The story of Jean-Dominique Bauby, French editor of Elle magazine, who suffered a stroke at the age of 43, paralyzing his entire body except his left eye.

Jessica is a beautiful young woman from the provinces who has come to Paris and lands a job waiting tables at a chic bistro on fabled Avenue Montaigne. Jessica's customers include a popular TV actress who is courting a major Hollywood director for her first serious film role; a wealthy art collector who is about to liquidate a lifetime's worth of treasures at auction; and an illustrious classical pianist who is at odds with his manager/wife as to where his career is headed.

Broadway goes Hollywood : musical comedy in American cinema( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the release of The Jazz Singer in 1927, this program provides a detailed look inside that most distinctly American of film traditions, the musical comedy. Interviews with dancer Cyd Charisse, famous for her starring roles in MGM musicals, and Hermes Pan, renowned choreographer and collaborator with Fred Astaire, help to illuminate the advent and evolution of the genre. Excerpts and behind-the-scenes accounts from Singin' in the Rain, 42nd Street, Second Chorus, Flying Down to Rio, The Wizard of Oz, and many other films are included. Specific topics include the impact of the Hays Code, the influence of African-American dance styles, and the decline of the musical during the 1960s
Matamata and Pilipili by Tristan Bourlard( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1950s, Albert Van Haelst, a Belgian missionary and film fanatic, made the Matamata and Pilipili series of films in the Congo. The original negatives disappeared at the end of the colonial period, and, until Tristan Bourlard recovered them in a Belgian archive and produced this documentary, the films had never been viewed outside of Africa. Through them, and through the story of their creation, their reception by Congolese audiences, their disappearance, and what happened to Van Haelst and his two Congolese stars, Matamata and Pilipili reclaims an important episode in Congolese cultural history, while exploring the complex terrain of colonial relationships, media representations and popular culture
Entre les murs = The class by Laurent Cantet( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tense environment of a tough inner-city school where cultures and attitudes often clash is revealed in this award-winning drama based on François Bégaudeau's best-selling novel Between the walls. Bégaudeau himself stars as an idealistic teacher of a class of unruly 15 year-olds, whose spiky independence present constant challenges to his sometimes unconventional teaching methods. Featuring an outstanding non-professional cast of real teachers and students, Laurent Cantet's gripping and sharply observed film offers a microcosm of contemporary society and explores the difficult issues facing education today."--Back of container
