Could I Take a Bullet?

BY JOHN RICHIE
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2013

Filmmaker John Richie speaks about the people that he came to know making "Shell Shocked", a documentary about youth and gun violence in New Orleans. He became very close to people that had lost loved ones (oftentimes children) in this way.

Many of the shootings in New Orleans are due to retaliatory violence. Like Ed Buckner says in Shell Shocked, “When you shoot one black kid, all you are doing is inciting his 20 friends to come and kill you.”

As John says, "The retaliatory response is a young man’s way of dealing with it, and only a small group of “hardheads” will do this. Most people who have lost a loved one in this violent, unfair way have years, if not a lifetime, of intense grief and anger. But what I’ve seen from the mothers, fathers, and friends of victims is an amazing transcendence from grief to compassion and enlightenment.  I’m amazed by it, and I wonder if I lost my brother or best friend to gun violence which path I’d take.  I hope I would follow the example of the great people in my film Shell Shocked."

Shell Shocked is screening at the National League of Cities conference in 2013 and is available for purchase at www.shellshockeddoc.com

A Nation Outside a Nation

BY NADINE STIJNS
@ VOL 5 ON FEB 28, 2013

Labour migration is part of the lifeblood of Filipinos around the world. Nearly 10 million people (10% of the population) have left the Philippines in search for work abroad. My partner is Filipino-American and for years I watched the small-scale migrations among his family in Southern California and the Philippines. These patterns are both visible and invisible: gifts are sent in gigantic boxes, money is returned and invested, new formations of friends and family are established in a foreign land, while Skype buzzes in the background with the sounds of home.

‘A Nation Outside a Nation’ captures these moments and movement in the Netherlands.

Looking Back

BY WALTER COKER
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 14, 2014

Walter Coker looks back over twenty years of photography and shares with us what it has taught him about compassion. The world can be a big and cruel of only the strong, smart, and rich survive. This is not all entirely true, and some get left behind, pushed aside, and even abused from the rest of the pack. Walter shares his photos and stories to remind us that we need to show more compassion everyday. Not only to each other, but with the nature that lives with us.

Deniz Özgün’s no-success story of BOX Video touched the very heart of the creative community. ‘The Finale’ was a live mini-concert by the Jazz Choir of the Boğaziçi University Music Club, making the audience sing and dance along.
