    Ecumenical Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival 2014

    A film about the imposition of a totalitarian form of Islam on a village in Mali won the prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the Cannes Film Festival 2014. Timbuktu, directed by Abderrahmane Sissako, a film maker from Mauritania, tells the story of how local people resist the arrival of extremists who want to restrict women’s liberty and to outlaw music and football.

  • Poder político, tecnología y medios de comunicación

    Poder político, tecnología y medios de comunicación

    La actual crisis mundial que está afectando a millones de personas, muestra una fuerte erosión del sistema político, social y económico imperante, que como el ave Fénix está procurando renacer de sus propias cenizas. Una de las claves para entender el gigantesco avance del capitalismo global es comprender el papel que han jugado y siguen jugando las nuevas tecnologías como herramientas esenciales para su desarrollo. La revolución tecnológica se originó y difundió en un período histórico de reestructuración global del capitalismo. El incesante y creciente desarrollo de las nuevas tecnologías se ha ido introduciendo en nuestra infraestructura social de la mano de grandes corporaciones internacionales.

  • “The Act of Killing”: truth, memory and reconciliation in Indonesia

    “The Act of Killing”: truth, memory and reconciliation in Indonesia

    The documentary film “The Act of Killing” reflects the ongoing impunity enjoyed by the paramilitary groups responsible for the crimes of Suharto’s regime in Indonesia in the late 1960s. Applauded by critics, internationally awarded and nominated for an Oscar in 2014 in the category “Best Documentary”, this movie creates a reflection on the recent past of a society that sees perpetrators as heroes and at the same criminalizes victims and justifies the atrocities committed against them. The film gathers stories about crimes against humanity with world-historical importance that had never been recorded before. “The Act of Killing” is a clue element in the national process of reconciliation and clarification of the truth about the dictatorship in Indonesia.

  • Virtual grief

    Virtual grief

    The advent of social media has altered the communication of relationships in myriad ways. High school friends – lost years before to different colleges, cross-country moves, and growing families – are now back in contact via social networks. Communally speaking, social media relationships are held together by seemingly random posts about trips to the grocery store or a night at the movies that lead to days of commentary from family, friends, and acquaintances. Social media also appears to be changing the ways we grieve with one another, our communal expression and ritual of grief.

  • What are the communications challenges facing Tonga today?

    What are the communications challenges facing Tonga today?

    It is difficult to treat communication separately from the other elements that have developed and sometimes become challenges in the society of today. If not all, most of the components of any society are subject to change and any change is a potential challenge.
