The pervert's guide to cinema by Sophie Fiennes( Visual )

49 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A film about cinema itself, with close readings of some of the most intriguing and celebrated films in cinema history. Serving as guide is the charismatic Slovenian philosopher and psychoanalyst Slavoj Žižek, who delves into the hidden language of cinema, uncovering what movies can tell us about ourselves. Structured in three parts, the Pervert's Guide To Cinema offers an introduction to Žižek's ideas on fantasy, reality, sexuality, subjectivity, form and desire. In a striking visual leap, director Sophie Fiennes immerses Žižek into the scenes he discusses. Whether he is unraveling the films of David Lynch, or overturning everything you thought you knew about Hitchcock, Žižek illuminates the screen with his passion, intellect and unfailing sense of humour"--Container

Over your cities grass will grow by Sophie Fiennes( Visual )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1993, artist Anselm Kiefer left Buchen, Germany for La Ribaute, a derelict silk factory near Barjac, a town in the south of France. Like a strange, sprawling village, La Ribaute extends over 35 hectares and is composed of old industrial buildings and working studios. From 2000, Kiefer began constructing a series of elaborate installations and paintings, creating pavilions to house them, while also digging a network of tunnels underneath the pavilions. OVER YOUR CITIES GRASS WILL GROW takes you into Kiefer's artistic estate to discover these sights and more-including an underground pool at the cul-de-sac of a tubular iron tunnel embedded within a crypt, a 20-meter tiered concrete amphitheater, and an open landscape of concrete towers assembled like so many card houses. Traversing this landscape, director Sophie Fiennes' critically acclaimed film immerses the audience in the total world and creative process of one of today's most significant and inventive artists

Hoover street revival is an insightful look into an America most people only read about. Focusing on the experiences and hardships which make up everyday reality for many residents of South Central Los Angeles, Director Sophie Fiennes examines the impact of the charismatic Bishop Noel Jones' (brother of diva Grace Jones) and Grammy-nominated Jonathan Grier's choir upon those who walk through the doors of Greater Bethany Community Church. An engaging and perceptive tribute to the people who are touched by the words of one man and his message, Hoover street revival is an uplifting experience that explores notions of faith and belief in a world that sometimes offers little else

For his first exhibition in the UK, the Lisson Gallery invited Liu Xiaodong - one of China's foremost artists and a painter of international stature - to produce a new body of work in London. Over a period of six weeks, Liu Xiaodong documented his encounters with Londoners, much as he has done previously, while living and painting among residents of Tibet, Japan, Italy, Cuba and Israel. Focusing on three local businesses, two pubs and one Middle Eastern coffee shop, Liu produced one near-lifesize oil on canvas and eight acrylic photo-paintings (mixing photography and painting) at each location. Liu's London residency was documented by filmmaker Sophie Fiennes, whose complementary portrait of the artist at work is included with this catalogue as a DVD

"Hoover street revival est la chronique de la vie dans le ghetto noir de South Central, à Los Angeles. Autour de l'église de Greater Bethany se rassemble la communauté des fidèles. C'est là qu'officie l'évêque Jones dont les prêches électriques attirent les foules. Il aborde avec humanité et ironie tous les problèmes que doivent affronter quotidiennement les habitants du ghetto, ceux qui se posent aux sociétés urbaines en ce début de XXIe siècle. Sermons, gospels et vie quotidienne dans le ghetto, avec ses drames et ses moments de joie, s'entremêlent avec humour pour former une fresque exceptionnelle d'une communauté urbaine en crise aux États-Unis

The pervert's guide to cinema : präsentiert von Slavoj Žižek( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der Kulturtheoretiker Slavoj Zizek vertritt die These, dass Kino nicht primär dazu da ist, vorhandene Wünsche zu befriedigen, sondern das Publikum die Sehnsucht lehrt. Anhand eines wilden und bisweilen spekulativen, stets höchst unterhaltsamen "Ritts" durch die Filmgeschichte untersucht er Strategien und jongliert mit den Subtexten hinter den Bildern, wobei er berühmte Szenen interpretierend nachstellt. Dabei geht es nicht um psychoanalytische Filmauslegung, sondern um einen grundlegenden (und spielerisch-lustvoll aufbereiteten) Dialog zwischen Film und Philosophie/Psychoanalyse." [filmdienst.de]
