    Is this because of global warming?

    February 12, 2010 // No Comments »

    David and Rejao have been working everyday in my home on editing and finishing the final work of the Study trip. In Iceland and Norway we did not want to spend to much time in front of the computer editing, but use time to collect material and experience. Here in Maputo we have also been collecting interesting material to join with the material from the north.

    Here above are some photos from the beach on the way to Costa do Sol. The sea is destroying the trees and the road in one place. Is this because of global warming? We hope to interview professor John Hatton, a specialist in environmental affairs, and we will ask him about this situation by the coast.

    Dagmar Duportail, a Belgian film maker, has been so helpful to come around today to give the interested students a crash course in the two software programs that are really needed for film and animation. Poor Dagmar landed in walking into Nucleo last Sunday and met me and now he is badly involved in helping out. Here is a picture from our ‘home’

    There is so much activity, now post-production of the documentary material and many other projects that our home has become (actually always has been) a confusion of cables and old computer hardware. Not much is new, but the great new iMacs that Jonni arranged are though here still until the medialab in ENAV will be ready. (see previous blog)

    PROTEST GIVES SPIRIT TO MAPUTO

    // No Comments »

    Helgi Hóseason in Maputo.

    In our street a lone man has set up protest banners, adding them one by one during the days and last night I saw him sleeping on the pavement protecting his statements. The phrases are intelligent and about current issues. In Iceland we had for years one protester like this, who recently passed away. Now there has been discussion about whether the city should not erect a statue of Helgi. This man seems of a similar genre, friends have explained that he moves about and sets up these protest stands around the city. I find the act really beautiful and it is great to stop and read and think
