After Nature - New Museum NY

"After Nature" surveys a landscape of wilderness and ruins, darkened by uncertain catastrophe. It is a story of abandonment, regression, and rapture—an epic of humanity and nature coming apart under the pressure of obscure forces and not-so-distant environmental disasters. Bringing together an international and multigenerational group of artists, filmmakers, writers, and outsiders, the exhibition depicts a universe in which humankind is being eclipsed and new ecological systems struggle to find a precarious balance."

Elite Squad, now in UK.

Elite Squad is an out-of-date topic among newspapers and TV programs at the moment in Brazil. We can almost forget that 10 months ago, when the first bootleg copy of the movie was released to the pirate market, the production was a compulsory theme between every folk’s meetings throughout this country. Everyone got astonished due to the cruelty within BOPE (the police commando force which combats crime in Rio's slums), showed by José Padilha, film director.
Elite Squad is headline of today’s issue of The Telegraph. It seems that the gringo’s are also outraged with this dark reality that surrounds my country.

Cambodia by David Silveira

At first, this place can intimidate visitors for its poverty and destruction. But it takes one or two hours for you to walk barefoot through the sandy pavements and have a long conversation with local people, as reported my brother, David Silveira.
From one view, kids wear T-shirts with the message: Adopt-me. From the other, religious buildings considered one of the Seven Wonders of The World. David described Cambodia as the most amazing place of all the countries he has visited on his enviable Asian Trip.
