Xunzhao bulao siji #

Released 9/10/2010

Description: The documentary Searching for Brodsky by Xie Jiakun, made with Liao Jinfeng, a scholar at the National Taiwan University of Arts (where Xie is a lecturer), is the first to present extensive clips from Brodsky’s well-preserved feature-length documentary – the earliest surviving footage of daily Chinese life – and dig a tiny deeper into Brodsky’s past. Typical of early movie pioneers, he was basically a showman and businessman, but one with a genuine passion for his topics and for recording life without exoticism or condescension. (One intertitle even sarcastically noted: “The Chinese are fond of tender young bamboo shoots, while the Americans, as usual, prefer the type of fruits and vegetables that grow in cans.”) He subsequently moved to Japan, where he made the documentary Pretty Japan, which even included material on minorities.

Tiaowu shidai #

Released 9/12/2003

Description: "I'm a cultured woman, travelling about footloose and fancy-free…”So starts a lilting tune from Taiwan's“Dance Age”of the 1920s and 1930s, a paradoxical time when the island's occupation by Japan also brought youth culture and a measure of artistic freedom. Girls smoked cigarettes, love scandals were rife, and risqué Taiwanese pop was born. Embarking on a voyage to visit the surviving singers, composers and record aficionados of the era, this lively historical documentary mixes engaging interviews with catchy songs, haunting period footage, and reenactments of the unrequited romance between the adored chanteuse Chun Chun and her songwriter CHEN Chun-Yu.

That Summer #

Released 9/1/2017

Description: Albert and David Maysles' classic GREY GARDENS immortalized the estate of Edith and Tiny Edie Beale, relatives of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, who lived in alarmingly terrible conditions. But there is more to the story: it was Lee Radziwill and Peter Beard who first brought the Maysles to the Beales, when the two set out to create a movie about Radziwill's childhood. The reels of that first contact were shelved for 45 years. This documentary recovers the lost footage. Anchored in Beard's recollections and artistic vision, we are returned to "that summer" in 1972, a seductive dream globe and collage of radically unconventional constructive personalities—Warhol, Bacon, Jagger, Capote—practicing the art of living amidst oppressive forces of class expectation and prejudice.

Grand Display of Brock's Fireworks at the Crystal Palace Reviews:

IMDb seems to have this movie all over the place. It records Brock's Firework Display at Crystal Palace as 1902 (Warwick Trading Company) and has other Warwick game "Fireworks) as 1905, Fireworks Display at Crystal Palace (1904) and this game (both as Urban, 1904) The Brock's Firework display was indeed originally conceived in 1902 for the Coronation of Edward VII and Queen Alexandria and it is possible that this was filmed by Urban, and also that Urban filmed the Brock's displays few times. Brock's had developed in association with Crystal Palace (1851) (it even used "Crystal Palace" as a brand name) and produced regular displays there known as "Brock's Benefits".There is, however, certainly a very sensational movie that survives of the display at Crystal Palace, filmed probably in September 1905 (the 30th September was the last day of the show). The movie is preserved in the collection of the Museo Nazionale del Cinema of Turin, is accessible on Vimeo, beautifully restored (2011), but dated (wrongly I think) 1904.The movie itself remarkable. It is shot at night and in natural colour (presumably a trial outing for the Smith/Urban Kinemacolor system which was patented in 1906 (hence unlikely to have been shot as early as 1904). As with another trial-films using the system, it seems likely that G. A. Smith was himself behind the camera.But the fireworks are remarkable too (I do not why it is no longer possible for such superb displays to be place on. Too expensive?), a display that contains steamboats, a cock fight, a railway train and fine illuminated portraits of the Lord and Queen.It is a movie that really deserves to be much better known.
