1. ASMAWA – Seabase in Eritrea (Official Teaser)


    from YUHZIMI Ltd. / Added

    Do you know of Eritrea? If so, you’re amongst a minority. Many people have not heard of it, let alone know where to find it on the world map. So why then would an inadvertent figurehead of the global fixed gear scene travel there? Two reasons apply to Patrick Seabase. Firstly, Eritrea is a mountainous country with some spectacular roads. Secondly, it has a rich cycling tradition that is as yet mainly undiscovered. ASMAWA is not just a film about “Euro-boy” riding brakeless down a mountain road in Africa. It is more the story of a pure-hearted athlete who discovers a new world – not least within himself.

      Spreading out along Ethiopia's northern border with Eritrea, the region of Tigray has a tense and difficult history. The area was hit particularly hard by the famines and civil war during the 1980s and 1990s. The region has a high prevalence of people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as many broken homes and dead or missing men.For the women of Tigrinia and their families life has been tough, with limited access to financial, medical, educational and social support systems. The Spanish Government funded United Nation's Millennium Development Goal Fund (MDGF) is focused on supporting the Ethiopian Government to meet the MDGs. The Leave No Women Behind program works with UNFPA and supports existing Ethiopian government structures to try and improve the lives of these women. mdgfund.org produced by oliverwilkins.com

            The plight of the Eritrean refugees in Sudan is absolutely dire. Some people have lived in these camps for 30 to 40 years and for some its all they have known of life. How can this be just, right or ok?? Witnessing this level of poverty and neglect i experienced a profound grief for humanity. Tears for the numb, broken heart of humanity that turns a blind eye to such incredible levels of anguish and injustice. On average they bury 30 people a day here, many from malnutrition. These are UNHCR camps but the UN were no where in sight. The well pumps hadn't worked for several years so they have to walk for hours every day to fetch water that is contaminated and disease ridden. I saw doctors in tears that they could not provide the children with the medicines they need. Often these doctors pay for their patients medicines out of their own meagre wages as the refugees have no money as there is no economy in the camps and they are separated from Sudanese life. In the midst of all this tragedy, the enduring spirit of the Eritrean people in the refugee camps was beautiful to behold. I am very happy that since our trip Healing Bridges has been successful in building a new school there. For me one of the outcomes of filming this and witnessing their plight is an overwhelming desire to do something to help them. I am planning a permaculture program there to increase food production and lessen malaria that will ultimately save lives. I hope the program will be up and running soon. We need donations to make this happen, if you want to help out on this project please contact me directly. I filmed this in the summer of 2008. The brilliant Jeff MacIntyre did a fabulous job on the voiceover and editing.

              ***The film was first first screened on Channel 4, on 24 June, 2014. When a boat carrying over 500 migrants from North Africa capsized off the coast of the Italian Island of Lampedusa, 360 people drowned within sight of the islands most popular tourist beach. This film (for Channel 4’s ‘Dispatches’) tells the inside story of the tragedy - through the testimony of survivors, and locals who were the first on the scene. Award winning photographer Zed Nelson follows the clandestine onward journey of the survivors as they navigate the illegal immigration route out of Italy into Northern Europe. At the centre of the programme is the story of one remarkable young woman, one of only five women who survived. Fanus, a teenager from Eritrea, explains desire to escape a life of military servitude that motivated her flight from the country. She recounts the extraordinary hardship she suffered crossing Africa and how, unable to swim, she somehow survived for hours in the water after the boat went down. Fanus is caught up as a witness in a court case involving a man accused of her kidnap. She then escapes and goes to incredible lengths to circumvent the European asylum system in order to reach the country she dreams of living in. A remarkable portrait of human determination, the programme raises questions about Europe’s immigration barriers and the lengths desperate refugees will go to in order to breach them. ---------------- **You can watch the complete version of the film (30 mins) on 4oD, here: channel4.com/programmes/europes-immigration-disaster/on-demand

                      This film echoes the journey of so many Eritreans who have been held captive, and forced to raise their own ransom amidst torture. Human Trafficking of Eritreans throughout Egypt and the Sinai is a horrific and much overlooked issue. The victims, mostly Eritrean (99 per cent), Somali and Sudanese refugees, include many Christians who have fled persecution in their homelands. Most of the victims have been kidnapped from the Shagarab refugee camps in eastern Sudan, home to tens of thousands of Eritrean refugees, and then transferred to the Sinai where they are sold to criminals. Those trafficked are held by their captors for ransom (From their families and, rarely, the government). Prisoners are tortured daily and in many cases, killed brutally by their captors. The Eritrean people are a tight knit community and so their captors prey on this aspect to gain wealth, because their people will go around the world and tirelessly raise the money for their release. But the vast majority of the ransom money is funneled into black market weapons purchases for Hamas and other terror organizations. Stories from those who escape tell of the following atrocities - Sleep deprivation Organ Harvesting Plastic melted on the skin Savage beatings Water/Food deprivation Burning of the feet, hands and various other areas Prolonged lengths of time hung from hooks, chains, ceilings etc Sexual Assault Wounds inflicted with Guns,Knives,Fire and other instruments of torture. Please raise the Alarm and help us raise awareness of these issues. Directed and produced by the Students of Kings School of Media - Jerusalem, Israel Shot on the Sony F5 in 4K RAW.
