For something a little different, take a look at Achieving the Unachievable from Cine Fete.
It's one that I find interesting because it deals with the science of art.

ACHIEVING THE UNACHIEVABLE
In 1956, Dutch artist Maurits C. Escher challenged the laws of perspective with Print Gallery and found himself trapped behind an impossible barrier...
This uncompleted masterpiece quickly became the most puzzling enigma of Modern Art, for both artists and scientist.
Half a century later, mathematician Hendrik Lenstra took everyone by surprise by drawing a fantastic bridge between the intuition of the artist and his own, finally shattering the Infinity Barrier! Get front row seats for this visually spectacular fusion of Art and Science.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
