Composing for the films by Hanns Eisler ( Book )
106 editions published between 1947 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,327 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

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

Kuhle wampe oder, Wem gehört die Welt by Slatan Dudow ( Visual )
18 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This film is a docu-drama focused on working class life in Berlin during the early thirties. Kuhle Wampe was a camp for the unemployed on the outskirts of the city. Anni, stifled by Kuhle Wampe's inhabitants' desire for bourgeois respectability finds new purpose in a left-wing youth movement. Brecht, co-author Ottwalt and friend, young Bulgarian director, Dudow, saw the film as contrasting 'the petty bourgeois world and the politically conscious workers' sports environment ... [to] show how young people grow out of middle-class confines into proletarian solidarity', to quote Dudow. The film's didacticism (characters as representative of their class) is combined with an almost lyrical naturalism. Kuhle Wampe was banned by the Nazis in 1933
