The spirit moves. Part 1, Jazz dance from the turn of the century to 1950 : a history of Black social dance on film, 1900-1986

The spirit movesLoading Mura Dehn was a Russian-born dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker. Her pioneering work in documenting the various styles of American black social dance is found in "The Spirit Moves," a rare and vital social document. This valuable video archive of the evolution of black dance styles features dancers renowned for their exploits at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem during the 1940s. The dancers also recreate song and dance routines of the 1920s and 30s. The dances of the 40s chronicle the prewar optimism of black Americans, while the pessimism and disaffiliation of postwar be-bop styles illustrate its elimination. Essential for dance and music research, this film documents the vital contribution of African American dance to the Jazz scene, and thus, to America's cultural heritage.

The forgotten space

The forgotten spaceLoading The sea is forgotten until disaster strikes. But perhaps the biggest seagoing disaster is the global supply chain, which - maybe in a more fundamental way than financial speculation - leads the world economy to the abyss. This essayistic, political documentary follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, and those marginalized by the global transport system. We discover the most sophisticated expression of the belief that the maritime economy, and the sea itself, is somehow obsolete.

Tout est permis

Tout est permisLoading "The driving license system with points was set up in France in 1992. It consists in withdrawing a certain number of points from the license (which has twelve or six) depending on the seriousness of the offense, sometimes resulting in the retirement of the permit pure and simple. In such a case, point recovery courses are organized to help offending drivers to recover their license. Coline Serreau has undertaken to film this type of courses in various parts of the French territory, allowing their participants to express themselves, at the same time turning the floor over to different personalities, for or against the system." -- IMDb.
