Manufactured Landscapes by Jennifer Baichwal( visu )
29 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,254 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

Every year, 100 million monarch butterflies set off on an incredible journey across North America. These beautiful creatures fly 2,000 miles to reach their remote destination: a tiny area high in the mountains of Mexico.

"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 )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in French and German and held by 255 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]
