Message To Love - The Isle of Wight Music Festival 1970 directed by Murray Lerner

(WIKI) Message to Love (directed and produced by Murray Lerner) is a feature documentary film of the Isle of Wight Festival 1970.[1] The film unsparingly, often comically depicts the myriad problems associated with the famously chaotic festival—the main program of which was held on August 26–30, 1970—including gate-crashing, numerous crowd incursions onto the stage, Kris Kristofferson being booed offstage, and head promoter Rikki Farr's rants against the audience, which only intensified as the situation deteriorated: "We put this festival on, you bastards, with a lot of love! We worked for one year for you pigs! And you wanna break our walls down and you wanna destroy it? Well you go to hell!"

In addition, several near-riots occurred over the price of tickets, as well as during several of the performances that took place over the weekend, especially Jimi Hendrix's last-ever live appearance in England.

Due to financial difficulties, Message to Love wasn't released until 1997, 27 years after the event, though it premiered at a San Jose film festival in 1995.[2] A CD of the soundtrack was also issued by Castle Communications/Sony Legacy in 1997.

In recent years, Lerner's copious 16mm concert footage has been repurposed to create a wealth of complete-performance DVD releases by Hendrix (Blue Wild Angel), Miles Davis (Miles Electric - A Different Kind of Blue), The Who (Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970), Jethro Tull (Nothing Is Easy: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970), Emerson, Lake & Palmer (The Birth Of A Band: Isle of Wight 1970), The Moody Blues (Threshold of a Dream: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970), Leonard Cohen (Leonard Cohen Live at The Isle of Wight 1970), and Free (Free Forever DVD).

The film derives its title from a song that Jimi Hendrix performed, and a brief clip is shown during the opening credits.
Performances (not in order of appearance):
Jimi Hendrix ("Message to Love", "Machine Gun", "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", "Foxy Lady", "Purple Haze"), Emerson, Lake & Palmer ("Pictures at an Exhibition"), The Who ("Young Man Blues", "Naked Eye"), Ten Years After ("I Can't Keep from Crying Sometimes"), The Doors ("When the Music's Over", "The End"), The Moody Blues ("Nights in White Satin"), Free ("All Right Now"), Jethro Tull ("My Sunday Feeling"), Taste ("Sinner Boy", "Gamblin' Blues"), Family ("The Weaver's Answer"), Kris Kristofferson ("Me and Bobby McGee"), Joan Baez ("Let It Be"), John Sebastian ("Red Eye Express"), Tiny Tim ("There'll Always Be an England"), Leonard Cohen ("Suzanne"), Joni Mitchell ("Woodstock", "Big Yellow Taxi"), Miles Davis ("Call It Anything")

The Truman Show directed by Peter Weir (eng. st rom.)

(WIKI) The Truman Show is a 1998 American satirical comedy-drama film directed by Peter Weir and written by Andrew Niccol. The cast includes Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank, as well as Laura Linney, Noah Emmerich, Ed Harris and Natascha McElhone. The film chronicles the life of a man who is initially unaware that he is living in a constructed reality television show, broadcast around the clock to billions of people across the globe. Truman becomes suspicious of his perceived reality and embarks on a quest to discover the truth about his life.

The genesis of The Truman Show was a spec script by Niccol, inspired by an episode of The Twilight Zone called "Special Service".[1] The original draft was more in tone of a science fiction thriller, with the story set in New York City. Scott Rudin purchased the script, and instantly set the project up at Paramount Pictures. Brian De Palma was in contention to direct before Weir took over and managed to make the film for $60 million against the estimated $80 million budget. Niccol rewrote the script simultaneously as the filmmakers were waiting for Carrey's schedule to open up for filming. The majority of filming took place at Seaside, Florida, a master-planned community located in the Florida Panhandle.

The film was a financial and critical success, and earned numerous nominations at the 71st Academy Awards, 56th Golden Globe Awards, 52nd British Academy Film Awards and The Saturn Awards. The Truman Show has been analyzed as a thesis on Christianity, metaphilosophy, simulated reality, existentialism and the rise of reality television.

Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) lived his entire life, since before birth, in front of cameras for The Truman Show, although he is unaware of this fact. Truman's life is filmed through thousands of hidden cameras, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and broadcast live around the world, allowing executive producer Christof (Ed Harris) to capture Truman's real emotion and human behavior when put in certain situations. Truman's hometown of Seahaven is a complete set built under a giant arcological dome, populated by the show's actors and crew, allowing Christof to control every aspect of Truman's life, even the weather. To prevent Truman from discovering his false reality, Christof has invented means of dissuading his sense of exploration, including "killing" his father in a storm while on a fishing trip to instill in him a fear of the water, and making many news reports and "adverts" about the dangers of travelling, and featuring television shows about how good it is to stay at home. However, despite Christof's control, Truman has managed to behave in unexpected manners, in particular falling in love with an extra, Sylvia (Natasha McElhone),known to Truman as Lauren, instead of Meryl (Laura Linney), the character intended to be his wife. Though Sylvia is removed from the set quickly, her memory still resonates with him, and he "secretly" thinks of her outside of his marriage to Meryl. Sylvia shortly afterwards becomes part of a "Free Truman" campaign that fights to have Truman freed from the show.

During the 30th year of The Truman Show, Truman begins to notice certain aspects of his near-perfect world that seem out of place, such as a falling spotlight from the artificial night sky constellations that nearly hits him (quickly passed off by local radio as an aircraft's dislodged landing light) and Truman's car radio accidentally picking up conversation between the show's crew. As well as these strange one-off occurrences, Truman also becomes aware of more subtle abnormalities within his regular day-to-day life, such as the way in which the same people appear in the same places at certain times each day and Meryl's tendency to blatantly advertise the various products she buys. These events are punctuated by the reappearance of Truman's supposedly "dead" father onto the set, at first dressed as a hobo. The old man is suddenly whisked away as soon as Truman notices him.

Despite the best efforts of his family and his best friend Marlon to reassure him (the latter being fed lines of comforting dialogue by Christof through a wireless earpiece), all these events cause Truman to start wondering about his life, realizing how the world seems to revolve around him. Meryl grows increasingly stressed by the pressure of perpetuating the deception, and their marriage unravels in the face of Truman's increasing skepticism and attendant hostility towards her. Truman seeks to get away from Seahaven but is blocked by the inability to arrange for flights, bus breakdowns, sudden masses of traffic, a forest fire, and an apparent nuclear meltdown -- which he believes until the policeman, whom Truman had never met before, calls him by name. After Meryl breaks down and is taken off the show, Christof officially brings back Truman's father, hoping his presence will keep Truman from trying to leave. However, he only provides a temporary respite: Truman soon becomes isolated and begins staying alone in his basement after Meryl "leaves" him. One night, Truman manages to fool the cameras and escapes the basement undetected via a secret tunnel, forcing Christof to temporarily suspend broadcasting of the show for the first time in its history. This causes a surge in viewership, with many viewers, including Sylvia, cheering on Truman's escape attempt.

Christof orders every actor and crew member to search the town, even breaking the town's daylight cycle to help in the search. They find that Truman has managed to overcome his fear of the water and has been sailing away from the town in a small boat named Santa Maria (the name of the largest of the three ships with which Christopher Columbus sailed to the New World). After restoring the broadcast, Christof orders the show's crew to create a large storm to try to capsize the boat, prompting a heated debate with his superiors over the morality and legality of killing Truman off in front of a live global audience. However, Truman's determination eventually leads Christof to terminate the storm. As Truman recovers, the boat reaches the edge of the dome, its bow piercing through the dome's painted sky. An awe-struck Truman then discovers a flight of stairs nearby, leading to a door marked "EXIT". As he contemplates leaving his world, Christof speaks directly to Truman via a powerful sound system, trying to persuade him to stay and arguing that there is no more truth in the real world than there is in his own, artificial world. Truman, after a moment's thought, delivers his catchphrase — "In case I don't see you... good afternoon, good evening, and good night" —, bows to his audience and steps through the door and into the real world. The assembled television viewers excitedly celebrate Truman's escape, and Sylvia quickly leaves her apartment to reunite with him. A network executive orders the crew to cease transmission. With the show completed, members of Truman's former audience are shown looking for something else to watch.

Nous irons tous au Baletti réalisé par François Uditurier & François Missen

«Nous irons tous au Baletti», c’est la rencontre avec une génération qui a connu Marseille lorsque les dancings et les bals de quartier peuplaient tous les coins de rue de la ville. Une génération pour qui le mot "baletti" a un sens et une histoire.

Mystery in the Kitchen directed by Don Haldane, 1958, 23 min 20 s

Why does a housewife concerned for her family's welfare feed them so inadequately that she endangers their very lives? The film is a humorous and satirical attempt to remind the average housewife that it is not enough to be aware of modern food facts; they must also be applied in daily food purchasing and preparation.

BBC: All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace - The Use and Abuse of Vegetational Concepts directed by Adam Curtis

A series of films exploring the idea that we have been colonised by the machines we have built. Although we don't realise it, the way we see everything in the world today is through the eyes of the computers.

This is the story of how our modern scientific idea of nature, the self-regulating ecosystem, is actually a machine fantasy. It has little to do with the real complexity of nature. It is based on cybernetic ideas that were projected on to nature in the 1950s by ambitious scientists. A static machine theory of order that sees humans, and everything else on the planet, as components - cogs - in a system.

But in an age disillusioned with politics, the self-regulating ecosystem has become the model for utopian ideas of human 'self-organizing networks' - dreams of new ways of organising societies without leaders, as in the Facebook and Twitter revolutions, and in global visions of connectivity like the Gaia theory.

This powerful idea emerged out of the hippie communes in America in the 1960s, and from counterculture computer scientists who believed that global webs of computers could liberate the world.

But, at the very moment this was happening, the science of ecology discovered that the theory of the self-regulating ecosystem wasn't true. Instead they found that nature was really dynamic and constantly changing in unpredictable ways. But the dream of the self-organizing network had by now captured our imaginations - because it offered an alternative to the dangerous and discredited ideas of politics.

Roulette TV: Michael Gordon directed by Uri Gal-Ed

Raised in Nicaraqua in an Eastern European community, Michael Gordon's music has the vitality and directness of much of world music. Educated at Yale University, Gordon's music nevertheless grows from intuitive procedures which embrace minimalism with flavors of folk styles. His recent work includes a large scale symphony with projections entitled "Descasia" premiered by the Basel Symfonietta. He continues to develop the new form called video opera, and to work with the "Bang on a Can" Festival of which he was a co-founder. For his Roulette TV performance, Gordon presents three newly composed untitled works for three violinists and sound samples triggered from a keyboard. In the first piece, the violinists play lilting jig-type dance patterns in an echo-ing (time delay) relationship underscored by a simple tango rhythm. The next piece is an ethereal minimalist lullaby with a gentle pulse and chord progression on the keyboard and a long sustained melody played by the violin trio. The piece has a more aggressive dance nature with constant patterns assigned to the violins and offbeat rhythmic stabs on the keyboard. In his interview, Gordon discusses his early musical training and how it affects his life today, the philosophy of the Bang on a Can Festival, his attraction to string instruments, his collaborative comic-book-opera with David Lang and Julia Wolf entitled "The Carbon Copy Building", and he explicates his notion of "musical thought."

Vous n'avez encore rien vu réalisé par Alain Renais

(WIKI) Vous n'avez encore rien vu est un film français réalisé par Alain Resnais, sorti le 26 septembre 2012.

Après sa mort, Antoine d'Anthac, homme de théâtre, fait convoquer dans sa résidence de montagne, par l'intermédiaire d'un notaire, tous ses amis comédiens ayant joué dans différentes versions de sa pièce Eurydice. Il a enregistré avant de mourir une déclaration dans laquelle il leur demande de visionner une captation des répétitions de cette pièce : une jeune troupe lui a en effet demandé l'autorisation de la monter, et il a besoin des avis de ses amis. Ceux-ci s'installent dans des canapés et vont regarder les 4 actes de la pièce de théâtre projetée sur un écran de cinéma. Dans cette pièce, Eurydice, une comédienne de théâtre, rencontre Orphée, un violoniste. Peu à peu, les acteurs-spectateurs se mettent à revivre la pièce et à la jouer en superposition avec la pièce projetée. Les rôles principaux du couple Orphée-Eurydice passent ainsi successivement d'Arditti-Azéma à Wilson-Consigny et à Dieuaide-Pons. Ce sont ainsi 3 générations d'acteurs qui jouent la pièce, ceux de la soixantaine, ceux de la quarantaine, et ceux de la vingtaine, les 3 situations s'imbriquant au-delà du réel. L'intrigue amoureuse entre Orphée et Eurydice se résout autour du fait que, Eurydice ayant péri dans un accident, il lui est offert de revivre à condition qu'Orphée ne se retourne pas pour la regarder tant que l'aube n'a pas point. Après la fin de la projection, un rebondissement survient concernant Antoine.

Le film est une libre variation sur l'Eurydice de Jean Anouilh.

Carnets d'Égypte: La mémoire du Nil réalisé par Jean-Louis Porte

Il donne à l'Egypte ses 3 % de terre cultivable, il est le plus long fleuve du monde, le seul à couler du sud au nord. Il est considéré comme un dieu par les pharaons et sa crue annuelle est due à une larme d'Isis. Les grandes pyramides, les temples de Louxor, de Philae, d'Abou Simbel lui sont liés et les barques funéraires des souverains l'empruntent pour le voyage d'éternité. Aujourd'hui, les pêcheurs du delta utilisent les mêmes barques de roseaux que celles qui sont peintes dans les tombeaux de la Vallée des Rois; vers le Caire apparaissent les felouques qui cabotent d'un port à l'autre, de Louxor à Assouan ce sont les navires des croisières touristiques...

Appunti per un'orestiade africana réalisé par Pier Paolo Pasolini (ital. st fr.)

(WIKI) Appunti per un'Orestiade africana è un film documentario italiano del 1970, diretto da Pier Paolo Pasolini, girato come sopralluogo in Africa per la produzione successiva, mai effettuata, di un film che prendesse spunto dalla tragedia dell'Orestiade di Eschilo. Si tratta di uno dei più importanti documenti di cinema in Africa e rappresenta un importante documento per l'antropologia dell'immagine.

Il documentario propedeutico al “film da farsi”, che si potrebbe definire come un vero e proprio taccuino d'immagini in movimento, consiste di tre diversi tipi di materiale filmico: il primo è a tutti gli effetti un documentario di viaggio, girato durante due soggiorni in Uganda e Tanzania rispettivamente nel dicembre del 1968 e nel febbraio del '69 completato da alcuni cinegiornali della guerra in Biafra (1967/69); l'obiettivo era quello di rintracciare i luoghi, i volti, gli oggetti per la trasposizione cinematografica dell'Orestea di Eschilo; il secondo girato riprende il dibattito/confronto tra Pasolini ed alcuni studenti africani dell'Università “La Sapienza” di Roma sull'idea stessa di ambientazione per la tragedia eschilea e sui risvolti delle vicende africane post-coloniali, mentre il terzo rappresenta una sorta di variazione sul tema e consiste in una jazz session eseguita da Yvonne Murray e Archie Savage al FolkStudio di Roma. Appunti per un'Orestiade africana costituisce dunque l'ultimo assemblaggio sperimentale pasoliniano sul materiale raccolto a partire dal 1959, anno della prima traduzione per la messinscena con Vittorio Gassman al Teatro greco, di Siracusa nella primavera del 1960, fino all'ultimo montaggio del '70 e alla prima proiezione a Venezia, il 1º settembre del 1973, nel corso delle "Giornate del cinema italiano". A differenza degli altri due progetti sul mito del mondo greco arcaico, s'interrompe, in questo specifico caso, la realizzazione del film vero e proprio anche se l'indagine visiva e antropologica avviata continuerà ad avere eco anche nei lavori successivi, in particolare in Medea (1971) e ne Il fiore delle Mille e una notte (1974); così come s'interrompe anche quel progetto di maggior respiro per un “poema sul Terzo Mondo” che avrebbe riguardato Africa, India, Yemen, Sud America e ghetti afro-americani.
Carnet de notes pour une Orestie africaine (titre original : Appunti1 per un'Orestiade africana) est un film italien réalisé par Pier Paolo Pasolini, sorti en 1970.

Il s'agit d'un film documentaire tourné comme un repérage en Afrique en vue de la réalisation d'un film, qui n'a jamais vu le jour, tiré de la tragédie de l'Orestie d'Eschyle.

Il a été présenté hors-concours au Festival de Cannes 1976.

Québec Soft (La musique adoucit les mœurs) réalisé par Jacques Godbout, 1985, 26 min 5 s

Dans ce court métrage documentaire réalisé par Jacques Godbout, on se demande si l’influence du «son américain» nuit à la tradition de la chanson francophone québécoise. En 1985, au moment de tourner le film, la plupart des nouveaux groupes musicaux québécois optent pour l'anglais. Le phénomène doit-il inquiéter? Est-il le signe d'une nouvelle culture planétaire? Le cinéaste interroge des vedettes, tels les Luc Plamondon, François Dompierre et des groupes (SPA Romance, The Box).

ARTE: Mini monstres en Amazonie: Paroles d’Insectes réalisé par Quincy Russel

Pour la première fois, ces insectes minuscules aux formes délirantes révèlent leur étrangeté à travers d'éblouissantes images. Ces insectes microscopiques, baptisés membracidea néo-tropicaux, qui vivent dans la canopée de la forêt tropicale humide, étaient presque inconnus des chercheurs. intrigués par leur comportement et leur morphologie, des scientifiques en ont capturés pour la première fois en Équateur. Grâce aux nouvelles techniques de microscopie électronique, ces insectes ont pu être filmés, révélant leurs mystères à travers de superbes agrandissements

Ils semblent sortis de l'imagination débridée d'un auteur de film de science-fiction et pourtant ce sont des créatures vivantes: les membracides, ignorés jusqu'ici des scientifiques, sont les vedettes du documentaire d'Arte.

Ces Etranges Membracides:
Ces insectes minuscules (moins d'un centimètre) aux formes étranges et inquiétantes, vivant dans la canopée de la forêt tropicale humide, demeurent mystérieux tant dans leurs comportements que dans leur sidérante morphologie.

Une équipe de chercheurs est allée à leur rencontre au fin fond de l'Amazonie équatorienne, dans le parc national de Yasuni, et en a ramené des images spectaculaires, une première technique et scientifique.Morphologie complexe

Munis de deux paires d'yeux, trois paires de pattes, deux paires d'ailes thoraciques et d'un stylet acéré qui leur permet de percer l'écorce des arbres et de sucer la sève, ces «mini monstres» font penser à des sculptures d'art moderne.

Leur «pronotum», partie intermédiaire entre la tête et le thorax, présente une impressionnante excroissance, garnie de bulbes velus ou hérissée de pointes : une arme défensive? Un organe sensoriel ? Pour percevoir quoi ? Les scientifiques s'interrogent, persuadés comme Aristote que « la nature ne fait jamais rien par hasard ». « Quand un organisme a une morphologie aussi complexe, c'est qu'elle a un avantage », estime le professeur Stuart McKamey, entomologiste et conseiller scientifique du film. Les membracides ont développé pour survivre des stratégies efficaces - camouflage, mimétisme, alliances avec d'autres espèces. Leur existence était jusqu'alors presque totalement ignorée de la communauté scientifique alors qu'ils sont présents sur terre depuis plus de 40 millions d'années.

Beaumont Newhall: The History of Photography directed by Shirley Casados

The history of photography is Beaumont Newhall! Throughout most of the 20th century he has seen a central figure in the movement to have photography recognized as an art form. It might also be said that he created the “history of photography” as a distinct and respected field of study. As a founder and father of the history of photography, photographer, curator, art historian, writer, scholar, teacher and administrator it seems as if there has been more than one Beaumont Newhall. Beginning in 1938 at the Museum of Modern Art, he created the first retrospective exhibition of the 100-year-old art of photography. This documentary highlights some of Beaumont’s experiences of being a lifelong friend, mentor and confident of many photographers now in the annals of history.

While stoned, he admits to Sam that his best friend committed suicide the year before. He also walks in on Patrick and Brad, (Johnny Simmons), a popular jock, making out in a room. Sam realizes that Charlie has no other friends, so she and Patrick resolve to make Charlie part of their group. Charlie also agrees to help Sam prepare for her SAT exams to enter her chosen college. On the way home, they drive through a tunnel and Sam stands up in the back of the pickup truck while listening to a song known through the film as "The Tunnel Song" ("Heroes" by David Bowie).

During Christmas, the group organise a Secret Santa. Even though Sam was not Charlie's Santa, she still gives him a present, a vintage typewriter. They start talking about relationships: Charlie reveals he has never been kissed, let alone had a girlfriend. Sam opens up and tells him that her first kiss was from her father's boss when she was 11 years old. Sam then tells Charlie that she wants his first kiss to be from someone who loves him and she kisses Charlie.

Sam, Patrick and all of their friends take part in acting out The Rocky Horror Picture Show at a theatre, with Sam as Janet and Patrick plays Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As time goes on, Charlie is asked to take part in the show as Rocky when Sam's college boyfriend, Craig, (Reece Thompson) isn't able to make it. Afterwards, an impressed Mary Elizabeth, (Mae Whitman), one of their friends, asks Charlie to the Sadie Hawkins dance and Charlie accepts. After the dance, Mary Elizabeth takes Charlie to her house and they kiss and make out, and she declares how glad she is to have him as her boyfriend. Not wanting to hurt her feelings, Charlie continues to reluctantly be her boyfriend.

Mary Elizabeth dominates the relationship, and Charlie grows irritated by her. At a party, they break up during a game of Truth or Dare when Charlie, without thinking, kisses Sam after being dared to kiss the most beautiful girl in the room, and a fallout ensues. Sam was furious at Charlie. Charlie returns sadly to isolation and loneliness after being told by Patrick to stay away while things cooled down. During his isolation from his friends, Charlie has flashbacks of the death of his Aunt Helen, (Melanie Lynskey) who died when in a car accident when he was seven years old.

Later, Patrick breaks up with his boyfriend Brad, a popular jock who is in the closet, after Brad's strict father caught them both together and hit his son. At the school cafeteria, Brad calls Patrick a "faggot" as he was trying to prove to everyone that he is not at all friends with Patrick. Patrick is infuriated and attempts to attack him, but Brad's friends beat him up until Charlie intervenes and beats up Brad's friend. Charlie blacks out, waking up to see his bruised knuckles and the boys on the floor. After this, Patrick, Sam, and Charlie reconcile as friends, Mary Elizabeth having since moved on from the breakup and started to date Peter, Craig's friend.

Sam breaks up with Craig after finding out he has been cheating on her the entire time. Sam receives her college acceptance letter from Penn State University, which states that she must leave immediately for a summer introductory program. The night before she departs, Sam takes Charlie upstairs where she asks why he never asked her out, and after several heartfelt confessions to each other, they kiss. When she starts to touch him on his thigh, he pulls away gently. Sam asks, "What's wrong?" with Charlie replying, "Nothing" and they laid on the bed making out. In the morning, Charlie says goodbye as Sam and Patrick leave for college, leaving Charlie emotionally shaken and alone again.

In a daze, Charlie goes to his empty home, having severe flashbacks of his Aunt Helen and her death. He calls his sister, where he blames himself for the death of his Aunt Helen. His sister (Nina Dobrev) believes he is suicidal and has a friend call the police. Charlie is in the kitchen staring at a large knife, then blacks out as the police are seen bursting through the door. Charlie then wakes up in hospital. The doctor tells his parents that he was sexually abused by his aunt as a child and that he has repressed the memories because he always loved her.

Charlie undergoes therapy, recovers and returns home where he is visited by Sam and Patrick. The three go to a diner and Sam explains what life at college is like, and how she's also found "The Tunnel Song" Charlie was searching for. The three of them revisit the same tunnel, where this time Charlie stands in the back of the truck as they drive through.

Silver Linings Playbook directed by David O. Russell (eng. st fr..)

(WIKI) Silver Linings Playbook is an American romantic comedy-drama film directed by David O. Russell from a screenplay by Russell, adapted from the novel of the same name by Matthew Quick. The film stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, with Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker, Anupam Kher and Julia Stiles in supporting roles.

Silver Linings Playbook premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2012 and was released in the United States on November 16, 2012.[5] The film opened to major critical success and earned numerous accolades. It received eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Russell, in addition to achieving the rare feat of being nominated in all four acting categories, the first time since Reds in 1981, and also being nominated for the Big Five, the first time since Million Dollar Baby in 2004; four Golden Globe Award nominations, with Lawrence winning Best Actress; three BAFTA nominations; four Screen Actors Guild nominations; and five Independent Spirit Award nominations.

Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper), who has bipolar disorder, is released from a mental health facility into the care of his parents after eight months of treatment. He learns that his wife, Nikki (Brea Bee), has moved away and his father, Pat Sr. (Robert De Niro), is out of work and resorting to bookmaking to earn money to start a restaurant. Pat is determined to get his life back on track and reconcile with Nikki, who obtained a restraining order against him after the violent episode that sent him away.

While talking to his court-mandated therapist Dr. Patel (Anupam Kher), Pat explains again why he was hospitalized. Coming home early from his high school teaching job, he found Nikki in their shower, having sex with another teacher, as Pat and Nikki's wedding song, Stevie Wonder's "My Cherie Amour," played on their stereo. Enraged, he nearly beat the man to death. Despite this, Pat doesn't believe he needs medication to manage his condition.

At dinner with his friend Ronnie, he meets Ronnie's sister-in-law, Tiffany Maxwell (Jennifer Lawrence), a young widow and recovering sex addict who also just lost her job. Pat and Tiffany develop an odd friendship through their shared neuroses and he sees an opportunity to communicate with Nikki through her. Tiffany offers to deliver a letter to Nikki, if in return he will be her partner in an upcoming dance competition. He reluctantly agrees and the two begin a rigorous practice regimen over the following weeks. Pat believes the competition will be a good way to show Nikki he has changed and become a better man. Tiffany gives Pat a typed reply from Nikki, in which she cautiously hints there may be a chance for a reconciliation between them.

Things go well for Pat until his father asks him to attend an Eagles game he has bet virtually all of his money on, as a "good-luck charm". Pat skips practice with Tiffany to attend the game, but is dragged into a fight with thugs attacking his psychiatrist and brother, and is hauled away by police. The Eagles lose the game and Pat Sr. is furious. Tiffany arrives, berates Pat, and argues in detail that the way she "reads the signs," Pat Sr. was luckier when Pat was practicing with her. Pat Sr., now convinced of this, makes a parlay with his gambling friend that if the Eagles win their game against Dallas, and if Pat and Tiffany score at least a 5 out of 10 in their dance competition, he will win back all the money he lost on the first bet. Pat is reluctant to participate in the dance contest under those conditions and re-reads Nikki's letter. After noticing that the phrase Tiffany had said earlier, "read the signs", recurs in the letter supposedly written by Nikki, he realizes that Nikki's letter had been forged by Tiffany.

Pat, Tiffany and everyone else arrive at the competition on the night of the football game. Tiffany is horrified to discover that Nikki is in the audience. Tiffany goes to the bar and has two vodkas. Pat spots her and manages to coax her onto the dance floor and they perform their routine. As they dance, the Eagles win their game and at the conclusion of their set, they score exactly 5 points—Pat and Tiffany are elated.

Amid cheers from his family and confused looks from the crowd, Pat approaches Nikki and speaks quietly into her ear. Tiffany storms off. Pat leaves Nikki behind after only a short conversation, intent on finding Tiffany. He chases after her and tells her he knows she forged Nikki's letter. He confesses he has loved her from the moment he met her but has taken a long time to realize it, and they kiss. They become a couple and Pat Sr. opens a restaurant with the money he has won.

However, once he has an affair with Tom’s ex-lover, American actress Nola Rice, he realises that his new, luxurious lifestyle may be threatened.

Altered States directed by Ken Russell

(WIKI) Altered States is a 1980 American science fiction-horror film adaptation of a novel by the same name by playwright and screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky. It was the only novel that Chayefsky ever wrote, as well as his final film. Both the novel and the film are based on John C. Lilly's sensory deprivation research conducted in isolation tanks under the influence of psychoactive drugs like ketamine and LSD.

The film was directed by Ken Russell and featured William Hurt in his screen debut. It also featured Blair Brown (as Emily Jessup), Charles Haid and Bob Balaban. It additionally featured the film debut of Drew Barrymore. The film score was composed by classical composer John Corigliano (with Christopher Keene conducting) and was nominated for an Academy Award. The film also received an Oscar nomination for Sound, losing to The Empire Strikes Back.

Edward Jessup (William Hurt) is a university professor of abnormal psychology who, while studying schizophrenia, begins to think that "our other states of consciousness are as real as our waking states."[2] Jessup begins experimenting with sensory-deprivation using a flotation tank, and he travels to Mexico to participate in what is apparently an Ayahuasca Ceremony, although his guide states that the Indigenous tribe they are meeting works with Amanita muscaria which they are collecting for next year's ceremonies. An indigenous elder was seen with Banisteriopsis caapi root in his hand prior to cutting Jessup's hand, adding the ingredient of blood. Immediately after consumption he experiences bizarre, intense imagery. The professor then returns to the U.S. with a tincture and begins taking it orally before each session in the flotation tank where he experiences a series of increasingly drastic psychological and physical transformations.

Edward's mind experiments cause him to experience actual, physical biological devolution. At one stage he emerges from the isolation tank as a feral and curiously small-statured, light-skinned Primitive Man. In a subsequent experiment he is regressed into a mostly amorphous mass of conscious, primordial matter. It is only the physical intervention of his wife Emily which brings him back from this latter, shocking transformation in which he seems poised on the brink of becoming a non-physical form of proto-consciousness and possibly disappearing from our version of reality altogether.

The experiments worsen, as Professor Jessup experiences episodes of involuntary spontaneous temporary partial devolution. This occurs outside of the isolation tank and without the intake of additional doses of the hallucinogenic tincture. His early reaction is more one of fascination than concern, but as his priorities gradually change due to Emily's determination to keep from losing him, he finally begins to act like someone who values his humanity.

Fiddler on the Roof directed by Norman Jewison (eng. st port.)

(WIKI) Fiddler on the Roof is the 1971 film adaptation of the 1964 Broadway musical of the same name. It was directed by Norman Jewison. The film won three Academy Awards, including one for arranger-conductor John Williams. It was nominated for several more, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Topol as Tevye, and Best Supporting Actor for Leonard Frey, who played Motel Kamzoil the Tailor (both had originally acted in the musical; Topol as Tevye in the London production and Frey in a minor part as Mendel, the rabbi's son). The decision to cast Topol, instead of Zero Mostel, as Tevye was a somewhat controversial one, as the role had originated with Mostel and he had made it famous.

Principal photography was done at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. Most of the exterior shots were done in Yugoslavia, in what was then the Socialist Republic of Croatia: in Mala Gorica, Lekenik, and Zagreb. Isaac Stern provided the violin solos.

The film follows the plot of the stage play very closely, retaining nearly all of the play's dialogue and even adding a new scene showing Perchik being arrested, although it omits the songs Now I Have Everything and The Rumor (I Just Heard). It takes place in the Jewish village of Anatevka, within the Pale of Settlement in westernmost Tsarist Russia in 1905 and centers on the character of Tevye, a poor milkman, and his daughters' marriages. As Tevye says in the introductory narration, the Jews have relied upon their traditions to maintain the stability of their way of life for centuries; but as times change, that stability is threatened on the small scale by Tevye's daughters' wishes to marry men not chosen in the traditional way by the matchmaker, and on the large scale by pogroms and revolution in Russia. Lyrical Portions of Tevye's Dream (Tailor Motel Kemzoil), were omitted to avoid repetition or anything that was considered obvious. Also, in the song Tradition Reb Mordocha the beggar is mute, making wordless noises, omitting the dialogue between the beggar and Lazer Wolf, and the dialogue of Yente attempting to match Avram's son, with a blind daughter, was omitted. In the song Tradition, the dialogue between the two men, arguing about the "Horse and Mule" business was changed instead to a "Horse that was 6 years old, when it was really 12 years old", with Tevye whispering to one of the men that it was really "12 years old", thus starting the heated argument again.

A new song intended to be sung by Perchik was recorded, however, it was omitted from the final print. When the film was re-released in 1979, several minutes were omitted from the film, including the songs Far from the Home I Love and Anatevka.

The film centers on the family of Tevye (Topol), a Jewish family living in the town of Anatevka, in Tsarist Russia, in 1905. Anatevka is broken into two sections: a small Orthodox Jewish section; and a larger Orthodox Christian section. Tevye notes that, "We don't bother them, and so far, they don't bother us." Throughout the film, Tevye breaks the fourth wall by talking at times, directly to the audience or to the heavens (to God), for the audience's benefit. Much of the story is also told in musical form.

Tevye is very poor, despite working hard, like most Jews in Anatevka, also having many children. He and his wife, Golde (Norma Crane), have five daughters and cannot afford to give them dowries. According to their tradition, they have to rely on the village matchmaker, Yente (Molly Picon), to find them husbands. Life in the shtetl of Anatevka is very hard and Tevye speaks not only of the difficulties of being poor but also of the Jewish community's constant fear of harassment from their non-Jewish neighbors.

Act 1
The film opens with Tevye explaining to the audience that what keeps the Jews of Anatevka going is the balance they achieve through following their ancient traditions. He also explains that the lot of the Jews in Russia is as precarious as a fiddler on a roof: trying to scratch out a pleasant tune, while not breaking their necks. The fiddler (Tutte Lemkow) appears throughout the film as a metaphoric reminder of the Jews' ever-present fears and danger, and also as a symbol of the traditions Tevye is trying to hold onto as his world changes around him. While in town, Tevye meets Perchik (Michael Glaser), a student with modern political ideas. Tevye invites Perchik to stay with him and his family, in exchange for Perchik tutoring his daughters.

Through Yente, Tevye arranges a marriage for his oldest daughter, Tzeitel (Rosalind Harris), to Lazar Wolf (Paul Mann), a wealthy butcher. However, Tzeitel is in love with her childhood sweetheart, Motel (pronounced "mottle") Kamzoil (Leonard Frey) the tailor, and begs her father not to make her marry the much older butcher. Initially angry because he has already made an "agreement" with Wolf, Tevye realizes that Tzeitel loves Motel and caves to his daughter's demands ("But on the other hand..."). To get Tzeitel and Tevye out of the agreement with Lazar, Tevye claims to have a nightmare, which he repeats to Golde. In the nightmare, he says that Golde's deceased Grandmother Tzeitel (Patience Collier) told him that Tzeitel is supposed to marry Motel, as it was decided in heaven. Also in the nightmare, Lazar Wolf's late wife, Fruma-Sarah (Ruth Madoc), warns Tevye that if Tzeitel marries Lazar, she will kill Tzeitel after three weeks of marriage. Golde concludes that the dream was a message to be followed from their ancestors, and Tzeitel and Motel arrange to be married.

Meanwhile, after one of Perchik's lessons with Bielke and Shprintze (the youngest of Tevye's daughters), Tevye's second daughter, Hodel (Michèle Marsh) mocks Perchik's interpretation of the story of Leah he told her sisters. He, in turn, criticizes her for hanging on to the old traditions of her religion and tells her that the world is changing. To illustrate this, he dances with her, because the opposite sexes dancing together is considered forbidden to Orthodox Jews. The two are shown to be falling in love, and Perchik tells Hodel that they just changed an old tradition.

Later, at Tzeitel and Motel's wedding, an argument breaks out over whether a girl should be able to choose her own husband. Perchik addresses the crowd and says that, since they love each other, it should be left for the couple to decide and creates further controversy by asking Hodel to dance with him. The two begin to dance, and gradually, the crowd warms to the idea — with Tevye and Golde joining, then Motel and Tzeitel. The wedding then proceeds with great joy. Suddenly, the military presence in the town and the constable arrive and begin a pogrom, attacking the Jews and their property.

Act 2
A few months later, as Perchik prepares to leave Anatevka to work for the revolution, he proposes to Hodel and she accepts. When they tell Tevye, he is furious that they have decided to marry without his permission, and with Perchik leaving Anatevka, but, again, he relents because they love each other. This time, Tevye tells Golde the truth—and as a side effect, is prompted to re-evaluate their own arranged marriage and relationship. Weeks later, when Perchik is arrested in Kiev and is exiled to Siberia, Hodel decides to join him there. She promises Tevye that she and Perchik will be married under a canopy there.

Not too long afterwards, Tzeitel and Motel become parents, and Motel finally buys the sewing machine for which he has long scrimped and saved. By now they are becoming, in their own right, respected members of the community, and a close, almost father-son relationship is developing between Motel and Tevye — who, not so long ago, had scorned Motel as a nobody.

Meanwhile, Tevye's third daughter, Chava (Neva Small), has fallen in love with a young Russian — and Orthodox Christian — man, Fyedka (Raymond Lovelock). She eventually works up the courage to ask Tevye to allow her to marry him. Horrified, Tevye forbids her to see him again, but they elope and are married in a Russian Orthodox church. In a soliloquy reminiscent of those spoken by Tevye concerning his other daughters but with a radically different conclusion, Tevye concludes that he cannot accept Chava marrying a non-Jew, in effect abandoning the Jewish faith, and he disowns her.

Finally, the Jews of Anatevka are notified that they have to leave the village or be forced out by the government; they have three days. Tevye, his family and friends begin packing up to leave, heading for various parts of America and other places. Chava and her husband, Fyedka, come to Tevye's house and tell her family that they are leaving too — unable to stay in a place that would force innocent people out. Tevye shows signs of forgiving Chava for marrying outside her faith by telling Tzeitel to tell them, "God be with them," pleasing his wife and daughters, who also tell them where they will be living in New York, America.

Just before the closing credits, Tevye spots the fiddler and motions to him to come along, symbolizing that even though he must leave his town, his traditions will always be with him. The film ends with the fiddler following Tevye down the road, playing the "Tradition" theme.

BBC: The Romantics - Eternity directed by Sam Hobkinson

After the revolutions of the late 18th century, people had to define who they were without regard to the sanctions of religion or the Church.

The Romantics would delve into the uncharted depths of the unconscious to find the keys to their identity: they would emerge with new ways of thinking and of leading their lives.

John Keats would forge poetry of genius from a life of tragedy. His work is a unique statement of human fragility. Keats died from tuberculosis, the archetype of the artist as bohemian outsider.

Lord Byron's personal life and political ideals became the subject of scandal in his own lifetime: his self-mythologizing swagger and satirical genius ensured his place in history. Lord Byron created the figure of the self-legislating individual - a man arrogant enough to live by his own rules.

Shelley was an atheist and an exponent of free love - a man consumed by the search for experience and understanding. The search ended on 8th July 1822, when Shelley drowned off the coast of Italy. His body was cremated, but the heart emerged from the flames - a symbol of religious power for an age without religion.

西条祭り Saijo Matsuri 2009 directed by Brad Kremer

Saijo Matsuri is a festival held every year in October in Saijo, Japan. It is truly one of the most exciting, energetic experiences I have ever witnessed. I have been to the festival about 5 times and have always wanted to capture the energy and mood of the event. But I never had a way of getting "in" it the way I wanted and to have the quality that I was seeking that could showcase it in a way that comes close to actually being there.

This year was different. For the first time, with the 5D Mark II, it was possible to get right up close and personal to the event and have it be amazingly crisp 1080p quality. I do not think a film like this would have been possible anytime before with any other camera. Especially considering that it was done solo. One person, with one camera. This is one of the many reasons that I am so hooked on the 5D Mark II right now. The ability to get into tight places, amazing low light capabilities and great HD quality.

A little background about the festival:
Saijo Matsuri is a three day event celebrating the fall harvest. They carry 135 of these 700kg(1500lbs) Danjiri all over town and parade them in a very enthusiastic fashion. And when I say "all over town" I mean ALL OVER TOWN. They will all be in one spot for 4-5 hours and then carry it to the next 10-20km away to the next spot and continue the fun. And they do this, almost non-stop, day and night for three days.

They lift these Danjiri up over their heads and present them to the Kami(God). Sometimes when they get a good bounce going the Danjiri will actually lift away from their grip several centimeters in the air and hopefully they catch them again. And then there are 7 larger Mikoshi that come from a neighboring town, Niihama, to join in the festivities. These larger ones weigh a tremendous 2.5 tons.

This film focuses on the second day, Oct. 17th. It starts at 1am, goes to three locations and ends around 8pm.

I suggest watching with good speakers or headphones to get the full effect of being immersed into this amazing event. Enjoy!

La minute nécessaire de Monsieur Cyclopède: "Apprenons à faire décoller une Alsacienne" réalisé par Jean-Louis Fournier

Il se joue des sujets, qu'ils soient sacrés, comme dans son «Rentabilisons la colère de Dieu», ou bien tabous avec son «fauteuil pour sourds et mal-entendants».

BBC: Electric Dreams - 1980s directed by Stuart Elliot

A family and their home are stripped of all their modern technology to live a life of decades past.

The family must live through the digital wilderness of the 1980s at a rate of a year per day, starting in 1980. They have their very own technical support team who source and supply them with the vintage technology that would have been available to British households during the decade, including iconic technology such as the Walkman, Game and Watch and the CD player.

For a modern family it is a decade of challenges. In 1980 they attempt to cook a roast dinner in a microwave oven, as consumers of the time were encouraged to do. They are faced with a bewildering choice of home computers in 1982 and the arduous task of finding a rental shop that still supplies films on video cassette for their newly-arrived VHS player.

Dad takes a spin in the most famous technological flop of the decade, the Sinclair C5, but the family do experience an 80s success story when New Wave icons Ultravox pay a surprise visit to demonstrate the synthesiser technology which soundtracked the era.

Les escapades de Petitrenaud: Antony Cointre, "cuisinier ambulant" réalisé par Pascal Gonzalez

Nous partons à Rennes, à la rencontre d’Antony Cointre, "cuisinier ambulant", comme il aime se définir. A bord de sa voiture, il parcourt les routes de France et de Navarre pour cuisiner. Pour vos repas à domicile, fêtes d’anniversaire ou de mariage, vous pouvez faire appel à ce sympathique cuisinier.

A cette heure, il donne un cours de cuisine. Deux plats fort simples à réaliser, des Saint-Jacques avec fondue de poireaux et un tartare de mulet au citron, échalotes, huîtres et huile d’olive. Comment lever les filets, la technique pour ouvrir les coquilles Saint-Jacques et surtout le plaisir de cuisiner, de goûter... les cours se déroulent toujours dans la bonne humeur avec ce "fou de la fourchette".

Notre escapade se poursuit chez Olivier Cochard, caviste. Il nous fait découvrir quelques bons vins naturels. Avec lui, nous évoquons le festival gourmand de Rennes, qui se déroulera en octobre prochain. C’est un rendez-vous incontournable de la gastronomie du Pays de Rennes.

Nous suivons Antony sous les halles de Rennes, où il a l’habitude de se servir. La viande chez Yannick Bocandé. Il faut avouer que Yannick fait partie des plus grands bouchers de France, avec son père, il fait partie de ceux qui se déplacent pour choisir les bêtes, il connait les éleveurs et il suffit d’un coup d’œil sur son étal pour être conquis. Les côtes de bœuf, les joues de porc, les rognons... le choix est vaste. Antony suit toujours les conseils de Yannick, aujourd’hui il opte pour des côtes de veau qu’il nous préparera pour le casse-croûte.

A la fromagerie Bordier, Dany nous explique comment "taper le beurre" afin d’évacuer l’eau. Elle modèle ses morceaux de beurre salé en fonction de la demande du client. Ce produit est exceptionnel. Bernard Cozic, le boulanger, nous conte l’histoire de ses pains, seigle, Lodève... voici un boulanger qui sait faire revivre les traditions des bons pains de campagne.

Notre ballade se termine sur le stand de Paul Renault. Cet éleveur de volailles est un véritable passionné. Il fait partie de ces éleveurs qui défendent les races de volailles anciennes et ont permis de conserver et remettre au goût du jour des races telles le coucou de Rennes. Il est le garant d’un savoir faire et d’une qualité de produits exceptionnels. Sur son étal, les coucous de Rennes, cou-nu, pintades, canes mi-sauvages… sont des volailles bien grasses et goûteuses.

Sur le stand, le chef Loïc Pasco du restaurant L’Appart de Loïc, a aménagé un "coin cuisine" où le pot-au-feu de cailles aux petits légumes finit de cuire, Antony en profite pour rôtir les côtes de veau. Rosées à l’intérieur, caramélisées à l’extérieur, servies avec des pommes de terre ratte sautées et des palourdes... hum le bonheur!

Milan 2008: Richard Hutten, Layers directed by DesignGuide TV

Layers is Richard Hutten’s studio exhibit presented at the Milan 2008 furniture fair. Simply said, it’s all about layers of meaning and what we read in it. The fun of making the objects was equally important and some of the works certainly have a rough look to them. Interestingly is the concepts behind the works and how the material & meaning shapes the furniture.

Future by Design directed by William Gazecki (eng. st fr, it, sp, ger, ru, etc.)

Future by Design is a documentary film by Academy Award® nominated filmmaker William Gazecki, sharing the life and far-reaching vision of Jacque Fresco, a modern day Da Vinci. Peer to Einstein and Buckminster Fuller, Jacque is a self-taught futurist who describes himself most often as a multi disciplinarian or “generalist” -- a student of many inter-related fields. He is a prolific inventor, having spent his entire life (he is now 90 years old) conceiving of and devising inventions on various scales which entail the use of innovative technology.

The film explores Fresco’s world of the future, where scientific method, not politics, rules world operations, and all human activities and efforts are directed towards achieving dynamic equilibrium between man and nature.

Future by Design is a visually and intellectually engaging exploration of one man’s vision of a future where war is outdated, there is no shortage of any necessary resource, and our focus as a species is sustainability. But far from presenting a vision of Utopia, this documentary demonstrates a “possible future” -- with real and viable alternatives to our current paradigm of militarism and commercialism.

Jacque Fresco is an outspoken and immediately likable character who’s radical and sometimes irreverent ideas are sure to draw both praise and controversy.
Si nous voulons vraiment en finir avec les problèmes internationaux et sociaux persistants, à la fin nous devons déclarer la Terre et toutes ses ressources l'héritage commun de tout le peuple du monde.

La Terre a des ressources copieuses et abondantes. Notre pratique de rationner par le contrôle monétaire n'est plus pertinente et est contre-productive à notre survie. Nous avons aujourd'hui accès à des technologies hautement développées. Toutefois notre système social et économique ne va de pair avec nos capacités technologiques qui pourraient facilement créer un monde d'abondance pour tous. Ceci pourrait être réalisé par l'infusion d'une civilisation globale basée sur les ressources.

Dite simplement, une économie basée sur les ressources utilise les ressources plutôt que l'argent. Elle fournit une méthode équitable de distribution, de la façon la plus humaine et la plus efficace, pour tout le peuple du monde. C'est un système dans lequel tous les biens et tous les services sont disponibles sans l'utilisation de l'argent, du crédit, du troc, ni d'aucune autre forme de dette et de servitude.

Le film montre la possibilité d'un tel monde d'abondance sans argent même si la majeure partie en est consacrée aux inventions technologiques de l'inventeur Jacque Fresco, considéré par beaucoup comme un Léonard De Vinci des temps modernes.

Comme Einstein et Buckminster Fuller, Jacque Fresco est un autodidacte futuriste qui se décrit le plus souvent comme un «généraliste» ou multi-discipline - en étudiant de nombreux domaines liés entre eux. Il est un inventeur prolifique, ayant passé toute sa vie (il est maintenant âgé de 90 ans) à concevoir et élaborer des inventions à diverses échelles qui impliquent l'utilisation de technologies innovantes. Comme un futuriste, Jacque n'est pas seulement un conceptualiste et un théoricien, mais il est aussi un ingénieur et un designer.

How to Build an Igloo / Comment construire votre iglou by Douglas Wilkinson, 1949, 10 min 32 s

How to Build an Igloo

This classic short film shows how to make an igloo using only snow and a knife. Two Inuit men in Canada’s Far North choose the site, cut and place snow blocks and create an entrance--a shelter completed in one-and-a-half hours. The commentary explains that the interior warmth and the wind outside cement the snow blocks firmly together. As the short winter day darkens, the two builders move their caribou sleeping robes and extra skins indoors, confident of spending a snug night in the midst of the Arctic cold!
Comment construire votre iglou

Court métrage documentaire sur la construction des igloos. Il ne faut pas plus d'une heure et demie aux Inuits pour construire leurs « maisons de neige ». Cette architecture n'en obéit pas moins à des règles précises quant au choix du site, à la taille et à l'assemblage des blocs de neige et à la ventilation.

Duende y misterio del flamenco réalisé par Edgar Neville (v.o)

En 1951 Edgar Neville, écrivain espagnol et grand ami de Jean Cocteau, décide de gagner l’Andalousie pour y tourner ce qui deviendra le plus beau documentaire fiction de flamenco de l’histoire du cinéma : Duende y misterio del flamenco.

Ce journal de voyage se déroule au coeur d’un des plus poignants paysages du monde : coteaux brûlés par le soleil de Jerez, village légendaire de Ronda (où vécut Rilke et lieu mythique de la tauromachie), rives langoureuses du Guadalquivir, ce fleuve-roi qui conçut dans ses courants, tour à tour tumultueux et paisibles, l’âme du flamenco.

Le flamenco, comme le jazz, est né de la rébellion et de la rage de vivre. Il étendit son empire, telle une traînée de poudre, de Séville à Grenade, de Cadix à Cordoue, noms aux senteurs de miel et d’alcool qui nous entraînent dans un rêve charnel jusqu’aux portes de l’Orient. La magie de cette oeuvre tient à son rythme, à cette impression de lenteur et de dérive bercée par le cante jondo, à cette matière unique de mêler la sensualité des paysages, le grain de la terre à la beauté prenante du corps des danseuses, des danseurs qui dessinent les arabesques, les passes d’un mystère où se nouent la jouissance et la mort.

Coupant court à tout effet de dramatisation, ce film nous met en rapport direct avec le réel : c’est une oeuvre de la veine du Louisiana Story de Flaherty et du Tabou de Murnau. Films cultes où le réalisme se nourrissait au feu du sacré. Certaines des fulgurances de ce poème visuel demeurent à tout jamais inoubliables : Antonio à Ronda, Rosario Escudero, Pilar Lopez, Manolo Vargas et tant d’autres… pour l’éternité.

Forty-five episodes were made over four series. The Python phenomenon developed from the television series into something larger in scope and impact, spawning touring stage shows, films, numerous albums, several books and a stage musical as well as launching the members to individual stardom.

Du côté de chez les Maeght: Calder, Miro, Prévert réalisé par Jean Michel Meurice

Du côté de chez les Maeght - 03/07/1973 - 26min13s

Rencontre avec trois artistes, un sculpteur Alexander Calder, un peintre Joan Miro et un poète Jacques Prévert. On suit le premier dans son atelier de Touraine où il crée mobiles et stabiles et dans la présentation de son cirque (insert). On découvre le second, Joan Miro dans une imprimerie réalisant l'affiche d'une exposition (insert). Quant à Jacques Prévert, Aimé Maeght nous fait écouter sa voix disant des extraits de poèmes sur Miro et Calder "Romancero Miro" et "Fêtes". Aimé Maeght, tout en feuilletant les livres de lithographies de Calder et Miro illustrant des poèmes de Prévert, nous parlent de ces trois artistes. Marguerite Maeght se souvient, particulièrement, de l'exposition consacrée à Joan Miro. Des films de Aimé Maeght nous montrent Alexander Calder dansant au cours d'une soirée, ou dans le jardin de la Fondation avec Miro et Maeght, devant un mobile ou s'amusant avec des chapeaux.

Bauhaus: The Face of the 20th Century directed by Frank Whitford

This stunning program looks at the development of the Bauhaus and at the key figures involved in it—including the founder Walter Gropius, his successor Mies van der Rohe, László Moholy-Nagy, and Josef Albers. The program also sets the history of the Bauhaus in the context of the political unrest and economic chaos of the Weimar Republic in Germany. The program features numerous experts including Christopher Frayling of the Royal College of Art, architectural historian Charles Jencks, and Dr. Peter Hahn, Director of the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin. Former students discuss their time at the Bauhaus, and the eminent architect Philip Johnson tells how it influenced his work. The program contains rare archival footage of the Bauhaus at Dessau and looks at the architecture of Chicago, much influenced by Mies van der Rohe, who emigrated there after the Bauhaus was shut by the Nazis in 1933.
