The Death Of Bees Explained – Parasites, Poison and Humans

a lecture in English

In 2015 the bees are still dying in masses. Which at first seems not very important until you realize that one third of all food humans consume would disappear with them. Millions could starve. The foes bees face are truly horrifying – some are a direct consequence of human greed. We need to help our small buzzing friends or we will face extremely unpleasant consequences.

Ovarian cancer: beyond resistance

a lecture in English

Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common cancer worldwide and one of the hardest to treat. As this Nature Outline animation shows, this is largely because many tumours develop resistance to first-line treatment: platinum-based chemotherapy. The good news is that experimental therapies in development could help to deliver a knockout blow to the deadly tumours.

Glory Days: W.E. NOLA

a documentary in English

GLORY DAYS: EPISODE TWO

There’s a historical marker that sits out front of Warren Easton’s building at 3019 Canal Street dating the institution all the way back to 1844, making it the oldest public high school not just in New Orleans but all of Louisiana. Easton became co-ed in 1952, integrated in 1967, and came back to life in 2006, the Orleans Parish School Board having tried shuttering it following damage suffered during Hurricane Katrina. The school’s latest chapter was kicked on by a loud, vocal community—prominent alumni such as the rapper Master P and NOLA jazz superstar Trombone Shorty, and newfound local booster, Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock. But it’s been made true by Easton’s football coach, Tony Hull.

When the New Orleans native and former NASA engineer arrived at his first head-coaching job in 2007, the school’s football reputation was in tatters, unable to even field a team the year before, its player-students scattered at other schools post-Katrina. Hull persevered—and re-built the program squad by squad. Come 2014, an incredible quarterback, Deshawn Capers-Smith, and the blue-chip All-America wide receiver, Tyron Johnson, anchored the Fighting Eagles. The scene was set for completing the school’s comeback. Easton was going to the Superdome to face one of Louisiana’s high-school football powers, Neville, in the Class 4A championship, looking to bring back to Canal Street its first state title since World War II.

Directed by Colin Barnicle for Victory Journal’s “Glory Days” series.

Two Men

a narrative film in English

Award winning Australian short film, Two Men, directed by Dominic Allen and shot in the Kimberly town of Fitzroy Crossing by Joel Betts, features a robust and dynamic cast of indigenous Australian non actors. With an original soundtrack by Melbourne artist Felix Riebl, Based on Kafka's short story, Two Men Running, Allen's short film has been screened internationally at film festivals including New York, Prague, London, Melbourne and Sydney and in 2009 was a Dendy Australian Short Film of the Year finalist.

The film was instrumental in supporting director Dominic Allen's Emerging Australian Filmmaker Award at the Melbourne International Film Festival and the 2009 Inside Film Rising Talent Award.

2009 MIFF Jury member Deb Verhoeven remarked "Two Men proves that the simplest scenario can provide the perfect premise for conveying the most profound insights. But (Allen's) key achievement is to understand that even the largest ideas are best told with brevity and the most serious with humour."

Two Men was made with the support of Yiriman, a community initiated and community driven project supported by the Kimberley Aboriginal Law and Culture Centre which aims to build stories, strength and resilience in the Kimberley's youth.

Two Men is distributed by Flickerfest.
