"The Orphan Film Symposium is a biennial gathering of scholars, archivists, media artists, curators, preservationists, librarians, collectors, distributors, documentarians, students, researchers, musicians, and others devoted to saving, studying, and screening all manner of neglected moving image artifacts. Since 1999, the enterprise has grown into a year-round research and preservation of an eclectic array of rediscovered films and videos. This DVD sampler of orphan films was produced exclusively for those participating in the 7th Orphan Film Symposium [on April 7-10], 2010. The eleven titles come from the libraries of the two institutions that have hosted and organized Orphans 1 through 7, the University of South Carolina and New York University. They represent some of the many categories of images that fall under the rubric of 'orphan film': newsreels, outtakes, sponsored films, documentary fragments, silent and public domain works, educational and advocacy films, raw footage, appropriated video, and home movies."--Container

Rate of change( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Acts of light is a trilogy consisting of Rate of change, Angular momentum, and Circles of confusion. Together they develop a study of pure color based on the notion that film is essentially change and not motion. The films build one on the other as first pure change, then relational change, and finally, irrational change. They can be seen together or as separate works. This section has no original, no frames, only slow continuously shifting colors, cycling around the perimeter of the spectrum. The changes are so slow as to be unseen, yet they alter perception of the color"--Notes from the filmmaker

Nobody leaves : impressions of Poland by Ryszard Kapuscinski( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

'A peculiar genius with no modern equivalent, except possibly Kafka' - Jonathan Miller Regarded as a central part of Kapuscinski's work, these vivid portraits of life in the depths of Poland embody the young writer's mastery of literary reportage When the great Ryszard Kapuscinski was a young journalist in the early 1960s, he was sent to the farthest reaches of his native Poland between foreign assignments. The resulting pieces brought together in this new collection, nearly all of which are translated into English for the first time, reveal a place just as strange as the distant lands he visited. From forgotten villages to collective farms, Kapuscinski explores a Poland that is post-Stalinist but still Communist; a country on the edge of modernity. He encounters those for whom the promises of rising living standards never worked out as planned, those who would have been misfits under any political system, those tied to the land and those dreaming of escape
