The diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Vaslav Nijinsky was probably the greatest dancer of all time - the God of the Dance - and his diary must have been one of the most extraordinary and moving books ever written. It was written in 1918-19 in St Moritz, where Nijinsky had retired, suffering extreme mental agony, in an attempt to escape the shadow of Diaghilev - the man who made him as a dancer, and broke him as a coherent personality. It is amazing that, grappling with insanity, Nijinsky was able to communicate his feelings so lucidly. Like van Gogh's letters, his diary is a rare and precious document. "Vaslav Nijinsky" is a film very much in the same tradition as "Vincent - The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh", using the words from his diary and the many existing images from the Ballet Russe. In this film however, the camera 'dances' and we see from Nijinsky's point of view what it feels like to be a dancer. We follow the mind of a genius as he releases his delicate hold upon reality, and staggers along the outer verge of reason towards the end. Van Gogh said there's nothing more artistic than to love people. Nijinsky said, "...my madness is my love for mankind..." Both were seekers of "that white light", both wanted nothing but the truth."

The widower ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"THE WIDOWER is an unconventional film that uses music and poetry as the narrative rather than dialogue. It's based on poetry by Les Murray and was co-written by Lyndon Terracini whose voice is heard in the songs composed by Elena Kats-Chernin. It's about the stifled relationship between a father and son after the early death of a much loved wife and mother. The father is paralysed by the pain of his loss and unable to properly care for his son. The Boy is placed in a distant boarding school and when he returns to the homestead in the forest he is confronted not only by the past but also by the impending death of his father."--Container
