Love's labour's lost : a romantic musical comedy by Kenneth Branagh( visu )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 758 libraries worldwide
The handsome young King of Navarre and his three friends--Berowne, Longaville, and Dumaine--make a pledge to retreat for three years to study literature and art, depriving themselves of all comforts, including the company of women, for the duration. The pledge survives intact for exactly as long as it takes the beautiful Princess of France and her three friends--Rosaline, Maria, and Katherine--to travel to Navarre on a diplomatic mission from her father. Shakespeare purists will probably be horrified that Branagh has juxtaposed the Bard with classics by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and George and Ira Gershwin, in a loving homage to the great musicals of the '30s. He has also thrown in every cliché of said musicals, reviving the abandoned genre with 90 minutes of elaborately staged flossy, frothy, campy, cotton-candy fun

Dance for camera ( visu )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 302 libraries worldwide
Presents six short dance films from the 2002 Dance Camera West festival. Reines d'un jour features six tumbling bodies on mountain slopes of the Alps, caught between heaven and Earth, among the cows and the villagers. In Measure, a relationship emerges between a man and woman that is revealed as much through their eyes as through the expressive timing of their rhythmically intricate steps. In Rest in peace bizarre behavior and past secrets emerge as four siblings bury their parents. The Village trilogy, inspired by the displacement and destruction of World War II, returns to the physical language of early cinema to evoke the power of the spirit. Cornered is a black and white film that redefines gravity as an attractive force of right angles. Contrecoup depicts an urban environment torn by violence, disorder, and loneliness where the light is sinister, daily life is hostile, and sleep is a nightmare

In Venice, craftsmen and fellow architects fondly remember Scarpa's endless experimentation with color and textures
Composition ( visu )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
Everyone has the desire to arrange things in a way that is most pleasing to the eye. In painting, composition involves arranging every ingredient-shape, color, texture, and light-so that working together, they create artistic balance. In this program, artist Ray Richardson deliberately chooses a long, slim canvas to challenge his compositional abilities. As he confronts his quest to create a cinemascopic work, students begin to appreciate the composition techniques of painters such as Piero della Francesca, Tintoretto, Degas, and Matisse
Fantasy architecture : 1500-2036 by Hayward Gallery( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 237 libraries worldwide
"The towns and cities that we inhabit are the survivors of a much larger world that was never built - of visions of the future that remain on paper due to lack of funds, political changes or because they were technically ahead of their time. How might the world look today had the realities of history been different? And how close will the architecture of the future be to that already familiar from science fiction films and the fantastic virtual environments of computer games?" "Fantasy Architecture proposes answers to these questions by focusing on around 130 imagined buildings, structures and schemes from the late medieval period to the present. Artists and architects include Robert Adam, Archigram, Charles Barry, Etienne-Louis Boullee, William Chambers, FAT, Foreign Office Architects, Foster and Partners, Erno Goldfinger, Louis Hellman, Inigo Jones, Berthold Lubetkin, Edwin Lutyens, Eric Mendelsohn, Nils Norman, Claes Oldenburg, Joseph Paxton, Sir John Soane, Softroom and Paolo Soleri."--BOOK JACKET
