Victoria Marks : four dances for the camera( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Outside In is a witty and affectionate mix of trails, tracks blue skies, and hidden surprises. The film leaves a lasting impression of continual movement; a seamless stream of images, imprints, and revelations. Mothers and Daughters ... examines the potency and sensuality of the relationship between mother and daughter. Working with 12 pairs of mothers and daughters, many of whom have never performed before, the film looks at the unique and the universal from a micro and macro perspective. Men ... is performed by seven elderly men residing in Alberta, Canada. The theme of the piece is mortality where the ephemerality of human lives is set against the permanence of the Canadian Rockies. This film is a living requiem, a celebration of lives well-lived. Touch ... is a film in which four radically different couples perform the same sequence of touch. Two people tenderly and slowly touch one another, fingers and hands, faces and heads. Their touch, shot in extreme close-up, is like a form of reverence, a prayer."--Container

Cultural anthropology : our diverse world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This video lesson focuses on visual, verbal and musical art forms. Since art is created in response to social, religious, political, economic, and aesthetic stimuli, anthropologists use it as a guide to understanding the values and ideals of culture. Being able to put art within a cultural context enables anthropologists to observe cultural dynamics. That is why tattoos, hip hop and hula provide insight into past and present cultures. You will also be reintroduced to the Pacific Northwest Potlatch ceremony. This once again will highlight the integrated nature of all aspects of culture."--Container
