Buzkashi! ( visu )
1 edition published in 2012 in Tajik and held by 45 libraries worldwide
Donning protective gear that includes tank helmets from old wars, the players of Tajikistan's polo-like sport of Buzkashi prepare for competition as if going into battle. Rivalries, alliances, and political intrigues pit ancient values of honor and integrity against ego-driven hunger for power and wealth, and this film, both an exploration of the game and a character study of three of its top players, opens an intriguing window on this former Soviet republic. While scenes of hundreds of riders on horseback racing across the plateaus of this mountainous country are striking and viscerally thrilling, the personal lives of the protagonists--husbands and fathers devoted to their families and with deep roots in their communities--emerge as surprisingly familiar
The bodybuilder and I ( visu )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 38 libraries worldwide
Every June, 59-year-old Bill Friedman waxes his body, strips down the smallest bikini shorts imaginable, slathers himself with bronzing spray and then struts his way across a stage where he flexes his impressive muscles and gyrates before a crowd of hundreds. Bill is a competitive bodybuilder - a former world champ in the age 50-60 category. And now he's determined to win his title back. Documentary director Bryan Friedman is 26. Bill - Bryan's dad - hasn't been around since Bryan was a baby. Over the last two decades, the two have spent virtually no time together. Bryan's feelings are complicated - but mostly negative, with a deep dose of embarrassment over Bill's muscle-bound body and single-minded bodybuilding obsession. Now, Bryan is chronicling his dad's attempt to make it back to the top. And somehow - between bench presses, tanning sessions, costume shopping and the occasional furtive cigarette - the two men are coming to know, and maybe even sort of understand, each other

Cave of forgotten dreams by Werner Herzog( visu )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
Le 18 décembre 1994 en Ardèche, Jean-Marie Chauvet, Éliette Brunel et Christian Hillaire, trois spéléologues amateurs, découvrent par hasard l'existence d'une grotte magnifique, au sol jonché d'ossements d'animaux et aux parois rocheuses ornées de dessins illustrant le mouvement de lions, de rhinocéros, de chevaux et d'ours. Une découverte capitale, puisque ces fresques trouvées dans cette grotte, désormais baptisée Chauvet, datent de 36 000 ans av. J.-C., ce qui en font les plus anciens exemples d'art pariétal connus à ce jour. Bénéficiant d'une autorisation spéciale, le cinéaste Werner Herzog a pu pénétrer dans la caverne, trop fragile pour être ouverte au public, dans le but de faire partager à tous ce voyage au plus près de l'origine de l'espèce humaine

Hundreds of hydroelectric dams in Panama. Incinerators burning garbage in India. Biogas extracted from palm oil in Honduras. Eucalyptus forests harvested for charcoal in Brazil. What do these projects have in common? They are all receiving carbon credits for offsetting pollution created somewhere else. But what impact are these offsets having? Are they actually reducing emissions? And what about the people and the communities where these projects have been set up? THE CARBON RUSH takes us around the world to meet the people most impacted. They are the least heard in the cacophony surrounding this emerging "green-gold" multi-billion dollar carbon industry. From indigenous rain forest dwellers having their way of life completely threatened, to dozens of Campesinos assassinated, to the livelihood of waste pickers at landfills taken away. THE CARBON RUSH travels across four continents and brings us up close to projects working through the United Nations, Kyoto Protocol designed Clean Development Mechanism.
