Degas and the dance by Mischa Scorer( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entrant in the Dance Films Association's 32nd annual Dance on Camera Festival 2004. Documentary on French artist Edgar Degas (1834-1917) and his focus on dance as a theme for art, created in conjunction with the exhibition Degas and the dance at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The program explores not only his use of dance as a vehicle for his artistic experiments in composition, subject matter, and materials, but recognizes his close involvement with and knowledge of the ballet of his time, the dancers' offstage lives and milieu, and ballet technique. In addition to the many reproductions of his works that illustrate the program, dramatic re-creations bring to life aspects of his creative process, including his experiments in painting, printmaking, photography, and sculpture. Performance excerpts from La sylphide (re-created from Filippo Taglioni's original by Pierre Lacotte) and La bayadère (restaged by Rudolf Nureyev after Marius Petipa) suggest the stage pictures he saw. The modern-day counterparts of his dancers are seen in footage of ballet classes in the Paris Opéra's famous circular studio, and Martine Kahane guides the viewer on a tour behind the scenes at the Palais Garnier, the Opéra's present home
14 Up : South Africa( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spotlighting the age of 14, this program continues the South African version of the famed British documentary series Up, in which participants are featured every seven years speaking about the society around them. From Capetown to Durban to Soweto, viewers reenter the lives of each youthful subject to learn about his or her goals, dreams, fears, and frustrations. Dramatic political changes have taken place in South Africa since the last episode was filmed, and it is clear that many of these young people are undergoing a transformation as well. Some are rethinking what they believe is possible or impossible in the future. Others are coming to terms with the darkness of the nation's past and their own previous attitudes, as when Willem looks back on his racist comments of seven years ago and recognizes their stupidity. For exploring South Africa's recent history, there is no more powerful visual aid than this street-level study."--Films for the Humanities & Sciences website
The Stuart Hall Project( Visual )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A founding figure of contemporary cultural studies--and one of the most inspiring voices of the post-war Left--Stuart Hall's resounding and ongoing influence on British intellectual life commenced soon after he emigrated from Jamaica in 1951. Combining extensive archival imagery--television excerpts, home movies, family photos--with specially filmed material and a personally mixed Miles Davis soundtrack, Akomfrah's filmmaking approach matches the agility of Hall's intellect, its intimate play with memory, identity and scholarly impulse traversing the changing historical landscape of the second half of the 20th century."--BFI website
