Manufactured Landscapes by Jennifer Baichwal( visu )
30 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,216 libraries worldwide
This is a striking new documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of "manufactured landscapes" -- quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines and dams -- Burtynsky creates stunningly beautiful art from civilization's materials and debris. 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. The film follows him through China, as he shoots the evidence and 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. With breathtaking sequences, such as the opening tracking shot through an almost endless factory, the filmmakers also extend the narratives of Burtynsky's photographs, allowing us to meditate on our impact on the planet and witness both the epicenters of industrial endeavor and the dumping grounds of its waste

"Born in Eastern Kentucky, [Shelby Lee] Adams has devoted 30 years of his life to visiting and making portraits of families living in Appalachia, those who have been misrepresented in the media and derogatorily referred to as 'hillbillies' ... [The film] also delves into the controversy that surrounds Adams' work, with hot debate amongst the critics, and revealing commentary from his friends and subjects ... along the way, we get to know both Adams and the extraordinary people who stand in front of his camera."--Container

Deux de la vague by Emmanuel Laurent( visu )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in French and German and held by 253 libraries worldwide
Dokumentarfilm über François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard und die "Nouvelle Vague". Dabei geht es auch um den Bruch, der sich Ende der 1960er-Jahre zwischen den beiden Filmemachern wegen unterschiedlicher Haltungen zum Politischen auftat. Im Mittelpunkt des vor allem aus Filmausschnitten und Archivmaterial montierten Films steht die lange, äußerst fruchtbare, auf gemeinsamen cineastischen Neigungen und Visionen beruhende Freundschaft zwischen den beiden und anderen Mitstreitern der "Nouvelle Vague". Ein höchst informativer, anregender Ausflug in ein zentrales Kapitel der Filmgeschichte. [film-dienst]
