Film report from a Canadian scientific expedition that put a plastic bubble on the floor of the Arctic Ocean to serve as workshop and rest station for scientists working below the Arctic ice. What it took, in both planning and on-the-spot improvisation, to chop through the heavy ice, and to lower and anchor the huge dome in place in the dark and cold of Resolute Bay, is fully illustrated by film and commentary. (Award: Bordeaux.)
Arctic IV( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At Canada's frozen top of the world, an eyewitness view of a new and daring step in understanding what lies beneath the perpetual ice. This is the story of an Arctic diving expedition, led by Dr. Joseph MacInnis and a team of scientists, during two months of continuous springtime daylight. The dives are a test of both men and equipment as well as an exploration of the high northern marine environment. What they discovered is interestingly documented in this film. (Award: Trento.)

From a quiet, neglected corner of Nova Scotia, a meeting with the Black community that shows both the traditional attitudes of the older generation and the more alert younger generation.

In the second film, Arctic adventurer and idealist, Joe MacInnis is convinced Canadians must become better acquainted with the Arctic, while respecting its fragile environment.

Un homme by Robin Spry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

À la fois drame social et psychologique, Un homme est aussi un film d'action et de suspense, du début à la fin. Abordant des thèmes contemporains, depuis la pollution industrielle jusqu'à la manipulation de l'information, en passant par la corruption et la violence, ce film de fiction n'en reflète pas moins une certaine réalité qu'il s'applique à dénoncer. (Prix : Toronto, Anvers, Montréal et Varna.)
