"Kon-Tiki" was the name of a wooden raft used by six Scandinavian scientists, led by Thor Heyerdahl, to make a 101-day journey from South America to the Polynesian Islands. The purpose of the expedition was to prove Heyerdal's theory that the Polynesian Islands were populated from the east- specifically Peru- rather than from the west (Asia) as had been the theory for hundreds of years. Heyerdahl made a study of the winds and tides in the Pacific, and by simulating conditions as closely as possible to those he theorized the Peruvians encountered, set out on the voyage.

30 Min. | Dokumentation
3,2/5 (bei 14 Stimmen)

Short documentary ordered by the magazine "Présence Africaine". From the question "Why is the african in the Human museum while Greek or Egyptian art are in Le Louvre?", the two directors expose and criticise the lack of consideration for African art.

10 Min. | Dokumentation
3,8/5 (bei 14 Stimmen)

This short documentary, shot in the glass factories of Leerdam and Schiedam, demonstrates how glass blowers do their work. But thanks to the superbly edited ballet of working hands and the sequence of mechanical motions of the engines, is it especially a cinematic tour de force. That the industry can’t do without man’s involvement is shown in the scene where we hear the voice of Haanstra himself counting the bottles on the conveyor belt, until one bottle breaks….

The Artist and the City(1956)

26 Min. | Dokumentation
3,6/5 (bei 6 Stimmen)

The painter António Cruz wanders around the city of Porto painting what he sees: old and modern buildings, people arriving and leaving work in the factories, children playing. The impressionist realism of Cruz’s drawings dissolves into Oliveira’s vision of Porto, which at the same time portrays the painter and his work.

The Mystery of Picasso(1956)

3,8/5 (bei 14 Stimmen)

Using a specially designed transparent 'canvas' to provide an unobstructed view, Picasso creates as the camera rolls. He begins with simple works that take shape after only a single brush stroke. He then progresses to more complex paintings, in which he repeatedly adds and removes elements, transforming the entire scene at will, until at last the work is complete.

Regie: Henri-Georges Clouzot - Schauspieler: Pablo Picasso, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Claude Renoir

La Villa Santo-Sospir(1952)

36 Min. | Dokumentation
3,6/5 (bei 6 Stimmen)

Cocteau takes the viewer on a tour of a friend's villa on the French coast (a major location used in Testament of Orpheus). The house itself is heavily decorated, mostly by Cocteau (and a bit by Picasso), and we are given an extensive tour of the artwork. Cocteau also shows us several dozen paintings as well. Most cover mythological themes, of course. He also proudly shows paintings by Edouard Dermithe and Jean Marais and plays around his own home in Villefranche.

Regie: Jean Cocteau - Schauspieler: Francine Weisweiller

Alles Gedächtnis der Welt(1956)

21 Min. | Dokumentation
3,3/5 (bei 13 Stimmen)

Dokumentarfilm über die Bibliotheque National de France, der in ausgeklügelten, langen Kamerafahrten die überwältigende Menge des dort gesammelten Wissens präsentiert, das Tag für Tag anwächst - unabhängig davon ob es sich um ein schlichtes Tageblatt oder ein Werk der gehobenen Literatur handelt - und auch den aufwändigen und enorm wichtigen Prozess der Katalogisierung betrachtet.

Regie: Alain Resnais - Schauspieler: Agnès Varda, Benigno Cacérès, François-Régis Bastide, Jacques Dumesnil, Joseph Rovan, Lucia Bosé, ...

3,2/5 (bei 19 Stimmen)

The subject of the film was the Hauka movement. The Hauka movement consisted of mimicry and dancing to become possessed by French Colonial administrators. The participants performed the same elaborate military ceremonies of their colonial occupiers, but in more of a trance than true recreation.

Regie: Jean Rouch

3,5/5 (bei 1 Stimme)

Part of the "True-Life Adventure Series"; Disney filmmakers take their cameras to Florida, not to document the swamps that would become Walt Disney World, but to capture the lives of creatures in the everglades. Focusing primarily on alligators, we also see the behavior of animals such as snakebirds, raccoons, and even otters who like to "play" with the alligators.

Regie: James Algar - Schauspieler: Winston Hibler

2,9/5 (bei 9 Stimmen)

Alain Resnais & Robert Hessen use the famous Picasso mural "Guernica" in combination with newspaper headlines in an anti-war cry against the Spanish Civil War.

The Olympic Elk(1952)

27 Min. | Dokumentation
4,1/5 (bei 2 Stimmen)

Part of the "True-Life Adventure Series"; The subject of this two-reel are the elk of Washington state's Olympic Peninsula. We see these deer learning to walk, climbing downhill in a herd, and braving local bears. Those, plus some colorful arctic flowers, are the nice bits. We also see the elk engaging in duels (something amusingly observed and "imitated" by marmots), athletic fights with deadlocks said to often end in death by starvation to both participants. If that brutish behavior isn't enough to turn you off, then wait until you see how the polygamous bull males gather up wives and do battle with another (with wives as a wager) before unmelodically announcing the end of their bachelorhood.

Mirror of Holland(1950)

9 Min. | Dokumentation
3,1/5 (bei 9 Stimmen)

In this short film Bert Haanstra gives his vision - from the water – of a tranquil Holland. During filming he held the camera upside down and afterwards put the images ‘up right’ again in the film. By doing this, we see the ‘usual’ waterfront, but transformed by the rippling of the water. In this way Mirror of Holland became a modern looking experimental film. However this did not devalue the Dutch sentiment regarding waterfronts that are so trusted to so many.

London to Brighton in Four Minutes(1952)

4 Min. | Dokumentation
3,1/5 (bei 7 Stimmen)

London to Brighton in 4 minutes BBC interlude. From the days when TV was all live and programming was hectic. Often when one program finished, the next one was not ready yet, and the gap had to be filled. So the BBC developed a number of interludes to fill these gaps, this being the most famous one.
