26 Oct 2013

Diwali (The festival of lights) is a five-day Hindu festival, the biggest of all Hindus holidays. Each of the four days is separated by different traditions with its own tale, legend and myth to tell.
Its origin can be traced back to ancient India; however, there are various legends pointing to the origin of Diwali.
One week before, Hindus from South Africa have a colorful float procession in the streets to announce the Festival of Diwali and share their traditions with other communities. Local and international cultural entertainments are brought to the visitors during a fair at the Old Durban Drive-In.

Saleh Abdallah al-Raymi has been a labourer in the capital Sanaa since the age of seven. But his is, unfortunately, not an extraordinary case. He's one of more than a million child labourers in Yemen, and the numbers are increasing as the country is plunging deeper into its political and financial crisis.

A worker's life
Yemen Trim
By Osama.Khaled
11 Sep 2013

This film was produced in 2009, and is the first experience of a young man in the age of 17 in documentary filmmaking depending on a household camera and self-effort. This film tells the story of child labor and cleaning worker's problems. Since 2009 & now we are in the end of 2012, not much has changed for this worker, who only if stops performing his work, we notice the vast difference that we don't sense it unless its gone, & our streets have been witnessing such events from the beginning of this year with the cleaning workers' strikes.
The stated rights for cleaning worker's are many, but in reality they do not exist.
This film was produced to attract more attention to the obstacles and problems faced by the cleaning workers especially children and search for solutions, and it does not have any political bias.
The producer hopes that this film will be advantaged from the information in it and allows it to be used for humanitarian purposes only.

Special thanks to the musician Ahmed al-Shibh, who allowed the use of his music in the film, and to everyone who contributed in the success of this work.

A grandmother and her grandson are sitting next to a wall in a slum in Dhaka. As more and more women are working in factories to raise money for the familiy, grandmothers are taking care of children.

Space is scarce in Dhaka, Bangladesh’s vibrant capital. So is money. An estimated number of more than 10 million people live in Dhaka, making it one of the world’s most populated cities. Poor neighborhoods, by western definitions called slums, are continuously growing. The space next to railway tracks has long been occupied by numerous makeshift homes.

Adulée par les touristes indiens et étrangers grâce à ses plages et à sa quiétude, la presqu’île de Diu abrite également le petit port de pêche de Vanakbara à son extrémité ouest. Entre la réparation des filets de pêche et des bateaux, le triage et le séchage des poissons à même le sol, chacun s’affaire à la tâche.
