Fate, however, has a different plan for him, as acts of both revenge and kindness render him front-page news. Also starring the blue-eyed phenomenon Michèle Morgan in her first major role, and the menacing Michel Simon, Port of Shadows (Le Quai des brumes) starkly portrays an underworld of lonely souls wrestling with their own destinies. Based on the novel by Pierre Mac Orlan, the inimitable team of director Marcel Carné and writer Jacques Prévert deliver a quintessential example of poetic realism and a classic film from the golden age of French cinema."--Website

The Phantom of Liberty opens in nineteenth century Toledo. Drunken French troops randomly murder Toledo's citizenry as they desecrate the church. In an abrupt shift, director Buñuel then segues to a modern-day Parisian park, where two au pairs engage in a conversation on the horrors of Napoleonic wars, while a few feet away their young charges are accosted by a local pederast. In this tour of the modern condition, the film then shifts to the children's Parisian parents and then farther afield to embrace a seemingly random critique of the contemporary European psyche

A. K. by Chris Marker( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Multi media play inspired by contemporary events and refracted through Franz Kafka's The trial, Not Yet It's Difficult (NYID) decodes the matrix of technology and society. K fuses hard-core physical action, digital technology, sonic architectures and new texts to portray the dark, humorous and violent world of democracy in the Information Age. Part social realism, part science fiction, part fable, part documentary, K lays bare our fragile social apparatus in a hyper-real tsunami of savage absurdism."--Container
