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.

CATERPILLAR

a narrative film in English

Finding your way can mean losing your mind in the process…

An isolated elderly woman, in desperate need of stimulation, conjures an infestation of silk-spinning caterpillars, thus leading her to a mind-bending epiphany.

‘Caterpillar’ is a cerebral drama, filmed in the historical Wynkoop House, famous for housing George Washington. The crew consists of highly esteemed artists working across a wide spectrum of disciplines. This includes special effects artist, Ben Bornstein (300, The Fighter), visual effects artist Greg Silverman (Black Swan), and editor, Corey Bayes (Birdman, The Knick, Contagion). From storyline through production, Caterpillar is an ode to the creative process. This film is a must-see for anyone who has ever submitted to their imagination and felt transformed by an idea.

Iraq Explained -- ISIS, Syria and War

a lecture in English

The current crisis in Iraq explained in under 5 minutes.

There is war in Iraq? Again? And the US and Iran are talking about working together? And who is this ISIS Terrorist group that is all over the news? And Religion? Oh dear... When exactly has the world gone mad again?

It is not possible to explain a complicated topic like this without simplification. We are very aware that this video is not painting a full picture of the situation. But we hope that it may lay the foundation on which you can try to do your own research and understand how horribly Fu**ed up the whole situation is.

We did have to produce the video super fast -- thanks a lot to our friends Martin Wackerbauer and Magnus Schlüter for helping us out -- we would not have been able to make this video in time without you guys!

Kurzgesagt loves all people as long as they don't hurt others and don't hinder mankind on its quest to the stars. So it was very sad to read so much terrible stuff about the situation in Iraq. Hopefully it will get better.

You can get the music of the video here: http://thomasveith.bandcamp.com/track/iraq-explained

Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
