La campaña enredada en un escándalo sexual, desemmascara un mundo que alterna entre la mentira, el amor , la desilución, y una ambigua realidad que forma parte de la vida de todos los norteamericanos.

War photographer by Christian Frei( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Multiple languages and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great photojournalist Robert Capa said, 'If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough.' James Nachtwey has been close enough for over 20 years -- a time period in which he has not missed a single war. War Photographer follows Nachtwey for two years to hot spots including Kosovo, the West Bank, and Indonesia, as he searches for a picture he thinks he can publish. A film about a committed, shy man, who is considered one of the bravest and most inportant war photographers of our time -- but hardly fits the cliché of the hard-boiled war veteran."--Container notes

The Mississippi River Flood of 1927 was the most destructive river flood in American history. In the spring of 1927, the river broke out of its earthen embankments in 145 places and inundated 27,000 square miles. Part of its legacy was the forced exodus of displaced sharecroppers, who left plantation life and migrated to Northern cities, adapting to an industrial society with its own set of challenges. Musically, the Great Migration fueled the evolution of acoustic blues to electric blues bands that thrived in cities like Memphis, Detroit and Chicago becoming the wellspring for R&B and rock as well as developing jazz styles. THE GREAT FLOOD is a collaboration between filmmaker and multimedia artist Bill Morrison and guitarist and composer Bill Frisell inspired by the 1927 catastrophe

Operation filmmaker by Nina Davenport( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Touched by the plight of an aspiring Iraqi filmmaker whose dreams of working in Hollywood seemed to fall with Baghdad, American filmmaker Liev Schreiber invites the ambitious wannabe director to intern on Everything Is Illuminated, to unexpected results. In 2004, just one year after the United States launched a devastating attack on Baghdad, MTV ran a story about a 25-year-old Iraqi film student named Muthana Mohmed, who remained determined not to let the strife that consumed his country consume his dreams as well. At the time, American actor Schreiber was preparing to make his directorial debut with the film Everything Is Illuminated. After seeing the documentary on television, Schreiber was consumed by guilt for having so many amazing opportunities in the film industry and determined to give Mohmed the chance of a lifetime by inviting him to join the production of Everything Is Illuminated in the Czech Republic. Common wisdom dictates that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions," however, and as Mohmed attempted to balance the complications of living away from home for the first time with the cultural issues that arise while working with an all-American film crew, the situation quickly began to deteriorate."
