Open Water: Greenlanders on the climate crisis. Guardian Films

Open Water: Greenlanders on the climate crisis. A poignant multi-award-winning Miran short film for Guardian Documentaries that has earned laurels from film festivals across the world. The narrative offers a unique glimpse into the lives of three Greenlanders: a hunter, a ship’s captain and a fisherman, individuals whose very existence and heritage is intertwined with the Arctic Ocean. Like many who live in the polar north, their fortunes straddle the extremes of summer and winter. Faced with a drastically changing environment, these seafarers reflect on their past, their present and uncertain future with a complex mix of emotions.

REDBULL TV 
ending hunger 

An 8 part mini series for Red Bull TV on global innovation and start ups. The Robin Hood Army is as close as you can get to a VIRAL COMMUNITY MOVEMENT – it was founded after a group of six young Indians took to the streets of Delhi with one simple aim: to feed the homeless. Overnight, they drove to restaurants, collected unsold food, re-packaged it and gave it to around 100 people sleeping rough in the capital. That was the beginning.

BBC PANORAMA
Trapped: The Chile Miners Story

Trapped alive longer and deeper underground than anybody in history, the 33 Chile miners somehow survived to be dramatically rescued.  For weeks, Panorama followed families and engineers at the surface as they worked to free the men.

Children in Prison

Children incarcerated in African prisons face years of confinement in cramped and dirty quarters, with insufficient food allocations, inadequate hygiene, and little or no clothing or other amenities. While these conditions are not uniform throughout the continent, their prevalence raises concern and needs to be addressed through prison reform and attention to human rights. Moreover, there are also several barriers—including state secrecy, weak civil society, and lack of public interest—that inhibit the collection of reliable data on African prisons.
