Eye on the Arctic

Eye on the Arctic is a partnership between public, private, and independent circumpolar media. As rapid climate change focuses international attention on the polar regions, Eye on the Arctic has brought together news organizations from all Northern countries so we can better tell the stories of the peoples and communities on the frontlines of climate adaptation. Initiated and co-ordinated by Radio Canada International, Eye on the Arctic is the first co-production of its kind. Partners include: TV2 (Denmark), Yleisradio (Finland), Sermitsiaq (Greenland), Finnmark Dagblad (Norway), Rikisutvarpio (Iceland), Voice of Russia, Radio Sweden, SR Sameradion (Sweden), Alaska Dispatch and Alaska Public Radio Network.

Diversity Makers

They are young. They belong to diverse ethnic minorities, living in multicultural spaces. Daily, they speak more than one language. Perhaps they don’t intend to change the world but nevertheless, given their choices and the way they’ve decided to live their lives, they are changing their surroundings thus shaping anew the mentalities of those around them. Their stories reflect diverse journeys taken by these young people. The result is the construction of a new form of citizenship in a multicultural world. Such is the life in the Asia-Pacific countries and in Canada. A nine episode series produced by Radio Canada International, the Thomson Foundation and the AIBD.

Maple Leaf Mailbag’s Rock’n Roadshow

What is the MLMB Rock’n Roadshow? In a word, it is a poem. In a sentence, it is a visual love song to the men and women who have carved their initials into the fabric of the Canadian countryside. The Roadshow is about exploration, change and enlightenment; it is about the Canadian way, the open road, the frozen winter, an epic struggle to survive the wrath of Mother Nature’s tempestuous bosom. The idea for the Roadshow came to me after seeing a movie about penguins — those fat loveable little adventurers we have come to love. They have taught us so much about journey, hardship and discovery. In the end, in some way, are we not all penguins? When we remember who discovered this great land of ours, who plumbed her depths and charted her soul, Cabot, Cartier, Champlain, does one not reflect on their determination, fortitude and ability to prevail against all odds? It is time to add the names Blake, Ian and Gooner to that immortal list. Join us on our journey of Truth, also known as the MLMB Rock’ n Roadshow. Ian Jones

L’Université Concordia à Montréal a décidé, il y a cinq ans, de filmer les récits de vie de Montréalais déplacés par la guerre, le génocide et autres violations des droits de la personne. La série"Histoires de vie Montréal" est née de ces entretiens. Radio Canada International a tenu à vous en présenter une quinzaine. This series produced by Concordia University in Montréal is dedicated to the stories of Montrealers displaced by war, genocide, and other human rights violations. More than 500 people were interviewed over the past five years to tell their stories. Radio Canada International wanted to salute the idea and the people behind these short films by proposing a sample of the work accomplished.

Giving a voice to those who are forgotten, and to filmmakers who innovate, and certainly to communities that do not reach the mainstream media: such is part of the mission of RCI Vision. For years, a non-profit organisation named Wapikoni Mobile has been working with First Nations people of Québec, and giving them not only a voice, but a camera and a editing suite for the past seven years. Lauched by canadian filmmaker Manon Barbeau, the Wapikoni Mobile is a new tool for Quebec’s First Nations youth. Here, a selection some 40 films in French, English and in Spanish selected from an archive of more than 500 films that were produced by Wapikoni and generously shared with Radio Canada International. You will find films of great quality. A glance into Canada’s history, and a part of each Canadians identity. For more films go to www.wapikoni.tv
