The Ultimate Explorer Vehicle: Test Driving Bran Ferren's KiraVan

a report in English

The KiraVan is meant to be the ultimate exploration vehicle—a ’Swiss army knife on wheels.’ A pet project for designer Bran Ferren, who named the van after his daughter Kira, the KiraVan also acts as a test bed for travel tech and vehicle engineering.

In the latest episode of Voyager, made possible by KAYAK.co.uk, Motherboard visits Ferren in LA county to see his souped-up caravan, which comes complete with everything from cameras and thermal imagers to an accompanying motorbike hoisted on the back. Formerly president of R&D at Walt Disney Imagineering, Ferren’s certainly not short of ideas to add to his design.

After a tour, we take the KiraVan for a test drive.

Could this be our ride to far-flung destinations in the future?

ACROSS america

a documentary in no language

Not long ago my partner and I traversed the vast country of America (US). This dreamy lyrical documentary muses on the subtle shifts in landscape and how land shapes culture, and how tied together these elements create a national identity.

i ran my hand over the spine of america / how coast lines become forests / turn foothills and mountains / how mountains level / to plateaus / grasslands crack wide to canyons / species shift / obeying the land / culture catches the light of the land / and beast / reflects and refines / all one land / one body / one animal family / breathe in and out / america.

Wenn der Hunger zur Sucht wird: Das Leiden der Magersüchtigen

a report in German

Zwischen spindeldürr und magersüchtig liegen nur ein paar hundert Gramm. Ersteres gilt zu Unrecht als Schönheitsideal und letzteres zu Recht als lebensgefährliche Erkrankung. Kein anderer psychischer Defekt fordert so viele Todesopfer wie der Irrglaube, zu dick zu sein. SPIEGEL TV hat drei Menschen getroffen, die mitten in der deutschen Wohlstandsgesellschaft fast verhungert wären.

Female Fighters of Kurdistan (Part 1/3)

a documentary in English

Come with us to Northern Iraq for a springtime frolic with the lovely lady guerillas of the Kurdish Liberation Movement.

Part 1 of 3: http://bit.ly/Female-Fighters-1
Part 2 of 3: http://bit.ly/Female-Fighters-2
Part 3 of 3: http://bit.ly/Female-Fighters-3

From Boudica of the British Celts to Corporal Klinger, few things unsettle the male mind like a lady in arms. The Kurds of Northern Iraq have long recognized this principle and incorporated it into their quest to build a Kurdish homeland in the overlap between Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and Syria. Fighting alongside their male comrades in a region not exactly known for its progressive stance on women's rights, the female Peshmerga guerillas of the Kurdish Liberation Movement built a reputation for themselves in the 70s and 80s as demure diaboliques with the deadly poise of Leila Khaled or Tania-era Patty Hearst.

Having secured the northern third of Iraq for themselves in the aftermath of the first Gulf War, the Kurds have spent the last two decades divesting themselves of their guerilla jamjams, building up a stable and booming economy in their semi-autonomous little hamlet, and generally enjoying not being in the middle of the current Iraq War. Up in the hills abutting Iran and Turkey, however, the struggle for a Greater Kurdistan continues for boy and girl alike.

The successors to Iraqi Kurdistan's old rebel militias are a milk-besodden Alphabits bowl of various Maoist, quasi-Maoist, and won't-say-they're-Maoist-but-come-on guerilla armies. You've got the PKK, the PJAK, the KCK—all of whom have slightly different tactics, territories, and ideologies but the same ultimate goal and, secretly, a lot of the same personnel. More importantly, they are all completely gender-equal, just like Mao wanted it. From the highest command to the lowest potato peeler to the ghillie-suited sniper on the front lines, dudes and dames do it the same.

We picked the youngest of these new Kurdish guerilla groups, PJAK, the Free Life for Kurdistan party, and drove up to their outpost on the Iranian border to see how their female fighters are helping their people draft a definitive answer to the Kurdish Question that's vexed Middle-Eastern politics for the last century. And hopefully find an answer to our own Kurdish Question. Which is, What the fuck is the Kurdish Question?
