Activism Takes Many Forms: The work of Hejer Charf

Sat, 20 Feb 2010 00:00:00 -0500

Hejer Charf chose cinema as her mode of expression or perhaps the cinema chose her. Searching for information about this Canadian/Québécois filmmaker of Tunisian origin is rather like trying to fit pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together without having the original picture. From the meagre information available, we know that Hejer Charf was born into one of the élite families of Tunisia. Unlike the majority of girls, she was encouraged to study (law) and to travel. We also know that she was, at a young age, already fighting injustice and defending the rights of women, and this without incurring the wrath of her parents.

Zlata Filipovic, the Anne Frank of Sarajevo, co-authors "Stolen Voices"

Fri, 26 Jan 2007 00:00:00 -0500

Until 1992, Zlata Filipovic lived a carefree life in her native Sarajevo. She attended school, enjoyed her holidays, and, like many other 11-year-olds, kept a diary. When war suddenly entered her life, her diary was transformed into the testament of a child exposed to the possibility of violent death. Zlata's Diary was published in 1993 and became an international best-seller. It has been translated into 36 languages.

The Putin we don't know

Sun, 31 Dec 2006 00:00:00 -0500

By Andrei Vavra Russian President Vladimir Putin's online news conference consists of about one million questions asked by mail, telephone, SMS and via the Internet. Most of the questions are serious and allow the president to speak on the key issues of life in Russia, yet there are quite a few questions that are not directly connected to politics.

Bob Hunter, profile of a visionary

Sat, 26 Nov 2005 00:00:00 -0500

Little indicated in Robert Hunter’s upbringing that he would grow to become one of Canada’s- and eventually the world’s- leading environmentalist campaigners. Born in 1941 near Winnipeg (Canada), Hunter, known to all as Bob, was a rebellious child who rather disliked school, apart from English and Art class.
