Exhibition by Photojournalist
More than forty images by
the Afghani photojournalist Zalmaï document the uncertainty
of life in ambiguous territories--Mali, Indonesia, the Philippines,
Afghanistan the Central African Republic. Landscapes, war
zones, even hospitals appear menacing, and the dispossessed
human figures inhabiting them so fragile that survival itself
comes to seem miraculous. Organized by the Musée
d'Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland.

A legendary documentary
portrait of the charismatic anti-Taliban leader of the Northern
Alliance, Ahmed Shah Massoud, assassinated purportedly on
the orders of Osama bin Laden. The filmmaker gives
a fascinating first-person account of eight visits to Afghanistan
over a 17-year period interviewing this unlikely guerilla
who was abandoned by the West. It is an extraordinary journey,
punctuated by the filmmaker's trenchant thoughts on the failure
of the West to support Massoud and his followers over more
than two decades.
