Manufactured landscapes by Jennifer Baichwall( visu )
20 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and French and held by 1,129 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

"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

Act of God by Jennifer Baichwal( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
"Is being hit by lightning a random natural occurrence or a predestined event? Accidents, chance, fate and the elusive quest to make sense out of tragedy underpin [this] ... new documentary, an elegant meditation on the metaphysical effects of being struck."--Container
Deux de la vague ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 238 libraries worldwide
Directors Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut changed the face of cinema forever as members of the French New Wave. They also happened to be best friends. This film documents their combative and creative relationship during their time as writers for the Cahiers du cinema, their work on The 400 blows and Breathless, and their dramatic falling out following the worker and student strikes of May 1968. It also presents the unique bond both filmmakers shared with the actor Jean-Pierre Léaud, who started his career as a child and grew up with Godard and Truffaut as brilliantly bickering father figures. Includes clips of over 30 films

Payback offers a fascinating look at debt: how it influences relationships, societies, governing structures and even the fate of the planet. The film explores the link between debtor and creditor in a variety of contexts and situations (a years-long blood feud between two Albanian families; the BP oil spill; tomato farm workers in Florida and their bosses; media mogul Conrad Black and the US justice system) while addressing debt in all its forms: societal, personal, environmental, spiritual, criminal and, of course, economic

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Depuis plus de trois décennies, le photographe canadien Edward Burtynsky croque les images d'une nature souillée par la pollution et l'industrialisation, qu'il développe ensuite sur des panneaux de très grands formats. Dépotoirs, terrains vagues, usines, marécages, sont les sujets de ses photographies, d'un esthétisme raffiné, prises au Canada et dans le reste du monde. La cinéaste Jennifer Baichwal l'a suivi lors d'un voyage en Chine, pays mythique dont Burtynsky voulait documenter les bouleversements industriels. Étape ultime de leur parcours: le gigantesque barrage des Trois Gorges, qui a forcé l'évacuation de 1,1 million de personnes

Godard trifft Truffaut diese Freundschaft veränderte die Filmgeschichte für immer = Deux de la Vague ( visu )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and French and held by 3 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]
