Inventing peace : a dialogue on perception by Wim Wenders( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inventing Peace' revolves around the question of how we look at the world, but do not see it when there is so much war, injustice, suffering and violence. What are the ethical and moral consequences of looking, but not seeing, and, most of all, what has become of the notion of peace in all this? In the form of a written dialogue, Wim Wenders and Mary Zournazi consider this question as one of the fundamental issues of our times as well as the need to reinvent a visual and moral language for peace. Inspired by various cinematic, philosophical, literary and artistic examples, Wenders and Zournazi reflect on the need for a change of perception in the everyday as well as in the creation of images. In its unique style and method, 'Inventing Peace' demonstrates an approach to peace through sacred, ethical and spiritual means, to provide an alternative to the inhumanity of war and violence
The films of Claire Denis : intimacy on the border( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The films of Claire Denis, one of the most challenging and respected of contemporary filmmakers, probe the psyche of global citizenship, tracing the borderlines of family, desire, nationality and power. With subtlety, depth and at times minimalism and abstraction, her films - including "Chocolat", "Beau travail" and "White Material"--Explore connections between national experience and individual circumstance, visualizing the complications of such dualities. Following a Foreword by Wim Wenders, with whom Denis worked prior to making her own movies, international contributors explore the themes she addresses in her films, such as kinship and landscape, Neo-Colonialism and New French Extremity. Original interviews with an editor, actor and two composers most familiar with the working style of Denis, and with Denis herself, also reveal fresh facets of this intrepid filmmaker."--publisher's website

"Every photo, every 'ONCE' in time is also the beginning of a story starting 'once upon a time.' Every photo is the first frame of a movie." - Wim Wenders. Wim Wenders ranks among the great artistic minds of contemporary film. Over the past 30 years his films, such as Paris, Texas, and Faraway, So Close have displayed such wisdom, creativity, and sensitivity that they have transcended boundaries of nationality and language. Wenders brings the same deft touch for storytelling and the same cinematic feel to this collection of photographic essays. Once consists of short, autobiographical sketches by Wenders paired with the photographs he has taken on his trips around the world. At once a travel diary, photo album, and series of short stories and films, Once gives us a unique look at the universe Wenders has created out of the hidden pieces of everyday life
