The Great Wave


Playlist, 49 min. / Parts

The Great Wave off Kanagawa, sometimes referred to as "Under a Wave off  Kanagawa" is perhaps the most instantly recognisable art image from the  far east. 
It was produced as woodblock print by the 18th century  Japanese artist Hokusai who was in his 70's when he produced it. First  published in 1832, it was an instant success and continues to transfix  artists and historians the world over.

Uxuf Xipay (The Plunder)

The documentary "Üxüf Xipay (The Plunder)" talks about the multiple dimensions within the process of organization of the Mapuche People in Southern Chile.

This is accomplished in six blocks or thematic unities, covering 120 years of struggles and history.

The first block, entitled "WallMapu" (the ancient territory), talks about all that existed before the Spanish conquest. It’s a story about territory and culture.

The second one, "The Reduction", refers to the evil relationship between the Chilean State and the Mapuche People; the consequences of forcing a determined development model to people who live according to other laws and beliefs.

The third block is entitled "Reform and Counter Reform", and it considers the diverse policies of land tenancy and use, and their different impact on indigenous peoples in Chile. Read more + high resolution video.

Christiania

Het voortbestaan van de Deense vrijstad en hippie-enclave Christiania is door een uitspraak van de Deense Hoge Raad zeer onzeker geworden.

De Hoge Raad oordeelde dat de semi-autonome stad in de Deense hoofdstad Kopenhagen ontruimd mag worden. Dat willen de Deense autoriteiten al jaren, maar tot nu toe lukte dat nooit. Lees hier verder.
