True Stories: The Great Chinese Art Revolution – dTV – Xvid

Cover

Dauer: 46:48 | Größe: 379 MB | Sprache: Englisch | Format: Xvid | Uploader: sunspots

The True Stories strand, which showcases the best international feature documentaries, continues with a film exploring how China’s contemporary artists have become the new rock stars of the art world, living a lifestyle more in tune with bohemian New York than the People’s Republic of China. The programme was made by Pia Getty of the American oil billionaire dynasty, who has her own London based television production company. Once considered off-track and exotic, contemporary Chinese art has arguably achieved a peak, selling for millions at auctions across the world. In a time of great change, as China struggles to balance capitalism with communism, a new wave of modern art has found its voice. The film features leading artists discussing their work, including Ai Weiwei: widely regarded as China’s father of conceptual art and one of the designers behind Beijing’s Olympic stadium, The Bird’s Nest; and Zhang Xiaogang – possibly the best known and most collected of his generation.

Garbage Warrior – DVDRip – Xvid

Cover

Dauer: 1:27:40 | Größe: 700 MB | Sprache: Englisch | Format: Xvid | Uploader: sunspots

Garbage Warrior is a feature-length documentary film telling the epic story of maverick US architect Michael Reynolds and his fight to introduce radically sustainable housing. An extraordinary tale of triumph over bureaucracy, Garbage Warrior is above all an intimate portrait of an extraordinary individual and his dream of changing the world. Imagine a home that heats itself, that provides its own water, that grows its own food. Imagine that it needs no expensive technology, that it recycles its own waste, that it has its own power source. And now imagine that it can be built anywhere, by anyone, out of the things society throws away. Thirty years ago, architect Michael Reynolds imagined just such a home – then set out to build it. A visionary in the classic American mode, Reynolds has been fighting ever since to bring his concept to the public. He believes that in an age of ecological instability and impending natural disaster, his buildings can – and will – change the way we live. Shot over three years in the USA, India and Mexico, Garbage Warrior is a feature-length documentary film telling the epic story of maverick architect Michael Reynolds, his crew of renegade house builders from New Mexico, and their fight to introduce radically different ways of living. A snapshot of contemporary geo-politics and an inspirational tale of triumph over bureaucracy, Garbage Warrior is above all an intimate portrait of an extraordinary individual and his dream of changing the world.
