Halas & Batchelor Heritage Collection
10,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Affectionately referred to as 'the British Disney', Halas & Batchelor's highly influential and internationally acclaimed body of work encompassed children's series, public education films, adverts and more. This collection of short films will both remind and reinforce how stunningly innovative, whimsically humorous and subversively entertaining their four-decade body of work actually was. From an uncannily prophetic, Oscar nominated satire on technological overkill and automated gridlock (Automania 2000) to the adventures of of a paper-cutout dog and his friends (Snip and Snap), the films present wide-ranging content in a gloriously inventive fashion. Drawn from an archive that includes numerous international award winners, these animated gems have been newly transferred in High Definition from the original film elements; all showcase the beguiling humour, questing yet playful spirituality and sheer technical brilliance that characterised the studio's output, serving as both an introduction to and celebration of a unique body of work that is ripe for re-evaluation. Short Films: The Magic Canvas (1948) Flying Free (1980) The Owl and the Pussycat (1952) The Figurehead (1953) The History of the Cinema (1957) Foo Foo: The Stowaway (1960) Haba Tales: The Cultured Ape (1960) Snip And Snap: Top Dogs (1960) Hamilton the Musical Elephant (1961) Automania 2000 (1963) Dodo - The Kid From Outer Space: The Kidnapped Kid (1964) Tales From Hoffnung: The Symphony Orchestra (1964) Flow Diagram (1966) The Question (1967) Children and Cars (1971) Butterfly Ball (1974) Autobahn (1979) Dilemma (1981) Bonus Features: John Halas Remembered Ode to Joy: A Life in Animation The Cultured Ape: 1980 Colourised Version Clapperboard: The Halas & Batchelor Story An Animated Utopia: the Life and Achievement of John Halas Image Gallery

Remember Us: My Journey from the Shtetl Through...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Remember Us is a look back at the lost world of the shtetl: a wise Zayde offering prophetic and profound words to his grandson, the rich experience of Shabbos, and the treasure of a loving family. All this is torn apart with the arrival of the Holocaust, beginning a crucible fraught with twists and turns so unpredictable and surprising that they defy any attempt to find reason within them. From work camps to the partisans of the Nowogrudek forests, from the Mauthausen concentration camp to life as a displaced person in Italy, and from fighting the Egyptian army in a tiny Israeli kibbutz in 1948 to starting a new life in a new world in New York, this book encompasses the mythical "hero's journey" in very real historical events. Through the eyes of 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Martin Small, we learn that these priceless memories that are too painful to remember are also too painful to forget. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Altschuler. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/008602/bk_adbl_008602_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Thomas Merton’s Great Sermons and Reflections, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Published in 1948, The Seven Storey Mountain made Thomas Merton a household name, but Merton’s spiritual autobiography is only the tip of the iceberg of his complex thought and contemplative wisdom. The rarely heard sermons and reflective talks in this set attest to the depths of Merton’s brilliance. Recorded by Merton at the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani near the end of his life, they reveal a different side of a multitalented and multifaceted monk whose prophetic vision remains as relevant today as ever.In Thomas Merton’s Great Sermons and Reflections, you’ll witness the evolution of Merton’s thought as he moved away from a narrow, cloistered mindset to an ecumenical and socially engaged outlook. This curated collection spans five years of his life and comprises four talks that showcase the themes close to Merton’s heart: the authentic Christian life, contemporary society, contemplation, Marxism, and the relationship of literature to religion.The first recording contains Merton’s sermon on the Feast of Immaculate Conception, delivered to the monastic community at Gethsemani in 1962. The second talk, “Passion and Prose on the Passion of Christ” (1965) introduces you to another lesser-known part of Merton’s legacy: the literature classes he taught to novice monks. The last two selections contain two complementary talks recorded on Trinity Sunday in 1967: a sermon that Merton preached at the abbey church, followed by his private reflections on the themes in that same sermon. Although different in content, context, and setting, these talks are united by their connection to the liturgy - its sacraments, seasons, and traditions - and their encapsulation of Merton’s kaleidoscopic thought.This set includes an afterword by Thomas Merton biographer Michael W. Higgins.   1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas Merton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/nykm/000174/bk_nykm_000174_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW AND THE ECONOMIST Winner of the Natan Book Award, the National Jewish Book Award, and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award An authoritative and deeply personal narrative history of the State of Israel, by one of the most influential journalists writing about the Middle East today Not since Thomas L. Friedman's groundbreaking From Beirut to Jerusalem has a book captured the essence and the beating heart of the Middle East as keenly and dynamically as My Promised Land. Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures, Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis. Ari Shavit draws on interviews, historical documents, private diaries, and letters, as well as his own family's story, illuminating the pivotal moments of the Zionist century to tell a riveting narrative that is larger than the sum of its parts: both personal and national, both deeply human and of profound historical dimension. We meet Shavit's great-grandfather, a British Zionist who in 1897 visited the Holy Land on a Thomas Cook tour and understood that it was the way of the future for his people; the idealist young farmer who bought land from his Arab neighbor in the 1920s to grow the Jaffa oranges that would create Palestine's booming economy; the visionary youth group leader who, in the 1940s, transformed Masada from the neglected ruins of an extremist sect into a powerful symbol for Zionism; the Palestinian who as a young man in 1948 was driven with his family from his home during the expulsion from Lydda; the immigrant orphans of Europe's Holocaust, who took on menial work and focused on raising their children to become the leaders of the new state; the pragmatic engineer who was instrumental in developing Israel's nuclear program in the 1960s, in the only interview he ever gave; the zealous religious Zionists who started the settler movement in the 1970s; the dot-com entrepreneurs and young men and women behind Tel-Aviv's booming club scene; and today's architects of Israel's foreign policy with Iran, whose nuclear threat looms ominously over the tiny country. As it examines the complexities and contradictions of the Israeli condition, My Promised Land asks difficult but important questions: Why did Israel come to be? How did it come to be? Can Israel survive? Culminating with an analysis of the issues and threats that Israel is currently facing, My Promised Land uses the defining events of the past to shed new light on the present. The result is a landmark portrait of a small, vibrant country living on the edge, whose identity and presence play a crucial role in today's global political landscape. Praise for My Promised Land "This book will sweep you up in its narrative force and not let go of you until it is done. [Shavit's] accomplishment is so unlikely, so total . . . that it makes you believe anything is possible, even, God help us, peace in the Middle East."-Simon Schama, Financial Times "[A] must-read book."-Thomas L. Friedman, The New York Times "Important and powerful . . . the least tendentious book about Israel I have ever read."-Leon Wieseltier, The New York Times Book Review "Spellbinding . . . Shavit's prophetic voice carries lessons that all sides need to hear."-The Economist "One of the most nuanced and challenging books written on Israel in years."-The Wall Street Journal

Strangers in the House: Coming of Age in Occupi...
15,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

'This is not a political book,' Anthony Lewis asserts in his foreword to this revealing memoir of a father-son relationship set against the backdrop of more than thirty years of life under military occupation. 'Yet in a hundred different ways it is political. . . . Shehadeh shatters the stereotype many Americans have of Palestinians.' Three years after his family was driven from the city of Jaffa in 1948, Raja Shehadeh was born in Ramallah. His early childhood was marked by his family's sense of loss and impermanence, vividly evoked by the glittering lights 'on the other side of the hill.' He witnessed the numerous arrests of his father, Aziz, who, in 1967, was the first Palestinian to advocate a peaceful, two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He predicted that if peace were not achieved, what remained of the Palestinian homeland would be taken away bit by bit. Ostracized by his fellow Arabs and disillusioned by the failure of either side to recognize his prophetic vision, Aziz retreated from politics. He was murdered in 1985. The first memoir of its kind by a Palestinian living in the occupied territories, Strangers in the House offers a moving description of daily life for those who have chosen to remain on their land. It is also the family drama of a difficult relationship between an idealistic son and his politically active father, complicated by the arbitrary humiliation of the 'occupier's law.'
