15-year old Mia is a foul-mouthed, belligerent teen living on an Essex estate [public housing] with her mother Joanne and precocious little sister Tyler. She has been excluded from school and is awaiting admission to a referrals unit, spending her days aimlessly. Her only escape--besides smoking, drinking an occasional swiped bottle of booze, and fist fighting with the neighbor girls--is hip-hop dancing, which she practices in an abandoned apartment and hopes to someday turn into a living. Then Joanne brings home handsome, extroverted new boyfriend Connor, and he and Mia strike up a tentative friendship. He even encourages her one interest, dancing. What could go wrong?

Peter Greenaway's collaboration with the artist Tom Phillips transforms one of the greatest and best known works of art, Dante's 600 year old Inferno, into a post-modern television piece. Utilizing radical new visual techniques, Greenaway and Phillips illustrate and illuminate Dante's text with dazzling imagery and a soundtrack that comments, counterpoints and clarifies. There are visual footnotes delivered by relevant authorities, and these often perform the function of narration as well as explanation. The result is a multilayered video journey through Dante's vision of the underworld, or hell

Over your cities grass will grow by Sophie Fiennes( visu )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in French and English and held by 180 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

Tate, adolescent dérangé, est encore perçu et traité comme un enfant par sa grand-mère qui, selon lui, viole sans cesse son intimité et son grand-père qu'il accuse de tricher au scrabble; Tate déteste ses grands-parents pour des raisons pourtant anodines et ira jusqu'à les tuer dans leur sommeil, poussé semble-t-il par une pulsion sexuelle. Shawn entretient une relation sexuelle avec Rhonda, une éphébophile qui est mariée et qui est la mère de sa petite amie Hannah. Il est amoureux d'elle et souffre de cette situation. Peaches vit sous la morale pathologiquement puritaine d'un père veuf qui, de douleur, tombe progressivement dans la folie. Il devient fou de rage lorsqu'il surprend sa fille en train de faire une fellation à un ami attaché au lit et frappe violemment le garçon qui ne peut se défendre, par la suite il exige de Peaches qu'elle reprenne, au cours de cérémonials macabres, le rôle de l'absente en portant la robe de mariée de sa mère."--Site wikipedia.fr, visionné le 13 mars 2015

Death in the Seine by Peter Greenaway( visu )
2 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
"From April, 1795 to September, 1801, three hundred and six bodies were taken from the River Seine in Paris where they were cared for by two mortuary attendants who methodically noted down the particulars of each corpse: its sex, age, hair color, bodily wounds and scars, clothing, if any, and the contents of their pockets. With information later provided by witnesses, it became possible to speculate upon the lives and manner of death of the decedents--a subject all the more intriguing since all of those taken from the Seine had witnessed the French Revolution. Peter Greenaway has used these images to construct a stark and visually shocking film."--Container
