Rock Hudson plays a New Orleans newspaperman who develops an unprofessional fascination with carnival fliers Robert Stack and Dorothy Malone in Douglas Sirk’s drama, based on a story by William Faulkner and shot in sweeping CinemaScope black-and-white.
Emiko Omori’s poetic documentary brings to first light the courageous acts of protest and even rebellion that marked the Japanese internment during World War II.
This quietly provocative consideration of the mechanized sublime follows photographer Edward Burtynsky as he travels through China and Bangladesh recording large-scale industrial incursions into the landscape. Peter Mettler served as cinematographer and creative collaborator.
