"War Diary " A documentary by Marc Wiese with Carsten Stormer "

"I am an eyewitness. The chronicler of a war. Everything that you will see, I have experienced myself.
"5 years, 15 thousand takes, a film From 2012 to 2017, German reporter Carsten Stormer documented the war in Syria, creating the cinematic diary of an almost hopeless conflict."

"Stormer experiences the brutality, but also the heroic courage of the people. A former teacher becomes editor-in-chief of a resistance newspaper. She smuggles cartoons against Assad through the regime's checkpoints. At first, the white helmets dig people out of the rubble without a helmet or spade. Agir, the PKK Kurd, is cooking chicken with potatoes. Suddenly the IS attacks. Agir runs out, 10 minutes war. Then Agir continues cooking. We experience the absurdity of the conflict. Carsten Stormer is always there and films hundreds of hours. And does not know what price he has to pay for it."

A production of IFAGE in coproduction with WDR in cooperation with ARTE supported by the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW.

I have observed that wild birds still have been hunt, sold and trafficked on the streets in some remote provinces, and nearby Phnom Penh. It recalls my unforgettable childhood memories. I liked hunting with a slingshot using clay balls bullets. Being an effective shooter, I was popular among friends in my village. More often, I and my friends went through the forest searching for a big tree where those big birds live, nest, lay eggs and nurture. We hid and waited, and joyfully hunt those birds as they returned to feed their nestling. One day, a friend of mine captured a nestling, from a nest on a branch, and swing it to cry loudly, as a decoy, to hunt the mother. As the nestlings cried out loud, the parents, bravely and loudly, flew to attack me, attracting other birds to do so too. As they were shot in the feet or wings, they could not escape but crawling into and disappeared in the lawn and bush. We then burned the latter to capture them. As the flame gradually spread, it burned not only the small trees but also lawn around the nests causing the big birds to fly in the dark smoke and the flame seeking their beloved nestlings. When the fire ceased, I and other hunters picked those death birds home, joyfully.

Having learnt that all birds have feelings, loving their family and communities, like human. Their existence also attracts both domestic and international visitors. More importantly, the birds inhabiting in the forest are the beauty of our village and community; such beautiful scenery mesmerizes the photograph lovers like me, and the other photographers. Given my experience as a hunter, our community should consider avoiding hunting all (endangered) bird species for daily livelihoods and consumption, and instead, raising fish, chicken, duck, pigs, cattle and other livestock. We should preserve wild birds for sightseeing (bird observation) and photographic purposes, generating income for our community.

These photographic artworks, entitled “From hunting to shooting”, are created contributing to changing our habit: hunting wild birds for consumption and trading. Stop consuming all kinds of wildlife starts from ourselves. It is not too late to protect the remaining natural resources for our next generation.

Using Drones to speed up relief efforts in Philippines by Veejay Villafranca for FAO in collaboration with Noor Images

"In the Philippines, the national Department of Agriculture and The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have developed a project that uses state-of-the-art drone technology to monitor the health of crops and speed up recovery when natural disasters damage them.

While a person can only survey seven hectares of land per day, drones can assess 200 hectares in just 30 minutes, gathering accurate, real-time information on disaster-caused damage. This helps relief efforts, enabling government and partners to assist faster those most in need. Farmers are often the worst affected by extreme weather events. Following the destruction of one season of crops, entire livelihoods are often at stake.

“The Philippines has almost 20 typhoons every year, so our farmers experience losses from calamities. This drone program has changed our work because it lessens the time spent in the validation of the total damage caused.”
