Liliana Cavani is an Italian film director and screenwriter. She belongs to a generation of Italian filmmakers from Emilia-Romagna that came into prominence in the 1970s, including Bernardo Bertolucci, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Marco Bellocchio. Cavani became internationally known after the success of her 1974 feature film Il portiere di notte, her films have historical concerns. In addition to feature films and documentaries, she has directed opera. Cavani was born near Modena in the regione of Emilia-Romagna. Cavani's father, an architect from Mantua, belonged to a conservative bourgeois family of landowners. "My father was an architect interested in urban development. He took me to museums, he had worked in urban planning in Baghdad in 1956. My mother was strong capable, sweet", Cavani explained in an interview, her mother took her to the movies every Sunday from an early age. On her mother's side, Cavani came from a working-class family of militant antifascists, her maternal grandfather, a syndicalist, introduced her to the works of Engels and Bakunin.
She graduated in literature and philology at Bologna University in 1960, writing a dissertation on the fifteenth-century poet and nobleman Marsilio Pio. She had intended to become an archeologist, a profession she soon abandoned in order to pursue her passion for the moving image, she attended Rome's renowned "Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia", inaugurated by Benito Mussolini prior to World War II. She studied documentary filmmaking and obtained her diploma with the short films Incontro notturno, about the friendship between two men, a white man and a Senegalese, L'evento about a group of tourists who killed for fun. While attending film school, Cavani won a competition at RAI, Italy's national television network, took a job there as a director of historical documentaries in 1961, her professional career thus began making documentaries for RAI between 1961 and 1965, which included Storia del III Reich, which chronicles the rise of the Nazi regime. It was the first historical investigation of German totalitarianism to appear on television.
Other documentaries are: an investigation into the Soviet leader's years. In this period she made Il giorno della pace, a four-hour documentary on immigration south-to-north within Italy. Cavani made her first full-length feature film in 1966 with Francis of Assisi. Made for television and aired in two parts, it was influenced by the style of Rossellini and the atmosphere typical of the films of Pasolini. Made in a period of political unrest, it was to become a kind of manifesto of dissenting Catholicism. Starring Lou Castel, it portrays Francis of Assisi as a depressed protester and an avid, albeit mad, supporter of armed brotherhood; the ideal defender of the 1968 student movement. The film was a great success, but triggered many negative reactions, it was called " heretical and offensive for the faith of the Italian people". It was the first of many polemical reaction to Cavani's work, her next film, focuses on the seventeenth-century conflict between science and religion. Galileo Galilei's belief that the truth should be proved by experimental methods, makes him clash with the dogmas of the church and he falls into the hands of the Inquisition.
The film made for television, was banned by the Italian censor, that considered it anticlerical and was never aired, but it found a distributor and it was released in theaters. The Cannibals, Cavani's first film to rely on an independent production company, uses the myth of Antigone to present the contemporary political state of Italy. Inspired by Sophocles' Antigone, the film, set in the industrial city of Milan, recounts the struggle of a girl against the authorities that prevents burying the bodies of rebels killed by the police, to serve as a warning to its citizens; the brave girl, the only rebel in a city crushed by dictatorship, is aided by a mysterious man who speaks an unknown language. The example of this two youngsters is soon followed by others; this work was not well received by the public, so Cavani returned to television with the series of documentaries I bambini e noi. Cavani's subsequent film L'ospite, furthered her interest in psychological themes; the plot centers on the relationship between a writer and a woman, a former mental asylum patient struggling to fit back in society.
The film, starring Lucia Bosè, was made on a shoestring budget. It was shown at the Venice film festival out of competition; the director undertook a venture into Oriental mystical experiences with Milarepa. A story inspired in a classic text of Tibetan literature, Milarepa moves back and forth in time between the story of the title character, a mystic of the eleventh century and a young westerner whose travails are not different, both being torn between the search for knowledge and a quest for power; the film was praised by Pier Paolo Pasolini who called it a "truly beautiful film". Cavani was not well known beyond Italy until she made the 1974 film The Night Porter, which remains the film for which she is best remembered; the plot, set in Vienna in 1957, follows a former concentration camp victim and tortured by an SS camp guard. Fifteen years she revives the pattern of abuse after encountering the man b
Damnation Alley (film)
Damnation Alley is a 1977 post-apocalyptic film directed by Jack Smight, loosely based on the novel of the same name by Roger Zelazny. The original music score was composed by Jerry Goldsmith and the notable cinematography was by Harry Stradling Jr. First Lieutenant Jake Tanner shares ICBM silo duty at an American air force missile base in the Californian desert with Major Eugene "Sam" Denton, requesting not to work with him. On their way to duty, Denton talks to an aspiring artist; when the United States detects incoming nuclear missiles from the Soviet Union and Denton launch part of the retaliatory strike. The United States is hit hard. Two years the Earth has been tilted off its axis by the nuclear detonations of World War III. Tanner has resigned his commission and has been scouting Barstow while Keegan, who has left the Air Force, has been painting as an artist in one of the base's out-buildings. Mutated giant scorpions menace the area. An airman falls asleep in a bunk and drops a lit cigarette onto a pile of Playboy magazines, which causes the entire base to catch fire and explode, killing most of its inhabitants including the base commander, General Lander.
Keegan and Tanner are unscathed, as are Denton and Lieutenant Tom Perry, who were in an underground garage bunker. Denton has been considering going to Albany, New York to find the source of the lone radio transmission, aired weekly since the war, he and the remaining others set out in two Air Force "Landmasters," giant 12-wheeled armored personnel carriers capable of climbing 60-degree inclines and operating in water. They must cross "Damnation Alley," considered "the path of least resistance" between intense radiation areas thus named by Denton. Along their journey one of the Landmasters becomes disabled in a storm and they encounter mutated "flesh stripping cockroaches" in the ruins of Salt Lake City which eat Keegan alive. Denton and Tanner pick up two survivors: a woman in Las Vegas, a teenage boy, discovered in an abandoned house, they fight off a band of crazed gun-toting mountain men they encounter in the ruins of a gas station. Denton uses a rocket launcher to destroy the gas station.
As they continue their journey, the Landmaster develops a problem with its drivetrain and they head to Detroit. Denton comments that it was "designed to use semi-trucks in particular. In Detroit they enter a large wrecking yard in search of the needed parts. A large storm comes upon the group and they take shelter in their vehicle just as a tsunami washes them away. After the storm passes, they are adrift in a large body of water and it appears that the Earth has returned to its normal axis as the sky is clear. Using the Landmaster's amphibious capability, they reach land; as they are making repairs, they hear a radio broadcast of an attempt to reach survivors. After Denton makes radio contact and Billy set out on Tanner's dirt bike to locate the source of the broadcast. In the final scene, they reach a intact suburb of Albany and are greeted by its inhabitants. Jan-Michael Vincent as 1st Lt. Jake Tanner George Peppard as Major Eugene "Sam" Denton Dominique Sanda as Janice Paul Winfield as Keegan Jackie Earle Haley as Billy Kip Niven as Lt. Tom Perry Mark L. Taylor as Haskins Robert Donner as Man / Guard Murray Hamilton as General Landers Roger Zelazny's original story of Damnation Alley was changed in the final script.
Zelazny was quite pleased with the first script by Lukas Heller and expected it to be the shooting script. However, the studio had Alan Sharp write a different version that left out many of the elements of Zelazny's book. Zelazny did not realize this, he disliked the movie, but assertions that he requested to have his name removed from the credits are unfounded, since he did not know there was a problem until after the movie had been released. Budgeted at US $17 million, Damnation Alley was helmed by veteran director Jack Smight, who had scored two consecutive box office hits in the previous two years. Filming began in July 1976 in the Imperial Valley of Southern California, where a missile base set was constructed, as well as locations in Meteor Crater, Salt Lake City and the Mojave Desert in California; the lake scenes were filmed at Flathead Lake in Kalispell, Montana Production was rife with problems — the devastated landscapes and giant mutated insects proved to be nearly impossible to create, despite the large budget.
For example, a sequence involving giant 8-foot-long scorpions attacking a motorcycle was first attempted using full-scale scorpion props, but they did not work and the resulting footage was unacceptable. The solution was to use actual scorpions composited onto live action footage using the blue screen process in post-production. Another action sequence with giant cockroaches used a combination of live Madagascar hissing cockroaches and large numbers of rubber bugs, which looked unconvincing onscreen as the strings pulling mats covered in fake insects were plainly visible; the centerpiece of the film, the 12-wheeled, seven-ton "Landmaster", performed much better than expected. The Landmaster was so convincing, in fact, that Fox demanded that more shots of the Landmaster appear in the film to make up for shortcomings; the decision was made to add "

The name "Paris" is derived from the Celtic Parisii tribe; the city's name is not related to the Paris of Greek mythology. Paris is referred to as the City of Light, both because of its leading role during the Age of Enlightenment and more because Paris was one of the first large European cities to use gas street lighting on a grand scale on its boulevards and monuments.
Gas lights were installed on the Place du Carousel, Rue de Rivoli and Place Vendome in 1829. By 1857, the Grand boulevards were lit. By the 1860s, the boulevards and streets of Paris were illuminated by 56,000 gas lamps. Since the late 19th century, Paris has been known as Panam in French slang. Inhabitants are known in French as Parisiens, they are pejoratively called Parigots. The Parisii, a sub-tribe of the Celtic Senones, inhabited the Paris area from around the middle of the 3rd century BC. One of the area's major north–south trade routes crossed the Seine on the île de la Cité; the Parisii minted their own coins for that purpose. The Romans began their settlement on Paris' Left Bank; the Roman town was called Lutetia. It became a prosperous city with a forum, temples, an amphitheatre. By the end of the Western Roman Empire, the town was known as Parisius, a Latin name that would become Paris in French. Christianity was introduced in the middle of the 3rd century AD by Saint Denis, the first Bishop of Paris: according to legend, when he refused to renounce his faith before the Roman occupiers, he was beheaded on the hill which became known as Mons Martyrum "Montmartre", from where he walked headless to the north of the city.
Clovis the Frank, the first king of the Merovingian dynasty, made the city his capital from 508. As the Frankish domination of Gaul began, there was a gradual immigration by the Franks to Paris and the Parisian Francien dialects were born. Fortification of the Île-de-la-Citie failed to avert sacking by Vikings in 845, but Paris' strategic importance—with its bridges prevent

Argentina the Argentine Republic, is a country located in the southern half of South America. Sharing the bulk of the Southern Cone with Chile to the west, the country is bordered by Bolivia and Paraguay to the north, Brazil to the northeast and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Drake Passage to the south. With a mainland area of 2,780,400 km2, Argentina is the eighth-largest country in the world, the fourth largest in the Americas, the largest Spanish-speaking nation; the sovereign state is subdivided into twenty-three provinces and one autonomous city, Buenos Aires, the federal capital of the nation as decided by Congress. The provinces and the capital exist under a federal system. Argentina claims sovereignty over part of Antarctica, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands; the earliest recorded human presence in modern-day Argentina dates back to the Paleolithic period. The Inca Empire expanded to the northwest of the country in Pre-Columbian times; the country has its roots in Spanish colonization of the region during the 16th century.
Argentina rose as the successor state of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, a Spanish overseas viceroyalty founded in 1776. The declaration and fight for independence was followed by an extended civil war that lasted until 1861, culminating in the country's reorganization as a federation of provinces with Buenos Aires as its capital city; the country thereafter enjoyed relative peace and stability, with several waves of European immigration radically reshaping its cultural and demographic outlook. The almost-unparalleled increase in prosperity led to Argentina becoming the seventh wealthiest nation in the world by the early 20th century. Following the Great Depression in the 1930s, Argentina descended into political instability and economic decline that pushed it back into underdevelopment, though it remained among the fifteen richest countries for several decades. Following the death of President Juan Perón in 1974, his widow, Isabel Martínez de Perón, ascended to the presidency, she was overthrown in 1976 by a U.
S.-backed coup which installed a right-wing military dictatorship. The military government persecuted and murdered numerous political critics and leftists in the Dirty War, a period of state terrorism that lasted until the election of Raúl Alfonsín as President in 1983. Several of the junta's leaders were convicted of their crimes and sentenced to imprisonment. Argentina is a prominent regional power in the Southern Cone and Latin America, retains its historic status as a middle power in international affairs. Argentina has the second largest economy in South America, the third-largest in Latin America, membership in the G-15 and G-20 major economies, it is a founding member of the United Nations, World Bank, World Trade Organization, Union of South American Nations, Community of Latin American and Caribbean States and the Organization of Ibero-American States. Despite its history of economic instability, it ranks second highest in the Human Development Index in Latin America; the description of the country by the word Argentina has been found on a Venetian map in 1536.
In English the name "Argentina" comes from the Spanish language, however the naming itself is not Spanish, but Italian. Argentina means in Italian " of silver, silver coloured" borrowed from the Old French adjective argentine " of silver" > "silver coloured" mentioned in the 12th century. The French word argentine is the feminine form of argentin and derives from argent "silver" with the suffix -in; the Italian naming "Argentina" for the country implies Terra Argentina "land of silver" or Costa Argentina "coast of silver". In Italian, the adjective or the proper noun is used in an autonomous way as a substantive and replaces it and it is said l'Argentina; the name Argentina was first given by the Venetian and Genoese navigators, such as Giovanni Caboto. In Spanish and Portuguese, the words for "silver" are plata and prata and " of silver" is said plateado and prateado. Argentina was first associated with the silver mountains legend, widespread among the first European explorers of the La Plata Basin.
The first written use of the name in Spanish can be traced to La Argentina, a 1602 poem by Martín del Barco Centenera describing the region. Although "Argentina" was in common usage by the 18th century, the country was formally named "Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata" by the Spanish Empire, "United Provinces of the Río de la Plata" after independence; the 1826 constitution included the first use of the name "Argentine Republic" in legal documents. The name "Argentine Confederation" was commonly used and was formalized in the Argentine Constitution of 1853. In 1860 a presidential decree settled the country's name as "Argentine Republic", that year's constitutional amendment ruled all the names since 1810 as valid. In the English language the country was traditionally called "the Argentine", mimicking the typical Spanish usage la Argentina and resulting from a mistaken shortening of the fuller name'Argentine Republic'.'The Argentine' fell out of fashion during the mid-to-late 20th century, now the country is referred to as "Argentina".
In the Spanish language "Argentina" is feminine, taking the feminine article "La" as the i
