“Venice is not just a stage set. It is also a city with a resident population, which has productive activities, transportation and services. But how does the “Venice system” work? How do the tides in the lagoon behave?”
A really informative, fascinating shoert documentary.
“This is one of my favourite indoor places I’ve ever filmed. A big old wool factory in the middle of nowhere. Just wanted to keep this edit very simple and real. Just pure skateboarding, sound and a very nice looking location.”
“Each morning, under cover of darkness, Mahmoud M’seddi makes a special delivery to a distinguished Parisian address. As the 2018 winner of an elite competition to determine the city’s best baguette, he has the honor of baking fresh bread for President Emmanuel Macron.”
I make a lot of bread, and I approve this message.
Presented by British Museum curator Gareth Brereton.
“The battle of Til Tuba reliefs are among some of the great masterpieces of ancient Assyrian art. The movement and details are truly stunning. That said, the scenes actually being depicted are anything but easy on the eye.”
A really excellent description of how these pieces should be viewed in order to appreciate the history they depict. I was especially blown away by Brereton’s discussion of the sequential nature of the imagery. This is well produced and interesting.
“In this episode of ‘Open Door,’ Dominic West takes us on a tour of Glin Castle, the Irish ancestral home of his wife Catherine FitzGerald’s family. The castle maintains its various period aesthetics, but with all the accoutrement of modern life. From the 10,000 year old Irish elk skull and antlers to the resident spirits and ghosts, Dominic and Catherine show us everything.”
I had never heard of “Open Door” before but I’ll be seeking more of these out. Delightful presentation.
