Beowulf and the Anglo-Saxons : an exploration into the Anglo-saxon myth of men and monsters( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program traces the origins of the tribes that brought this epic into being, the war-like Norsemen from Sweden, Denmark and Germany who were to conquer and settle regions of a more clement and fertile island that would become known as England, named after the tribe of the Angles. Using 3-D animation, location footage, archive materials and interviews, the Beowulf epic is examined in the light of the civilization that created it. It investigates their religious beliefs as well as their everyday life, and suggests that, old as the poem is, it may have roots in an even more ancient fertility cult. -- cover

This film presents a brief biography of Jane Austen (16 December 1775-18 July 1817), and explores the landscapes where she spent her life. Austen lived her entire life as part of a small and close-knit family located on the lower fringes of English gentry, and her works analyze the novels of sensibility of the second half of the eighteenth century. Austen's biting social commentary was aimed at moral issues, principally the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security. Her whose works of romantic fiction set among the gentry have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature, while her historical importance hinges on her contribution to the transition to nineteenth-century realism

Joyce's famous boast that, if Dublin one day suddenly disappeared from the earth, it could be reconstructed out of his book has been quoted so often that it has taken on the force of a truism. With the passing of a century, we can separate Joyce's Dublin from the present entity and view it in perspective more easily than previous Joyceans, especially as the Dublin that Joyce knew has largely and gradually disappeared. This film takes viewers on a tour through the remnants of Joyce's youth that still exist in modern-day Dublin

The inhuman brutality and bloodshed that was endemic at Dachau, Nazi Germany's first concentration camp, did not come to an end with its 1945 liberation, for this dreaded place proved capable of triggering a spate of vengeful retaliation and killings, not only by its half-crazed prisoners, but their rescuers.

Tailing him is Ujiie (Renji Ishibashi), a snarling yakuza hell-bent on getting Wada's company to repay its debts. Led by their unflappable guide, Shun (Mako), the two go through rural villages and striking landscapes, quickly leaving behind all signs of the 20th century. As the trail grows narrower and more remote and as they brave gales, bugs, and floods, the long simmering tension between Wada and Ujiie bursts into full-scale contempt. One night, after Shun gets blind drunk, he hits his head and loses his memory. Now completely lost, the trio stumbles upon a hill tribe, whose children are adorned with wings made from bamboo and paper. Their teacher, a blue-eyed woman named Yan (Li Li Wang), tells them that she is teaching them to fly. Wada quickly becomes obsessed with this curious local. After she tells him that she has a book on human-powered flight and that her grandfather was a downed British airman, he almost believes that she can teach her students to soar. Soon Wada feels purged from the evils of city life while Ujiie decides to dedicate his life to protecting the village
