Humanitarian Affairs

Child Alert: Democratic Republic of Congo (UNICEF report)
http://www.unicef.org/childalert/drc/
In this report - written by UNICEF UK Ambassador and former BBC war correspondent Martin Bell – children are at the heart of the human tragedy that has unfolded in DRC. Since conflict began there in 1998, nearly 4 million people have been killed by war or disease, or have simply disappeared without a trace. Every six months, the death toll in DRC rivals the total deaths caused by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Simply stated, this is currently the world's deadliest humanitarian crisis, and children bear its greatest burden. But forthcoming DRC elections, with international support, may finally offer hope for change.

A Workshop for Peace: 51 hopeful nations, 11 brilliant architects, 1 soaring symbol.
DVD. United Nations. 2005. 54min.

“A Workshop for Peace is a 54-minute long documentary which unveils the dramatic story behind the design of the famous United Nations Headquarters in New York and how the vision of architects like Oscar Niemeyer and Le Corbusier shaped it. Produced and directed by award-winning American film-maker Peter Rosen, in association with the UN's Department of Public Information and with support from Tele Images International, a French distribution company, and Japan's national broadcaster, NHK. A Workshop for Peace was broadcast on PBS TV channels in commemoration of the UN's 60th Anniversary.”

Un atelier pour la paix: 51 nations pleines d’espoir, 11 architectes brillants, 1 symbole mondial.
DVD. Nations Unies. 2005. 54 min.

“Un atelier pour la paix, dont la toile de fond se situe dans les années suivant la Second guerre mondiale qui fut particulièrement destructrice, revient sur les conflits fascinants qui mirent aux prises en coulisse les meilleurs architectes du moment chargés de dessiner un "atelier de la paix" censé refléter une ardents volonté de vivre dans un monde sans guerre. Ce documentaire de 54 minutes décrit comment le travail collectif d’un groupe d’architectes déterminés et talentueux a cristallisé les espoirs et les idéaux d’une jeune organisation à travers la conception innovatrice d’un ensemble architectural fait de verre, d’acier et de marbre. “
