Alex Quiroga: «Nous sommes ce que nous faisons» Interview de Peter M. Martinez

Alex Quiroga:  «Somos lo que hacemos» ___________________________ Entrevista por Pedro M. Martínez        Ayer nevó en Madrid. Recibí una llamada de Alex Quiroga mientras paseaba haciendo unas fotos; no ha habido problemas importantes por la nieve, parece que en esta ciudad vamos aprendiendo a convivir con el frío y las calzadas resbaladizas. Un vecino me diría, poco después, que lo del calentamiento global era un invento de los políticos: nieva en ...


Director: Marie-Monique ROBIN.
Since its beginnings in 1901, the Monsanto empire has been built upon on the manufacture of chemical products that have ended up being banned from the market. Every time, the multinational has lied, hidden or doctored studies that demonstrate the harmfulness of its products. It has had proceedings brought against it and been ordered to pay hefty fines, but that has not stopped its irresistible ascension. Today, it is the world leader in GMO production.  The transgenic seeds it markets are resistant to the powerful herbicide, Roundup, its landmark product for twenty years. An investigation into the Saint Louis “giant” and the recent developments it has made in biotechnology and seed control.


Director: Jihan EL TAHRI .
An untold story about the cold war on the African continent, or the defeat of an ideal, internationalism, which Cuban guerrillas failed to defend. In Africa, in the early '60s, four adversaries with conflicting interests face off: the Soviets want to expand their influence; the United States intend to appropriate the continent's natural riches; the former empires seek to revive their shaky colonial power; and the young nations defend their newly-won independence, armed with an ideal: internationalism. African revolutionaries like Patrice Lumumba, Amilcar Cabral and Agostinho Neto call on Cuban guerrillas to help them in their struggle, and Fidel Castro's men will play a central role on the continent, from Che Guevara's tragicomic epic in the Congo up to the triumph of the battle of Cuito Cuanavale in Angola. This film relates a largely untold story, going from 1961 to 1989, with archives and interviews to back it up.


Director: Jihan EL TAHRI .
This absorbing documentary follows the transition of the ANC from a liberation organisation into South Africa's ruling party. On 20 September 2008, Jacob Zuma, the president of the ruling African National Congress, toppled the South African president Thabo Mbeki from power when his party's national executive committee voted to sack him. Mbeki accepted his political demise calmly, welcomed the news and agreed to go quietly. The vote to oust him was the culmination of an epic power struggle between Mbeki, seen by many as an aloof intellectual the ANC sent into exile for 28 years, and Zuma, the Zulu farm-boy with no formal education who spent 10 years in jail on Robben Island, and who earlier this year became South Africa's third president since the end of apartheid. This absorbing documentary follows the transition of the ANC from a liberation organisation into South Africa's ruling party, through the evolution of the relationship between Mbeki and Zuma. The two men, both 66 and once comrades-in-arms, have been engaged in a bitter power struggle that has threatened to destroy the movement that enfranchised black South Africans, and to drag the country deeper into turmoil. Behind the Rainbow features key interviews with senior ANC personnel including Jacob Zuma, Kgalema Motlanthe, Pallo Jordan, Thabo Mbeki and Terror Lekota.

Mère-Bi, La Mère / Mother

Director: Ousmane william MBAYE.
Senegal’s first journalist, now 82 rainy seasons old, Annette Mbaye d’Erneville has been very early, concerned by the development of her country . Militant from the first hours of the woman's emancipation cause, she has been a pioneer activist and anti-conformist. "Capturing a generation of pioneers who are our mothers, capturing my mother!" Born in Sokone in 1926 as a child of the colonial period, she is "torn "by her education “vieille France" and her love for her country of origin and Serer tradition. During her university education in Paris in 1947, she immersed herself in the intellectual circles of the 50s and met those who built the independence throughout Africa. There, she founded a family, recorded her firsts radio programs, got a journalism diploma. In 1957, she returned to Senegal to serve her country. ! The Senegalese writer, Boubacar Boris Diop, described Annette d’Erneville, as follows: "It is that having lived our century as a true communication woman, a lot of other destinies encountered hers . . . her memory is still sharp and when we listen to her, it is so surprising to hear her recount so many famous historic characters or unknown people and most of all, from so many different generations."
