Budge : the one true happiness of F.R. "Budge" Crawley( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through original and archival footage, film clips, photographs, interviews with friends and foes, and a judicious measure of sheer speculation, Budge The One True Happiness of F.R. "Budge" Crawley probes the singular career of Budge Crawley from his early short films, said to capture "the very quintessence"of Canadian life, to his ultimately unsuccessful attempts to create a private, self-sustaining feature-film industry in Canada. It's the wild ride of a "breakthrough man", whose early films eclipsed the National Film Board on its own documentary turf, who initiated many Canadian film-industry firsts. It's the dispiriting and ultimately crushing succession of near misses and half successes that followed. In the end, it's the tragedy of man who is deaf to the news of his own defeat

Strand sous le drap noir by John Walker( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Portrait très illustré (et c'est tant mieux) de Paul Strand, photographe et cinéaste. L'homme, discret, est pisté derrière le photographe, dont l'oeuvre se caractérise par des cadrages très élaborés. Le film se termine par ces très belles images, où le photographe à 74 ans part pour le Ghana et sort de ses cadrages très sophistiqués. Il se libère du trépied, parcourt le pays appareil à la main. Sa dernière photo est superbe et tendrement symbolique, intitulée, "un oiseau au bord de l'espace."
