Jeff -

I recall seeing some footage of devastated German cities in Herzog's Little
Dieter Needs to Fly and in Morris' Fog of War. Fog of War also shows footage
of Japan which, seeing as the instructor's purpose is to hint at the
challenges of rebuilding a leveled city, seems relevant. There are many
other films with footage of Japanese cities; a fact that apparently stems
from a fascination with the nuclear bomb. I haven't seen the film, but Fire
Storm Over Dresden sounds promising. Nova's War from the Air sounds
promising as well but it is, unfortunately, out of print.

With the exception of the last film, these titles are all available from
Facets.

Sincerely,

Ryan Whitehead

Subject: [Videolib] London or Berlin post-bombing

Hello, videolibers. Any suggestions for this faculty request?

>I donít have any specific title, but I would like to show the students
some footage of London or Berlin after WWII. The main idea would be to get a
larger sense of the extent of destruction so that we can discuss the
architectural implications of building at such a scale.

Thank you,

Jeff
