Manufactured Landscapes by Jennifer Baichwal( visu )
48 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,381 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

Let it come down : the life of Paul Bowles ( visu )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
One of the most enigmatic artists of the 20th century, writer, composer and wanderer Paul Bowles (1910-1999) is profiled by a filmmaker who has been obsessed with his genius since age nineteen. Set against the dramatic landscape of North Africa, the mystery of Bowles (famed author of The Sheltering Sky) begins to unravel in Jennifer Baichwal’s poetic and moving LET IT COME DOWN: THE LIFE OF PAUL BOWLES. Rare, candid interviews with the reclusive Bowles—at home in Tangier, as well as in New York during an extraordinary final reunion with Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs -are intercut with conflicting views of his supporters and detractors. At the time in his mid-eighties, Bowles speaks with unprecedented candor about his work, his controversial private life and his relationships with Gertrude Stein, Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, the Beats, and his wife and fellow author Jane Bowles

Dr. Krishna Baichwal's three daughters and only son set off on a journey to India, to honour their dead father's request that his ashes be immersed in the Ganges. Children of a Hindu father and English mother, never having lived in India nor learned much about Hinduism, their journey brings them face to face with part of their heritage, which is alien to them, with their grief, and with each other. Despite culture shock, tears, tiring journeys and bad weather, they have the proper rites performed and together, in a place they have chosen, they place their father's ashes in the Ganges

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 leurs parcours : le gigantesque barrage des Trois Gorges qui a forcé l'évacuation de 1, 1 millions de personnes" -- Tiré du site Web de l'ONF
