    Released 1999
    Somewhere in a subtropical country white visitors crowd around dark-skinned plantation workers emptying their harvest baskets. They look curious, as if wanting to test the quality of the tea leaves. Everywhere tourists take out their cameras — whether in front of large animals in the wild or camel riders, whether in the face of decorated human bodies or daily work routines. Now and again they look into the camera themselves. For later, for when they will proudly show their “exotic” finds at home. This posing contains a model of western travels and picture making which is over a century old. The fascinated gaze on the foreigners fixes them in pre-formed frames. Lisl Ponger follows the trail of that gaze by taking amateur found footage material and linking it together in new ways. She summons up atmospheric background sounds and adds a series of voices. With a subtle distance to the visual foreground, those people who are pictured in the west as much more homogenous than they are have the word — in the diverse languages of the “other”. They tell, untranslated, of their experiences with various forms of colonialism — whether as subjects in their own countries or as the expelled and transformed “foreigner”. Lisl Ponger strings the shots together on a thread, a red one — both in the chromatic and symbolic sense. The sound helps these pictures from the continents of the southern hemisphere to resonate with narrative character. The voices are not allowed to domainate the images, but déjà vu takes a risk by letting the multiplicity of languages speak for themselves. It is a film which does not impart security but poses questions. –Christa Blümlingermoreless

    Released 2018
    Movie is a full length motion picture about the adventures two aspiring filmmakers have when trying to produce an independent film. Writer/director duo Alex Walker (Brian Gant) and Evan Campo (Paul Jones) have a simple goal in mind, to get their movie about warring drug gangs in New York City made. It sounds simple enough, and with the help of producer Cindy (Mary Culmone) they gather the cast and crew together and prepare for filming. However, the one thing that's not simple about this feature is figuring out a way to pay for it. In a story of life imitating art, Alex and Evan start to peddle drugs to make ends meet on the production, and when that falls just short, Cindy (also an erotic masseuse) takes on a few house calls. But the hijinks really begin with the filming itself, as the lead actor is certifiably nuts, the supporting actor's agent decides to rewrite the script, and Walker seems more intent on humiliating Campo on set. Frank Sluszka directs this wacky and ridiculous romp that pokes good, clean, fun at the sometimes outrageous world of independent films.moreless

    Released 1989
    For All Mankind is a 1989 historical documentary covering the Apollo space missions from the 1962 inception of the program to the Moon landing in 1969. Beginning with President Kennedy's announcement of the American wish to land on the moon first, the film primarily uses the recordings of the astronauts and mission control engineers and scientists from the original NASA footage to give a uniquely personal and close up perspective on this landmark moment. The film covers the astronauts from the moment they don their spacesuits, to seeing the Earth and moon from capsule window and splashing down back on Earth. The film also captures the more ordinary moments of space travel, with the travelers requesting the latest sports scores as well as joking around on the team. There is also the genuine awe of the experience of stepping on the Moon's surface. Director Al Reinert uses the music of Brian Eno to create a mood of wonder for this thorough and fascinating look at the people who explored outer space "for all mankind."moreless

    Released 2007
    Shaanxi is the best place where you can seek the heritages from Tang and Han dynasties. As the political, cultural and economic center of the Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang dynasties, Shaanxi was the cradle of the mainstream Chinese culture. The Memorial Mausoleum of Legendary Emperor Huangdi, the Temple of Legendary God of Farming are mediums through which generations of Chinese over the last millennia have identified their ancestry with the forefathers in the remote antiquity. The Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses of the Qin Dynasty have witnessed the experience of China as a great country. Nowadays, in the struggle against the sand, the Shaanxi people are marching along the road they choose and the revival of this ancient land will certainly come. Located on the ancient Silk Road that conducted exchanges between China and the Central Asian countries and those farther west, Gansu Province covers a vast area, boasts natural beauty, boundless Gobi desert, primitive loess plateau and crystal glacier.. Its rich cultural heritage, represented by Dunhuang grottoes, still appeals to people. In the process of the western development, the glory and prosperity of the ancient Silk-Road era will be revived in Gansu. .moreless

    UDAIPUR Set along an artificial lake and surrounded by picturesque mountains, Udaipur is one of the most beautiful cities in the Indian province of Rajasthan. Part of the Palace Of Udaipur is still inhabited by the present head of the Mewar and other areas within it have been transformed into a luxurious hotel. In recent years innumerable gazebos, balconies and decorations have made the elegant almost playful eastern side of the palace into a popular backdrop for numerous films. Located beneath the grand palace and surrounded by thick walls there is a further popular tourist attraction in Udaipur, the Jagdish Temple. At first sight this Vishnu sanctuary appears to be a fortress, a fact that has undoubtedly contributed to its survival. As one of the city's few Hindu temples, the Jagdish Temple survived the troops of Muslim aggressor, Mughal Aurangzeb, as he most likely did not recognize it as a temple. But history and drama aside, as the sun sets beneath the gentle hills of the Avalli Mountains it is easy to become hypnotised by the amazing beauty of Udaipur. Global Treasures - History's Most Protected Monuments - Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live today, and what we pass on to future generations. our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. Places as unique and diverse as the wilds of East Africa's Serengeti, the Pyramids of Egypt, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Baroque cathedrals of Latin America make up our world's heritage.

    The film opens up with an image of Central Oregon's Mount Bachelor and the Central Oregon Cascades, which is the fictional setting for Mount St. Helens itself. On March 20, 1980 an earthquake of 4.1 on the Richter Scale strikes Mount St. Helens, signalling the first signs of volcanic activity in 123 years.During the first earthquake, a flight of quail becomes disoriented and smashes into the windshield of an Aerospatiale SA341G Gazelle helicopter being used for logging operations. Pilot Otis Kaylor lands the helicopter, only to be accused of nearly killing a group of loggers.Shortly afterward, David Jackson (a loose play on the name of real-life vulcanologist David Johnston), a United States Geological Survey scientist, is sent to investigate the activity. Upon arriving in the small town of Cougar (a real-life town located 12 miles south of Mount St. Helens), he quickly befriends a single mother named Linda Steele (played Cassie Yates), who is a waitress at a fictional restaurant named Whittaker's Inn. While there, he stirs up concern with the owner, Clyde Whittaker (Albert Salmi), and a group of farmers and loggers.Art Carney, in one of his finest roles, stars as the 83-year-old Mount St. Helens Lodge owner Harry Randall Truman. Throughout the film, Carney delivers a stellar depiction of Truman and his defiant attitude toward the idea of leaving his home.Later in the film, as the volcanic activity increases, so does the attraction between Jackson and Steele, and the two eventually fall in love. In their last scene in the movie, he packs Linda and her son off to safety and stays behind for the work that needed to be done on Johnston Ridge, presumably on the day before the eruption. Later that night, he pays a last visit to Harry Truman.On May 18, he hikes to a ridgetop on the north face of Mount St. Helens to monitor some scientific equipment, then the mountain explodes.

    Released 2011
    The Libyan area of the Sahara fascinates with its varied landscapes of lakes set amid desert dunes, ancient towns built of mud, camps with straw-covered circular huts, prehistoric rock paintings and amazing multi-shaped stone formations. For centuries, Ghadames, an oasis town. has been the junction of several caravan routes and thanks to the Mare Spring it has benefitted from a good supply of water. The houses were small but beautifully decorated and red-framed mirrors assist in the illumination of the main room. The uppermost floors were for women only and they could spend their day unveiled. Ancient Garma was once the capital of the Garamante Realm, one of the most powerful Berber realms in North Africa and the Sahara. Greek and Roman historians wrote much of the mighty tribe that lived in desert which at the height of its power controlled neighbouring tribes and among its arsenal included horse drawn chariots. The discovery of the Akakus rock paintings in 1850 was made by German explorer and scientist, Heinrich Barth. Protected by huge rocks and hidden in a tangled labyrinth of canyons, the rock paintings remained undiscovered for thousands of years. Nestling among the huge sand dunes of the Libyan Sahara is one of the most striking natural wonders on Earth, the Mandara Lakes. Some of the 11 lakes have dried out, such as that of the Mandara while others, like the Am Alma, are at their most impressive. Each lake is surrounded by a green belt in which reed and date palms create what is tantamount to being a biblical ambience. The Sahara, although scorching hot and untamed by Man, has shared with us its remarkable and memorable natural wonders!moreless

    Brazil, the world's fifth largest in size with the sixth largest population, is considerably larger than all of Europe combined. If ever a country showed contradictions, it must be said it is truest of Brazil, from the elegant magnificence of Rio de Janeiro to the dark, forested backwaters of the Amazon. On the southern border with Argentina is Iguassu Falls. It is the world's fourth largest waterfall by volume and perhaps the most spectacular. Brazil's coastline staggers the imagination; 4,600 miles of varying, rugged coast, harbors, islands and amazing white sand beaches. But if ever an area defied superlatives, it is the Amazon River Basin, draining an area larger that the contiguous United States. The promise is here to see; from Iguassu Falls, in the south to the Amazon in the north. Between are the people, the land, and a way of life.

    Released 2003
    The American Hobo is a 2003 documentary that explores the image of the wandering worker, the long figure hopping trains that has been a recurring image in American imagination and experience. Director Bobb Hopkins examines the history of the hobo, a term that first appeared in the early 19th century and referred to migratory workers who moved around the country. During the Depression era, the image of the down-and-out hobos catching a free train ride or huddling around a fire was omnipresent in films, news reels and art. Beyond the background, the film also speaks to famous personalities about their own hobo experiences. Merle Haggard, legend of Country Music, recounts his own adventures on the open road. Long before he won the Pulitzer Prize, author James A. Michener ("Tales of the South Pacific") spent some lean years working his way on back roads. Some folks chose the hobo life as a way to embrace a free-spirited, independent existence. Actor Ernest Borgnine hosts this historical and first-person look at the hobo life.moreless

    The Champagne Safari is a 1995 documentary film about millionaire Charles E. Bedaux. Bedaux held an expedition in 1934 which he named after himself, the Bedaux Expedition. He and his caravan of more than 100 people set out to travel from Edmonton, Alberta to Telegraph Creek, British Columbia. The excursion was over 1,500 miles and a good part of it had no roads or trails. Bedaux brought Hollywood film director Floyd Crosby and a large movie crew along with him with the hope he would later make a movie about the adventure. The expedition was never finished due to rough terrain and weather, but they did spend 4 months traveling the mountains. They ended the expedition at Hudson's Hope where they held an extravagant party to celebrate their success with the trails they did complete. Bedaux's footage of the adventure was lost, but years later it was found in a Paris basement. This documentary, directed by George Ungar, was made using the found footage.moreless
