Globalization is Good
In 1953, Taiwan and Kenya were equally as poor. 50 years later, Taiwan has become 20 times richer than Kenya. In this 2003 documentary, Swedish author Johan Norberg travels to the two countries and explains how this came to be.

"Globalisation is Good" is a 2003 documentary film written and presented by Johan Norberg and produced by Freeform Productions for British Channel 4. The film is based on Norberg's much celebrated book 'In Defense of Global Capitalism' (2001) that shows his view of the impact of globalisation, and the consequences of its absence. In the film, Norberg travels to countries like Taiwan, Vietnam and Kenya promoting ideas of global capitalism and attempting to prove why he feels protestors entering the anti-globalisation movement are ignorant and dangerously wrong.

Heal the Nation (Kenya Post-Election Violence Documentary)
"Heal the Nation" documentary is an independent film produced by Picha Mtaani, a youth-led peace initiative that put together a street photography exhibition of the 2007-2008 post-election violence that reached over 500,000 Kenyans over the past three years.

Through eyewitness accounts and personal stories, victims and perpetrators meet together as they narrate their stories on Kenya's worst political and tribal conflict that left over 1,500 dead and nearly 500,000 people internally displaced. "Next time someone gives you money and a panga, take the money; it's probably yours. Give him back the panga. Ask him to go fight," said Swiss Ambassador Jacques Pitteloud who called for personal responsibility.

The "Heal the Nation" film is just one initiative of the organization, which implements innovative projects to involve ordinary citizens and visual artists in a process of healing, reconciliation, and civic engagement.

Kenya - The Rift
Mar 2008
The violence that erupted after Kenya's election left over a thousand dead and hundreds of thousands more homeless. Much of it appeared pre-mediated. Can a peace accord now last?


"The ODM dealers planned and executed ethnic cleansing", states government spokesman Alfred Mutua. "Those people are just as bad as Milosevic". In response, opposition leader Raila Odinga predicts "only doom for this country", if President Kibaki continues to rely on the hardliners around him.

Trouble in Paradise - Kenya
Jan 2004
The bombing of the Paradise hotel in Kenya was meant to target Westerners. But it is Kenya's Muslim population who is suffering.

Mombassa's beautiful beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. But the beaches are all deserted. The Kenyan tourist industry has become a casualty of the War on Terror. In the aftermath of the Paradise bombing, America and England imposed a travel ban to Kenya. Thousands of tourism workers lost their jobs. Kenyan authorities, desperate to prove they were fighting terrorism, started harassing Muslims and arresting hundreds of poor civilians. "We're called terrorists so that we can be targeted," complains one Muslim speaker. Now many Kenyans fear that supporting the war on terrorism is approving a war targeted at Muslims.

Change in the Air - Kenya
Nov 2007
Concern over food miles is threatening the livelihood of African farmers. There are calls for imported products to lose their organic status. Many see the move as yet another trade barrier.

"It's developed countries who are causing global warming. But who is suffering more -- Africans!" laments Kenyan farming advocate, Eustace Kiarii. If Kenyan food lost its organic label, "it would be an economic disaster for the country". There are claims the move is; "just another non-tariff barrier to trade". As Kiarii points out, transport is only one aspect of a product's carbon footprint. Unlike Europeans, African farms don't rely on heated greenhouses and use less machinery. Ironically, Kenyan farmers are already being affected by climate change. Seasonal rainfall is becoming less predictable every year, seriously affecting harvests.
