100 years of Olympic films : 1912-2012( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spanning fifty-three movies and forty-one editions of the Olympic Games, this set is the culmination of a monumental, award-winning archival project encompassing dozens of new restorations by the International Olympic Committee. The documentaries collected here cast a cinematic eye on some of the most iconic moments in the history of modern sports, spotlighting athletes who embody the Olympic motto of "Faster, Higher, Stronger": Jesse Owens shattering world records on the track in 1936 Berlin, Jean-Claude Killy dominating the Grenoble slopes in 1968, Joan Benoit breaking away to win the Games' first women's marathon in Los Angeles in 1984. In addition to the impressive ten-feature contribution of Bud Greenspan, this stirring collective chronicle of triumph and defeat includes such documentary landmarks as Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia and Kon Ichikawa's Tokyo Olympiad, along with captivating lesser-known works by major directors like Claude Lelouch, Carlos Saura, and Miloš Forman. It also offers a fascinating glimpse of the development of film itself, and of the technological progress that has brought viewers ever closer to the action. Traversing continents and decades, reflecting the social, cultural, and political changes that have shaped our recent history, this movie marathon showcases a hundred years of human endeavor

España 1936-39 : la Guerra Civil = Spagna 1936-39 : la Guerra Civile( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fueron tres años de guerra atroz, de combate y despliegue de los bandos entre julio de 1936 y marzo de 1939. Tras algunas sangrientas batallas, en las cuales la fortuna cambió de un bando a otro, los nacionales tomaron finalmente Madrid en marzo de 1939. La Guerra Civil española, dejó casi medio millón de muertos y se considera hoy como el prólogo, en el corazón de Europa, de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Los bandos en lucha, republicanos del gobierno legal, vencedores de las elecciones de febrero del 36, y los nacionalistas rebeldes, bajo el mando del general Francisco Franco, serían muy pronto los futuros adversarios en el conflicto mundial: por un lado la URSS de Stalin y los voluntarios de las Brigadas Internacionales defensores de la democracia apoyaban la España republicana; por otro lado, las fuerzas de Hitler y Mussolini a la España nacionalista. Ilustrado por cuatro documentales de la época: de "¡Arriba España!" a "¡No pasarán!", incluye dos películas de autor; "¡España, una, grande, libre!" de Giorgio Ferroni y "Los novios de la muerte" de Romolo Marcellini, ambos realizados al acabar la guerra, en 1939, para celebrar una nueva victoria del fascismo
