2 editions published between 1960 and 2004 in Italian and held by 1,317 libraries worldwide
Marcello Rubini, a frustrated 'serious' writer, does tabloid journalism to make ends meet. He spends every evening in Via Veneto awaiting the next scandal, party invitation, or sexual proposition. From an enigmatic woman named Maddalena, to wealthy intellectual Steiner's penthouse, to a famous actress named Sylvia, Marcello finds himself caught up in the carnival spectacle of nightlife and its fleeting happiness. The empty evenings seem to weave together, a decadent rhythm punctuated only by the regret of the following morning. Marcello is consumed by self-doubt and unable to enjoy the success he has, and so stumbles on, dreaming of attaining the elusive sweet life

Katyn by Andrzej Wajda( visu )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in Polish and held by 772 libraries worldwide
Katyn est avant tout un film sur la lutte incessante pour la mémoire et la vérité. C'est aussi un règlement de compte sans compromis avec le mensonge qui a forcé la Pologne populaire à oublier ses héros. Anna, la femme d'un capitaine d'un régiment des Uhlans, attend le retour de son mari. Elle ne peut se résoudre à l'idée qu'il ait été assassiné par les Russes. En avril 1943, l'épouse d'un général apprend la mort de son mari quand les Allemands découvrent l'existence de charniers dans la forêt de Katyn contenant des milliers d'officiers polonais. Silence et mensonges brisent le coeur d'Agnieszka, la soeur d'un pilote qui a connu le même sort. Quel sens les mots Patrie et Liberté ont-ils dans un État polonais d'après-guerre tombé sous la dépendance de l'Union Soviétique?

The bridge ( visu )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 661 libraries worldwide
"In 2004, 24 people jumped to their deaths from the Golden Gate Bridge. More people have chosen to end their lives at the Golden Gate Bridge than anywhere else in the world."--End titles. What makes the suicides at the bridge so unusual is that they take place in broad daylight, in front of people in a busy place - unlike most suicides, which are enacted in extreme privacy. Filmmaker Eric Steel and his crew spent 2004 filming the bridge during daylight hours from two locations, grappling with the ethical question of when to alert authorities, and their responsibilities as observers. The film features interviews with the families and friends of some of the victims that year, as well as one person who changed his mind. Offering a glimpse into one of the darkest, most impenetrable corners of the human mind, the film also interrogates society's ability to blithely ignore the grim realities of depression, mental illness, and drug abuse that underly so many suicides. These are only some of the factors discussed by the film, common to the twenty four people who died at the Golden Gate Bridge in 2004, who are now linked together forever by a 4 second fall in an otherwise magically, mysteriously beautiful place
