The American savannah( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawns are us ... We came down from the trees and set foot on grassy savannahs. And we're still on them! Lawns are life, they're parks, gardens, cemeteries, golf courses, sports' fields. They're places to lie on, to play on, to sleep on, to picnic on. They're the smell of mown grass at twilight. But they do have a dark side! Every year, lawns drink twice as much water as the average family. Every year, American lawns absorb seventy million pounds of pesticides, endangering the lives of the kids playing on them and the adults living around them. Lawns are us because lawns are passion and folly, freedom and constraint, beauty and poison, life and death. Lawns are contradictions. Like us. With sympathy and skepticism, wit and a probing eye, AMERICAN SAVANNAH examines that fascinating human foible, the lawn, casting a satirical glance on the obsession it has become

"The Inuit co-directors ... take a clear and critical look at the major challenges facing their future, their children's future and their society. The importance of the Inuktitut language and education, of economic development, of leadership and the reconciliation between tradition and modernity are at the heart of their preoccupations."
Danser Perreault( Visual )

4 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au Québec, peu de chorégraphes sont aussi connus et appréciés que Jean-Pierre Perreault. Personne nʹa oublié Joe et ses troublantes silhouettes anonymes en imperméable, martelant le plancher. Un spectacle repris une quinzaine de fois depuis sa création dans les années 80. Mais Jean-Pierre Perreault sʹadonnait avec autant de ferveur et de talent à la peinture. Il dessinait ou peignait toutes ses chorégraphies. Dans ce grand poème visuel tourné en haute définition, chorégraphies, toiles, dessins et aquarelles se fondent en un feu dʹartifice révélant le perfectionnisme, la vulnérabilité et lʹaudace de cet homme qui, selon les mots du chorégraphe Paul-André Fortier, a "contribué de façon marquée à façonner lʹidentité de la danse québécoise".

"Asmaa Ibnouzahir et Geneviève Lepage, deux jeunes Québécoises engagées, indépendantes d'esprit et éduquées, sont également des femmes voilées. Geneviève s'est convertie à l'islam en 2001, à la suite des événements du 11 septembre. Musulmane d'origine, Asmaa a décidé de pratiquer sa religion "comme elle a été prescrite", en 2004, après avoir vécu les déchirements classiques des enfants d'immigrés. Bien qu'elles soient à l'image de leur génération, ces deux femmes vivent aussi, à cause de leurs convictions religieuses, sur une autre planète. Ce documentaire explore une réalité encore méconnue, celle des femmes voilées tentant de reconcilier leur foi à la vie moderne."--Conteneur
