Little Salvatore, known to all as Toto, is fascinated by the movies and befriended by projectionist Alfredo. Toto becomes Alfredo's apprentice, which nurtures his love for cinema.

After a fire blinds Alfredo, Toto becomes the projectionist. As Toto grows older, his gaze switches from the flickering images on the screen to pretty classmate, but they are separated when Toto is drafted into the military. Thirty years later Salvatore, now a successful filmmaker in Rome, learns that Alfredo has died. His return to the small Sicilian village of his childhood unleashes a flood of memory, of a love as fleeting as those forbidden, excised kisses
Saraband by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in Swedish and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saraband is a revisitation to 1973's Scenes From a Marriage, as thirty-odd years have passed in the lives of former husband and wife Johan and Marianne. An inner prompting has sent Marianne to visit Johan in his ramshackle but finely appointed house in the middle of the forest, where she becomes a sounding board for the emotional wreckage she encounters there: Henrik (Johan's 61-year-old son) and Henrik's 19-year-old daughter, Karin. Henrik and Karin are musicians, both locked in grief over the death of wife and mother Anna two years earlier. Infused with the unsentimental, gentle humor of distanced perspective and thoughtful reflection, this is another of Bergman's provocative expositions into the most fundamental human need: connection

Takhté siah Blackboards by Samīrā Makhmalbāf( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in Kurdish and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set on the border of Iran and Iraq during the war of the 1980s, 'Blackboards' follows a group of poor teachers, blackboards strapped to their backs, as they attempt to educate the Kurdish children who are some of the primary victims of war. But the young children they approach, largely orphaned and living in extreme poverty and hardship, are too busy working as smugglers to be convinced about the worth of education. Filmed in the rugged mountainous terrain of Kurdistan, 'Blackboards' uses the most economic means of mise-en-scene and editing to create a powerful evocation of the terror of war. The bonds between men and women and the sanctity of childhood are all shown as precarious in a context where chemical bombs and machine guns can destroy a whole community. Samira Makhmalbaf was twenty-one when she won the Grand Prix at Cannes with this film. The cast consists largely of Kurdish refugees who at the time of writing this catalogue entry (2001) still do not have a homeland of their own
