Haiku: In Basho's Footsteps

Loading...
In Sept. 2002, 14 haiku lovers from five different countries (including Visnja McMaster and Judit Vihar) follow in the master's footsteps as they open themselves to the haiku moment at the very places where Basho himself found inspiration. One of the best-known collections of classical haiku is Basho's "Oku no Hosomichi," or Narrow Road to the Deep North, written in 1689 as a record of the poet's travels in northwestern Japan. In this documentary, they retrace Basho's footsteps and discover the sources of his inspiration. All personal perceptions aside, everybody agrees that through the traditional 5-7-5 syllable format, the true beauty of nature comes together in a "haiku moment." The therapeutic value of haiku-writing for traumatized children and adults is also addressed.

Fall of Eagles

Loading...
In the 19th century, the major European powers had gone to great lengths to maintain a balance of power throughout Europe, resulting by 1900 in a complex network of political and military alliances throughout the continent. Beginning in 1815, the Holy Alliance between Prussia, Russia, and Austria formalized what had been a strictly familial support network. The House of Habsburg, the House of Hohenzollern, and the House of Romanov had long intermarried, resulting in an incredibly tangled web of relationships, a number of which led back to Queen Victoria of England.

This mini [...]

Science Is Fiction: 23 Films by Jean Painlevé

Loading...
Long before Jacques Cousteau and Richard Attenborough, a Frenchman named Jean Painlevé made documentaries that captured the natural world in a unique manner. "Science Is Fiction" collects 23 of these short films. Painlevé (1902-89) spent his life straddling the arts and the sciences, studying biology at the Sorbonne, but also hanging out with Man Ray and Luis Buñuel. Long fascinated by marine life, Painlevé helped develop the underwater camera, one of the first handheld cameras, and high-magnification lenses that allowed him to observe creatures like sea urchins, jellyfish, and mollusks in their natural habitats. Though relatively obscure in the United States, Jean Painlevé's films embrace genre, combining documentary, educational film, and avant-garde experimentalism to create a [...]

Bergman Island: Ingmar Bergman on Fårö Island, Cinema and Life

Loading...
Filmed over several weeks, "Bergman Island" is an impressively intimate look at the waning hours of one of cinema's true legends. Granted unprecedented access to the man himself, Marie Nyreröd captures stories from Bergman that cover his entire life to that point. Bergman is remarkably candid, whether he's discussing his abusive father or his last directorial effort, Saraband. Even those not particularly interested in Bergman's cinema will find something interesting in a man who has lived so long, triumphed in as a director in radio, television and on stage, whilst completely mastered the medium of film, leaving a legacy for the ages.
