The five obstructions by Lars von Trier( Visual )

64 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lars von Trier now enters the world of documentary filmmaking alongside his idol, Danish filmmaker Jørgen Leth. In 1967, Leth made a 12 minute feature film called The perfect human. In the year 2000, von Trier challenged Jørgen Leth to remake his film five times, each time with a new obstruction to force Leth to rethink the story and characters of the original film. Lars von Trier sets a game in motion that is full of traps and vicious turns hoping each time Leth will fail but it turns out to have a surprising outcome
Dreamers by Jørgen Leth( Visual )

5 editions published in 2003 in Multiple languages and English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French writer Andre Malraux went to Haiti in 1975 and discovered the riotous color and beguiling fantasy of the paintings of unschooled Haitian artists. Over the years this art has gained recognition throughout Europe and North America. In a country rife with poverty, violence and political unrest, this film introduces us to the colorful, fanciful and joyous work of elderly Haitian painters. Some are "voodoo" painters, some paint historical subjects, others paint imaginary visions, some capture everyday life and fanciful creatures from the animal kingdom. The director, Jorgen Leth, an outstanding figure in Danish cinema, captures with great integrity the spirituality and unworldliness of these aged artists who have for decades painted from their inner vision, and have gained recognition as masters of the naif. Among the artists represented are Andre Pierre, Philome Obin, Prospere Pierre Louis, Louisiane Saint-Fleurant and Salnave Philippe-Auguste

Henrik Vibskov's remarkable creative vission encompasses fashion design, stage design, film, photography, and music. This book is the first comprehensive presentation of his multifaceted work. Rich with images that are accompanied by enlightening project descriptions by Vibskov himself, it offers compelling insight into how today's most cutting-edge designers are establishing a personal style that is recognizable across various disciplines. Henrik Vibskov not only designs acclaimed avant-garde fashion, but also invents a multitude of twisted yet tantalizing universes relating to each of his collections. In addition, Vibskov keeps himself occupied touring as the drummer of various musical projects, and he exhibits at art museums and galleries around the world

Sunday in Hell : behind the lens of the greatest cycling film of all time by William Fotheringham( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Sunday in Hell' is an iconic documentary about the 1976 Paris-Roubaix Classic, made by the Danish director Jørgen Leth. Leth's mission was to capture the spirit of this magnificent one-day spectacle through the cobbled roads of northern France and legends of the sport such as Eddy Merckx and Roger de Vlaeminck. He did so using revolutionary camera and sound techniques which improved the experience of watching cycling on screen forever. This book looks at the men and the places behind the film: Leth and his work, the cyclists such as Merckx, De Vlaeminck and the ill-fated winner Marc Demeyer and revisits locations which have changed little to this day

"Highly acclaimed Danish filmaker Jorgen Leth brings you the drama of the Paris-Roubaix race. 'A Sunday in hell' is not only a testimony of the battle between Merckx, De Vlaeminck, Maertens and Moser over the pavé but it is alsoa powerful documentary film. A classic psychological and dramatic account of what it means to race ina Spring Classic."--CONTAINER

Cinco condiciones by Lars von Trier( Visual )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in Spanish and Danish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1967, Jorgen Leth realizó un cortometraje de trece minutos titulado "El ser humano perfecto", en el que analizaba el comportamiento de las personas. Fascinado por el resultado, Lars von Trier le invitó en el año 2000 a llevar a cabo juntos cinco variaciones sobre aquel asunto, planteándole otras tantas obstrucciones o condiciones que limitaban las posibilidades de rehacer la historia y definir a los personajes. Con ese procedimiento, los dos directores acaban poniendo en tela de juicio las convenciones del género documental y las características fundamentales de la creación cinematográfica
