Nous débutons notre premier épisode de l'Écologie en Pixels avec The Cove (2009), un éco-documentaire lauréat des Oscars en 2010 🍿 dans la catégorie meilleur documentaire.
Produit par L'Oceanic Preservation Society, il nous emmène au coeur d'une enquête presque irréelle, sur le massacre annuel mais secret, de milliers de dauphins 🐬 dans la baie de Taiji au Japon 🇯🇵. Mélangeant esthétique cinématographique 📽️, musique 🎶 et histoires macabres, le documentaire prend la forme d'un vrai thriller, nous tenant en haleine jusqu'à la fin. Avec une intrigue bien ficelée, les réalisateurs s'attaquent aux conditions de captivités dans les delphinariums ainsi qu'à la pêche intensive. Ils mettent en lumière les aspects socio-économiques à l'origine du fonctionnement défectueux des delphinariums, qui ont initialement pour vocation la protection des cétacés.
The Cove n'est pas un documentaire au ton léger, même si ce ne sont pas les blagues qui manquent ! Après son visionnage vous n'aurez peut-être plus très envie de commander des sushis 🍣. Mais ce qui est sûr, c'est qu'il réveillera probablement chez vous une prise de conscience écologique qui vous empêchera de rester pantois face à ce crime vert.
Pour plus d'informations, et si vous souhaitez agir nous invitons à vous rendre sur le site de l'Oceanic Préservation Society (https://www.opsociety.org/). Nous nous retrouvons le mois prochain pour découvrir un autre film dans l'Écologie en Pixels !
The carapintadas (Painted Face), were dubbed this way because of their use of camouflage paint - They were rightmost military activists who took part in uprising between 1987 and 1990 against the governments of Raúl Alfonsín and afterward Carlos Menem in #Argentina . 🇦🇷

Look at those big Pots!! Part 3: Preparation of the meal
Houndreds of volunteers are coming daily to the golden temple, to help in the kitchen to cook over 100k meals a day. This is part of Seva. Seva describes the act of selfless service. Its meaning is said to be embodied by the root words saha, meaning "with that," and eva, meaning "too," which together mean "together with." Selfless service is an important concept in Sikhism. The act of seva leads to collective benefit and gain, although it is performed without regard for the outcome of the individual. 😊 -> Our Documentary movie is out soon 😊
Did we tell you about our first ever community virtual documentary screening?
The Story of Plastic by @storyofstuff is a detailed look into the environmental damage and human rights abuses that occur throughout the lifecycle of plastic, throughout the world. The plastic waste generated globally far outdoes the utility value of plastic. The documentary dwells on what companies, countries and people can collectively do to solve the problem.
In this context, we as a team at Quest joined some children who had opted to watch the 95-minute documentary. The script was riveting to say the least and opened up much awareness among all to examine the negative aspects of Plastic that we took for granted all these years.
The screening was followed by a discussion with a special guest - Sripad Sridhar of Evanescence Studios, an environmental film maker, who had watched the documentary as well, to add his inputs to the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and its impact on the health of our planet. He also shared his knowledge about work that is happening locally, the film making process of choosing to weave a narrative that builds awareness or inspires action and his own experience as a filmmaker.
More virtual group documentary screenings coming up! Stay tuned :) #documentary#watchandlearn#enviromental#inspiringthemyoung#awareness#action#consciouscitizens#virtualscreening#filmmaking
W is for Wales🏴 (well, at least it should be. It’s the only one and I did live there for two years.) But instead, in these troubled times, I’m choosing Weymouth Bay.
I’ve had some good times in Weymouth despite the state of the seafront B&B’s I’ve stayed in. In the years building up to 2012, I was regularly there shooting our hopeful Olympic sailors honing their skills at the annual Sail For Gold regattas and finally the London Olympics for real. What a fabulous couple of weeks it was that summer; sun and wind almost uninterrupted for the full fortnight. During covid though, it’s become home to much larger vessels that also share a rather large place in my heart, furloughed cruise ships. Last week, as lockdown restrictions were eased a little, I drove down to witness history (and test my eye-sight, ha ha). The weather forecast was for sun and very little wind so I went for it. I arrived before sunrise and left after sunset in the hope of getting the best light at either end of the day. It’s a rather dramatic sight seeing these giant, ocean dwellers, sitting serenely at anchor in the bay. They made me conjure up images in my mind of whales penned inside a sea-life aquarium. Rather more optimistically though, these creatures will go back to the seas and hopefully soon. I wonder what changes will take place on board them before that can happen? Cruising gets a bad wrap, unfairly I feel, when it comes to hygiene. Perhaps, in a post covid world, now that people have been educated that washing their hands is necessary and a basic human skill, finally comprehending how easily germs spread, cruising will be an even safer means of travel. 🙏🏻

Absolutelt, for yourself first.
The coronavirus have caused a huge fall in passenger demand worldwide, causing many airlines to retire older aircraft at a much faster rate. With a lower demand for air travel, many airlines will not need huge aircraft such as the 747s and A380 suberjumbos. Instead, these aircraft will be replaced by smaller new generation aircraft such as the 787 and A350.
The A380 have been a game changer in the luxury premium market, providing larger and more spacious cabins. For example, Etihad have The Residence, featuring a living room, a separate bedroom and a personal toilet. Singapore Airlines have also launched one of the largest suites in the world. The double suites on Singapore Airlines A380 features 2 armchairs and a queen size double bed (shown in the image above). The A380 have indeed redefined long haul premium air travel, similar to what luxury private jets has to offer, but at a cheaper rate than private jets.
With covid-19, many airlines have been retiring their A380s as its huge capacity is no longer needed. We can expect private jet demand to increase much faster than ever as the wealthy start to abandon flying first class on airlines. With less interaction and contact with people on private jets, it definitely decreases the risk of virus transmission.
After covid-19, as air travel recovers, we can see a surge in demand for private jet flights. As for first class onboard commercial flights, how do you think will the response be? Will the demand be affected?

Explanation: The silk earrings is a travelogue documentary about the silk road. This movie is 36 minutes that filmed in China and Iran. This comparative and analytical documentary introduces two important areas in route of the silk road; Jiangsu province in China and Qazvin province in Iran. These two areas have been two major poles in route of the Silk Road.
The silk road was a vast network of commercial and culture ways that has begun from east of china and in centuries connected some territories like china , Mongolia , Japan , Korean peninsula , Indian subcontinent , Iranian plateau , Mesopotamian , Arabian peninsula , Egypt , Ethiopia , Zanzibar , Sham , Anatolia , Greece and Venice. The main branch of this road was in lands that was started from china to the west that means Iran , Mesopotamian , Anatolia and Europe .Historians consider Xi'am city in shaanxi province that located in China was the beginning of this road . But some people in "Suzhou" , a historic city in the east of China , are claiming this great business road was started from their city.
And but me , a writer and documentary filmmaker from Iran , I'm invited to the east of China for seeing , searching and finding the silk earrings. That's why I start a trip to the most eastern place in the word. For documentation and self filmmaking for discovering and adventuring just like the silk road passengers. And the result of my trip is a movie called; The silk earrings. The viewer trips to the silk road with this documentary and finds out cultural intersections between Iran and China. This movie shows to the viewer the common myths and stories and ancient religions of Iran and China. Also Marco Polo, Nasirkhusraw Qubadiyani, Hsuan-nu, Confucius, art, exemplifies, dragon, gods, silk and adventure are the subjects of this documentary.
Nima Hassan beigi is producer and director of this documentary.
The silk earrings was first released in Tehran on October 2, 2019.
@rorydoylephoto here. Another ongoing project for me is called "Delta Hill Riders," named after the subculture of African American cowboys and cowgirls here in the rural Delta. I've been photographing this community for 3.5 years, exploring their deep-rooted traditions that date back for generations.
