“My life was based around work. My passion turned into routine. I almost burned out and it took me a while to understand what was happening. After selling all camera equipment in March 2012 to take a 7 month break, motivation is back and life is more balanced than it ever was.” Rene Eckert
In Mississippi, a new law threatens to shut down the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the last abortion provider in the state. Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Maisie Crow and writer Alissa Quart provide an intimate portrait of the lives at the center of this political maelstrom. From one of the clinic’s doctors, who feels duty-bound to travel there each week from out of state; to a leading protester, a doctor who once performed abortions herself; to the young women wrestling with a decision that will change the course of their lives, this unique multimedia story takes you beyond the slogans. The Last Clinic is an illuminating and moving portrait of the humanity behind an incendiary issue.

“I’ve been involved with the movement for women’s reproductive rights for over 40 years, both as an activist and a writer, and this is by far the best reporting I have ever seen on the subject. Alissa Quart and Maisie Crow offer a view from the frontlines of the abortion conflict that is both intimate and bracingly challenging.” —Barbara Ehrenreich, bestselling author of Nickel and Dimed, Bait and Switch, and other books.

Associated Press photographer Esteban Felix Tells the story behind the photos.
The workers who cut sugar-cane and other crops in the sweltering coastal lowlands of Central America are being hit by a mysterious epidemic that is killing thousands of people a year. From Panama to southern Mexico, laborers are coming down with kidney failure at rates unseen virtually anywhere else in the world.
Families and villages are being devastated by the loss of nearly entire generations of men.
Since 2000, chronic kidney disease has killed more than 24,000 people in El Salvador and Nicaragua, the two countries that are by far the worst-hit by the disease.
Rigorous scientific investigation has only just begun in the communities hit by the epidemic, and relatively few facts have been established, but scientists are coming up with what they believe to be a credible hypothesis.
They say the roots of the epidemic appear to lie in the grueling nature of the work performed by its victims.
They labor hour after hour without enough water in blazing temperatures, pushing their bodies through repeated bouts of extreme dehydration and heat stress for years on end. Many start as young as 10. The punishing routine appears to be a key part of some previously unknown trigger of chronic kidney disease, which is normally caused by diabetes and high-blood pressure.
Associated Press Photographer Esteban Felix spent weeks in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua, one of the worst-affected communities, documenting the human toll of this epidemic. There, one of four men has symptoms of chronic kidney disease, which floods the body with toxins, casuing weakness, cramps, headaches, vomiting, shortness of breath, and, in the most serious cases, death.

MUST SEE. Vuelvo a traer al blog esta maravilla. Un magnífico trabajo realizado desde el respeto y la máxima honestidad por el maestro Carlos Cazalis.
Year Zero is a documentary film about the aftermath of Haiti post earthquake January 12, 2010. Producers David Snider and Carlos Cazalis teamed up with Chromasonus sound producer Nao Sakamoto to document year zero, the attempts by the Haitian republic to recover from the consequences of the natural disaster that hit Port-Au-Prince, Leogane and Jacmel. It’s effects were devastating with great loss of life. Through a visual narrative poem, spoken by Haitian poet Dr. Henry Barbot, Snider incorporates Cazalis’ photographs to tell the dramatic life stories of a crippled state on the verge of collapse due to a devastating 2010 with several natural disasters, a refugee crisis, a gratuitous cholera epidemic and an army of aid actors at play.

At 6’7” and 215 pounds, Deontay Wilder always imagined he’d be making a name for himself on the football field or the basketball court. After the birth of his daughter Naeiya, his dreams took an unpredictable turn. She was born with severe spina bifida and doctors told Deontay that she would most likely never walk.
Torn by the news, Deontay immediately abandoned his dreams of being a professional athlete and began to work multiple jobs to pay for the surgeries and medical care Naeiya required. After a year of tirelessly working to support his daughter, a miracle occurred. Through a friend, Deontay discovered a hidden gift that would change his and Naeiya’s lives forever; boxing.
With Naeiya as his inspiration, Deontay has rapidly risen through the ranks in the boxing world where he is widely considered the next great heavyweight contender. Fueled by love and compassion, Deontay’s boxing has afforded him the opportunity to provide his daughter with the best medical care possible. Naeiya is now able to walk on her own. One step at a time, Deontay and Naeiya continue their fight and journey toward greatness together.
From the beginning, this project has been defined by a single word, passion. Our entire team felt it was our duty to share Deontay and Naeiya’s story`as it further instills our belief that lives can be changed when you give of yourself for the good of others.

The Daily Beast cover illustration. Alfred Hitchcock: The Psycho Genius of Hollywood.
“To say he’s making a comeback would be misleading, because he never went away. Alfred Hitchcock’s place in the pantheon of great directors has long been secure, thanks to a string of classics stretching from the 1930s (…).”
