Los ojos de América
di Daiana Rosenfeld, y Aníbal Garisto ; direcció, guión producción, fotografía y montaje, Daiana Rosenfeld y Aníbal "Corcho" Garisto
"América Scarfó was the protagonist of one of the most passionate and controversial love stories in the history of Argentina. When she was fourteen she met Severino Di Giovanni (27) and quickly fell in love with him. Severino was one of the most important figures of Argentine anarchism, a movement that left indelible marks in the country's militancy. The relationship was built on clandestine encounters, furtive meetings and idealistic love letters, and was interrupted when Di Giovanni was shot by a firing squad during the first military dictatorship in 1931. With him, a part of América died as well. The documentary recovers, based on letters, photographic records and recreations, the vision of a young revolutionary who, although she remained anonymous, helped create the foundations of Anarco-Feminism.

La piedra ausente = The absent stone
Fondo para la Producción Cinematográfica de Calidad FOPROCINE México and 5 others presentan ; un documental de Sandra Rozental y Jesse Lerner
[Place of publication not identified] : [publisher not identified], [2013?]
"In 1964, the largest carved stone of the Americas was moved from the town of San Miguel Cuatlinchan in the municipality of Texcoco to the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City in an impressive feat of engineering. The extraction of the monolith, which represents the pre-Hispanic water deity, set off a rebellion in the town and led to the intervention of the army. Today, the enormous stone, now upright, is an urban monument; it has been transformed into one of the principal icons of Mexican national identity. The inhabitants of Coatlinchan insist that the removal of the stone has caused droughts. Representations and replicas of the absent stone appear everywhere in Coatlinchan, where it resonates in the memories of the inhabitants. Using animations, archival materials and contemporary encounters with the protagonists of the transport of the stone, this documentary explores the relevance of the ruins of the past in the present day"--Internet Move Database.

The remote museum's single installation suspends light, air and droplets of underground water in constant play, defining a unique, meditative space. An innovative portrait in which the mysterious artist refuses to appear onscreen, Yuko Nakamura's documentary explores five women's interactions with the dynamic space of "Matrix" in unprecedented access to the site while delving into Naito's body of work, beginning with her projects in Hiroshima. Nakamura's film takes full advantage of the cinematic medium to confront Naito's artworks and the existential themes they evoke.

Tsukiji wonderland = 築地ワンダーランド / 松竹 ; 監督。脚本。編集遠藤尚太郎 ; プロデューサー手島麻衣子
[Tōkyō] : Shōchiku Kabushiki Kaisha, [2016]
Disc 1 (film, English narration with Japanese subtitles and English subtitles where Japanese spoken) - disc 2. Special contents (without subtitles).

Of all the seafaring nations, perhaps none has quite so close a relationship with seafood as Japan. Fish and shellfish forms what is considered the backbone of washoku, or Japanese cuisine. With an almost religious fervor, some of the country's best chefs come to Tokyo's Tsukiji neighborhood to visit the world's largest wholesale fish and seafood market to sample the latest tasty and exotic morsels, plucked from the sea that morning. Known as the "kitchen of Japan," the 80-year-old Tsukiji market offers more than 400 types of seafood, worth a total market price of about 1.5 billion yen, every day. In 2014, soon after it was announced that the cramped market would be moving to a larger site in Tokyo's Toyosu neighborhood, filmmaker Naotaro Endo began shooting to preserve this institution. For an entire year, documentary crews worked their way through the hundreds of overflowing stalls, focusing on the peak seasons for certain kinds of seafood, such as sanma (Pacific saury) in autumn and fugu (blowfish) in winter. Through interviews with vendors, plus commentary from food celebrities such as multi-Michelin-star chefs Jiro Ono and Rene Redzepi, Tsukiji Wonderland is a sumptuous feast for sushi lovers everywhere and a rare glimpse of Japan's ancient legacy before it's altered forever.

"This meditation on cinema's past from Decasia director Bill Morrison pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City was settled in 1896 and became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brough 100,000 prospectors to the area. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned. The now-famous Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Ros collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City : Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation"--Container.
