I bash bad ideas with better ones and have no respect for your childish belief in superstition that belongs in the Bronze Age. You've contribute nothing except nonsensical drivel. Any half-brained fool can use their myths to support and crazy position. Go sterilize yourself and do the gene pool a favour. Legal and Illegal immigration are different. In this video it seems as though they've blurred the two in order to make a point.

As for people feeling marginalised in Israeli/any other society? Well yeah, any ethnic minority is going to some extent, feel marginalised in a culturally, linguistically and socially foreign society that they have relocated to. The fact that this is purely a topic of national immigration that has been made a story out of the fact that it is occurring within Israel, does no justice to the major issues pertaining to the story such as race/racism, immigration, security or Israel as a whole.

Are u real? ur brothers in קgypt killing them alllllllllll u fucking lairs. Of course you're not. None of you are. mcp. Migrant demand ultimatum. Migrant demands 50 000. Migrant demand for 50000. I see how immigrants integrating in British society. Muslim patrol forever. The term racist and bigots hav no meaning n e more.

Immigrant dilemma. The last election saw the Knesset become much more diverse, including two new Ethiopians. There's been a lot of diversity in Israeli politics, Druze/Bedouin/etc and Jews of all backgrounds and from all nations. Israel's parliament is more diverse than the governments of over 130 nations (Including civilized countries like Japan and S. Korea. Migrant dilemme du prisonnier. History of the usa is one big lie. And then TRUMP CAME ! HE ACTUALLY DOES NOT KNOW THE STORY OF HIS OWN COUNTRY 😐😐😐 A NATION BUILT BY IMMIGRANTS. Into migrant dilemma what children. Inquiry migrant dilemma what children. Migrant dilemma. Hong Kong, like many cities around the world, benefits from the help of underpaid Filipino workers. A local domestic worker would cost 8 an hour, but a Filipina in the same role works round the clock, 6 days a week, for just 500 a month. There are strict rules for these poor workers, who arent allowed to maintain their own residences (if they could even afford them. They often sleep in the kitchen, which is also where they eat, alone, after having served the family. These are the people who care for the elderly or nurture the very young. Away from their own families, often even leaving young children behind, they pour love and care into their duties while receiving very little in return. Sunday Beauty Queen examines these workers, and the pastime they enjoy in their very limited time off: beauty pageants. Every Sunday they gather in events they organize themselves, strutting their stuff in costumes equal portions prom dress and cardboard accoutrements. This well-intentioned documentary by Baby Ruth Villarama sheds light on important issues faced by migrant workers but lacks real depth, raising more questions than it answers. These women run themselves ragged serving others, sending all of their money back home to the families they left behind. They reclaim their dignity and their personhood on Sundays, competing in made-up beauty pageants. If the awarding of crowns and sashes runs late, they could lose their jobs on the spot for coming in past curfew. Instantly homeless in a foreign country, they have 14 days to find new employment or they are forced to leave. Many cant even afford to leave, due to fees charged by both Hong Kong and the Philippines coming and going, on top of airfare and the shame of going home empty-handed. I loved getting to know the women in this documentary, but I wish I knew them better, had a fuller sense of their stories. Sunday Beauty Queen is an excellent start, but these workers deserve a bigger piece of the pie, both in life and on film. This review first appeared at Cinema Axis. Only a few minutes into Monsieur Mayonnaise, my brains got an itch. Something about this feels familiar but it cant be the movie as its making its Canadian premiere at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival. Rather its the man himself, artist Philippe Mora, who Ive lately seen in Three Days in Auschwitz, about how his mother narrowly escaped being sent to Auschwitz. Philippe Mora is an artist of all mediums; while he did not direct this particular documentary, he did write and illustrate the graphic novel of the same name. Monsieur Mayonnaise is about Moras father, a member of the French resistance. He earned the code name Monsieur Mayonnaise when he suggested the resistance smuggle important documents inside sloppy, mayonnaise-filled sandwiches, after he observed Nazis avoiding greasy foods in order to keep their pristine gloves clean. His fathers position allowed him to protect and shelter the family of the young woman with whom he was quickly falling in love. After the war, fearful of another, Moras parents fled to Australia, where they made their home, raised a family, and opened several restaurants which would feature hand-made mayonnaise prominently. These are the reminiscences that inspired the colourful artwork that makes up Monsieur Mayonnaise, both the comic and the film. Director Trevor Graham films the madcap artist as he careens around the world, meeting up with heroes, villains, and the ordinary people still alive today because of his fathers efforts – teamwork improbably involving Marcel Marceau – smuggling Jewish children across the border. Mora is practically a subject unto himself, and if his flightiness is mirrored in the documentary, so too is his exuberance. You can catch a screening of this film on the following dates: Thursday 11 May, 3:30 PM – Alliance Francaise (Director Trevor Graham will Skype in for a Q&A) Sunday 14 May, 1:00 PM – Cineplex Cinemas Empress Walk 9 I was probably too young for Garbage Pail Kids. I was possibly too young for Cabbage Patch Kids too, for that matter, but had one anyway, given to me when I was 2 years old and my dumb Mom replaced me with a brand new baby. My Cabbage Patch Kid was named Maud (they came pre-named, with a birth certificate) and she had red yarn hair. My baby sister also got one, a brunette named Valerie, which I felt was unfair because shed done nothing to deserve it besides poop and scream and steal my parents love. Cabbage Patch Dolls were a huge phenomenon in the 1980s, and so too, eventually, were the little trading cards that parodied them. Topps bubblegum did Bazooka and other candy store staples. Theyd paired baseball cards with bubblegum for years, and were expanding to “non-sport” cards as well. Failing to secure rights to do a legit Cabbage Patch line, they decided instead to do a “fuck you” line that would skewer these saccharine-sweet dolls. 30 Years of Garbage introduces us to the brilliant, twisted minds behind this idea that was obsessively collected by kids and doggedly censored by parents and principals. Jacques Cousteau, for some reason, cautioned parents that their Garbage Pail loving kids would inevitably end up on cocaine! I may have been too young to appreciate this stuff at the time, but I have certainly been aware of them in retrospect. These bubblegum comic artists tapped into a vein of childhood rebellion and ended up making lasting work. I was shocked to learn that a Garbage Pail co-creator was none other than Art Spiegelman, who wrote Maus, a deeply moving graphic novel about the Holocaust (he uses cats and mice effectively – if you havent read it, you simply must. I shouldnt be surprised that Id never known the connection – his publishers worked hard to keep it that way! 30 Years of Garbage provides equal doses nostalgia and insight. You dont need to love the product to find this documentary compelling: who got screwed, who got sued, who won the war between the First Amendment, and Product Disparagement? But its also interesting because I see this fad repeating itself. My little nephew Brady is into something called Shopkins, which as far as I can tell, is a really stupid “toy”. Its a tiny rubber thing, shaped like some grocery store item, about the size of a pencil eraser. Hes got a bag of rice, and a bag of flour that looks almost identical to the bag of rice. How these are fun toys I have no idea. We usually pile them on Lightning McQueen and race. But Bradys own counter culture is already budding at 5 years old: Shopkins are parodied by the Grossery Gang, the same basic shitty toy, but disgusting (ie, mouldy cheese. I dont get it, but adults arent meant to. Its kind of cool that hes got his own little act of rebellion, but if youre in the mood for some throwback rebellion, heres a hint: the Garbage Pail Kids are back. 30 Years of Garbage is playing at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival this Sunday, May 7th, 5:30pm at Innis Town Hall. Joshy has planned a fun bachelor-party weekend away in Ojai, just him and his buddies celebrating his upcoming marriage with as much booze and drugs and strippers as time and space allows. Except Joshys fiancee commits suicide, and the weekends now been downgraded to just a “hangout” among friends. Only a few brave friends arrive, besides Joshy (Thomas Middleditch) stable Ari (Adam Pally) determined to keep things light, neurotic Adam (Alex Ross Perry) whose default mode is wet blanket, and Eric (Nick Kroll) the friend with coke and bad ideas. They pick up some hangers-on (Jenny Slate among them) and proceed to have a very weird weekend. How do men mourn and commiserate with their grieving friend? They mostly dont. They mostly tamp down their feelings in favour of whatever self-destructions close by. The film is largely improvised, making use of all the comedic chops, so the chemistry is crackling even if it feels like the plot goes absolutely nowhere. Its really about the presumption of our perceptions, and maybe the unknowability of people. The characters disclose things to each other, and expose themselves to us, but we dont come away really understanding them any better for it. Joshy has a really ephemeral quality to it, a sense that nothing can last, good or otherwise, and things will inevitably be left unsettled. This may be a comment on closure and its real-life attainability, and thats exactly when the movie feels the most honest. This was a humbly entertaining watch for me because I like these guys, but it wasnt exactly earth-shattering goodness. Its kind of a cross between a raunchy comedy and mumblecore, so take that admonition with the grain of salt it deserves. Should you tip the boy who brings you the telegram that says your son is dead? That dilemma and others covered in Ithaca, loosely based on William Saroyans The Human Comedy, which is not remotely funny. But it did give Meg Ryan some comfort when she was going through her divorce from Dennis Quaid, so what better material to use in her directorial debut? She plays the mother of sons, a hard thing to be in 1942; Marcus, who is off to war (played by Jack Quaid, Ryans actual son) Homer (Alex Neustaedter) who struggles with being the 14 year old man of the house now that his father (Tom Hanks) is gone, and little Ulysses (Spencer Howell) who doesnt remember anything different. This is really Homers story and the growing up he had to do. Hes such an exuberant kid at the start of the film, determined to be the best and fastest bike messenger in town. But 1942 means WW2, and WW2 means lots of devastating telegrams. How does it transform a 14 year old kid to deliver grief in an envelope? To witness the moment a woman is made a widow? To see a mother torn apart by pain? Thats pretty heavy stuff to be grappling with when youre also mooning over your first crush and taking your little brother down to the local fishing hole. It makes for a heightened existance, but its also just life for Homer, who has his own little odyssey to live. The film is a little under-achieving, a retread of themes weve seen elsewhere, and often. Sam Shepard has a pretty compelling role, which makes up for the very rare glimpses we get of Hanks. If it doesnt quite live up to its potential, its still bittersweet in its nostalgia, and tucked sufficiently at my heart strings. Meg Ryan hasnt hit it out of the ballpark on her first swing as director, but dont count her out. Margalit meets Eli on a bus and – zing! – for her, its love at first sight. He takes a little convincing, his head already crowded with ideas and responsibility. The catch in this little love story is that its Israel 1947. Things are…complicated. Eli (Avraham Aviv Alush) son of the second President of the State of Israel, lives on a kibbutz where he works all day every day. When Margalit (Adi Bielski) pursues him there, she finds that hes also helping the Palmach to smuggle Holocaust survivors into Palestine. This only makes her love him harder, but his reality is very different from hers, a drama student and theatre lover who is reluctant to give up a life of creativity. Her love is strong enough to make the necessary sacrifices, but the turbulent state of things in Israel means that love will not be enough to overcome all. This is the true story of the love affair between Pnina Gary (who contributes to the script) and Eli Ben-Zvi. The film sets this passionate love story amid the political turmoil of pre-state Israel. An Israeli Love Story makes its Canadian premiere as part of the Toronto Jewish Film Festival. Check below for dates and times – added bonus: director Dan Wolman will be in attendance. Through the presentation of international and Canadian films, the Festival aims to be both a window to and a mirror of Jewish culture.  The Festival strives to be inclusive of all aspects of the Toronto community, regardless of age, affiliation or income.  We undertake to show films for their contemporary, popular value, and for their ability to address the subject of Jewish identity.  That is, to be a Jewish Film Festival, and not a film festival for Jewish people. TJFF screenings for An Israeli Love Story: Thursday 11 May, 6:15 PM – Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema Saturday 13 May, 9:00 PM – Famous Players Canada Square 2 Shoe shiners: at the airport, a busy subway station, a kiosk in your local mall, even on the street corner. There they are, every day, providing a service to the people walking by. Yet this humble profession is often overlooked. Who goes into shoe shining, and why? Director Stacey Tenenbaum gives us a documentary that gives us the answers by putting us in the shoes of shiners around the world. Filming in cities as diverse as New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sarajevo, La Paz, and more, Shiners gives a good sense   of the universality of pride in ones work. However, it is also clear that the profession is not viewed the same from one country to the next. In America it is being reclaimed by hipsters who deride the neglect of older crafts. In Japan we see a lot of honour in the skill, in making something old new again. But in other places, its seen as degrading work, and the shiners work on the street, earning little money and even less respect. In that way, Tenebaum quietly addresses poverty and social justice without quite mentioning it directly. Shiners is a character-driven documentary, the shiners speaking for themselves. A mother of young children barely earns enough to feed her family; she refuses to be shamed for her position but insists that her children will be ‘professionals. Don, a. k. a. the shoe dude, working a street corner in Manhattan, has a vibrant personality. A former accountant and pastry chef, hes chosen shoe shining for the sense of freedom it gives him. He talks candidly about the racist connotations of shoe shining, and the satisfaction hes derived from telling “uppity people” their shoes are dirty. Shiners excels at providing an insiders view. It cracks the humanity wide open, and guarantees that youll never walk by these people without seeing them again. Post navigation.

The first episode of the American TV show made me recall something Gore Vidal once wrote: “Bad books on writing tell you to “WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW”, a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery. ” But actually, Gore Vidal didnt say that, Joe Haldeman did. So much for the accuracy of my memory. Anyhow, the first episode of The Slap is about Hector, a well-off liberal white guy with a great wife and kids and a 40th birthday party which he spends contemplating having an affair with his kids 16-year-old babysitter. But I knew that the premise of The Slap is that a guy slaps someone elses child in the first episode. So the only thing that made Hector interesting, to me, was that by the end of the episode he would do something completely uncharacteristic for someone of his personality and class position, and slap another persons child. But then it turned out that the slap wasnt delivered by him; it was delivered by his boorish right-wing stereotype cousin Harry. (I warned you thered be spoilers. So, in fact, there is absolutely nothing interesting about this dude in whose tedious P. O. V. Ive just spent forty minutes trapped. Anyhow, boorish right-wing stereotype Harry slaps the bratty, undisciplined child of self-righteous left-wing stereotypes Gary and Rosie. Id bet money the writers of the American The Slap are middle-of-the-road liberal Democrats, much like Hector. And its just… boring and annoying that their slapper is such a cartoon of right-wingers, and Gary and Rosie are such cartoons of social-justice types. This is the sort of Aaron Sorkinesque crap that makes me sympathize with Conservatives who call liberals smug condescending assholes. But I kept on watching, because a friend told me that the series features shifting points of view and seeing how different characters view the same events, and I love that kind of stuff. So I watched the second and third episodes, and they were better, largely because they werent in Hectors perspective. But then I found out that the Austrialian The Slap, on which the American The Slap is based, is available on Netflix. And I starting watching it, and you know what? Its MUCH better. In the Aussie version, Hector from the start is narcissistic and a bit of dick towards his family, which makes his interest in screwing the babysitter less out of the blue. Harry, while still arrogant, is apolitical rather than right-wing. Every female character is more three-dimensional and distinct than on the US version, and the relationship between lifelong friends Anouk, Aisha (Hectors wife) and Rosie is shown as being as central to this group of characters as that between cousins Hector and Harry. One notable difference is that everyone seems less friggin rich in the Aussie version. Its as if American TV producers just cant imagine a story being interesting if its not about rich people. Conclusion: If you like extended multi-protagonist narratives about how one bad decision can lead to a bunch of bad repercussions for a group of fairly lousy people, check out the Australian version of The Slap... Charles and I watched Dear White People, a crowdfunded indie movie, tonight. I enjoyed it; for a political movie about anti-black racism, it was surprisingly UN-idealogical, as all the main characters ended up having to shift away from pat ideologies at one point or another. In fact, if theres an underlying ideology in this film, its the directors beliefs that Black peoples stories are interesting and worth telling. The actors were fine (lead actress Tessa Thompson, from Veronica Mars, was especially good. The story wasnt the greatest; the script was sometimes self-indulgent (the movie theater bit was out of character and felt like sketch comedy) and the supporting characters felt more like plot drivers than characters. But the central four characters were all fun to watch, and the films refusal to accept simple answers to anything was refreshing. Passes the Bechdel test by a hair – there are two lead female characters, and they talk at least once about something other than a man. But although two of the four lead characters are female, theres a default-male trap that the director falls into; every significant supporting character in this movie is male. I love low-budget sci-fi that has to rely more on a clever script than on special effects. I also love time travel movies. So no surprise I watched Time Lapse, a low-budget suspense movie about three roommates who discover that a camera pointed at their living room window takes pictures of what will be going on in their apartment 24 hours in the future. The writers are clearly Hitchcock fans; the characters try to use the camera to take control of their lives (by getting wealthy by betting on sports, for example) but very quickly it seems as if the camera might be controlling them instead, and things spiral out of control. The plot gets enjoyably convoluted, seemingly irrelevant details from early in the film turn out to be crucial, and disaster looms. I enjoyed it. The comparison to Hitchcock doesnt do Time Lapse any favors. No one can expect first-time filmmakers on a tiny budget to be able to approach Hitchcocks stunning cinematography, but watching this made me appreciate how expert Hitchcock was at making characters distinct and full of blood and nuance, even when theyre just there to drive the plot along. That doesnt happen here. And sure, these actors arent Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly, but neither the script or direction gives the actors a chance to play full characters. Also, from a feminist perspective, this movie isnt offensive, but it sure aint great – the one major female characters participation in the plot is mostly kissing one boy or the other, and her love life seems to be her only interest. So: A fun time-travel thriller, but one that is probably too flat to be memorable. I liked it, but I bet their next movie will be better. Im pretty sure this fails the Bechdel test. There are only two female characters (one very minor) and theyre never on screen together. I watched Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast with the girls (Maddox and Sydney, now aged 9 and 11. First of all, gotta say this for the Tinker Bell series of movies – a Disney powerhouse that mostly stays below the radar but is hugely profitable – every Tinker Bell movie passes the Bechdel test with flying colors. But this newest installment in the franchise is definitely tenser, darker and more gut-wrenching than the previous Tinker Bell movies (not a very high bar to clear, admittedly. It was really good! The animation was good enough to be expressive and enjoyable, and to bring in some good visuals (but very basic! Dont expect any million-dollar “Brave” hair animation here) and grown-ups will find the story familiar. But sometimes its fun to watch a well-done version of a familiar tale! And the character design of the NeverBeast – borrowing from both Where The While Things Are and Studio Ghibli, I think – is gorgeous (the spiral patterns on its fur work really well when animated. Id recommend that anyone with a 7-12 year old friend sit down and watch this with them. Especially animal lovers. But if your friend (or you) is susceptible to tear-jerkers, youd best have tissues handy for the ending. Trivia: Tinks voice actor, Mae Whitman, was also the voice of Katara in “Avatar: The Last Airbender, ” and played Ann Veal on “Arrested Development”, so if her choice of roles say anything about her she must be a neat person. Speaking of time travel narratives, Ive been rewatching the two seasons of Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles. A very underrated show that started out well and got smarter and deeper as it went along; I wish it had lasted longer, although at least the second season ends at a decent story-ending point. Another easy Bechdel-test passer, although I wish there had been more than two significant non-white characters. I saw the most recent Hobbit movie. Helped, perhaps, by my ultra-low expectations, I had fun. It was pretty, the landscapes were very pretty, the special effects were nice, a great group of actors, some of the fight scenes were well done in American blockbuster style. It didnt feel as bloated and annoying as the second Hobbit movie. It was all very… competent. If you enjoy seeing expert setbuilding and makeup and costuming, theres a lot to enjoy here. But what a steep decline from how good the Lord of the Rings movies were (and those were far from perfect. It did pass the Bechdel test, perhaps, but only barely – the Elf lady may have spoken to the little human girls about fleeing the burning city while they were, well, fleeing the burning city. Lots of “oh, the cowardly male character is wearing a dress, how hilarious” humor that stopped being funny sometime in the 1990s, I think. So what have you watched lately.

This is a very informational and educational show and group of people. Thanks for doing what you are doing. How can they talk like everything would fall apart if the illegal aliens were deported, when we have millions upon millions of people around the world willing to immigrate here legally. Migrant demands. WHAT ARE THOSE. Migrant dilemme w9. Migrant demands 50000. Worldwide, more than 70 million people are currently forcibly displaced, according to the UN's refugee agency UNHCR. Among them, 25, 9 million are refugees. They have fled war, conflict, persecution, political oppression, climate change and disasters in search of safety for them and their families. Faced with conflicts from Syria and Yemen to CAR and South Sudan; violent rebellions and climate disaster across the Sahel; persecution in Myanmar and Eritrea; economic collapse in Venezuela; drugs and violence in Colombia and Mexico; desperation and poverty in Afghanistan; and state collapse in Libya, thousands risk it all daily in search of asylum abroad. As the number of refugees increases, the rise of anti-immigrant sentiment has risen along with it. Across the Western world, right-wing political rhetoric has found a new home. Meanwhile, in host countries across the world, communities of refugees are working to make new lives in different places. Some assimilate more easily, finding homes and welcoming neighbours, while others struggle, living for generations in refugee camps without official recognition or basic services. Every year on June 20, the UN aims to shine a light on the plight of those fleeing out of desperation - people Al Jazeera has met and long documented in our attempt to tell the stories of those most affected by crises. This year for World Refugee Day, we revisit some of our best films to shine a light on the lives of refugees across the globe. Welcome to Italy: Migrant Tales of Survival For years now, migrants have embarked on the dangerous sea crossing over the Mediterranean to reach what they perceive to be better and safer shores in Europe. Italy has been one of the principal destinations. But when asylum seekers arrive, they don't always find the life they were hoping for. In this film, we meet three young North Africans who survived the hazardous journey to Italy only to find their European dreams in tatters. The Mothers of Rinkeby: Last Night in Sweden In Stockholm, deaths linked to crime and gang violence have affected communities, including the neighbourhood of Rinkeby. Despite being one of Sweden's most socially and economically vulnerable areas, police presence there is rare. Disappointed by the lack of systems in place to help protect Rinkeby, a group of super mums - Somali mothers and grandmothers - have set up weekly night patrols to help prevent crime in the area. Every Friday and Saturday night, they put on their orange jackets and walk through the community in groups of two or three, passing areas where young people are known to sell drugs, in the hope of deterring them from a life of crime and violence. When Time Stopped At Sea Between 2014 and 2017, more than 12, 000 refugees died or went missing in the Mediterranean Sea. A year before Al Jazeera met Iraqi Jamal al-Dalemey, his youngest son had vanished without a trace. Equipped with the skills he gained from Saddam Hussein's secret service, Jamal embarked on a journey to reconstruct his son's last-known steps. The search took him from Turkey to Greece, while the rest of his family considered an offer of relocation to Europe. Gambia: Back Home The Gambia is one of Africa's smallest, most impoverished countries. In recent years, the number of youth leaving in search of prosperity has soared. Thousands have sought refuge in Europe; tragically, many died along the way, while others who have made it struggled in the face of racism, discrimination and increasingly tough EU regulations. Now some of these migrants have returned home, deeply traumatised by the experience, and determined to discourage others from following the same path. Libya: The Migrant Trap More than two years after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, People & Power travelled to Libya where thousands of refugees and economic migrants - many dreaming of a better life in Europe - were caught up en route in the crisis-torn country. Despite Libya being in the midst of social, political and economic chaos, migrants, especially from sub-Saharan Africa, flooded there in search of new opportunities or passage across the Mediterranean. But a different reality awaits them on arrival. For many, Tripoli was a dead end. Heavily armed and often competing militias controlled much of the capital; many migrants found themselved detained in unsafe, difficult conditions. Syria: No Strings In the early years of Syria's civil war, many of the small towns on the Turkish side of the border were inundated with refugees fleeing the conflict. In Kilis in 2013, there were some 40, 000 Syrian refugees, most of whom were children. In the town, teachers tried to help children cope with the trauma of war, as many had faced agonising hardships. In this film, we met young Mohamad, Noor and Farid. All three had lived through different refugee experiences, but were unified by a struggle that does not normally make the headlines - the battle to regain their childhood. Shooting Hope In 2010, before the start of the Syrian war, the majority of refugees living in Lebanon were Palestinian. In Southern Lebanon, Ain el-Hilweh was the largest camp housing Palestinian refugees in the country. A decade ago when this film was made, military checkpoints guarded the camp's entry points, and the Palestinian community inside rarely engaged with the Lebanese one on the outside. In this film, we hear the story of an extraordinary project that brought together Palestinian and Lebanese teenagers who usually live their lives on different sides of the divide. Through photography, we get a glimpse into how they see their lives as they navigate between the religious, ethnic and political divisions that scar the country. Asylum In America Imran, a Rohingya refugee from Myanmar, and his Iranian friend, Amir met on Manus Island - the migrant detention hub they were held at after fleeing their homelands in search of sanctuary in Australia. But unlike many others, the island was not their final destination. Now, they are both forging new lives in North America - Imran in Chicago and Amir in Canada. Filmed over 18 months, 101 East documents the jubilation and challenges the men experience as they navigate their newfound freedom. Brides and Brothels: The Rohingya Trade Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya girls and women fled Myanmar to escape a military crackdown in 2017. Thousands survived rape and the slaughter of their families. Now in Bangladesh 's refugee camps, they thought they would be safe. But inside the tents that house almost a million refugees, women and girls are being bought, sold and given away. In this film, we meet vulnerable Rohingya women and investigate the dangers they still face as people seek to exploit them. Bajamar Ballad For years, a group of 25, 000 Afro-Colombian refugees and migrants lived in a town on stilts over the sea at the edge of Buenaventura on Colombia's Pacific coast - until the Colombian government planned to relocate the entire community to an inland barrio so that it could develop a commercial port and tourist beaches. In 2011, when this film was made, community leaders tried to resist the eviction and fight for compensation, to push back against a move that would rob residents of their homes and their main livelihood - fishing. To rally for the cause, activist Benildo Estupinan organised local musicians and singers to hold concerts, rallies and to record songs in defence of their homes and lives. The Ban: The human cost of Trump's travel ban A week after Donald Trump became president of the United States in 2017, he signed an order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries including Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The ban also affected refugees, many in urgent need of resettlement. As the new directive created organisational chaos within US immigration, airport arrival halls across the country filled up with thousands who came to protest against the ban, helping to prompt the legal movement to overturn it. In this film, Fault Lines reported from the front lines of the so-called "Muslim ban" meeting families separated across borders, and refugees whose lives may never be the same again.

Migrate filemaker. Migrant demand 50000 fact. Thank you for this excellent, well-balanced video on immigration patterns. At some point in recent history, I thought it would be a good idea to sit down and watch every single Mary-Kate and Ashley movie and then determine which twin had the better storyline. Why? Who cares. I hunted them down, watched them, analyzed them, and now, Im here with my findings. The rules were simple. I looked into which twin had the better plot, including character personality and the values of which boys they ended up with (if they even ended with one. Because the majority of these movies feature casts under the age of eighteen, this list cannot be called “which twin got the hotter guy in each Mary-Kate and Ashley movie. ” However, the love interests are still analyzed by their personalities/plots, since they are major characters. READ ALSO:  These bedgy swimsuits are going to get you through Coachella My list begins with “Passport to Paris, ” which was their first ‘true destination film, and ends with “New York Minute, ” their final movie. “Passport to Paris” isnt the first movie the twins did together, but I wast about to include “How the West Was Fun” or “Billboard Dad” on this rating. Since you cant screenshot a VHS and this is a recession where we cant afford to pay for everything on Amazon, these were watched via the help of our good friend, semi-illegal-Internet-streaming-site. The quality may be poor, but the memories are crystal clear. 1. PASSPORT TO PARIS (1999) Dualstar Productions Plot The twins are in seventh grade, yet already possess better fashion tastes than me, a college graduate. They also go to parties three days in a row, since you can do that when youre young. Anyway, the twins have to spend their spring break in Paris with their stingy grandfather (whos also the US ambassador to France) instead of going to their spring fling dance. Mary-Kate Character: Melanie Dude: Michel No lie, the twins are essentially the same person for the first third of the movie. Like, to the point where I had to Wikipedia which twin was which (my initial guess was wrong. Since they had the exact same personalities, it really didnt matter that I couldnt tell them apart. Melanies guy wears a bucket hat and turtleneck during a day date, and also plays in a band. His dad wants him to give up his band to take over the family business, which is wild because hes deadass 14. Michel wears black the entire movie, which is either because hes French or goth. Ashley Character: Ally Dude: Jean Ashleys guy completely loses his shit at a restaurant and yells at a waiter because he wont put ketchup on the side, which I guess is supposed to be sweet in 1999, but is impeccably douchey in literally every other year. Like, I get the sentiment, but he didnt have to physically stand up and yell. At the end of the movie, I learned that Jean is also in Michels band. Finding this detail changed absolutely nothing. Winner Melanies bucket-hat wearing French lover. Theres no resolution to neither Jean nor Michels plotlines: the movie ends with Melanie and Ally choosing to do homework instead of hanging out with two boys from their hometown. Like, Jean and Michel truly had no significant impact on their lives. I guess they saw how bad all of their options really were and realized men aint shit! Best Outfit: 2. OUR LIPS ARE SEALED (2000) After witnessing a jewel heist and being threatened by a madman, the twins and their parents join the Witness Protection Program. After blowing 97. 3% of their covers, theyre sent to Australia, where their parents inexplicably own an inn. The girls spend their time Down Under trying not to blow their covers and, like, being 14. Character: Maddie Dude: Pete Pete…exists? Hes just there. I genuinely dont know if I can write more than three sentences about the guy. Pete is nice? A surfer? Australian? Character: Abby Dude: Avery Ashleys skin looked damn good in this movie. Yeah, this movie looks like it was filmed with a broken camera, but homegirls skin is clearly glistening throughout. Anyway, I genuinely didnt know Averys name until 44:36 into this cinematic masterpiece. But, I do remember the majority of Averys lines, which included gems like, “Surfing is more than a sport: its a life, ” and “Its not just a sport: its an art form. ” To her credit, Abby genuinely looks like shes in pain every time Avery speaks, and she pretty much flat out says shes only into him because hes cute. Averys dad owns an amusement park, which is only interesting enough to get mentioned once during the whole movie. Ashley. She knew her man aint shit, but she slid in there anyway and presumably got out with her heart unscathed. Icon. 3. WINNING LONDON (2001) In a shocking turn of events, Mary-Kate gets to play the smarter, staunchier twin for once. The girls go to London to compete in an international Model UN competition, and its actually the central plot in the movie. Yes, they fall in love, but theyre really into Model UN. Winning London also has at least two (2) people of color speaking at least three (3) lines each, which is a major milestone in this movie franchise. Its the little things! Character: Chloe Dude: James First, James is played by actual actor Jesse Spencer. Lets not look past that. Anyway, James is kinda a lil bitch – he could not handle Chloe beating him at polo. Granted, she did act like a sore winner, but still. Chloe warned him from the very beginning that she was extra as hell and he chose to shoot his shot anyway, so its really all his fault. Chloe actually had to get (fake) held hostage in order to apologize to James sorry ass (I wasnt kidding, they were REALLY into Model UN. On the positive side, Chloe is smart af. Yes, shes more than willing to throw her intelligence away for a rich dude shes known for three days, but shes still the only reason her team made it to London in the first place. Character: Riley Dude: Bryan Bryan only sees Riley as his moms best friends daughter. Riley is pretty much Taylor Swift in the “You Belong With Me” music video. She seriously joins her schools Model UN team just so she can go to London and convince Bryan to love her. I mean, yeah, helping her sister also had a role in it, but thats not the point. My girl had it bad. When her and Brian finally get together (spoiler alert, but its for your own good) they do so IN AN AIR DUCT while trying to save their fellow Model UN members from a mock HOSTAGE SITUATION. Romance cant get more badass than that. Ashley, based solely on the scene of her in the air ducts with Bryan. IS THIS NOT PEAK ROMANCE? Worst Outfit: HOLIDAY IN THE SUN (2001) This cinematic masterpiece has  everything: smuggling, romance, bucket hats, fish in a blender, a young Megan Fox, main characters serving jail time, the iconic girl group Play, and [allegedly] parents who are also swingers. I dont know who read this script and was like, “Get me a camera, STAT, ” but Im glad they did. Heres the main plot – the twins are mad that their dad made them go to the Bahamas instead of Hawaii. V inconsiderate, Mom and Dad. How will they survive? Character: Madison Dude: Griffin Much like “Winning London, ” its now time for Mary-Kates character to fall in love with a family friend. That family friend happens to be Griffin, who makes the face above essentially the entire movie. Griffin loves Madison, but shes not here for that. Instead, she goes horseback riding on a beach with some dude whos Not Griffin* because they are [Lady Gaga voice] caught in a bad romance. After the date, Madison, totally misreading the room, immediately goes and tells Griffin that shes in love with Not Griffin. This sends Real Griffin into a tailspin that lasts the majority of the movie. By the time Madison and Real Griffin get together, no one cares. Theres too much other shit going on. Sorry. ( Not Griffins name is actually Scott, which I learned after watching the movie. Not Griffin just suits him better. ) Character: Alex Dude: Jordan I dont even know where to start on Alex and Jordan. On their first date, they feed the stingrays at Jordans aquarium job, where Alex not-so-subtly says things like, “So, they just suck on you? ” and, “Its sucking on me! ” Okay, girl, we see you. Megan Fox is also somehow in this movie, playing a rich girl named Briana. Alex and Briana fight over Jordan by fucking with his work schedule because they dont care about him getting fired. Alls fair in love and capitalism. Oh, by the way: Jordans an antique smuggler with no defined age, who also seemingly lacks a family and spends half of the movie in jail. So, theres that. The other half of Jordans screentime comes from him singing Alex a long-ass song he wrote for her, while she sits in the audience and makes this face: And they say love is dead. Ashley. Under no circumstance would I ever recommend one of my friends date someone like Jordan. He “accidentally” smuggled precious antiques? Yeah, okay, sure. But, in the context of this movie, Jordan is by far the most interesting character. He created so much confusion. No one bailed him out of jail. Like, no one. Why didnt anyone bail him out? Half the people on the island were in love with him but he still had to sit in a cell? It be ya own smuggling crew. Play performing their Grammy-snubbed single, “Us Against The World. ” READ ALSO:   How this Arkansas girl got the boujie-est NYC social media job ever 4. GETTING THERE (2002) All of the characters in this movie are insufferable. I wish happiness upon none of them. Anyway, the twins just turned sixteen and theyre trying to get to the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Sounds promising, right? Well, its not. Its awful. The hijinks are nauseating. At one point they do migrant labor as a bit because apparently thats funny? Its funny enough to be a running joke? I hate this movie. Character: Kylie Dude: Sam Three minutes into the movie, Sam tries to put a move on Kylie and shes like ‘nah. This happens about four other times because the dude cannot take a hint. She literally rejects him in multiple states, but he keeps shooting his shot. Bro, if she wont date you in California, shes not going to date you in Nevada or Utah either. Nevertheless, he persisted, as if he thought that hell trip was going to make her like him any more. It didnt. I hate him. Character: Taylor Dude: Alex/Danny I spent the majority of the movie believing Taylor and Alex were a thing, only to figure out more than halfway through that they werent. Whoops. Taylor was the only one who really, truly wanted to go to the Olympics, but only because she wanted to see some hot skier. Alex is essentially just a placeholder. Taylor spends the majority of the movie pissed off because her dumbass friends cant keep it together long enough to make it to Utah. Thats Alex, the Olympic skiier who Ashley has a crush on. She thinks hes cute. This is the best picture of him I can find. You do you, sis. The sweet release of death. Or, Ashley, solely because the guy she was into had less lines. It gives me less time to hate him. Mary-Kates bag, not the outfit itself. 5. WHEN IN ROME (2002) My options for watching this movie were either dropping a small down payment to get it off of iTunes or to watch it for free online, but with Greek subtitles constantly running. I can write three words in Greek now. Anyway, the girls are interns at an entertainment. company in Italy. Unfortunately, they suck at their jobs and get fired. Fortunately, they get hired again, and then become really good at their jobs. Everyones always oddly chill about getting fired while in a foreign country, but thats the beauty of a Mary-Kate and Ashley film. Theres a whole subplot in this movie about workplace sexual harassment. The boss in “When In Rome” is in love on one of his employees who was his intern 11 years ago. Like, he talks about how he had to “keep his distance” because its inappropriate for them to have a thing now that shes his subordinate/was once his intern. But hes liked her since her internship days? This all takes place while one of the other employees is hitting on the former intern, even though shes totally not into it (no one ever stands up for her, by the way. A scenario of this caliber would cause quite the discourse in 2018, but we dont have to get into that here. Character: Charli Dude:  Paolo Paolo is an unmotivated jerk who seems to have a preoccupation with unintentionally getting Charli fired so they can spend more time together, until two-thirds through the movie when its revealed he wants to be a chef. And, magically, Im suddenly totally okay with Paolo after watching him make pizza. Character: Leila Dude: Ryan Ryan is also an unmotivated, materialistic tool who seems to have a preoccupation with letting everyone know how big of an unmotivated, materialistic tool he is. Ryan manages to get his shit together by the time the whole thing ends, but at what cost? Hes still awful, hes just now motivated at being awful. Leilas probably the most capable of the interns, which is why her boss (Ryans uncle) wants her to convince Ryan to get his shit together. First, Ryan is just shallow enough to clean up his act solely so a girl could possibly like him, and second, Leila literally gets nothing out of this. I mean, yeah, shes a nice person, but when you get fired from your internship twice, you clearly have other things you need to focus on. Mary-Kate. Ashleys whole time in Italy just seems stressful af. However, its worth noting how this is another movie where the underlying message is that men aint shit. Ashleys dude literally flies across the world to help her out and shes still like “Thats nice, but Im never going to have romantic feelings for you. ” Which is fair, since her guy wasnt shit. Thats rapidly becoming a theme in these movies. 6. THE CHALLENGE (2003) Watching this in whats considered standard definition by modern standards felt like it was in the highest of high definition. Mary-Kate and Ashley play estranged twins who sign up for a reality show in order to compete for college scholarships. They dont know the other is going to be there, so they get cast for ratings. How nice. Theres literally only two rules for the contestants: curfew at 10pm and “no romantic entanglements. ” Like, these are a bunch of teenagers in Mexico competing on a reality show and those are the only rules. I guess there are probably more, but theyre never mentioned. The Challenge also has POC minor characters, but they enforce negative stereotypes. Its a start! Character: Shane Dude: Adam Not gonna lie to you guys, I didnt write a single thing about Adam down in my notes. Now, Im stuck relying on screenshots in order to piece together whatever plot him and Shane had. Shane was the boho-chic twin, and Mary-Kate seemed to readily immerse herself into the role. Her beachy waves and cotton tunics were out there living their fullest lives. Her love interest, Adam, was also a contestant on The Challenge. I think he was supposed to be the jock? They werent supposed to date (see: Rule No. 1 of 2) but they did. Oh, to be young and rebellious! Character: Lizzie Dude: Marcus Literally my only notes for Ashleys character in this movie were, “This bitch really out here ordering a rare-ass steak in Mexico. Like, sis. ” So, thats how her plot was going. Marcus is fine, I guess. He has the exact same haircut as this boy I dont like, which didnt win him any points in my book. The ~dilemma~ lies in how Marcus works for the show the twins are competing on, and hes obviously not supposed to be romancing the cast. He does anyway, and everything seemed to work out in his favor. Good for him. Really, though, Ashleys character went to Mexico and ordered a rare steak. This shouldve been a bigger plot point instead of something so haphazardly glossed over. Were her intestines okay? This one is honestly a draw. Like, I dont know. I dont have strong feelings about either character. “The Challenge” isnt a horrible movie, but I couldnt find all that much to say about it. Ya girl was out here looking up cattle regulations in a separate window while the movie was playing. You can choose your own winner here, based on the limited amount of information Ive provided you. Mary-Kate and Ashleys skin. Also, some of the old love interests from past movies show up at the end of “The Challenge. ” Its actually really cute, if you want to check it out yourself. 7. NEW YORK MINUTE (2004) As the only * Mary-Kate and Ashley movie to make it to the big screen, the standards were exceptionally high. And by that, I mean there was nice cinematography, celebrity cameos, and the craft services table probably had better food. Everything else was essentially the same as their other movies. In “New York Minute, ” Mary-Kate and Ashley play squabbling siblings who have to work together to save the day. Theres more to it than that, but, honestly, do you even care? The 1995 family comedy “It Takes Two” was a theatrical release, but I respect that movie too much to include it with these other productions. ) Character: Roxy Dude: Trey Roxy is the family fuck-up, but she also seems to be the only one having any fun, like, ever, so I guess its worth the title. Roxy is living her truest life throughout this movie. Ditching school, going to a Simple Plan concert, dressing like Avril Lavigne – the girl had it all. Roxy basically gets everything she wants, while also having minimal character growth.  There are moments which imply she learns the error of her ways, but did she, really? She also hooks up with Jared Padalecki, whose character has a name that I dont know. See? FULLEST LIFE. READ ALSO:  We recreated Paris Hiltons iconic 2000s party pics Character: Jane Dude: Jim Jane is awful. Im sure there are people like that in real life, but, like, cant relate! I was super hype the first time Jim came on screen because he remotely resembles Chad Michael Murray at first glance. Unfortunately, I quickly realized Jim was not CMM at all, and instead was just a dude with a bike. Like, Jims whole identity revolves around his bike. His name on IMDb is legit listed as “Jim, The Bike Messenger. ” He runs into Jane a lot, which is great for fans of serendipity, but for everyone else its more of “get out of the way? ” Mary-Kate, and its NOT because I think Jared Padalecki attractive (because I dont. She just got the better end of the deal. Jane had severe anxiety and was struggling the entire movie. No one is envious of that. I know these looks are controversial, but I did not sit through 15+ hours of direct-to-video movies for yall to have that debate right now. Now, what do you guys think? Who wins overall.

YouTube. Really wanna see more from this. Didnt know it wasnt earth until the very end. Robin Williams talks to Maria Conchita Alonso in a scene from “Moscow On The Hudson, ” one of the. most interesting movies ever made about immigration. (Photo by Columbia Pictures/Getty Images) Its not surprising many filmmakers have viewed immigration as a rich source of storytelling. To explore this topic, I have put together a list of the 10 Most Interesting Immigration Movies of All-Time. None of the films on this list are only about immigration but all use it to explore sad, funny or dramatic events. Opinions may differ, of course, but these films each use immigration in interesting ways to entertain, deliver a message or simply tell a good story. There are no spoilers below. Those looking for the subgenre of immigrants and crime can check out Scarface and The Godfather Part II. 10. A Better Life (2011. An immigrant here illegally attempts to earn a living and reconnect with his son. Why its interesting: The movie dramatizes what many policymakers and commentators on immigration forget – people will do almost anything and take almost any risk for the sake of their children. 9. In America (2002. Loosely based on director Jim Sheridans life, Irish immigrants come to New York and it doesnt look like they are here legally. Why its interesting: The film shows that European immigrants face many of the same challenges as immigrants from other parts of the world. It is one of the few films to show immigration to America from a childs perspective. 8. The Big Sick (2017. Written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, and based on their real-life romance, The Big Sick tells the story of a stand-up comic, born in Pakistan, who alienates his family by falling in love with an American-born woman. Why its interesting: The movie deals with what can be the most important decision in a persons life – who (or whether) we will marry. In the case of immigrants – and sometimes natives – that decision carries the risk of losing ones family if parents disapprove of marrying outside the familys religion or culture. The Big Sick is also one of the few mainstream movies in America to depict the life of a Muslim immigrant. Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, husband and wife co-writers of “The Big Sick. ” (Vince. Talotta/Toronto Star via Getty Images) 7. Avalon (1990. This story of a Jewish immigrant family starts in the early part of the 20th century and portrays their struggles to succeed in an American culture that over time seems to place a different value on family. Years before Elijah Wood starred in The Lord of the Rings, he played a boy in the movie Avalon who listens to his immigrant grandfather tell the story of arriving in Baltimore on the Fourth of July. Why its interesting: Much like Namesake, Avalon dramatizes the tension between the old and the new but in a time period few Americans today remember. 6.  Namesake (2006. Based on the novel by Jhumpa Lahiri, a young Indian couple builds a life and raises a family in America. Why its interesting: The tension in the film between immigrants and their children raised in the U. S. mirrors real-life dramas that play out daily across America. Similar themes are present in the U. K. -based film Bend It Like Beckham. 5.  Well-Founded Fear (2000. A documentary by filmmakers Shari Robertson and Michael Camerini (see below) that depicts the process of asylum decision-making through the eyes of both government officers and the individuals who are interviewed in an attempt to obtain asylum in the United States. Why its interesting: “ Well-Founded Fear grew out of the idea of a series shot around the world about refugees and migration after the fall of the Berlin wall, ” Michael Camerini told me in an interview. “We discovered the world was here, and we could tell that story from inside the INS Asylum offices. We sat in on 50 cases, then filmed an additional 50 cases. Its the only time independent filmmakers have ever been able to document the process. ” The film contains this quote from an asylum officer: “Thats what this job is about. You make a decision about peoples futures. ” Farida, an Algerian mother, recounted the fear that led her to flee to America and seek asylum in. the groundbreaking documentary “Well-Founded Fear. ” The Epidavros Project 4.  Gran Torino (2008. Clint Eastwood plays a gruff old man who sees his life and neighborhood change. The film features the classic line “Get off my lawn. ” Why its interesting: The near-perfect script shows Eastwood getting involved in the lives of his Hmong neighbors in a surprising way. Actor Bee Vang, actor-director Clint Eastwood and actress Ahney Her at the premiere of the film. “Gran Torino. ” (Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images) 3.  District 9 (2009. At its core, the movie is about ones ability to empathize with someone different from ourselves. “The scenes at the beginning of the film featuring poor local residents who advocate killing ‘them, burning their businesses, and kicking them out were based on actual footage from the year before in which real people rather than actors were talking about the immigrants in their communities – not the extraterrestrial crustaceans, ” according to Sasha Polakow-Suranksy, author of Go Back To Where You Came From. Why its interesting: One of the only science fiction movies ever made where the aliens come not as invaders ( Independence Day) or as a lonely individual ( E. T. but as a large group of refugees. People in line to attend the South African premiere of the 2009 movie “District 9, ” which tells the. story of a group of alien refugees who land in South Africa. (Photo by Foto24/Gallo Images/Getty Images) 2.  Moscow on the Hudson (1984. Robin Williams plays a Soviet musician who defects – in a department store – during the Cold War and encounters other immigrants who find the road to the American Dream can be bumpy. The film earns bonus points for reciting part of the Declaration of Independence and the oath used in naturalization ceremonies. Why its interesting: It would be difficult to find a more conservative, pro-American movie – if one defines conservatism as Ronald Reagan did, that America is a special place where anyone, regardless of place of birth, can live free in a land of opportunity and be welcomed. 1.  How Democracy Works Now (2010. “Without question How Democracy Works Now is the best documentary film series on government ever produced. There is nothing even close, ” I wrote in an earlier article. The series of 12 films by Shari Robertson and Michael Camerini is based on 1, 500 hours of footage – the equivalent of more than 187 8-hour days. It shows immigration battles in and out of Congress and local fights in Iowa and Arizona. Why its interesting: As I wrote previously, “Viewers are inside the room as key Senate staffers meet with one another and their Senators to craft legislation. We are there when advocacy groups across the ideological spectrum meet with Senators and Congressional staff. In short, viewers go where they have never gone before. ” The late Senator Ted Kennedy with his key legislative aide Esther Olavarria. Esther is featured. prominently in the 12-part documentary "How Democracy Works Now. " The Epidavros Project.
