Xatar in Prison: VICE INTL (Germany)

a report in German

Giwar Hajabi, aka Xatar, is a German rapper of Iranian descent who was released from Prison in December, 2014. He was originally sentenced to eight years in jail after robbing a gold transporter in 2009, stealing gold worth $2.2 million (and it's still missing). Previous offenses included breaking a playboy bunny's nose in Hugh Hefner's mansion during a trip to the USA, and alleged drug dealing during a stay in London. After the gold robbery, he fled to Iraq via Moscow where he was jailed, tortured, and finally handed over to Germany.

VICE Germany was the only camera team admitted during his stay in prison. In Xatar in Prison, we discuss his newly-found religious beliefs, follow him around during a typical day in jail, and attend a group therapy session. While assuring everyone that he has changed, his and his labels' music continue to spread messages of crime and violence. One of his most notorious music videos showed the exact circumstances of the gold robbery months before he actually committed the crime.

The City in the Middle of the Crystal Sea

a documentary in English

A miniature world of water, oil, crystal and iron.

The sea is a mixture of water and vegetable oil, and the crystals are sodium thiosulphate pentahydrate, which crystallises very quickly when melted then cooled.

The shiny black oil is ferrofluid - a suspension of tiny iron particles in oil with a surfactant to hold it together. Magnets are placed out of shot to make the spikes.

Shot on a Pentax-A 100mm macro f4 and Sigma super-wide II 24mm (reversed) on a Canon 600D / T3i using technicolor cinestyle. Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.

The Record Breaker

a documentary in English


a film by Brian McGinn

The Record Breaker tells the life story of Ashrita Furman, the man with the most Guinness World Records of all time.

Winner of the Vimeo Audience Award at the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and Jury Prizes at the 2012 Palm Springs International ShortsFest, the 2013 New Orleans Film Festival, and the 2014 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, The Record Breaker follows Furman as he trains to set a new record: climbing Machu Picchu on stilts.

'A swimmingly edited, life-affirming film. Genuinely touching.'
— Robert Silva, IndieWire

'Hands-down the funniest documentary of the year.'
— Marianna Torgovnick, TED

'An ode to human obsession, dedication and monumental silliness.'
— Lena Dystant, Selectism

'A complex appraisal of a fascinating individual...McGinn's film excels because it does more than just focus on Furman’s unconventional hobby. As emotionally complex as it is gloriously ludicrous.'
— Ivan Kander, Short Of The Week

Life as an Illegal Immigrant in Greece

a report in English

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Greece has always been a gateway for immigrants searching for what they assumed would be a better life in Europe. But many of those who've crossed illegally into Greece have found that they have traded one bad situation for another. Refugees from war-torn countries like Syria and Afghanistan are finding themselves stuck in a country that is not only battling an economic crisis but is witnessing a rise in anti-immigrant violence, exemplified by the a nationalist political party known as the Golden Dawn.

VICE News' Alex Miller travelled from Athens to the western port of Patras to find out what it is like to be trapped in a country you never wanted to be in in the first place.

Idiot with a Tripod

a documentary in English

"Idiot with a Tripod" was shot, edited and posted online in one day without any expectations. I simply thought it would be cool to shoot the big NYC blizzard on 12/26/10.

Then Roger Ebert fell in love with it.

He championed the short, calling it "Man in a Blizzard," and said it should win an Academy Award.

It went madly viral after that and did over a million hits. It was subsequently named TIME Magazine's #3 Creative Video of 2011.

So all I've got to say is: thanks to everybody who's seen the short and liked it.
