  • Primetime War
    • This film focuses on two cameramen who bring the horror of the Israeli/Arab conflict nightly into homes around the world. Although one is Israeli, working for the Associated Press and the other is Palestinian, working for BBC, they are good friends and colleagues. What is remarkable about this film is that it shows how the media affects the very events it covers.The battles heat up and the rhetoric becomes more vociferous when the video camera rolls. These two friends from opposite sides conduct a continual debate about their job and what they witness.They question the validity of their work and express their moral dilemma concerning the role and responsibility of the media in reporting the events they are paid to cover. For once the cameras are turned onto the news gatherers, whose presence makes the combatants perform for a tv audience.

Let's Open Our World

momondo -- "The DNA Journey." YouTube, uploaded by Let'sOpenOurWorld, 1 June 2016, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyaEQEmt5ls

"It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think. We asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test, and it turns out they have much more in common with other nationalities than they would ever have thought."

"Let’s Open Our World is an invitation to travel across boundaries, embrace our differences and open our world. At momondo we believe that everybody should be able to travel the world, to meet other people, and experience other cultures and religions. Travel opens our minds: when we experience something different, we begin to see things differently."

"The film was shot in Vega, Copenhagen, Denmark, and directed by Jeppe Rønde."
