Before the Flood - Full Movie


"Before The Flood" een documentaire met Leonardo di Caprio die iedereen gezien moet hebben. 

Klimaatverandering is een feit en al aan de gang, door mensen veroorzaakt. CO2 uitstoot, de vleesindustrie, ontbossingen en mileuvervuiling zijn de grootste oorzaken hiervan. 

Ook jij kan hier iets aan doen. Eet bijvoorbeeld geen vlees meer, of eet minder vlees, of kip i.p.v. rundvlees. Ik zelf eet helemaal geen vlees meer. Hopelijk gaan de oliebedrijven erkennen dat het tijdperk van fossiele brandstoffen nu moet eindigen en dat we met z'n allen overstappen op schone energie, zoals zonne- en windenergie. 

Samen kunnen we ervoor zorgen dat we het tij keren en de aarde bewoonbaar houden voor onze kinderen en onze kleinkinderen.

The Last Nivkh Chieftain


The Nivkh are the indigenous people of Sakhalin Island in the Russian North. Since their lands were discovered by explorers from the mainland, they have undergone assimilation by the Japanese and persecution by the Soviet government. They were banned from practising their culture and their language was largely forgotten. Since the Nivkh language didn’t have a written form, it was an almost impossible task to preserve it in the reality faced by the Nivkh after being discovered by the outside world. Many Nivkh legends, beliefs and traditions were lost. 

However, current Nivkh chieftain, Vladimir Sangi, believes it is possible to restore the Nivkh language and culture. He co-authored the alphabet of the Nivkh language which has hugely contributed to its preservation. Still, there is a long way to go for the Nivkh people, as very few of them today can speak their native tongue.
