      • Displaced and Desperate: Doro, South Sudan


        from STEVE SHELTON IMAGES, LLC Added 1,816 28 6

        For several years I've been studying Sudan's political turmoil and the resulting migrations of tribes around and into South Sudan as border tensions fluctuate. These tensions are not new to a country divided not only ethnically, but spiritually and economically as a predominant Arab government in Khartoum has, until recent history, held the economic purse strings for a largely animist, agriculturally based South Sudan. On July 9, 2011, South Sudan voted to secede from the North splitting the country in half and taking with it most of the country's oil reserves. Tensions grew into armed conflicts along the new border. Suddenly choices about where to live and raise families had to be made for the marginalized living along the border. Where to farm and find food? Many times splintered by blasts in the black of night, tribes ran blindly into the bush seeking refuge. Tightly knit for generations these tribes, having relied--with their lives--for years on one another, now had unraveled and become refugees within their own country. This is a mere snapshot of these lives.

        • The Sound of Walking by Barbara Shipka


          from Barbara Shipka Added 647 45 5

          The story begins with my arrival at a refugee camp near Al Gedaref in The Sudan in January of 1985. As the story unfolds, it is really about questions I still hold today - of how best to make a difference at the global level with my one small contribution. Photos and music used with permission. I found the photos on Flickr. They were taken by a professional photographer who was in the same camp at the very same time as I was though we did not meet. The music is by Michael Mollura and is the theme of the movie "Climate Refugees."

            Limbo is a 10 minute documentary following Nancy Rios, a Cuban woman who was exiled from her country after she went to Germany. She was forced to leave her family behind and now manages to create a family among the other refugees that live with her. Limbo's engaging narrative about family and challenging situations will hopefully inspire, those who find themselves in similar situations as Nancy, to remain positive and persevere.

            • Say hello to the world for us


              from Micha Hilliard Added 1,427 5 4

              "Say hello to the world for us" offers a compassionate and refreshingly unique look at the West Bank through the eyes and music of two young, maybe slightly naive, but intensely passionate violinists. It follows their travels from Amman to Bethlehem and back, as they perform and give workshops to eager children along the way. As the trip unfolds, they reach a new understanding about what it means to be Classical musicians and human beings. Lauren and Holly both study the violin under professor Milan Vitek at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Lauren was born and raised in Amman, Jordan, and is fluent in Arabic. Holly was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, but spent most of her childhood in Missouri.
