The Jacques Cousteau odyssey by Jacques Yves Cousteau( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blind prophets of Easter Island: Since the Polynesian island's discovery in 1722, the lost, ancient civilization of Easter Island has left a baffling legacy of riddles. Jacques Cousteau and the Calypso crew undertake land and underwater explorations and interview leading experts. Among the questions they tackle: who created the ancient, once-revered giant stone figures? Why do volcanic rock drawings show trees and flowers when virtually none exist today? Why is there evidence of cannibalism in a once peaceful and flourishing society? Clipperton, the island time forgot: Today, the only inhabitants of this environmentally inhospitable Pacific island are birds and crabs. Yet over 80 years ago, Clipperton hosted other visitors: a demented rapist and a terrified group of women and children. Cousteau returns to the island to recreate the deadly series of events: from the death of the brave French captain, to the courage of the widow who killed her torturer, and through the eyes of one of the survivors, then a child

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 15 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

100 years of Olympic films( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

France's first Olympic Winter Games since 1924 were held in Grenoble in 1968, and they inspired two films. 13 Days in France married footage shot by numerous cinematographers and set it to the music of Francis Lai, creating an impressionistic kaleidoscope of a movie. Dialogue is sparse, and during some of the sequences there is neither commentary or dialogue, only music. Snows of Grenoble is much wider-ranging in its coverage, though it strives to capture the kinetic energy of the Games rather than attempting a detailed analysis, making viewers feel as though they are sharing the danger and excitement of the competitors. The film renders the wretched weather conditions of the Games in imagery that's almost palpable. 13 Days in France was scheduled to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival of 1968, but when the festival shuddered to a halt in support of the May '68 riots in France, the screening was canceled. So Lelouch took the film to the Berlin Film Festival, which at that time occurred in June. Snows of Grenoble had to wait until December of that year for a release in France
