Waking life by Richard Linklater( Visual )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unidentified protagonist experiences a metaphysical identity crisis: he awakens in a dream in which he levitates, rides the highway in a boat and has other peculiar adventures. The story is a record of his random encounters with teachers, students, street people, and television personalities engaged in conversations, debates, rants, monologues, and speculations, all eagerly delivering their philosophical spiels, tall tales, and pet theories. This dream of a film recognizes that the fabric of reality can stretch and tear under the weight of ideas, and that this is part of what gives value to both film and dreams. Technologically, it transforms photographed reality into sophisticated cartoons by superimposing brightly hued digital animation on live-action digital video. This technique provides a perfect visual metaphor to use in an open- ended fable about perception itself

The bridge by Eric Steel( Visual )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2004, 24 people jumped to their deaths from the Golden Gate Bridge. More people have chosen to end their lives at the Golden Gate Bridge than anywhere else in the world."--End titles. What makes the suicides at the bridge so unusual is that they take place in broad daylight, in front of people in a busy place - unlike most suicides, which are enacted in extreme privacy. Filmmaker Eric Steel and his crew spent 2004 filming the bridge during daylight hours from two locations, grappling with the ethical question of when to alert authorities, and their responsibilities as observers. The film features interviews with the families and friends of some of the victims that year, as well as one person who changed his mind. Offering a glimpse into one of the darkest, most impenetrable corners of the human mind, the film also interrogates society's ability to blithely ignore the grim realities of depression, mental illness, and drug abuse that underly so many suicides. These are only some of the factors discussed by the film, common to the twenty four people who died at the Golden Gate Bridge in 2004, who are now linked together forever by a 4 second fall in an otherwise magically, mysteriously beautiful place
