Linking Africa [electronic resource]: The Future Is Digital

Africa has the fastest-growing cell phone market in the world, fueling the continent's IT boom and making Nokia and Google sit up and take notice. This program examines East Africa's burgeoning and innovative use of information technology in small businesses, health care, education, and social activism. Viewers meet the software developers and digital pioneers who are increasing Africa's connectivity with programs such as One Laptop Per Child-an initiative that brings hope to an area ravaged by civil strife. The video also looks at the mixed feelings of uneasy governments who see the Internet as both potential spark for an Arab Spring-style uprising and a lucrative way to bring their countries into the 21st century.

Shooting With Mursi

Olisarali Olibui, a member of one of Africa’s most isolated tribes, carries a Kalashnikov in one hand and a camera in the other, with which he chronicles the struggle of his tribe to protect their land and way of life. Olibui grew up in remote Mursiland where, after seeing westerners with cameras, he realized that filmmaking was a way of showing the world Mursi culture. He was sent to Australia by the local mission to learn English and this skill gave him the means to pursue his interest. He was given a video camera and started documenting his tribe's activities.

Extinction in Progress

The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti is still struggling to get on its feet from the disastrous 2010 earthquake. But the real problem Haiti faces in the near future is the complete degradation of its natural resources. Today, forests cover less than two percent of its territory and scientists predict a mass extinction of Haiti’s biodiversity. Over a three-year period, a team of scientists and naturalists travel to the most remote locations in Haiti to investigate the current state of its biodiversity. Surprisingly, they discover almost 50 new species and rediscover species thought to be lost, including one of the most endangered mammals, the Hispaniolan solenodon.

The Blood of Women

The Pokot people come from northwest Kenya and a part of Uganda. Proud and fiercely independent, the Pokot are bearers of an ancient culture with some well-entrenched rituals. Female genital mutilation, a rite of passage into womanhood, is one of them. This film presents a collection of testimonies of those who confront this tradition—of those who fight it and, more often, those who suffer its consequences.
