In another life...
I was lucky enough to be able to research and report for a couple of award-winning TV documentaries for Al Jazeera English's 101 East programme. I also produced a short film of my own and a photo-documentary.
Worked to Death
A human rights documentary about the abuse of migrant labour rights in Malaysia. Who are the real bad guys?
A Graying Society
Uncovering Japan's insecurities in the face of its rapidly ageing population.
A close look at the Philippines' troubling economic dependence on outsourced office jobs from more developed countries.
A Melting Pot
Donatien Schramm has never been to China, but he teaches Mandarin in Chinatown Paris. Voted top 10 of 103 entries at the ASEF short film contest.
"I Make The World Laugh, But The World Makes Me Cry"
Ali Akbar gained the right to stay in France when François Mittérand’s government retroactively regularised illegal migrants in the 1980′s. Ali's humorous headlines (“Sarkozy assassiné! Sarkozy assassinated!”) and emblematic personality have won him much popularity, an asset which has helped him build a life in Paris.
And that's my sister life.
