Last train home Gui tu lie che ( visu )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in Chinese and held by 841 libraries worldwide
"Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as an astonishing 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year's holiday. This mass exodus is the largest human migration on the planet, an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Working over several years in classic verite, Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan... travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades. Emotionally engaging and starkly beautiful, Last Train Home's intimate observation of one fractured family sheds light on the human cost of China's ascendance as an economic superpower." -- Container

Ballerina ( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in Russian and held by 322 libraries worldwide
Ballerina documents the lives of five ballerinas from the world renowned Kirov dance company. The film captures the magical masochism of the Russian prima ballerina with five women who eat, drink, bleed, and sweat ballet. They are Russia's pride and joy--the best at what they do. Each one has become ethereal and a star in her own right, fighting and clawing her way to glory in the Kirov company. The discipline is severe, the path strewn with sights amazing and disturbing, and the dancing truly divine and exquisitely beautiful. In comparison with the reality of what it takes to be a Russian prima ballerina, even as seen in this addmittedly small slice, The Red Shoes is an outrageous fairy tale
The strange disappearance of the bees ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 78 libraries worldwide
Documentary about mass deaths of bees all over the world. Increasingly each spring, beekeepers open their hives to find entire colonies wiped out. Surveys the science through conversations with top researchers such as entomologist May Berenbaum of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and biologist Paul Ehrlich of Stanford's Center for Conservation Biology. Makes a case that the industrial agricultural model is responsible for killing off the pollinators

Greenpeace, the story ( visu )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
The creation of Greenpeace is probably the most exciting and heroic environmental adventure of the 20th century. Although powerful now, at the start it was just a small group of hippies, motivated by their vision of a green and peaceful world. Through unpublished archive footage and interviews with Greenpeace's founders, this extraordinary documentary takes an in-depth and first hand look into the organization that has become synonymous with the ecological movement. Greenpeace's success sprung from their ability to attract the attention of the media through direct action and shocking images. Their willingness to put themselves in harms way brought admiration as well as controversy and ultimately death. It is a story of setbacks, victories and grappling to remain relevant. With the challenges that face the world today, environmental or otherwise, we can take heart from the fact that a handful of twenty somethings can change the world

2 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
"December 2001, Buenos Aires. Five days before Christmas a disturbing silence pervades the city. The day before, frustrated Argentineans looted supermarkets. The government reacted immediately by proclaiming a state of emergency. The situation approaches anarchy for twelve days, in which time five presidents will succeed one another. With never before shown footage, this documentary provides a critical analysis of the events around Christmas 2001. It further includes interviews with militants, victims, cameramen and experts, helping to comprehend the connections between, and ramifications of, the many events that led up to chaos. Who holds the future in the years to come, for this young democracy in danger?" -- Film Ideas website

L'invention de la cuisine ( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Michel Guérard was one of the inventors of Nouvelle Cuisine, shaking up our habits in taste. Forty years later, his desire to "make food as a songbird sings" seems just as strong. Not surprising that he's remained a role model for new generations of chefs. To highlight the freedom of his cuisine inspired by the everyday as well as what's unique about it, Paul Lacoste has chosen to have four amateurs make four of Michel Guérard's recipes. Their experiences respond to his comments and show us that, if cuisine is (almost) child's play, it also requires an element of genius."--Container

L'invention de la cuisine ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"Olivier Roellinger's cuisine delves into childhood - his childhood. In this film by Paul Lacoste, the chef admits how he could never imagine cooking anywhere but in the house where he grew up in Bricourt - a place between reality and dreams. On one sides, we have Cancale with its water, seascapes, wind and trails; and on the other, his childlike imagination with its memories of Saint Malo's pirates and the spice race. From land to sea... this installment... draws us into the very heart of Olivier Roellinger's cooking."--Container
L'invention de la cuisine ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
After filming portraits of French chefs - all men - Paul Lacoste turns his lens to an Italian, Nadia Santini. This film speaks about tradition, heritage, and history, but the focus is squarely on the culinary art of Nadia Santini. Although Nadia's cuisine is often hidden behind the traditions that she is constantly reviving, her absolute sincerity reveals an unassuming pride in her work. From her viewpoint at Dal Pescatore in the northern Italian town of Canneto sull'Oglio, Nadia observes the world around her. In her hands, these traditions, described as "knowledge" by her mother-in-law Nonna Bruna, are translated into a vision of and modernity, offering a different approach to inventing cuisine
