Multimedia Section at the Compañí­a de Jesús Library

So it took us about a week to finally enter the Multimedia zone at the Compañí­a de Jesús Library, as Lessie suggested. Now I would be extremely happy if the film section had the complete works of Woody Allen, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock and Emir Kusturica for starters. Or better yet, I would be in film-heaven if they only had the 1001 movies you must see before you die. Sometimes I wish I was a Slacker.

  • Rudy, I find we have a slacker inside we need to nurture from time to time. Some call this slacker our inner child. Whatever makes your boat float man. Listen, I once worked in a library and believe me, multimedia centers can transform themselves into heaven. I remember we had to shift the collection, reorganize, and check titles, etc. and that is how I started to learn about foreign films. I remember these things that look like DVDs on steroids. I saw some films using those. We had a lot of B&W movies, but there were too many to watch. With a class though, we went to a showing of Nosferatu. At the Goethe Institute. For class credit. 1922 silent film. Very interesting. I think we had live music that accompanied the film. All that suspense. But I digress. I must check out that list of the 1001 movies I (we) must see before I (we) die. 🙂

  • Interesting composition. Slacker- now that’s an interesting film. I prefer Linklater’s later “Waking Life”. Spellbinding.
    How long would it take to watch 1001 movies?

  • Carmen, if I was a librarian I would ask to work at the multimedia center, for sure.

    Rich, I must check out Waking Life. It would take about three years give or take to watch 1001 films.

  • Here at YorkU we have the “Sound and Moving Image Library” (SMIL) which has an interesting collection of (you guessed it) music and motion pictures in different formats. More and more there are more DVDs but the good ol’ VHS tapes are still available. Notable mentions (on VHS) are “El Silencio de Neto” and “Devil’s don’t dream!”, the first one an award winning Guatemalan movie from the 90s and the second one a documentary about Arbenz. I’ve been meaning to watch “Devil’s don’t dream!” but I don’t want to do it alone and I haven’t found someone to watch it with… moreover, is a 4-hour loan so I cannot take it home for a screening with other “compañeros/compañeras” 😉 Unless is during the Summer when the library is closed on the weekends and 4-hour loans made on Friday afternoon are to be returned first thing on Mondays
