We're all Migrants... And Humans. And some of us are Artists too.



A lot is happening today... Though I should concentrate and work more! I still want to share a few links:

About Calais' tragic migrant situation, from the wonderful website OKAYAFRICA/

Just over 20 miles from Dover, the northern port city of Calais is the closest French town to
England. The site is home to another chapter of what the New York Times referred to this
week
 as a painful drama playing out across Europe. According to the World Policy Institute, between 3,000 to 5,000 migrants, largely from East Africa and the Middle East, live
in the city’s resource-scarce camps, often lacking proper shelter and medical services. Many
of these migrants seek to flee for Britain each night by stowing away on UK-bound trucks and ferries.
What do you think?
The crisis in Calais escalated this week, when thousands of migrants entered the high-traffic
Channel Tunnel on July 27 and 28, reports WPI. One Sudanese migrant was killed in an
accident, making him the ninth person to die in an attempted tunnel crossing since June.

And ain't we all migrants?
Acclaimed filmmaker Raoul Peck will soon start the shooting of his film about Karl Marx

Up Next for Raoul Peck: 'The Young Karl Marx'

News from the European Film Market continues to pour in, as I sort through for anything
of interest to this blog... like this one.
Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck is now attached to direct "The Young Karl Marx," a period
drama on the shaky friendship between Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels - the German
intellectual titans and fathers of Marxism - charting their completion of the Communist
Manifesto. 
In what is described as quite an ambitious project, the film will star German actors, August
Diehl as Marx, and Alexander Fehling as Engels.
