Moving pictures( Visual )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The horrors of war; the art of producing pictures; the autobiography of a master filmmaker; and Low's growing awareness of war, the perversion of art into propaganda, and the technological advances that have led to more efficient creation and dissemination of images - as well as more effective weapons of mass destruction. . All come together in Moving pictures, a rich, multi-layered documentary. Over the course of a 50-year career, Colin Low has directed or produced 200 films, which have garnered a remarkable nine Oscar nominations. During the same period, he has collected images of war - etchings and woodcuts - including extremely detailed miniatures. But the images that so fascinated and haunted Low are nearly impossible to accurately capture on film, so Low shot Moving Pictures in 35 mm and developed techniques to show the fine lines of stamps and the microscopic details of tiny copperplate etchings with startling clarity. In Moving Pictures, Low traces his growing awareness of war, the perversion of art into propaganda, and the technological advances that have led to more efficient creation and dissemination of images as well as more effective weapons of mass destruction
