The Bruce Petty collection by Bruce Petty( Visual )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating collection drawing together four unique short films devised, written or directed by renowned cartoonist and filmmaker Bruce Petty. The collection features the Academy Award winning Leisure plus The Magic Arts, Megalomedia and The Movers. Leisure (made in 1976, duration 14 mins) takes a wry look at the world of work and leisure through history. It considers our changing patterns of work since the Industrial Revolution and the effects mechanisation and electricity have had on our leisure time. The Magic Arts (1978, 19 mins) is a visual onslaught of artistic ideas, showing how art relates to and intertwines with our daily lives. Megalomedia (1981, 28 mins) is a humorous and searching examination of the development of media and its audience. Master of ceremonies, Max Gillies guides us through a rapid succession of thoughts and perceptions in three parts, the Media Machine, the Media Market and the Media Mind. The Movers (1987, 49 mins) provides an historical perspective of the development of technology from the primitive age through to the nuclear age. It examines the human being's, search for the good time'. 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of Australia. Executive Producer: Ron Saunders. Producer: Suzanne Baker. Director: Bruce Petty, Gil Brealey. Writer: Bruce Petty
Sister, if only you knew( Visual )

This film explores the pressures experienced by Aboriginal women living in the city, and the effect that these pressures also have on their men and their children. In spite of all life's difficulties, the women seem to survive the urban environment better than the men. Their humour, intelligence and resilience in the face of adversity shines through. When asked if they wanted to change anything in the content of this film, the participants' response was "it tells the truth and that is what is important."
The Human Face of China. Something for Everyone( Visual )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the revolution of 1949, the People's Republic of China has undergone history's most massive land reform. When this film was made, all of rural China had been divided into agricultural communes under the collective ownership of the peasants. The film visits the Hua Tung People's Commune in Kwangtung Province, an area inhabited by some 52,000 people. By focusing on the activities of a single production team, it attempts to show the human face of the revolution. It depicts many aspects of the daily routine and shows how Hua Tung tries to be self-sufficient in the needs of all its people, but also how the system allows for little individualism
