Ernest Hemingway : Rivers to the sea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than 40 years after his death, Hemingway is one of the most widely read, and widely written about American authors. His distinct style and profound influence are indisputable; his larger-than-life persona is still the stuff of heated debate. As well known in his lifetime as any movie star, Hemingway was a dashing international figure who challenged the notion that writers exist in an ivory tower. There were the battles, the bull fights, the big game, the booze-and he channeled these experiences into stark prose, creating a new form of expression, describing action and emotion in simple, authentic terms. An enormous critical success, his major works-The Old Man and the Sea, A Farewell to Arms, The Sun Also Rises, For Whom the Bell Tolls-are still in print, some in as many as 20 languages. The recent excitement over Cuba's release of their Hemingway collection is unmatched in modern literature. It is the literature, it is the written word and the art of Hemingway's storytelling that forms the heart and the freshness of this film, the point of departure from which Hemingway's life and work are uniquely explored."

The Buddha( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two-thousand-five-hundred years ago in northern India, Prince Siddhartha left his palace where he had spent twenty-nine years indulging in pleasures. He was determined to comprehend the nature of human suffering. After a gruelling spiritual quest that lasted six years, he at last attained enlightenment meditating under a fig tree. He became the Buddha, the 'awakened one', and devoted the rest of his life to teaching the way to enlightenment that he himself had found, giving birth to one of the world's great religions. Award-winning filmmaker David Grubin brings to life the story of Siddhartha and his journey in The Buddha, a two-part documentary narrated by actor Richard Gere. The program uses ancient artwork that depicts the various stages of Siddhartha's journey, contemporary animation that vividly portrays the legends surrounding the Buddha and contemporary footage of northern India, where many of the religious rituals from the Buddha's time are still practiced today. Experts on the Buddha, representing a variety of disciplines, relate the key episodes of the Buddha's life and reflect on what his journey means for us today. They include, among others, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Pulitzer Prize winning poet W.S. Merwin, as well as practicing Buddhist monastics
