    India, devastated by the Covid-19 second wave, is experiencing an increase in the number of orphans, exposed to all types of trafficking.

    The violent Covid second wave that swept through the country last spring destroyed entire families and left more than 100,000 orphans behind. Some of these children have found refuge in orphanages, but others are now completely on their own.
    The child protection services are overwhelmed by the magnitude of the disaster and many of them are now off the radar. Without family, and especially without income, Covid orphans are forced to drop out of school and start working at an early age.

    TURKEY: SYRIANS IN THE CROSSHAIRS OF THE ELECTIONS - 13-05-2023

    Turkey is the country that hosts the largest number of refugees in the world: more than four million of them, most of whom are Syrians who came to this large country bordering Syria more than 10 years ago, when the war broke out.

    Turkey is the country that hosts the largest number of refugees in the world: more than four million of them, most of whom are Syrians who came to this large country bordering Syria more than 10 years ago, when the war broke out.

    Last year, in response to the opposition's promises to send all Syrians back across the border, President Erdogan declared: "[Turkey] will protect until the end these brothers who fled the war and took refuge in our country" no matter what Kemal Kilicdaroglu (the candidate to face Erdogan) claims. But since then, the Turkish president's popularity has dropped to lowest level and xenophobia is on the rise. Therefore, last summer, Erdogan announced a "voluntary return" plan for one million Syrians. His attempt at reconciliation with the Damascus regime is also a way of countering the opposition as the May 14 elections look uncertain for the man who has been ruling Turkey for 20 years.
    The country is undergoing a seemingly endless financial crisis and President Erdogan's popularity has been dropping for months. Syrian immigration has thus become an electoral issue, and the Syrians in Turkey, are the scapegoats of a country in pain. Over the past two years, riots and looting have broken out in Syrian-inhabited areas of Istanbul and Ankara. Racist crimes have been increasing as well. The February 6 earthquake has further complicated their situation. Most of them have settled in the region bordering Syria, which was most affected by the natural disaster. Sophie Nivelle-Cardinale's documentary follows Syrians facing a very uncertain future in a Turkey that is in the middle of an election campaign.

    MYANMAR: INSIDE THE CHIN RESISTANCE - 17-06-2023

    In Myanmar, ever since the military coup in February 2021, the Chin people have taken up arms to defend their territory, their identity and their ideals against the all-powerful junta that's now ruling the country.

    In Myanmar, ever since the military coup in February 2021, the Chin people have taken up arms to defend their territory, their identity and their ideals against the all-powerful junta that's now ruling the country.

    In the mountains of western Afghanistan, away from the world and the cameras, a merciless war is being waged, sparing no civilians. The Chins, a Christian minority, are resisting and against  the junta that’s controlling a large part of their state. In the depths of the mountains bordering India, they have set up a training camp to gather up a resistance army. Armed with light weapons and unfailing determination, hundreds of young people have given up their jobs and studies to take on the Burmese forces in the field. Far from their bases, however, the junta's military are struggling to advance and, in the face of resistance, are unable to impose their control. In this war, civilians are paying a heavy price: victims of the junta's aerial bombings, thousands of villagers have seen their houses destroyed and are forced into internal exile. With little means but plenty of courage, the Chin minority continues to stand up to a regime they have sworn to bring down.

    THE WEST BANK: A WAR OF THE EXTREMES - 24-06-2023

    In the north of the West Bank, near Nablus, a new episode in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is being played out: the war of the extremes.

    In the north of the West Bank, near Nablus, a new episode in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is being played out: the war of the extremes.

    It opposes young radical Jewish settlers, protected by the Israeli army, to young militant Palestinians of a new armed group: the Lion's Den. Between murderous attacks and punitive expeditions, civilians find themselves on the front line. This radical youth movement is out of control. Neither the Israeli government, nor the Palestinian Authority, nor even Hamas, are able to impose themselves. But all are fanning the flames. From illegal Israeli settlements to the bowels of Palestinian refugee camps, this report tells the story of a rise to extremes. That of a generation hostile to the slightest compromise. A generation determined to bury the peace dreams of the Oslo I Accord, signed barely thirty years ago.

    EAST TIMOR: TEARING DOWN THE WALL OF SILENCE - 24-06-2023

    A wall of silence is slowly being torn down. In East Timor, people are starting to speak out against the actions of churchmen.

    A wall of silence is slowly being torn down. In East Timor, people are starting to speak out against the actions of churchmen.

    After the Vatican City State, East Timor is the most Catholic country in the world, with 97% of the population practicing Catholicism. During the bloody Indonesian occupation, priests played a key role in hiding, caring for and protecting the inhabitants fleeing repression and massacres. Ever since the country's independence in 2002, they have been considered true national heroes. 
    This is the case of Carlos Filipe Ximenes Belo, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1996 and former bishop of Dili, the capital. Exfiltrated by the Holy See in 2002, he now lives a discreet life in Portugal to protect himself from the accusations that were made against him. 
    Carlos Belo is said to have taken advantage of his position and status to abuse young boys for many years, inviting them to his house.
    Another national hero, Father Richard Dashbach, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for multiple rapes committed on young girls in the orphanage he had run since the 1970s. 
    This investigation is based on never-before-seen testimonies, in a country where the taboo surrounding these crimes reveals the predominant influence of the Church within Timorese society, as well as its disturbing cultural relationship with paedophilia.

    UKRAINE: THE COUNTRY FROM THE INSIDE - 07-10-2023

    In Ukraine, one town has never been hit by Russian bombing: Oujhorod, at the western end of the country, capital of the Transcarpathian region, which borders Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania.

    In Ukraine, one town has never been hit by Russian bombing: Oujhorod, at the western end of the country, capital of the Transcarpathian region, which borders Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania.

    This mountainous landscape of mystical beauty is the only place in the country where the sound of bombs does not echo. Here, life goes on peacefully, at least on the surface, with little concern for the front line, more than 1,000 kilometres away.
    Yet you only have to pass through each commune to realise that this region also paid a heavy price for the war: dozens of memorials pay tribute to the men who died in the fighting. And there are many of them. Throughout Ukraine, men over the age of 18 were, without exception, liable to be sent to the front. Many of them, in the early days of the war, enlisted voluntarily to defend their homeland.
    But despite the drama unfolding further east, the Carpathians remain a haven of tranquillity where Ukrainians come to recharge their batteries. For a summer, tourists, mothers and children, citizens displaced because of an occupied city or under Russian fire, flee the horror of war. It's also a place where the wounded who have been evacuated from the front are cared for: at Uzhhorod hospital, the rooms are filled with soldiers who are being treated as best they can, with a view to their return to civilian life...
    In the summer of 2023, the Ukrainians seem to have emerged from the state of shock into which the Russian aggression plunged them in February 2022. The ceremonies and celebrations for Independence on 24 August were more joyful.
    They all say they have no choice: fighting is a duty, resisting the Russian invaders has given them a new lease of life.

    AZERBAIJAN: REGAINING CONTROL OF HIGH KARABAKH - 21-10-2023

    Following the exodus of 100,000 Armenians from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia at the end of September, Azerbaijan regained full control of this territory which, under international law, belongs to it.

    Local and international journalists were escorted through the area, now deserted by Armenian civilians. A few rare free testimonies still emerge, such as those of the Red Cross.
    By contrast, Bas-Karabagh, which was reclaimed in 2020, is teeming with work in progress. The painstaking work of demining the territory is well under way and infrastructure is springing up like mushrooms.
    Baku's ambition is to repopulate the region with the 800,000 Azerbaijani refugees who fled the Armenian advance during the first Karabakh war, which was lost in 1993.
    This was the case for the Abassov family, who left behind the insalubrious accommodation they had lived in for 30 years in Baku for a brand new flat in Fizouli, a town in the reconquered Karabakh region.  A forced relocation that did not go without a hitch...

    In the United States, more and more elderly people from the baby-boomer generation - the generation that helped build today's America - find themselves on the streets from their sixties onwards.

    America is ageing, and many people are no longer able to make ends meet. This is due to the economic factor: the explosion in the cost of living, the housing crisis and the drastic increase in existing rents, the lack of construction of retirement homes, age-related medical expenses, etc.
    Then there's the social factor: the elderly often live alone, lack family support and are less likely to ask for help for fear of disturbing others. A bleak picture that inevitably leads to a catastrophic situation, but above all, one that is unprecedented in the history of the United States of America.
    Peter Moya, 62, ran a limousine company. His clients included Carlos Santana, Diana Ross and Halle Berry. Vickie Eichelberger, 68, worked in agriculture for 38 years. On reaching retirement age, they both slipped into a precarious situation, joining the 6,000 or so men and women living on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona.
    More than 1,500 homeless men and women occupy the "Phoenix zone", where sixteen NGOs are working to give them back access to public assistance and housing. They are providing 900 men and women with a roof over their heads for the night, but 600 of them are spending the night outside in tents.

    Following the exodus of 100,000 Armenians from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia at the end of September, Azerbaijan regained full control of this territory which, under international law, belongs to it.

    Armenia, for its part, saw this takeover as yet another test in its troubled history, particularly since the genocide perpetrated by Turkey in 1915.
    108 years later, in 2023, Armenians once again felt abandoned by the international community, in favour of energy interests. The Azeri dictatorship exports gas and oil to Europe.
    Following this victory, President Aliyev's regime is maintaining the pressure on its neighbour and hereditary enemy in an attempt to recover other Armenian territories and thus ensure territorial continuity. A cartographic visualization, deciphered by the collector Rouben Galichian, sheds geopolitical light on the many conflicts that have marred this region, which still has to contend with an inextricable and explosive situation inherited from the days of the USSR.
    A small haven of democracy in the midst of a hostile environment dominated by the balance of power, Armenia's territorial integrity appears to be under threat from its Muslim neighbours.

The inhabitants of the nearby village of Zanuta have already left.

    On Cape Verde Island, uncontrolled sand mining has been officially illegal since 2010. But for many women, it remains the only way to feed their children or allow them to study. They sell their meager loot for a miserable sum to unscrupulous manufacturers who use it to make cinder blocks.

    Isolated, 700 kilometres off the Senegalese coast, Cape Verde Island has no natural resources. One in four people live on less than two euros a day.
    The same actions are repeated from generation to generation by the women of Cape Verde. Every day, they rake the beaches. Bucket and shovel in hand they scrape, gather and filter the sand: this volcanic archipelago's black gold.
    Now, some beaches have been completely destroyed. The black gold has run out. Only pebbles remain. The environmental consequences are disastrous: accelerated coastal erosion, depletion of fish stocks and salt pollution of groundwater and the surrounding fields.

    Every year, hundreds of thousands of people from South America attempt to illegally cross the border between the United States and Mexico – trying to escape the violence in their homeland. Donald Trump's policies have made them unwelcome in a country where anything is possible.

    They are Salvadorians, Hondurans or Mexicans. Last year, more than a million of them were arrested within the United States after illegally entering the country. The Trump administration has been treating them like common criminals: sent to prison for months, forced to wear electronic bracelets, or deported before they could even apply for asylum.
     
    José is a 25-year-old Salvadoran; he risks being killed by gangs in his country. He is now seeking asylum and protection in the United States.
