"Supernovas are as spectacular as they are rare. In early 1987, a giant star exploded in the sky -- one of the most violent celestial events since the creation of the universe ... Why did this phenomenon fascinate, baffle, and delight astronomers? What causes a star to explode? How will these energy blasts help us understand our universe?"--Container

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in 1952 in Macao, China, Adrift in Macao is a loving parody of film noir movies. Everyone that comes to Macao is waiting for something, and though none of them know exactly what that is, they hang around to find out. The characters include your film noir standards, like Lureena, the curvacious and wised-up-dame, who luckily bumps into Rick Shaw, the cynical surf and turf casino owner her first night in town. She ends up getting a job singing in his night club - perhaps for no reason other than the fact that she looks great in a slinky dress. And don't forget about Mitch, the American who has just been framed for murder by the mysteries villain McGuffin. With songs and quips, puns and farcical shenanigans, this musical parody is bound to please audiences of all ages"--P. [4] of cover

Presents by Michael Snow( Visual )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tourné en 1981, Presents s'avère un véritable présent pour les yeux. Très ludique, le film étire et rétrécit l'image puis instaure une narration dans un décor qui sera littéralement "détruit" par la caméra. Celle-ci s'envole, par la suite, libre témoin de la réalité. "Le film porte sur deux principes de cinéma opposés, note le cinéaste. La première partie du film est tout à fait artificielle, mais totalement préparée. La deuxième implique la mécanique du cinéma, caméra à l'épaule, mais c'est un documentaire sur la vie réelle."". Site La presse.ca, consulté le 4 sept. 2013
