"Based on the explosive novel by Vassilis Vassilikos, COSTA-GAVRAS' Academy award winning masterpiece presents a controversial yet fictionalized account of the events surrounding the assassination of democratic Greek politician Gregoris Lambrakis in 1963. When a liberal politician is murdered during a peace demonstration, certain high-powered right wing figures make a concerted effort to not only conceal their involvement but ultimately cover up the murder in a cunning conspiracy. Jean-Louis Trintignant stars as the investigating magistrate who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, indict the assassins and ultimately deliver justice and restore hope to the people. Also featuring Yves Montand and Irene Papas, Z is a landmark film, notorious for its dark satirical view of Greek politics, and capturing the sensitivity and outrage that rocked the status quo. Never before has a film created such a political stir"--Container

A trip to the moon : in its original 1902 colors/the extraordinary voyage( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A trip to the moon (1902): The material for A trip to the moon is sourced from a restored color version that had been considered lost for several decades and is presented with an original soundtrack by the French band, AIR. In 2010, three experts in worldwide film restoration - a private collection Lobster Films, and two non-profit entities, Groupama Gan Foundation for Cinema and Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage - launched the most complex and ambitious restoration in the history of cinema, over 12 years, using advanced digital technologies to reassemble and restore the fragments of the 13,375 frames. The restoration print premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 and made a worldwide tour of international festivals including Telluride, Pordenone, Rotterdam, and the MoMA Festival of Film Preservation. Now, one of the most technically sophisticated and expensive restorations in film history, A trip to the moon can thrill audiences in its original 1902 colors. The Extraordinary Voyage (2011): The Extraordinary Voyage chronicles the journey of A trip to the moon from the fantastical Méliès' production in 1902 to the astonishing rediscovery of a nitrate print in color in 1993, to the premiere of the new restoration on the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival in 2011. The story of Moon's restoration to its original 1902 colors unfolds as Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange acquire a severely damaged color print from the Filmoteca de Catalunya in 1999 and then begin the tedious task of peeling off and unrolling the nitrate prints to be able to digitize them. It took two years to discover the images on those fragments, which were then stored on a hard drive for 8 years as the technology available at the time did not allow Lobster Films to continue the landmark restoration. The documentary includes interviews with contemporary filmmakers, including Costa Gavras, Michel Gondry, Michel Hazanavicius, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet on Méliès' enduring significance to cinema
