Last train home Gui tu lie che ( visu )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in Chinese and held by 853 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
Rip! a remix manifesto ( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 267 libraries worldwide
Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'
Nollywood Babylon ( visu )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Chronicles the wild world of "Nollywood," a term coined in the early '90s to describe the world's fastest-growing national cinema, the Nigerian film industry. The film delves first-hand into Nigeria's explosive homegrown movie industry, producing 2500 films a year, most for under $10,000. Peppered with interviews with producers, directors and actors, film clips and buoyed by a rousing score fusing Afropop and traditional sounds, Nollywood Babylon celebrates the distinctive power of Nigerian cinema now bursting beyond the borders of Africa

Dans certains pays, on ne s'embarrasse pas des syndicalistes.

Das Coca Cola nicht nur zuckersüss ist, zeigt dieser endrückliche Film über Blut, Tränen und Limonade. Abfüllfabriken in Kolumbien, Guatemala und der Türkei, in denen die Menschenrechte mit Füssen getreten werden, mutmassliche Kidnappings, Folter und Ermordungen von Gewerkschaftsführern. Gutierrez und Garcia ist mit The Coca Cola Case eine packende Dokumentation gelungen, die einen fahlen Nachgeschmack hinterlässt

Sur le Yangzi by Yung Chang( visu )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Sur la rivière Yangzi, qui sera sous peu complètement transformée par la construction du barrage des Trois Gorges, vogue un luxueux bateau de croisière. À bord, Yu Shui, 16 ans, laînée dune famille de paysans pauvres et analphabètes, travaille à la plonge. À linstar de deux millions de Chinois, dont plusieurs victimes des exactions de fonctionnaires brutaux et corrompus, les parents de ladolescente devront quitter la rive, où ils habitent, avant la montée des eaux, qui engloutiront les rives. Tandis que Yu Shui se morfond dans la cuisine du bateau, larrogant Chen Bo Yu, fils unique dune famille de la classe moyenne, profite des largesses de la clientèle, essentiellement composée de touristes occidentaux. Le film du Sino-Canadien Yung Chang pose un regard à la fois fascinant et désolant sur les conséquences humaines, culturelles et écologiques de lérection du gigantesque barrage des Trois Gorges, devenu le symbole des ambitions de la nouvelle Chine. Aux témoignages déchirants de certains <<déplacés>> et à lillustration poignante de leurs déboires viennent se greffer des moments plus légers teintés dune réjouissante ironie. La réalisation, très assurée, emprunte souvent au cinéma-vérité. Ce parti pris, plutôt étonnant compte tenu du sujet, savère en définitive efficace et porteur. De plus, la composition de léquipe de réalisation, totalement chinoise, permet sans doute dapprocher au plus près les inquiétudes et les espoirs des << déplacés >>

The frog princes ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"A theatre troupe works tirelessly to put on a play. The challenges they face are typical of the dramas that unfold behind the scenes of any live show. There's the backstage politics, the forgotten lines, the missed cues, the romances and the rivalries. But for this troupe, the stakes are a bit higher: each cast member faces intellectual, developmental and mental health disabilities. Led by their charismatic mentor, the troupe learn how to hone[r] their talents and perform with their fellow cast-mates, all the while working through their personal struggles to mount an ambitious adaptation of The Frog and the Princess."--Back of container
