She has been excluded from school and is awaiting admission to a referrals unit, spending her days aimlessly.

Over your cities grass will grow by Sophie Fiennes( visu )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in French and English and held by 183 libraries worldwide
"In 1993, artist Anselm Kiefer left Buchen, Germany for La Ribaute, a derelict silk factory near Barjac, a town in the south of France. Like a strange, sprawling village, La Ribaute extends over 35 hectares and is composed of old industrial buildings and working studios. From 2000, Kiefer began constructing a series of elaborate installations and paintings, creating pavilions to house them, while also digging a network of tunnels underneath the pavilions. Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow takes you into Kiefer's artistic estate to discover these sights and more - including an underground pool at the cul-de-sac of a tubular iron tunnel embedded within a crypt, a 20-meter tiered concrete amphitheater, and an open landscape of concrete towers assembled like so many card houses. Traversing this landscape, director Sophie Fiennes' critically acclaimed film immerses the audience in the total world and creative process of one of today's most significant and inventive artists."--Container

Oliver and Oswald Deuce, twin zoologists, lose their wives when a swan collides with their car. The driver of the vehicle and only survivor of the crash, Alba Bedwich loses her leg in the tragedy. As the only connection the brothers have to the deceased, they obsess over her. When Alba can't give a reason for the women's deaths, they turn to science for answers, holing up in the zoo to research the origins of life and its decay after death, hoping to find a clue to the human condition. They study the origins of life passively, watching documentaries on evolution. For decay, however, they acquire dead animals from the zoo and film their natural decomposition processes with time-lapse photography. Through coping with their grief, the twins become closer than they've ever been--they don't realize how close--until Alba reveals that she's pregnant with her own set of twins and the father is both of them

Ken Park by Larry Clark( visu )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 44 libraries worldwide
The film focuses on several teenagers and their tormented home lives. Shawn seems to be the most conventional. Tate is brimming with psychotic rage; Claude is habitually harassed by his brutish father and coddled, rather uncomfortably, by his enormously pregnant mother. Peaches looks after her devoutly religious father, but yearns for freedom. They're all rather tight, or so they claim. But they spend precious little time together and none of them seems to know much about one another's family lives. This bizarre dichotomy underscores their alienation, the result of suburban ennui, a teenager's inherent sense of melodrama, and the disturbing nature of their home environments
Élégie de la traversée ( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in Russian and held by 44 libraries worldwide
In Élégie de la traversée, Sokurov crosses vast terrain, sails the high seas, and stumbles through congested cities to arrive at the doors of the empty Boijmans Museum in Rotterdam.

In Rober, schastlivai︠a︡ zhiznʹ, the director meditates on the work of French romantic artist Hubert Robert, whose paintings of lost ruins evoke the same nostalgia and lyricism of Sokurov's own moody films
