Dark side of the moon by William Karel( Visual )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and French and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The progress of film and television technology has made it possible to manipulate images without it being obvious. Even the use of archival pictures is no guarantee for authenticity since they can be used to substantiate different "facts." During an interview with Stanley Kubrick's widow the story came to light that Kubrick contributed to the popular success of the US space program with his film 2001: A Space Odyssey. He had the support of NASA which realized the film would popularize its costly space program. The director of this "documentary" took this revelation one step further by inventing an astonishing scenario for the images of the moon landing, and validating it with "hijacked" archival footage and authentic interviews out of context. This film should have your class humbled in the realization of how difficult it is to separate truth from manipulation in the media. The film will be useful in media studies classes

Hollywood( Visual )

3 editions published in 2000 in Undetermined and English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A funny, bittersweet plunge into the heart of Hollywood, once the mecca of movie-making, the promised land for all Cecil B. de Milles to come. The tourist guide had warned William Karel: the most dangerous city in the States is dying a slow death. Hollywood has become a gigantic open-air museum. Dreams have disappeared, but miracles still happen. The film is a long tracking shot in the city of vice and virtue: male prostitution, Bogart's films minus the fag, the Marlboro cowboy who hasn't taken a drag since 1995 because in Hollywood, just lighting up makes you depraved, the frenzy of shopping, the obsession with health and being thin, people obsessed by sexual harassment, vitamin addicts, no sugar-no salt-no cholesterol-no butter-no fat-no hormone-no alcohol restaurants ... and the bottles of "Hollywood Drops"--Three drops on a fresh fruit salad gives it a tin can taste - a product designed for kids who eat fruit salad from cans and who can't stand natural foods

"Après une première tentative où il s'est fait congédier au bout de vingt-quatre heures, le réalisateur a obtenu, un an plus tard, une nouvelle autorisation de filmer la conférence de rédaction du journal télévisé de France 2, alors que l'équipe avait changé. Dans le "bocal"--La salle de conférence -, avec Claude Sérillon, les choses se passent de manière détendue, et les plaisanteries et les bons mots du journaliste ne sont pas toujours en phase avec la gravité des sujets traités. Devant la caméra, le présentateur adopte une attitude autrement plus sérieuse. La caméra s'est faite indiscrète pour comprendre les secrets de fabrication de la "grand-messe" télévisuelle du vingt heures, qui constitue, pour quinze à vingt millions de citoyens, la seule source de renseignements sur l'actualité du monde. L'arrière-cuisine de la "grand-messe" du journal télévisé de France 2, entre conférences de rédaction et images en provenance du monde entier
