Workingman's death by Michael Glawogger( Visual )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glawdogger deconstructs contemporary conceptions of work - by showcasing six of the most grueling and dangerous professions he could find. At once a rejoinder to those predicting the death of manual labour and a ground-level lesson on globalization, the film makes the efforts of these impoverished men something heroic. They represent a forgotten kind of courage. All of this work is captured in Glawogger's characteristic stunning compositions, with an eye for the harsh grandeur of elemental and industrial environments
Antares by Götz Spielmann( Visual )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in German and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antares tells three stories of passion, jealousy, routine, and violence, in which love is the cause of and driving force behind each character's emotional and physical experiences. Alex and Nicole are divorced, but Alex cannot let go of what has passed. Sonja is facing tough times because of her pregnancy and becoming wildly jealous of her husband Marco. Eva, a loyal wife and mother, has her life turned upside-down by a fling with Tomasz."--Original container
Whores' glory by Michael Glawogger( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and Multiple languages and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third film in Michael Glawogger's globalization trilogy (following Megacities and Workingman's death), is an explicit and unflinching exposé of global prostitution. In Bangkok, Thailand, women punch a clock and wait for clients in a brightly lit glass box; in the red-light district of Faridpur, Bangladesh, a madam haggles over the price of a teenage girl; and in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico, crack-addicted women pray to a deity named Lady Death. Winner of the Orizzonti Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, Glawogger's latest larger-than-life documentary is an audacious, non-judgmental study of sexuality, politics, human behavior and the effects of capital and religion on both women and men from starkly different cultures."--Container

Megacities : 12 Geschichten vom Überleben by Michael Glawogger( Visual )

3 editions published in 1998 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Earth is beautiful. It’s people who make it horrific. Bombay, Mexico City, Moscow, New York: seductive yet repellent monsters. The contradiction insinuates itself into the daily lives of those who populate these megacities. The film’s twelve chapters tell the tales of: Shankar, the Bioscope Man; Modesto, the chicken feet vendor; Baba Khan, the paint recycler; Nestor, the trash scavenger; Oleg, Borya, Kolya and Misha, the street kids; Cassandra, the performer; Larissa, the crane driver; Toni, the hustler. Day in, day out they all set about their struggle for survival with ingenuity, intelligence and dignity. And they all share a single fantasy: the dream of a better life. MEGACITIES is a film about work, poverty, violence, love and sex. A film about the beauty of people."--Film distributor's website

Über Wasser : Menschen und gelbe Kanister( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary film about water and its significance to human existence in three different parts of the world. A seemingly mundane 'given' becomes a gripping and forthright tale of daily struggle and survival. Floods and inundation in the Bangladeshi Brahmaputra delta; in Kazakhstan, near the shrinking Aral Sea, a ship cemetery right in the middle of the steppe; and the daily each-man-for-himself battle for a few yellow cans of clean water in Kibera, Nairobi's biggest slum.
