Mario Bava maestro of the macabre ( visu )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"The grand master of Italian horror, Mario Bava, captivated audiences around the world with his dreamlike, horrifying, and visually breathtaking films, all of which relied on creativity and visual trickery rather than big budgets. Though marketed as B-movies during the 1960s and 1970s, Bava's films have earned a large cult following for their artistry and their ability to chill viewers with uncanny skill. From his classic first feature, Black Sunday, to rapturous color favorites like Black Sabbath and Danger: diabolik, Bava's work is discussed in depth in this program, which also reveals how much he influenced later horror/sci-fi films, not to mention future generations of directors like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, and Brian DePalma"--Container
World War Two ( visu )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
A compelling look at the portrayal of war, revealing the myths, propaganda & rise of realism in the war film. British wartime films were made as propaganda but also drew on a strong documentary tradition. In Italy, Roberto Rossellini filmed Roma Citta' Aperta during the war, using real soldiers and amateur actors. The film became a classic of neo-realism, symbolic of heroic resistance in Italy. In Japan after the war a powerful strand of anti-war films developed, such as Nobi, that stressed the horrors rather than the heroism of war. Germany's Das Boot showed war not as heroic action, but as days of tedium in cramped conditions, interspersed with terrifying action. More recently Hollywood's Saving Private Ryan shows a realistic and harrowing portrayal of the D-Day landings. Films include: In Which We Serve - Rome Open City (Roma Citta' Aperta)- Nobi (Fires on the Plain) - Das Boot - Idi I Smotri - Saving Private Ryan

Romance is part of the attraction of the cinema, with its gorgeous stars and passionate onscreen (and offscreen) love affairs.

Music behind the scenes 2002 complete series ( visu )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Episode five, The Chase examines how music is used in films to emphasise a chase scene, illustrated with selected film scenes. Episode six, The independents, is about the collaboration between film directors and composers, working in the independent sector. Discusses the advantages of freedom and room for change, as the independent film-makers are more prepared to take chances and experiment. They are more inventive, innovative and visionary in their search for the most expressive means to illustrate their stories. The main disadvantage for them is budgetary constraints. In the 1960s, the younger generation of film-makers began to make themselves felt in movies. It all started with the film, The graduate, which features the pop sound track by Simon and Garfunkel. Then, Easy rider, a low budget project, whose sound track album became an essential collector's item for any self-respecting young person. Some 20 years later, 'Hip-hop' music was used as background music against a back-drop of housing project in Brooklyn. Many independents are now making films for studios, thereby carrying over the sensitivity, interesting and quirky aspects into film-making and studios, and nurturing innovation
