill X--and drunkenly greet the morning with tribal songs and dancing, while Yvonne sleeps in her neighbor's bed. A beautifully photographed slice of down-and-almost-out life, this is a portrait of women and men who are depressed over their diaspora, poverty, loneliness, alienation, lack of education and opportunity, and trying to escape the grip of a durable Los Angeles nightmare
The great train robbery : and other primary works by Edwin S Porter( visu )
2 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 338 libraries worldwide
"The genesis of the motion picture medium is recreated in this collection of films from cinema's formative period. More than crucial historical artifacts, these films reveal the foundation from which the styles and stories of the contemporary cinema would later arise. An animated rendering of Eadweard Muybridge's primitive motion studies (1877-85) begins the program, immediately defining the compound appeal of cinema as both a scientific marvel and sensational popular entertainment. This is followed by the works of Louis and Auguste Lumière."--Publisher
Comedy, spectacle and new horizons ( visu )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
"By 1907 the cinema's initial growing pains had subsided and fairly distinct generic categories of production were established. This volume of The Movies Begin examines some of these integral works that begin to reflect the modern day cinema -- punctuated with authentic hand-tinted lantern slides used during early theatrical exhibition. Visual comedy, with notable elements of slapstick, is represented in Pathé Frères' The Policeman's Little Run (1907), Bangville Police (1913, marking the first appearance of the legendary Keystone Kops) and Max Linder's Troubles Of A Grass Widower (1908). Best remembered today as a major influence on Charlie Chaplin, Linder was one of the first and most popular stars of the cinema. The comic potential of such a basic device as an undercranked camera is exhibited in Pathés Onésime, Horloger (Onésime, Clock-maker, 1912). Alice Guy-Blaché's Making An American Citizen (1912) is an excellent example of the films of social conscience, always an undercurrent beneath the apparently smooth surfaces of commercial productions. Released the very same week was D.W. Griffith's A Girl And Her Trust, a superb film of wide emotional range and great technical virtuosity made near the end of his tenure at the Biograph Company. Nero, Or The Fall Of Rome (1909) strains at conventional film limitations in dimension and duration, looking forward to the revolutionary Italian epics (Cabiria, The Last Days Of Pompeii) that followed a few years later. Equally prophetic are the dazzling animations showcased in the Vitograph Company's Windsor McCay And His Animated Pictures (1911)."--Publisher
J'accuse by Abel Gance( visu )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in French and No Linguistic Content and held by 227 libraries worldwide
The story of a woman, her brutal, jealous husband and a pacifist poet who also loves her. The men find themselves in an army unit together and there find common purpose and frienship only to both ultimately be destroyed in the waste and horror of World War I. In final scenes the war dead rise up and return to confront the living demanding proof that their deaths were justified
Experimentation and discovery ( visu )
4 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 216 libraries worldwide
"More than any other decade, the first ten years of the moving picture saw the greatest amount of experimentation and development. Ranging from the ingeniously creative to the audacious, the films represented in this volume offer a sampling of the primitive masterworks that allowed the technical novelty of the cinema to so quickly flourish into an artistically expressive medium. In the films of Cecil Hepworth, one witnesses a primal use of titles (How It Feels To Be Run Over, 1900) and some other rather gruesome visual comedy (Explosion Of A Motor Car, 1900). A Visit To Peek Frean And Co.'s Biscuit Works (1906) by G.H. Cricks features the extensive use of indoor arc lighting; at the same time being a key transitional film between the early actualities and a more involved form of non-fiction filmmaking that would ultimately blossom into the documentary. From France's Pathé Frères come films that are alternately titillating (Par Le Trou De Serrue/Peeping Tom, 1901), awe-inspiring (Aladin, Or The Wonderful Lamp, 1906), colorful (Magic Bricks, 1908) and dramatic (Revolution In Russia, 1905, which depicts the same event as Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin). Particularly striking is History Of A Crime (1901), in which a criminal's memories are visually rendered through a unique bit of production design. This volume concludes with several works from the Edison Manufacturing Co., including the first known advertising film (Dewar's - It's Scotch, 1898) and Edwin S. Porter's The Dream Of A Rarebit Fiend (1906, a stunning visual fantasy adapted from the comics of Windsor McCay, whose animation can be glimpsed in vol. 5 of this series."--Publisher
