Love's labour's lost by William Shakespeare( visu )

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

On a fishing boat, Len Tabner tackles the challenge of adapting to changing light. How artists such as Masaccio, Turner, and Monet used light in their work is discussed

Dance for camera ( visu )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 5 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
