In this contemporary adaptation, social and moral restraints lead a married newspaper seller and the prostitute with whom he is having an affair to kill themselves in a love-in-death pact. The director begins with a live rehearsal which dissolves into a stylized performance with human actors playing the parts originally written for puppets.

Shinoda's cameras ands crew are also visible

Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi( Visual )

4 editions published in 2015 in Japanese and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded period pieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds. The head monk paints Hoichi's body with prayer verses to protect him, but unfortunately overlooks Hoichi's ears. In In a cup of tea, a writer wonders what would happen to a person who drinks another's soul and finds out

Toru Takemitsu by Charlotte Zwerin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Japanese and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tōru Takemitsu (1930-1996), well-known Japanese composer, wrote the scores for some of the most celebrated, seminal works of Japan's New Wave movement, and collaborated with Akira Kurosawa, Nagisa Oshima, Masahiro Shinoda, and Hiroshi Teshigahara--some very obsessive directors. Takemitsu emphasized the sound, images, and textures of natural living things, as he scored power struggles, paranoia, fractured family relations, and the two big subjects that often dominate the films his work accompanies: murder and suicide. Takemitsu's scores feature Japanese instruments and musical concepts, but he also used musician's performance techniques, engineering tweaks, and sometimes specific sound effects, which were performed, recorded, and edited into sharp musical statements for Japanese films that addressed issues heretofore rarely depicted in Japanese cinema. Interviews with Takemitsu, Teshigahara, Shinoda, Kobayashi and Oshima are illustrated with copious clips from their films

100 years of Olympic films : 1912-2012( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 18 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
