Protektor( Visual )

This fateful love story is set in Prague during the late 1930s and subsequent Nazi occupation. It focuses on radio journalist Emil, who is deeply in love with his glamorous Jewish movie star wife Hana. When the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia is established, Hana's career is cut short and Emil's radio station put under German control. Emil chooses to collaborate with the occupiers in order to survive and protect his wife. Ironically, this choice threatens to destroy the very thing he's trying to protect: Hana. As the restrictions on Jews are systematically increased, Hana becomes increasingly depressed. Emil forbids her to go out, even to the movies. Meanwhile, as a man-about-town, Emil starts enjoying his celebrity and the company of other women. But restless Hana meets a subversive movie projectionist, and with him flouts laws banning her from cinemas, cafes, and other public places. Ultimately, the assassination of Reichsprotektor Reinhard Heydrich provides a twist that once again strengthens Emil and Hana's bond

Cooking history Kuhati zgodovino : na bojišče ne moreš lačen : dokumetarni film o vojaških kuharjih by Peter Kerekes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in Multiple languages and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What keeps the armies of the world going? Tanks, submarines, airplanes, bullets, bombs? Actually, bread. Bread and blinis and sausage and coq au vin. As one cook puts it, without food, the army would be in a shambles. Taking a tour of 20th century battlefields, Peter Kerekes revisits its mess halls and field kitchens, asking the cooks to recreate the meals they served at the front. One Russian woman prepares blinis she once made for the soldiers fighting off the Germans outside Leningrad. Another hunts mushrooms in a Czechoslovakian forest. Hungarians slaughter a pig for kolbasz. A German sings a fight song while baking black bread for the soldiers who just took Poland. A French conscientious objector chases a cockerel for his dinner. Reliving the battles while they prepare the food, the cooks are proud of their roles in serving their countries yet remain haunted by the suffering. Using humor, poignancy, and reserve, Kerekes elevates the much-maligned documentary technique of reenactment while subtly making his point that if the armies of the world were indeed in a shambles, there might not be any wars
