Nuit et brouillard Night and fog by Alain Resnais( Visual )

30 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Called the greatest film of all time by director Francois Truffaut, this legendary documentary from 1955, was directed by Alain Resnais, one of the pivotal figures in the 'New Wave' that revolutionised French cinema in the 1950s. Though only thirty minutes in length, the film is devastating in its impact. Night and Fog refers to the arrival of prisoners in Auschwitz under the cover of darkness and also the ultimate failure of the Nazis at Nuremberg to take responsibility for it. Written by Jean Cayrol, a holocaust survivor, and poetically narrated by Michel Bouquet, its gruesome images seem like a surreal nightmare."--Kanopy
Composing for the films by Hanns Eisler( Book )

70 editions published between 1947 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic account of the nature of film music aesthetics was first published in 1947. Its value comes from a unique combination of talents and experience enjoyed by the book's authors. Eisler's time at Hollywood gave him a particular insight on the technical questions which arise for composers when music is used in the production of films; while Adorno was able to contribute on wide aesthetic and sociological matters as well as specifically musical questions. Above all, the authors envisaged the book as a contribution to the study of modern, industrialised culture; and, in this respect, it has a particular importance to the whole area of Cultural Studies

Galileo by Bertolt Brecht( Visual )

4 editions published between 1974 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Screen version of Bertolt Brecht's play about Galileo, the 17th century Italian who laid the foundations of modern science. Galileo made himself one of the world's first telescopes and discovered the moons of Jupiter. He supported Copernicus' theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun. This brought him into conflict with the Catholic Church. By threatening him with torture, the Church forced him to recant his views in front of a tribunal, and sentenced him to house arrest. However, Galileo's trials and theories inspired others like Newton and Kepler to prove that the Earth was not the center of the Universe
