Face Value: The Mask

Loading...
Face value: Rejecting linear narrative storytelling, the director offers an epic of humanity and cultural diversity through a cartography of faces, the reflection of an imaginary Europe, made up of London, Marseilles, Prague, and the Netherlands.; Mask: During the celebrations of the bicentennial of the French Revolution, Johan van der Keuken made a film about the revolutionary ideas of equality, liberty, and fraternity. Rather than focusing on the festivities, he lingers on the crowds in the metro and on the platform. Among them is a homeless member of the poor class who is ignored by his more affluent countrymen. A cutting perspective on the contraditions that permeate French society.

I Love Money: Beauty ; Moment's Silence

Loading...
I [love] money: New York, Geneva, Hong Kong and Amsterdam are major hubs of the world's economy. Great amounts of money circulate there, and whereas poverty is ubiquitous in the streets of New York, Geneva carefully protects its wealth behind impeccable facades. No one is unaffected by the myth of the all-powerful Dollar: the under-privileged struggle to survive talking about their unattainable dream, while businessmen, from the safe distance of their offices, lay down the tenets of the financial philosophy.; Beauty: The dream world of a faschist spy named Beauty who destroys himself by attempting to impose a rigid working order on the world. The recurring themes of van der Keuken's work --- time, violence, the perception of reality -- are explored here with exceptional intensity.; A [...]

The Eye Above the Well; Johan van der Keuken, the Complete Collection Vol. 1, Disc 2: Lucebert: Time and Farewell, the Unanswered Question

Loading...
Eye above the well: Explores India's spiritual and economic condition, moving from the city to the countryside in the region of Kerala, as it focuses on the essence of that civilization. Captured without commentary by a gliding camera are a cacophony of distinctly nonwestern sights and sounds: the bustling city streets, the serene landscapes of the surrounding countryside, a family preparing for dinner, an elderly actor performing his mythological drama, a modest country moneylender traveling from village to village, young girls at their singing lessons.; Lucebert, time and farewell: One of the greatest Dutch poets of the twentieth century, Lucebert was also a major painter who participated in the Cobra movement. This is van der Keuken's acclaimed triptych of three short films on Luc [...]

The Fortis Files [electronic resource]: Belgium's Top Bank Faces the Subprime Debacle

For years Fortis was among the crown jewels of banking in Belgium. But in late September 2008 its success story came to a dramatic end, and the Belgian government had to intervene to keep the bank from going under. How did it come to this? For many outsiders the decline was due to Fortis's ambitious takeover of the Dutch ABN-Amro bank. Many believed the Fortis management had overestimated the capacity of their bank. Others believed the amount of subprime loans was the fatal trigger. This documentary examines how other major banking companies warded off the devastating effects of the American subprime debacle. The stories of foreign bank managers and financial experts make Fortis's failure even more unbelievable.

That Pärt Feeling: The Universe of Arvo Pärt

Loading...
"Paul Hegeman highlights the music of renowned Estonian composer Arvo Pärt while attempting to unveil the mystery around the purportedly reclusive writer of such famed works as “Tabula Rasa,” “Fratres,” “Trivium” and “Für Alina,” all stirringly performed here. But Hegeman, who also shot the film (with Auke Dijkstra), eschews a typical biographical recounting of the 83-year-old maestro's prolific life; we learn little of his past, his process or what makes him tick." -- Los Angeles Times, May 23, 2019.
