Cave of forgotten dreams by Werner Herzog( Visual )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overcoming considerable technical challenges, iconic director Werner Herzog takes viewers into the interior of Chauvet Cave in southern France where the world's oldest cave paintings--hundreds in number--were discovered in 1994. These 32,000-year-old artworks--pristine and astonishingly realistic drawings of horses, cattle, and lions--come alive in the torchlight, as Herzog muses on this extraordinary place, the nature and purpose of Paleolithic art, and its creators. For Herzog, these paintings present perhaps the earliest manifestation of our primal desire to communicate and represent the world around us, which leads him to wider metaphysical contemplations on evolution and our place within it, and ultimately on what it means to be human

In the loop by Armando Iannucci( Visual )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 1,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Britain's Secretary Of State For International Development Simon Foster states, in the midst of a radio interview, that a war in the Middle East in "unforeseeable," it doesn't follow his government's "line" on events. The problem is that war is not unforeseeable, what with America itching to invade somewhere in the Middle East and the British government loyally following. Unfortunately, Foster suspects nothing about the firestorm to follow. By the next day, Foster is the target of the Prime Minister's director of communications Malcolm Tucker, and the focus of attention for anti-war American diplomat Karen Clarke. After US General George Miller and State Department hawk Linton Barwick jump into the mix, Foster's mountain of an ill-chosen remark turns into a series of festering molehills. In the end, one thing is clear: grave matters involving global power cannot be separated from the pettiness of democratic governance, which is impelled by careerism, vanity, moral compromise and--at least in London--by ear-singeing profanity
