Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

On Top of Beacon Hill presents a homecoming of art and philosophy in verse. Powered in the tradition of existential thought, the phenomenological composition seeks to transport readers to the fertile and authentic realm of elemental being through a rare blend of Eastern, Western, and indigenous styles. Learn how to express your emotions fearlessly, and with excellent distinction. Make your spiritual ends meet, gloriously, inducing shamanic-trained impeccability from your actions, and appreciating, most intimately, the causal force of eternity, Nietzsche’s “eternal recurrence.” Packaged tightly with semantics, but never shackled by them, the poems explore some classic topical clashes within Eastern and Western thought. But in a word: a simple yet austere program to power, to cognitively fill out the authority of your sensory capacity, indeed, philosophically pioneering the mental charge of emotions—not governing but engaging them—like hound dogs leading the hunt, as we sow raw and timeless seeds On Top of Beacon Hill. Language is Contradiction In time, language seeks negation dialectically, as the right leg seeks the left for movement. In the utilization to articulate ideas, contradictions become apparent, because correspondence is a stack of letters, cogently fashioned from wild thoughts for fermentation of domestication. Language exists now, yet requires structural reflection and afterthought, both of which are peripheral thoughts in Platonic forms of thinking inside immediacy. And that which seems coupled from a distance (here vernacular forms with immediacy) defines via contradistinction. So, language is the nativity of dialectics, since it is acting definition, plus possession: clutching at building materials, some sentimental reflection of yesteryear, and the flux of the thoughts of the morrow ...
