The Mafia Is Trashing Italy... Literally (Part 1)

a report in English

In the city of Naples, Italy, the Mafia has controlled the waste-management industry for decades -- dumping and burning trash across its rolling hills and vineyards. In 1994, the European Union declared the situation an official environmental emergency, and things have only gotten worse since then. When we investigated the situation we found mutated sheep, poisoned mozzarella, alarming rates of cancer, and pissed off farmers ready to push back against the Camorra, Italy's most powerful and dangerous criminal organization (and the government that enables it).

Storming Spain's Razor-Wire Fence: Europe Or Die (Episode 1/4)

a report in English

Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

VICE News presents Europe or Die, a new four-part series that documents the efforts of those risking their lives to reach Europe, and the forces tasked to keep them out.

In episode one of our series, VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson travels to the border between Morocco and Spain, where West Africans in their thousands storm the razor-wire-clad fences. Many are beaten back by border police or illegally returned.

200 Years Fraunhofer lines

a lecture in English

Researcher Joseph von Fraunhofer, born in 1787, brought us closer to the stars. Counted as one of the founders of modern optics, he succeeded in manufacturing telescopes in a quality that had never been seen before. In 1814, he made his most significant discovery, which was then named after him – Fraunhofer lines. These make it possible for us to get a closer look at space and to understand how stars are born.

Incarnate

a narrative film in English

• A nervous soldier must drastically break protocol before the whole rescue mission fails •

In an odd way, I've always thought of this as a Christmas movie. Not in the normal sense of Rudolf and Santa Claus or holiday cheer; but in another way that the title indicates. The impetus behind the film was always a fascination with the Christian miracle of the incarnation. God becoming man is like an alien becoming human. To me, it's as crazy as knowing that your whole ant colony is doomed to die, unless you agreed to become an ant. After seeing Children of Men, I strongly felt how the birth of a baby could be the hope for all mankind [whether or not that was the intention of the filmmakers]. And I wondered if I could focus my story around a transformation into something other, something less, in order to save. So it's definitely an allegory, and an experiment. I hope you feel something because of it, and think new thoughts afterward.

Thanks to the many people who helped make it a reality. There were some really exhausting, long days, and I haven't forgotten how hard everyone worked. Chris Stiles, I will forever be in your debt.
