Traviata et nous by Philippe Béziat( Visual )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in French and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the staging of a major operatic production, Verdi's masterpiece, "La Traviata," starring world-famous French coloratura soprano Natalie Dessay and directed by the celebrated Jean-François Sivardier. Over two months, filmmaker Philippe Béziat follows the production's development from opening rehearsals to glorious realization, with music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Louis Langrée. Becoming Traviata captures key dramatic and intimate moments as the stage director and his diva invent, and then re-invent their incarnation of Violetta. While the leading cast rehearses in what look like yoga outfits, on a bare stage with minimal props, other pieces of the production are coming together. From set design to the chorus' performance, every element is given close attention. The film transcends the traditional peek at the mise en scene of the modern staging of a classic. Becoming Traviata shines light on a question essential to the performing arts: "How does one become a character?"--Publisher's website

Comprendre la mondialisation I by Brice Couturier( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in French and Undetermined and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La mondialisation progresse chaque jour dans nos esprits. Elle sert à expliquer des dynamiques politiques, des bouleversements économiques, des problèmes sociaux, mais ses mécanismes propres restent souvent dans l'ombre. Car la mondialisation a ses partisans et ses adversaires radicaux, elle fait parfois l'objet de jugements moraux qui empêchent une juste appréciation de sa complexité.
 Ce cycle suggère de l'aborder sous l'angle de la connaissance et de la réflexion. Pour éclairer ce processus aux effets multiples et souvent opposés, seront invités des universitaires et des spécialistes de toutes disciplines : économistes, politologues, juristes, sociologues, géographes, scientifiques... Bien sûr, le débat contradictoire aura toujours sa place, mais un débat éclairé par un savoir approfondi.
 Les quatre premières séances exploreront la mondialisation de l'économie afin d'approfondir les questions que chacun se pose sur les inégalités, les problèmes de développement des pays pauvres, les effets de la concurrence sur les pays développés, le rôle des organismes internationaux de régulation.
 Les rencontres ultérieures appréhenderont la mondialisation dans la pluralité de ses effets : sur la politique, la culture, les mutations de l'information, la transformation et la perception des espaces géographiques, la criminalité et le terrorisme, le droit et l'environnement. Elles conduiront à s'interroger sur la mondialisation comme manière de penser le monde et de vivre dans le monde

Nés en 68 : nous nous aimeront jusqu'à la mort( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A group of revolutionary students experiences rebellion, enlightenment, and change while establishing a commune devoted to free love, anarchy, and nudism, only to see their children eventually engage in a similarly styled rebellion 20 years later. The year was 1968 [France]: Catherine, Yves, and Hervé were 20 years old, and the revolt in May had turned their lives upside down. Enamored by the concept of communal utopia, the three friends move into an abandoned farm in the Lot region and establish a commune. Over time, their longing for freedom and personal accomplishment finds many of the friends walking away from the micro-society they worked so diligently to establish. Flash forward to 1989, when Catherine and Yves' children witness the fall of communism and the onset of the AIDS epidemic. Much like their parents years before, the disillusioned youths begin to question the generation that preceded them while longing for a better world than the one they were born into."
