One of the best movies i have ever watched. Super real and very well told. It is about the Brazilian ghetto in the 60-70s. It is nice to see that top movies are not produced only in Hollywood.
Even though he was stripped of his title and suffered many sanctions, Muhammad Ali refused to be subscribed in the army and go to Vietnam. “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong”.
Was is war good for – absolutely nothing
In the fields the bodies are burning as the war machine keeps turning
Heal the world
Old enough for killing but not old enough for voting
Run to the Hills
I know it is kind of long (over an hour) but hey, try to explain your idea about the world in 2030 for less time 🙂
I watched a show on National Geographic about Japanese Macaques (or aka Snow Monkeys) and was astounded by how intelligent these monkeys are. I wont elaborate a lot about them as there are a bunch of materials about them but here are some quick facts:
– snow monkeys can pass ability and knowledge in the group and also to the next generations
– scientists left sweet potatoes for them to eat at the beach. One monkey got a potato and washed it with river water. She also seasoned the clean potato with sea water to make it saltier. Soon after that all members of the group started doing that and even the next generations. The same monkey learned how to clean wheat out of sand – she threw the mix of wheat and sand in the water, waited for the sand to sink and picked up the wheat that surfaced. Again that behavior was spread among the others in the group.
– snow monkeys learned to withstand cold winters by bathing in hot springs
– snow monkeys are known to make ice balls or bang stones with no purpose whatsoever but to have fun.
That movie is wow. Not very impressive in the beginning but it gets very interesting as the story unwraps. It is about a boy that finishes college and decides to go to Alaska by himself, surviving only on his skills and offerings from nature, looking for true happiness. However, no happy end. The movie is very philosophical and asks question like – What is essential for happiness? Do we live the life that we want to? Do we need all that we “need”? So if you happen to have one of those melancholic, philosophical Sundays – i strongly recommend this movie 🙂
Lucky is hard to say for a baby that probably lost its parents and is going to live in war torn Syria but hey, surviving in the ruins is amazing!
