"Todo comienza una hermosa mañana de finales de noviembre del año 1327 cuando Fray Guillermo de Baskerville (Sean Connery), un monje franciscano y antiguo inquisidor, y su inseparable discípulo el novicio Adso de Melk (Christian Slater), que es quien relata la historia, acuden a una abadía benedictina situada en el norte de la península italiana para intentar esclarecer la muerte del joven miniaturista Adelmo da Otranto. Durante su estancia en la abadía van desapareciendo misteriosamente más monjes, a quienes encuentran muertos al poco tiempo. Lentamente, y gracias a la información aportada por algunos monjes, Guillermo va esclareciendo los hechos. El móvil de los crímenes parecen ser unos antiguos tratados sobre la licitud de la risa que se encuentran en la biblioteca del complejo, de la cual se dice que es la mayor del mundo cristiano. ¿Quién es el asesino? ¿Qué hicieron sus víctimas para morir asesinadas? Nadie lo sabe." --AVH web site

The act of killing by Joshua Oppenheimer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in Indonesian and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this chilling and inventive documentary, executive produced by Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) and Errol Morris (The Fog of War), the unrepentant former members of Indonesian death squads are challenged to re-enact some of their many murders in the style of the American movies they love. In the 1960s Anwar Congo was a leader in Indonesia's pro-regime paramilitary group, Pancasila Youth who, along with his band of dedicated followers, was amongst those who participated in the murder and torture more than a million alleged Communists, ethnic Chinese and intellectuals. Proud of their deeds, which have still gone unpunished, Anwar and his pals are lauded as national heroes, and are delighted when the filmmakers ask them to re-enact these murders for their documentary - in any genre they desire. Initially Anwar and his friends enthusiastically take up the challenge using hired actors, making elaborate sets and costumes, but eventually as the movie violence is played out and reconstructed, Anwar's conscience begins to stir and feelings of remorse surface. Year of Production: 2012
Metropolis by Fritz Lang( Visual )

4 editions published between 1927 and 2011 in English and German and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The future. Metropolis is a wonderful city, high above the ground its towers stand. The people prosper, the economy is flourishing, the suspended streets are busy. But Metropolis also has a great secret, so hidden that not even Freder Fredersen, son of founder Joh Fredersen knows about it. He is spending his free time in the Eternal Gardens, when suddenly a woman shows up, with what looks like a class of children. They're from the City of Workers, in the depth, Freder learns. "These are your brothers," she tells the children, before she is forced to leave. Freder is so intrigued he follows them into the depth and doesn't like what he sees. The workers are exploited, they must do labor like robots. Freder tries to convince his father to change, while the woman tries to keep workers' morale high by predicting a man will stand up that will mediate. Someone that will use both hands and head, someone that will be the heart. Soon after its premiere, Metropolis was severely shortened and altered. Since then, more than a quarter of the film was assumed to have been lost. In 2008, an almost complete version of the film was discovered in Buenos Aires. The material was heavily damaged and, because it had been printed on 16mm film stock, does not have the full-aperture silent picture ratio. Utilizing the footage from Argentina, a virtually complete Metropolis has been reconstructed and its proper editing has been restored. The text of the intertitles was taken from German censorship records and has been translated into English. In order to maintain the scale of the restored footage, the missing portion of the frame appears black. Black frames indicate points at which footage is still lost. Intertitles in a different typeface have been added to summarize the contents of the missing scenes

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
