Fishtank ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The video vérité of Fishtank is contained with the compressed space of the flat. Ray stands alone in the dark kitchen, feeding fish. Liz plays computer games. Jason swats a fly on a wall. Sometimes they talk, sometimes they argue. Dispassionately, yet compassionately, Billingham's film registers the emotional territory of the flat and his family who live there. He creates a pattern of pathos, despair and hope. Fishtank crafts a terrible beauty from the landscape of family life"--Www.illumin.co.uk

The spirit of freedom ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The program begins with May 1968; the Left is at the height of its triumph. Maoism, Baader-Meinhoff terrorism, Cambodia. Although the hushed crowd at Jean-Paul Sartre's funeral procession in 1980 is large and reverent, this event marks a turning point. Today's intelligentsia has become isolated, introverted; human rights has become its sole cause. Could it be that the intellectual is a dying breed?
