A brief history of time by Errol Morris( Visual )

"Errol Morris turns his camera on one of the most fascinating men in the world: the pioneering astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, afflicted by a debilitating motor neuron disease that has left him without a voice or the use of his limbs. An adroitly crafted tale of personal adversity, professional triumph, and cosmological inquiry, Morris's documentary examines the way the collapse of Hawking's body has been accompanied by the untrammeled broadening of his imagination. Telling the man's incredible story through the voices of his colleagues and loved ones, while making dynamically accessible some of the theories in Hawking's best-selling book of the same name, A Brief History of Time is at once as small as a single life and as big as the ever-expanding universe."--Container

Leviafan = Leviathan by Leviafan (Motion picture)( Visual )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Russian and Undetermined and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der korrupte Bürgermeister einer kleinen russischen Stadt setzt alle Mittel politischer Repression ein, um einem sturköpfigen Mechaniker dessen markant an der Barentsee gelegenes Landstück abzujagen. Dessen Auflehnen gegen die Autorität scheint angesichts der umfassenden Verflechtung der staatlichen Organe und ihrer Sanktionierung durch die orthodoxe Kirche von Beginn an zum Scheitern verurteilt. Das in überwältigenden Bildern fotografierte Drama gibt sich durch erzählerische und visuelle Details als moderne Variation der biblischen Hiobsgeschichte zu erkennen, wobei es das wieder erstarkende Bündnis aus Klerus und Nomenklatura als ein alles verschlingendes Ungeheuer kritisiert."
