Edward Hopper and the blank canvas( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary examines American realist painter Edward Hopper's life, including testimonies from people who knew him, and by those inspired by his work, like German filmmaker Wim Wenders. From Mad Men to Blade Runner and The Simpsons, Hopper's scenes of modern American life, most notably Nighthawks, have been recreated in myriad films and TV shows, while his style has influenced the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Terrence Malick. Obsessed with the everyday, Hopper depicted all-night diners, cinemas, gas stations, hotel lobbies, and a theater, filling them with seemingly isolated and alienated figures because he believed loneliness was an inherent feature of city life. This documentary reveals the social and cultural context surrounding Hopper's work, while also exploring his independence as a painter, the many references to his work in film, and the widespread reproduction of his works

This films is the portrait of the National Museums' director in France during the World War II. It depicts how all of the Louvre masterpieces avoided the Nazis' looting thanks to this man.

This great resistant fighter eluded Hitler's greed, fooled Vichy's government saved this cultural heritage and protected lives. Jaujard's fight is finally revealed. The story is narrated by Mathieu Amalric and is filled with testimonies, animated scenes, and original footage.

La toile blanche d'Edward Hopper by Jean-Pierre Devilliers( Visual )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward Hopper (1882-1967), peintre de la solitude et de l'attente, a mêlé réalisme, surréalisme et cubisme dans la géométrie de ses compositions, pour éclairer l'envers du rêve américain. Un univers résolument cinématographique que Wim Wenders, fasciné par son oeuvre, analyse ici avec ferveur."
Claude Sautet, une histoire simple by Jean-Pierre Devillers( Visual )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De "Classe tous risques" (1960) à "Nelly et M. Arnaud" (1995), les films de Claude Sautet ont joué la carte émotionnelle avec des histoires grand public, teintées d'une noirceur particulière. Peu de temps avant la disparition du cinéaste, Michel Boujut a réuni ceux qui composent la famille Sautet. Interviews, archives et extraits de films révèlent la rigueur d'un homme à fleur de peau, qui s'est employé à peindre la fragilité de l'existence. (Mathieu Capel)
