We chat about his near lifelong love of film, the entertainment industry in Egypt and its impact throughout the Arab-speaking world, and the unique challenges of filmmakers on the Continent. We also get into the many artist development programs and resources that are under the Seen Films umbrella including a crowdsourced post-production unit and their magazine, Terr.so, the only online magazine and portal on cinema, audiovisual media, film criticism, and filmmaking in Arabic. Mostafa is also the producer of Homemade Stories which will have its world premiere at IDFA 2021. Mostafa is a Bruce Springsteen fan, so this week's song is “Hello Sunshine.”

L'idée politique de réunir les États d'Afrique n'est pas nouvelle; elle remonte à l'époque coloniale et a été soutenue au 20e siècle par la diaspora africaine. Avec la décolonisation, le panafricanisme a pris une ampleur nouvelle et s'est retrouvé incarné par les héros de l'indépendance. Patrick Dramé, professeur titulaire au Département d'histoire de l'Université de Sherbrooke et spécialiste de l'Afrique, rappelle les moments forts du panafricanisme.

With few exceptions, traditional accounts of the development of the modern world put European history at the center of everything, often focusing on the “Age of Discovery” and global expansion, the Enlightenment, and so on. “The history of Africa, by contrast, has long been relegated to the remote outskirts of our global story,” as Howard W. French asserts in his critically acclaimed and game-changing new book. “What if, instead, we put Africa and Africans at the very center of our thinking about the origins of modernity?”In this segment of The Marc Steiner Show, Marc talks with French about his new book, Born in Blackness: Africa, Africans, and the Making of the Modern World, 1471 to the Second World War, and about the forcibly forgotten history of Africa's central place in the making of the modern world. Howard W. French is a professor of journalism at Columbia University and former New York Times bureau chief in the Caribbean and Central America, West and Central Africa, Tokyo, and Shanghai. He is the author of numerous books, including A Continent for the Taking: The Tragedy and Hope of Africa and China's Second Continent: How a Million Migrants Are Building a New Empire in Africa.Tune in for new episodes of The Marc Steiner Show every Tuesday and Friday on TRNN.Pre-Production/Studio/Post Production: Stephen FrankHelp us continue producing The Marc Steiner Show by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer:Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-mssSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-stGet The Marc Steiner Show updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-stLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

n this episode, I speak with the publicist and one of the founders of NOISE Film PR, Mirjam Wiekenkamp. During our conversation, we get into her publicist origin story, some of the differences between PR firms in the US and Europe, the unique ways a publicist can position documentary films in the European documentary festival landscape, and how publicist and impact producers can often build upon and support one another's work on behalf of a filmmaker. Mirjam and NOISE Film PR are representing several films at DOKLeipzig and IDFA that are part of the Steps' Generation Africa program. To celebrate these young filmmakers from the Continent, this week's song is Kokoroko's “Abusey Junction.” KOKOROKO (meaning 'be strong' in Urhobo), are a collective of young musicians brought together by a love for Afrobeat led by trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey. They specialize in a soul-shaking, horn fuelled sound with West African roots and inner London hues. “Abusey Junction” is a ballad written by guitarist Oscar Jerome. It was written on the roof of a compound in Gambia where the band spent time last year immersing themselves in the soundscapes of the region.

In the development and execute of the operational plan that was to become OVERLORD, Lieutenant General Morgan faced numerous challenges, the most pressing being the inability of American and British political and military senior leaders to agree to a common strategy for the defeat of Germany. Morgan also faced challenges with a lack of resources to support what was to become the primary mission of the Allies, the return to the Continent. Finally, Morgan dealt with personalities, such as Dwight D. Eisenhower and Bernard L.

Despite all these challenges, Morgan produced a plan for OVERLORD that was fundamentally followed on June 6, 1944. Learn more about your ad choices.

Vera Chirwa was Malawi's first female lawyer and became a founding member of the Malawi Congress Party and the Nyasaland African Women's league. Chirwa's belief in multiparty democratic rule came at a time when a dangerous despot, Hastings Banda ruled a newly independent Malawi. In 1982, Banda ended up charging Vera and her husband Orton with treason, and the following year the court sentenced the couple to death. In this episode we look at Vera Chirwa's life and her drive to keep going despite being held as a prisoner of conscience in horrendous conditions.

Post By: Adam Turteltaub It's been an interesting and challenging times for efforts to encourage employees to speak up, reports Neta Meidav, co-Founder and CEO of reporting tool provider Vault Platform. Despite the increase in employee activism, there has been a decline in year-over-year helpline volume, which she attributes to both the nature of traditional help vehicles and a deficit of trust in the workplace. Other factors having an impact are: a desire of employees to report to external avenues, COVID-related changes in the workplace, and a new focus on ethics and purpose. This last factor goes hand in hand, she argues, with a growing tendency of social issues to become business issues. Regulators have also been stepping in. For some time, of course, the SEC has encouraged reports to its Office of the Whistleblower. The EU Whistleblower Directive has acted as a catalyst across the Continent, with countries in the midst of creating their own laws, with varying protections likely. She expects this to drive increased accountability and transparency. In this podcast she encourages compliance teams to think about the activist sentiment in Europe, what it means and how it differs from the US. And, of course, organizations need to recognize the complications posed by GDPR. She also advocates for a reassessment of how compliance teams encourage employees to report internally. With open door policies no longer relevant in a time of remote working, she believes it's time to find new tools and increase efforts to promote psychological safety.

There aren't many in this world who can be called a real-life Lorax. In fact, there's just one: Dr. Meg Lowman. Lowman was nicknamed that by National Geographic for her enthusiasm and knowledge of all things trees. A true tree hugger, Lowman, executive director of the TREE Foundation, has been up in the branches and crowns for decades, learning and sharing that enthusiasm and knowledge about the arboreal world all around and above us. With her new book, Arbornaut: A Life Discovering the Eighth Continent in the Trees Above Us, Lowman shares her incredible story. From the first seeds of wanting to explore the Australian rainforests in her graduate school days, to measuring tree growth in the northeastern United States; from climbing up the enormous redwoods on the Pacific, to saving Ethiopia's last forests with the help of local priests, Lowman's adventures become our own. Part memoir, part fieldwork account, The Arbornaut highlights her rise, one of only a few women in the scientific world of dendrology (the study of trees) and offers ways in which everyone can help conserve trees and make a positive impact against climate change. The Lorax would be proud. Dr. Meg Lowman is an American biologist, educator, ecologist, writer, editor, and public speaker. She is the executive director of the TREE Foundation and a professor at the National University of Singapore, Arizona State University, and Universiti Sains Malaysia.
