Wilhelm Buschs Geschichte von Max und Moritz gehört zu den beliebtesten Bilderbüchern der Welt. Busch gilt als der Erfinder eines neuen Mediums, als der geniale Urvater des Comics. Auch seine beißenden Satiren wie ´´Die fromme Helene´´ oder ´´Plisch und Plum´´ finden bis heute ein großes Publikum.Über den einsamen Junggesellen aus Wiedensahl wird bis heute gestritten: War er Menschenfeind oder Menschenkenner?Obwohl sein gewaltiges Oeuvre gut erschlossen ist, fehlte es bisher an einer kritischen Biographie, die den Autor der Bildergeschichten genauso würdigt wie den Zeichner, Maler und Verfasser tiefschwarzer Prosatexte. Die aktuelle Biographie von Eva Weissweiler schließt diese Lücke - und lässt uns den vermeintlichen Spaßmacher aus einer Fülle unbekannter Briefe und Dokumente neu verstehen.Der Sprecher:Bastian Pastewka, Komiker, Schauspieler, Synchronsprecher, 1972 in Bochum geboren, in Bonn aufgewachsen, wurde ab 1996 mit der ´´Sat.1-Wochenshow´´ einem Millionenpublikum bekannt.

Für RTL drehte er die Silent-Comedy ´´Ohne Worte´´ (2003/2004) und die Reiseberichte ´´Pastewka in...´´ (2003-2005). 2005 und 2006 war er mit seiner neuen Comedy-Serie ´´Pastewka´´ bei Sat.1 zu sehen.

In 1959, the year Terry Galloway turned nine, the voices of everyone she loved began to disappear. No one yet knew that an experimental antibiotic given to her mother had wreaked havoc on her fetal nervous system, eventually causing her to go deaf. As a self-proclaimed ´´child freak,´´ she acted out her fury with her boxy hearing aids and Coke-bottle glasses by faking her own drowning at a camp for crippled children. Ever since that first real-life performance, Galloway has used theater, whether onstage or off, to defy and transcend her reality. With disarming candor, she writes about her mental breakdowns, her queer identity, and living in a silent, quirky world populated by unforgettable characters. What could have been a bitter litany of complaint is instead an unexpectedly hilarious and affecting take on life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Hess.

During World War II, the army established 107 evacuation hospitals to care for the wounded and sick in theaters around the world. An evacuation hospital was a forward hospital accepting patients from the battlefield. It was where the wounded first received definitive care. Formed at Camp Breckenridge, the 95th Evac arrived in Casablanca in April 1943, with 7,000 troops, 30 doctors, and 40 nurses. First pitching their tents at Oujda, they moved eastward toward Algeria before making a D-Day landing on the beaches of Salerno, Italy, on September 9, 1939. Shortly thereafter, they entered Naples and then set up shop at Anzio before moving on to become the first American hospital to penetrate Nazi-occupied Europe. After the guns were silent, records show that these doctors and nurses had treated more than 42,000 Americans in almost all the critical battles of the European theater: Salerno, Monetcassino, Anzio, Southern France, the Battle of the Bulge, the Rhineland, and finally, the invasion into Germany.Hospital at War is the story of the 95th Evac Hospital as told by Zachary Friedenberg, a young surgeon at the time, fresh out of his internship. He tells the story of how the men and women of the 95th survived the war. He describes how they solved problems and learned to treat the war-wounded in the extreme heat of North Africa and during the frigid winters of the Rhineland. He tells how they endured shelling and a bombing of the hospital and how they adjusted to the people and the countries in which they worked. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Chappell.

What Is Japanese Cinema? (eBook, ePUB)

What might Godzilla and Kurosawa have in common? What, if anything, links Ozu?s sparse portraits of domestic life and the colorful worlds of anime? In What Is Japanese Cinema? Yomota Inuhiko provides a concise and lively history of Japanese film that shows how cinema tells the story of Japan?s modern age.Discussing popular works alongside auteurist masterpieces, Yomota considers films in light of both Japanese cultural particularities and cinema as a worldwide art form. He covers the history of Japanese film from the silent era to the rise of J-Horror in its historical, technological, and global contexts. Yomota shows how Japanese film has been shaped by traditonal art forms such as kabuki theater as well as foreign influences spanning Hollywood and Italian neorealism. Along the way, he considers the first golden age of Japanese film; colonial filmmaking in Korea, Manchuria, and Taiwan; the impact of World War II and the U.S. occupation; the Japanese film industry?s rise to international prominence during the 1950s and 1960s; and the challenges and technological shifts of recent decades. Alongside a larger thematic discussion of what defines and characterizes Japanese film, Yomota provides insightful readings of canonical directors including Kurosawa, Ozu, Suzuki, and Miyazaki as well as genre movies, documentaries, indie film, and pornography. An incisive and opinionated history, What Is Japanese Cinema? is essential reading for admirers and students of Japan?s contributions to the world of film.

New York Times best-selling author Wally Lamb weaves an evocative, deeply affecting tapestry of one baby boomer´s life - Felix Funicello, introduced in Wishin´ and Hopin´ - and the trio of unforgettable women who have changed it in this radiant homage to the resiliency, strength, and power of women. I´ll Take You There centers on Felix, a film scholar who runs a Monday night movie club in what was once a vaudeville theater. One evening, while setting up a film in the projectionist booth, he´s confronted by the ghost of Lois Weber, a trailblazing motion picture director from Hollywood´s silent film era. Lois invites Felix to revisit - and in some cases relive - scenes from his past as they are projected onto the cinema´s big screen. In these magical movies, the medium of film becomes the lens for Felix to reflect on the women who profoundly impacted his life. There´s his daughter, Aliza, a Gen Y writer for New York Magazine who is trying to align her postmodern feminist beliefs with her lofty career ambitions; his sister, Frances, with whom he once shared a complicated bond of kindness and cruelty; and Verna, a fiery would-be contender for the 1951 Miss Rheingold competition, a beauty contest sponsored by a Brooklyn-based beer manufacturer that became a marketing phenomenon for two decades. At first unnerved by these ethereal apparitions, Felix comes to look forward to his encounters with Lois, who is later joined by the spirits of other celluloid muses. Against the backdrop of a kaleidoscopic convergence of politics and pop culture, family secrets, and Hollywood iconography, Felix gains an enlightened understanding of the pressures and trials of the women closest to him and of the feminine ideals and feminist realities that all women of every era must face. 1.

Film Music: A Very Short Introduction , Hörbuch...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Film music is as old as cinema itself. Years before synchronized sound became the norm, projected moving images were shown to musical accompaniment, whether performed by a lone piano player or a hundred-piece orchestra. Today film music has become its own industry, indispensable to the marketability of movies around the world. Film Music: A Very Short Introduction is a compact, lucid, and thoroughly engaging overview written by one of the leading authorities on the subject. After opening with a fascinating analysis of the music from a key sequence in Quentin Tarantino´s Reservoir Dogs, Kathryn Kalinak introduces listeners not only to important composers and musical styles but also to modern theoretical concepts about how and why film music works. Throughout the book she embraces a global perspective, examining film music in Asia and the Middle East as well as in Europe and the United States. Key collaborations between directors and composers - Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann, Akira Kurosawa and Fumio Hayasaka, Federico Fellini and Nino Rota, to name only a few - come under scrutiny, as do the oft-neglected practices of the silent film era. She also explores differences between original film scores and compilation soundtracks that cull music from preexisting sources. As Kalinak points out, film music can do many things, from establishing mood and setting to clarifying plot points and creating emotions that are only dimly realized in the images. This book illuminates the many ways it accomplishes those tasks and will have its listeners thinking a bit more deeply and critically the next time they sit in a darkened movie theater and music suddenly swells as the action unfolds onscreen. 1.

I came to in the middle of it, like waking inside a horror movie, silent scream and all. Eyes wide open. I was standing at an open window, staring at the dizzying curve of Riverside Drive, five floors below. I´d stopped, somehow, poised, about to jump. Growing up the good girl in an Irish American family full of drinkers and terrible sleepers, Kathleen Frazier was 12 when her seemingly innocent sleepwalking turned dangerous. Over the next few years, she was a popular A+ student by day, the star of her high school musical. At night she both longed for and dreaded sleep. Frazier moved to Manhattan in the 1980s, hoping for a life in the theater but getting a run of sleepwalking performances instead. Efforts to abate her malady with drinking failed miserably. She became promiscuous, looking for nighttime companionship. Could a bed partner save her from flinging herself down a flight of stairs or out an open window? Exhaustion stalked her, and rest and love were seemingly out of reach. This is the journey Frazier illuminates in her intimate memoir. While highlighting her quest to beat her sleep terrors and insomnia, this is ultimately a story of health, hope, and redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen Frazier.
