L'oeil de Vichy = The eye of Vichy by Claude Chabrol( Visual )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in French and English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À travers des documents cinématographiques de l'époque, et plus particulièrement à partir d'images familières tirées des Actualités, accompagnées de leurs commentaires d'origine, ce film ne montre pas la France telle qu'elle fut gouvernée entre 1940 et 1944, mais telle que Pétain et les collaborateurs ont voulu qu'on la voie. On peut y apercevoir l'avancée des troupes allemandes, l'Exode, Paul Reynaud, le Maréchal Vainqueur de Verdun, l'Armistice, Montoire, ainsi que d'autres moments historiques. Face à ces images qui devaient être l'ultime instrument de domination, Claude Chabrol se comporte à juste titre comme un scientifique: les mensonges se passent de commentaires
Merce Cunningham : a lifetime of dance by Merce Cunningham( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merce Cunningham, a colossus of 20th-century choreography, is perhaps most famous for his sheer fecundity--inventing steps, choreographing 200+ dances, and over 800 "Events" (site-specific works). At the forefront of the American avant-garde for more than 50 years, he abandoned conventional elements of dance structure, most controversially, the relationship of dance and music influenced by his collaboration with composer John Cage. Endlessly inventive and inquisitive, Cunningham collaborated with a wide range of composers, designers, and artists, incorporating video into pieces, and employing computerized choreography in his later years to instruct members of his company. Unlike most choreographers, movement itself was his principal subject matter--neither narrative nor musical form determines the dance structure. Cunningham leaves a vast legacy, but he expressed his view of his art saying, "Dancing is the art of the present tense."

Ballistics and soil and glass analysis are also discussed, as well as the 1985 Guy-Paul Morin rape investigation and the 1992 Arizona case in which the genetic profile of a tree helped to bring about a conviction
Chekhov( Visual )

A superb Russian film documentary of the life and loves, the thoughts and works, the great themes and the little individual lights and shadows that made Chekhov the man and the artist. Set in Moscow in 1914-ten years after Chekhov's death, long enough to provide some perspective on his greatness, close enough for memories to have remained fresh-the program gives us Chekhov through the eyes of those who worked with him and loved him, using superb Russian documentary footage to make both the playwright and his time come to vivid life.

By transforming the character of Don Juan from unscrupulous seducer into a man of overweening pride, cynicism, and disdain, Moliere turned a Spanish theme into a thoroughly French play and offended so many that the play was withdrawn.

Vivaldi by Lina Wertmüller( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program retraces the life and places, the glories and despairs of Antonio Vivaldi, the red(haired) priest whose working relationship with a diva set tongues wagging and whose love for opera led to his downfall. And throughout and above all, of course, his music. Exquisite performances of the range of his work, from the "Estro Armonico" and other string masterpieces, pieces from some operas, "Juditha Triumphans," and examples of the sacred vocal music, are set against contemporary paintings and still-standing monuments and artifacts to show us the brilliant violin virtuoso who was said to be able to play on all four strings at once, to explain the qualities of Stradivarius' violins, and to trace the rise and fall of the inimitable Antonio Vivaldi. Written and directed by Lina Wertmuller
