The Street( Visual )

6 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This award winning animation film spares no feelings and minces no words. A poignant interpretation of a short story by Montréal author Mordecai Richler, it makes frank statements about how families respond to the needs of their old and infirm members. In soft washes of watercolor and ink, Caroline Leaf interprets family reactions to a dying grandmother. Animator Caroline Leaf is known for her innovative approaches to her work. One contribution to animation filmmaking is her technique of manipulating sand on a light box, a process which she began experimenting with during the creation of Sand, Or Peter And The Wolf, while she was a student at Harvard. The technique involves creating animated movement with images of fine beach sand spread onto a piece of underlit glass, while the sand is manipulated directly under the camera
The Invention of the adolescent( Visual )

From the past, when distinctions between childhood and adulthood were not as finely drawn as they are today, this film traces the development of the adolescent and shows some of the real problems of this age. It notes that it was the defense of the young, the protection afforded by reformers and educators, that created the generation gap so evident today in Western society. What adolescents gained and lost from changing attitudes towards them is clearly illustrated in the film

Fluxes( Visual )

2 editions published between 1967 and 2000 in French and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fluxes est l'une des multiples reconstitutions possibles d'un monde fragmenté par la technologie. Comme à la télévision, les images sont froides, toutes égales en importance, choix ironique des circonstances. Une sorte de magma sonore contemporain s'y superpose, créant avec elles des rapports baroques, dérisoires et signifiants. << Notre seule moralité est de survivre >> émet une voix d'une autre planète. Il semble que ce soit aussi le cas sur cette terre de robots, de machines surproductrices et d'ordinateurs, où l'homme est devenu le cobaye de ses propres expériences
