Kon-Tiki by Thor Heyerdahl( Visual )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 28, 1947, an expedition was led by Norwegian biologist Thor Heyerdahl. The journey by raft spanned 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean and was hailed as one of the most fantastic feats of daring and courage of its time. Heyerdahl and his crew duplicated the legendary voyage of Kon-Tiki, the mythical hero who led the settlement of the South Sea Islands by sailing on a balsa wood raft from Peru to the Polynesian islands
Saraband by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Swedish and held by 562 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
Burma VJ : reporting from a closed country by Anders Østergaard( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anders Østergaard's ... documentary ... is a rare and exceptional look into the 2007 uprising in Burma (Myanmar) where 100,000 people, including thousands of Buddhist monks, peacefully took to the streets to protest the country's repressive regime that has held them hostage for over forty years. During the uprising, the military turned their guns on the peaceful protestors, and blood spilled in the streets. Foreign news reporters were banned and the internet shut down. But Democratic Voice of Burma, a collective of thirty anonymous and underground citizen video journalists (VJs), heroically bore witness to the historic events and secretly videotaped what they saw. Through a dedicated network of supporters, they smuggled the footage out of the country, where it was broadcast via satellite to a world horrified by the violence against a people fighting for democracy. Risking torture and life imprisonment, the VJs vividly documented the brutal clashes with the military and undercover police -- even after they became targets of the authorities. Burma VJ represents their inspiring stories of courage and hope and the undying spirit of a people fighting for freedom"--Container
Edvard Munch by Peter Watkins( Visual )

10 editions published between 1976 and 2007 in English and Norwegian and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edvard Munch portrays the private and personal struggles accompanying the Norwegian painter's artistic innovations amidst the social upheavals of the late nineteenth century. Munch, with his personal fixations on a childhood filled with "illness, insanity, and death," a traumatic affair with a married woman, and quarrels with his family, pursues his artistic experimentation under a constant assault from the ghosts of the past. Bohemian Munch--maligned and embraced by a culture that was quick to kick non-conformists out, in order to gloat over their shenanigans--paid a high price for his genius, in a life painfully disturbed by passion, jealousy, and the relentless repression of a moralistic, bourgeois state
Bron = The bridge = Broen( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in Swedish and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During a blackout, a woman is found murdered in the middle of the Oresund Bridge, on the border between Sweden and Denmark. Police from both countries are called to the scene, and what looks like one murder turns out to be two. It's a spectacular double murder: the bodies have been brutally cut in half at the waist and put together to form a single corpse. Half of the body belongs to a Swedish politician, the other half to a Danish prostitute. Trapped in no-man's land between the two countries, a bi-national investigatory team is put together to solve the murders. Martin, the laid-back family man from Denmark, and Saga, the socially awkward singleton from Sweden, soon realise that they are chasing a dangerous killer with a serious agenda
In languages we live : voices of the world by Janus Billeskov Jansen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 264 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
Bergman Island : Ingmar Bergman on Fårö Island, cinema and life by Marie Nyreröd( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in Swedish and held by 262 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

Stealing history by Ola Flyum( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The looting of ancient artifacts from the troubled regions of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is an ongoing scandal. This film reveals the closely knit network of looters, smugglers, dealers, collectors and academics which encourages this illegal trade. The huge scale of the thefts of precious artworks like "magic" bowls from Mesopotamia and the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls of Buddhism, have led to police investigations in Britain, Norway and Afghanistan. Since the film was shown in Europe, one of the world s largest collectors, was forced to return some of the articles to their countries of origin. Archaeolgist Dr. Erika Hunter had been studying artifacts from Iraq since the late 1980s. In the early 1990s she was offered a huge cache to study. She and Dr. Robert Knox, the Asia Curator at the British Museum, are seen trying to establish the provenance of the items, suspecting they had been stolen from the area near Peshawar. In the Bamiyan Valley, where the famous buddhas were destroyed, we see goatherds digging for antiquities which they can sell for what seems like fortunes to them. As much as academics argue about the provenance of the artifacts, they still want to study and write about them. It is impossible to stop the looting now
The Chinese hospice( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Bejing stands the only hospital in China to specialize in allowing people approaching the end of their lives to die with dignity. It was established ten years ago by Dr. Li Wei, who had been a barefoot doctor in the countryside during the Cultural Revolution. He saw much hardship during those years and vowed to help some of those people who survived. Compared to a Western hospital, this is a simple, basic facility. Care and respect permeates the atmosphere. Each of the elderly patients embodies the history of his or her generation. Entwined with their stories is film footage illustrating the turbulent times through which they lived. By focusing on the stories of a few people nearing the end of life, The Chinese Hospice lends a personal face to history

Nine days of hell : Japan's toughest school( Visual )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan's most ambitious parents pack off their promising kids at holiday time to an academic boot camp that will either make them or break them. Successful completion of this ordeal enables them to stand up to the tremendous pressures of the Japanese school system. Up before dawn, drilled before eating, constantly quizzed, prodded and harassed to learn by rote, these kids are on constant alert except for a few hours sleep at night. Even breakfast is not a respite since it is eaten while pouring over a book. Each student must pass an oral examination, grilled by a stern panel of academicians, who goad and mock them and exhort them to present their ideas more fiercely. While many Japanese approve of this privately run program, there are some who question whether it stifles creativity and independent thought
Our honour and his glory( Visual )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in Multiple languages and English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In some Palestinian villages, honor is deemed of such importance that a father, a brother or a cousin is entitled to kill a woman, often a mere girl, if her morals are suspect. These so-called honor killings are tacitly accepted. Palestinians refuse to admit that women are killed for these reasons, and human rights organizations like Amnesty International remain silent"--Container
