1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spanning fifty-three movies and forty-one editions of the Olympic Games, this set is the culmination of a monumental, award-winning archival project encompassing dozens of new restorations by the International Olympic Committee. The documentaries collected here cast a cinematic eye on some of the most iconic moments in the history of modern sports, spotlighting athletes who embody the Olympic motto of "Faster, Higher, Stronger": Jesse Owens shattering world records on the track in 1936 Berlin, Jean-Claude Killy dominating the Grenoble slopes in 1968, Joan Benoit breaking away to win the Games' first women's marathon in Los Angeles in 1984. In addition to the impressive ten-feature contribution of Bud Greenspan, this stirring collective chronicle of triumph and defeat includes such documentary landmarks as Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia and Kon Ichikawa's Tokyo Olympiad, along with captivating lesser-known works by major directors like Claude Lelouch, Carlos Saura, and Miloš Forman. It also offers a fascinating glimpse of the development of film itself, and of the technological progress that has brought viewers ever closer to the action. Traversing continents and decades, reflecting the social, cultural, and political changes that have shaped our recent history, this movie marathon showcases a hundred years of human endeavor

"Cuenta la vida del compositor mexicano Álvaro Carrillo. Este gran compositor se graduó como Ingeniro Agrónomo, pero al paso del tiempo descubrió que su verdadera vocación es la música. Esta dramática historia muestra cómo el compositor vivió una 'dobla' vida, por un lado, como jefe de familia: su trabajo y su familia; por otro, la música y el ambiente turnio y bohemio de la casa de La Banda, que como ya se sabe, fue el burdel más famoso de la época"--Container
100 years of Olympic films( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Games of the XIX Olympiad in Mexico City began with controversy over the location because of the altitude there, and also because of the political and social turmoil engulfing Mexico. Filmmaker Alberto Isaac was a former Olympic swimmer and he cast a sympathetic eye on performers who could not aspire to a medal. His record of the Mexico City Olympic Games was a celebration of individual heroism and the cultural activities staged during the two weeks of the Summer Games. There were two iconic images from the Games that were seen around the world. The first showed Americans Tommie Smith and John Carlos, on the winners' podium for the 200 meters, their heads bowed, raising clenched, black-gloved fists, and the other was of American Bob Beamon reaching toward the camera, high over the long jump pit, in the middle of an extraordinary world-record leap that was not surpassed for 23 years, and is still the Olympic record. Like the 1960 film The Grand Olympics, Isaac's film The Olympics in Mexico was nominated for an Academy Award in the best feature documentary category
