Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola( visu )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and French and held by 782 libraries worldwide
There is more to the story of Marie Antoinette than the simplistic tale of how a frivolous sovereign helped provoke the uprising that became the French Revolution.

(Producer) Ancient medical science told us our minds and bodies are one. So did philosophers of old. Now modern science and new research are helping us to understand these connections. Bill Moyers talks with physicians, scientists, therapists, and patients--people who are taking a new look at the meaning of sickness and health.

How can we collaborate with our bodies to encourage healing?

Bill T. Jones : still/here ( visu )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 529 libraries worldwide
What is it like to live with a life-threatening illness? Can fear, anger, and joy be translated into movement? In this program, journalist Bill Moyers and filmmaker David Grubin give viewers a rare glimpse into dancer/choreographer Bill T. Jones's highly acclaimed dance, "Still/Here." At workshops around the country, people facing life-threatening illnesses are asked to remember the highs and lows of their lives, and even imagine their own deaths. They then transform their feelings into expressive movement, which Jones incorporates into the dance performed later in the program. Jones demonstrates for Moyers the movements of his own life story-his first encounter with white people, confusion over his sexuality, his partner Arnie Zane's untimely death from AIDS, and Jones's own HIV status. "My job," Jones tells Moyers, "is to evoke the spirit of survival."

Tesla ( visu )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 446 libraries worldwide
"Nikola Tesla has come to be seen by many as a tragic figure, a visionary engineer who died impoverished and largely forgotten--eclipsed by names such as Edison and Marconi. A tireless inventor who registered numerous patents and developed many working prototypes, Tesla would become most famous for his dazzling demonstrations. Audiences flocked to see him send thousands of volts of electricity pulsing through his body, dazzled by the spectacle of the inventor seemingly on fire. Even more read about his claims of receiving signals from outer space and his plans for using the earth's natural charge to distribute free electricity. Tesla the strange wizard and mad scientist overtook Tesla the brilliant engineer--the seer of the wireless world we all live in. Lost in the spectacular rise and fall was the real man, a consummate inventor and dedicated engineer. That his ideas ricocheted from tangible inventions to projections of a future with head-spinning possibilities only partly explained his downfall. Yet it was his technology that helped drive the electrical age in the 20th century, and his vision that imagined the wireless world of the 21st century. In Tesla, American Experience chronicles the life of a man whose ideas revolutionized his time, and ours"--Container
