Saraband by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Swedish and held by 573 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

Alvar Aalto : technology and nature by William Charles Miller( Visual )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmed in his native Finland, Italy, Germany, and the U.S., this program looks at the life and work of Alvar Aalto and examines his creative style in the context of his time, the traditions he inherited, and the country and climate in which he lived. For Aalto, the Finnish landscape was much more than the background to which he successfully molded his own creations; he had an almost mystical affinity with it which was central to his whole achievement. Throughout his long career, Aalto's work embraced almost all the key public institutions as well as public and private housing. In the 1930s and 40s, almost single-handedly, Aalto made his country a place of pilgrimage for all who sought enlightenment as to the aesthetic possibility of the new architecture
White king, red rubber, black death( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denounced by the Belgian government, this documentary uses dramatic reenactments and interviews with historians to describe how King Leopold II of Belgium was directly responsible for the death of 10 million native inhabitants of the Congo Free State during the period of 1885 and 1908 and the mutilation of countless others while using the Congo as his private colony. Under his military control, the Congo became a forced labor camp of shocking brutality and torture while exporting rubber for the king's personal coffers. It is believed to be the impetus for the first Human Rights movement based on the cruelty and mass murders during Leopold's reign of terror
Bergman Island : Ingmar Bergman on Fårö Island, cinema and life by Marie Nyreröd( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in Swedish and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmed over several weeks, "Bergman Island" is an impressively intimate look at the waning hours of one of cinema's true legends. Granted unprecedented access to the man himself, Marie Nyreröd captures stories from Bergman that cover his entire life to that point. Bergman is remarkably candid, whether he's discussing his abusive father or his last directorial effort, Saraband. Even those not particularly interested in Bergman's cinema will find something interesting in a man who has lived so long, triumphed in as a director in radio, television and on stage, whilst completely mastered the medium of film, leaving a legacy for the ages

In languages we live : voices of the world by Janus Billeskov Jansen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world is a mosaic of visions, and each vision is encapsulated by a language. Yet every two weeks, one of the world's approximately 6,500 languages dies out. What is the significance of this loss to those who speak the language as well as for the rest of humankind? Why do some languages become global while others disappear? And how are language and identity connected? In this program, linguists David Crystal, Peter Austin, and Jorgen Rischel search for the answers to those and other pressing questions as they investigate the state-and fate-of Livonian, in Latvia; Dogon, in Mali; Mlabri, in Thailand; Changsha Hua and Naqxi, in China; Pitjantjatjara and Pintupi, in Australia; and Tutunaku, in Mexico
Kangaroo mob( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meet the mob of kangaroos moving into Australia's capital city and the ecologists following their every move. After 15 years of drought, Canberra's kangaroos have learned that parks, gardens, and private lawns are a reliable source of juicy grass, but it comes at a price. The life of an urban kangaroo is not easy. It requires learning to negotiate busy roads and avoiding cars and dogs. Over the course of one drought-stricken year, we follow mob leader Black Spot and kangaroo mom Madge as she tries to teach her two young joeys -- mischievous Sonny and tiny pouch-bound Alice -- the skills they will need to make it in the big city. But when the city announces a cull to control the growing numbers of kangaroos, their lives are in serious danger. Public opinion is polarized -- are the kangaroos pests that need to be eradicated, or a protected national icon to be saved at all costs? A local wildlife sanctuary promotes rehabilitation and release as a solution to the problem. And a team of government ecologists hopes to provide some answers with a 12-month study using GPS to track the mob's movements. Here is a look at what happens when human development encroaches on wildlife habitat and two very different species are forced to co-exist
Harlan : in the shadow of Jew Süss( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Veit Harlan was, along with Leni Riefenstahl, Nazi Germany's most successful film director, remembered today for his infamous Jew Suss. Harlan was a master of national kitsch, exulting in melodrama and death, but he was also an extraordinary artist who ended up serving the Nazi propaganda machine. This documentary film, the first account of his life and career, draws on his extensive film catalogue, including previously unreleased materials from the Harlan family's private archive. Though Harlan has largely been forgotten today, the film also shows how his family still struggles with the dark myth of artistic immorality

Victims of cheap coffee by Pertti Pesonen( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in Multiple languages and Spanish and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collapsing prices on the world coffee market have thrown millions of growers around the world into poverty. The price farmers receive for coffee is at its lowest in over thirty years. Coffee plantation owners are bankrupt and the workers are starving. Filmed in Nicaragua and Vietnam, the film describes the human consequences that the collapse of coffee prices has caused in producer countries. Among the poorest countries in Latin America, Nicaragua is more dependent on coffee production than other South American countries Rosa Maria Mendez buried her six-year-old son, who had died of starvation. "We have nothing left but to wait for death," she says as she looks after her five surviving children. Vietnam, one of the few remaining socialist countries, began to take steps toward a market economy in the 1990s. Advised by the IMF and the World Bank to focus on crops for export, they switched from rice to coffee. In ten years Vietnam became the second largest coffee producer, after Brazil, leading to an international oversupply. The price dropped and 700,000 coffee farmers of Vietnam were impoverished. Multinational companies have profited because coffee is so cheap. The crisis is worldwide: the International Coffee Organization says that the price crash has pushed over 25 million people into poverty as farmers who used to grow food now sell coffee
