23 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important films of Marcel Ophuls' career has also been the least seen until now. Shot primarily in Sarajevo in 1993, during the siege of the former Yugoslavian city, The Troubles We've Seen is a exploration of the ethical challenges of war reporting, in which Ophuls examines attitudes toward war in the Western media, and in the societies they inform. The 243-minute documentary interlaces stark realities of combat with mordantly hilarious references to Hollywood fantasy-versions of war, and includes over 50 interviews with some of the world's leading journalists, commentators, historians, newscasters and others. Among those appearing in the film are CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Walter Cronkite, The New York Times' John Burns, legendary war correspondent Martha Gellhorn (once married to Ernest Hemingway), French philosopher Bernard Henri Lv̌y, and then-Serbian President, Slobodan Milosevic, currently on trial for war crimes. Following its debut at Cannes, The Troubles We've Seen screened at the New York Film Festival in 1994, where it was hailed by the press as "engaging" and "engrossing". Film Comment included the title high on its list of 150 Top Unreleased Foreign Films of the 1990s. With Iraq, Afghanistan and terrorism on the nightly news, the questions Ophuls poses about the role of media in war have become dinner-table conversation in America. Every scene in this film is as timely and provocative as it was a decade ago

Die TV-Bilder vom Fall der Berliner Mauer inspirierten den deutsch-französischen Filmemacher Marcel Ophüls: Er reiste ein Jahr später nach Berlin, um einige der darin gezeigten Menschen, vom einfachen Mann auf der Straße bis hin zum ehemaligen DDR-Staatsratsvorsitzenden Egon Krenz, zu interviewen. Ihre Antworten kombinierte Ophüls in teils komödiantischer Weise mit Nachrichtenfilmen, Berliner Straßenszenen und Filmausschnitten aus "Der blaue Engel" und "Cabaret"
Marcel Ophuls et Jean-Luc Godard : la rencontre de Saint Gervais by Frédéric Choffat( Visual )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in French and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009, in a small theater in Geneva, Switzerland, the film directors Marcel Ophuls and Jean-Luc Godard met for an unusual, surprisingly intimate and sometimes contentious dialogue with each other in front of a live audience. Luckily for us, it was filmed. Ophuls' film "The sorrow and the pity" triggers Godard to discuss his personal and fragmented childhood memories about his escape to Switzerland during World War, while Ophuls recalls the controversy surrounding the release of his film in France. The issue of the written word being taken more seriously than the moving image is brought up by Godard. Throughout their meeting, the two directors debate about national and ethnic identities, what it means to be Jewish, the role of the director, and auteur theory, which ultimately reveals why they never collaborated on a tentative film that was once discussed. This film gives us the unique opportunity to spend time with an encounter between two of the most influential and idiosyncratic post-war film directors. Godard and Ophuls are in the twilight of their years, but they remain provocative, sharp, and as uncompromising as ever
