If you live and work in Canada, chances are you’re connected to Canadian mining companies – whether you know it or not – through your savings, taxes, Canada Pension Plan contributions, RRSPs and other investments.  The filmmakers trace their savings to Canadian mines in Eastern and Southern Africa, unearthing the stories behind some of the continent’s largest Canadian-owned mining projects. The film brings viewers on a journey, taking a hard look at why communities, governments and corporations are so often pitted against each other in an explosive battle over extracting the earth’s riches. Thèmes: environnement, politique

La Cantine afghane Visionnement gratuit du film
documentary, 56 min, French with English subtitles, 2012

En 2010, ils étaient près de 500 en exil vivant dans des campements de réfugiés à travers la capitale française. Tandis que l’état resserre les vis pour ses réfugiés politiques, des groupes, majoritairement de jeunes hommes, vivant dehors, mènent une existence clandestine et précaire au pays du droit de l’homme. 
Ils sont charmants, intelligents et ne veulent que «goûter la vie». Ils sont Afghans, demandeurs d’asile à Paris, en France. Ce documentaire nous fait découvrir la Cantine afghane, une association co-gérer par des Français et des réfugiés afghans, qui préparent des repas et évènements culturels afghans dans divers endroits parisiens. Partager un repas, changer le regard. C’est au travers d’échanges culturels et de partage que la Cantine afghane espère créer du lien social entre la population française et les réfugiés politiques. Grâce à cet espace de rencontre, l’organisme tente d’intégrer les nouveaux arrivants tout en offrant aux parisiens la possibilité d’apprendre à connaître ces personnes. Thèmes: immigration, art et culture
