"Robert fisk died in october at age. Seventy four after decades of reporting on the middle east filmaker young chang profiles fisk documentary. This is not a movie. And i'm tom powers and this is pure nonfiction. One year before robert fisk died. I interviewed him in young chang at the toronto international film festival for this is not a movie had its world premiere. The film follows fisk from his home base. Beirut as he takes reporting trips to syria in the west bank fisk had an incomparable knowledge of the region that he poured into newspaper columns and books like Pity the nation and the great war for civilization in the film fisk describes. His approach are very fortunate position in journalism in both street reporter. I'm on the frontline of wars. I see the war. But i'm also a columnist. Most columnists live in new york. London paris most reporters can be columnists what. I've had the great good fortune being both at the same time so when i grab a series of articles about say syria i've just come from the syrian. Frontline i'm not recording. What someone said or reporting what. I saw on youtube when i went up. Italy province all my colleagues saying italy battle about to begin but in that whole trap. I didn't see another journalist. See russian journalist. If you don't go to the scene and sniff it and taught to the people and see with your own eyes you cannot get nia what the truth is. Young chain is a chinese canadian filmmaker best known for his films up the yangtze and china heavyweight. Those topics wouldn't lead you to guess that he'd make a film about a middle east correspondent. I started by asking young. What led him to robert fisk. I don't even know what i'm gonna make necks. Usually it's driven by curiosity and this one came about because well a couple of things one of them was. I had been working on an anthology documentary about the. Us elections in twenty sixteen called eleven eight. Sixteen and i was in vermont filming a story about a guy named boots. Were dinky leftist socialist and off the grid type character and it was. It was around nine pm. Boots said this election's over close the shut down the grid and everyone went to sleep and the next morning. I woke up with the flurry of messages from my partner american and she was eight months pregnant and she was. Just you know uncontrollably upset. I had no idea what was going on. Felt like i think for a lot of people. The the election results with trump winning was was devastating for many people and for me it was drove right to the point of what the hell happened. And so fast. Forward to a the national film board of canada or the co producers of the film anita lee the producer alison lou. Check ingmar tross from germany. You know they got in touch and and presented this idea about robert fisk and i knew of his work at followed some of his work back in post september eleventh time and and said wow this this collides with with you know what is happening. Now let's make a film about journalism and this is what this movie is about. So robert p people come to. You asked to make a film about you. Did you have apprehensions about a film. Be no. I don't think that pretensions. I mean i've i've done films before you know i'll jazirah and other people at quite some length three hours with channel four discovery. I was interested to see to see young really and see. What kind of guy was i knew. Obviously he was unfamiliar with the region. And i thought it would be very interesting to see what someone who doesn't know the region would actually make of it and i thought it might be a distinct advantage as opposed to being a disadvantage and the first time he came to lebanon hit. Obviously done a lot of reading. He'd got it pretty right and the best thing and this sounds bad to some of your colleagues is we didn't come to tell me and people in lebanon for example. What he thought was going on. Listen and it was great to find someone who actually serious questions after few minutes. Listen and i listened to people all the time. And i thought this guy fevers countermands. The same grade. Raiders is an arby's iraqi. And i thank god for that. This could be very interesting. What concern me was the last big film i made. I had very bad relationship with director. Great guy but terrible relationship dominating guy i thought i could take a second shift and then i realized after we had dinner together in beirut because fund if we could make it enjoyable and fun to do as opposed to a work has to have deep philosophical background just and he said you know we want to follow you in your work. We won't interfere with them. I let sounds good if i can add. It speaks to roberts character. When i first came to meet you. I it'd be good about is fair. This fair i mean you know the his mammoth kind of credentials. The only western journalist of interviewed osama bin laden three times. I came in and also just knowing what people online kind of the world that circles you. And so i went into this wondering a little nervous. Who's this guy. And and yeah. That was good. And you know actually. He's you quite humorous person. You're quite fun to be around then. I was like oh this could work. We could spend a couple of years making a movie together and that's what it was. That was the experience for me. I may have to imagine daunting thing about. This is just the amount of history that robert has covered the amount of different vents the complexity of any one country that that he's coverages book. Great war for civilization is about that thick and the next one. Even soccer is even thicker. Then that's not a joke in the film. There's a clip where he's in the bookshop six hundred something and now. You're fast.

Nobody wants to play in the sandbox with us because we are the worst were number one, but Brazil is catching up, and the similarities are astonishing, never really shutdown check a president recommending hydroxy chloroquine check concerns over healthcare infrastructure check, but unlike the United States. Brazil has the added risk that if things get really really bad, the military might step in and take over so long democracy. We got in touch with Gustavo. He Bairro to find out how close Brazil is to that desperate scenario, a major analyst political. And I am in Sao Paulo. He runs the Brazilian report. It's an English language news site that covers Brazilian politics. We spoke just after Brazil hit a familiar sounding milestone over one million people have been infected here over fifty thousand people died, and that makes the pandemic the deadliest event in Brazilian history. Of course, barring colonization and slavery, but it has already killed more people than our war against Paraguay in the nineteenth century, which lasted for six full years, and has only been four mouse since the first case was confirmed here we are now confirming more cases per day on the seven day, average basis than any other country in the world, and that's despite Brazil, having more than one hundred million fewer people than the US. Woven, eighteen got to Brazil, lading, February and it was a disease of the rich, because covid nineteen did not come from Asia to Brazil. We came from era became from your residence. Who are either doing business trips to North Anita Lee or A vacation trip. The thing is a lot of people really disregarded. The coronavirus s a little flew guillotine a coup from our president who has called the sniffles which you want. It was just a little cold, said Brazil's president when the crisis started. So nobody was really concerned about the corona virus at the beginning, and we saw a lot of boss, Chu Housemaid transmission, and then the housemaid who would go back to her neighborhood, than than in fact, family members and members of her neighborhoods. So the first case of a nineteen death in the state of Frio was very telling us that dynamic. It was a sixty three year olds house made worked for a wealthy family in an upscale neighborhoods in Rio and her boss did not mention she had contracted the corona fibers. She fact housemates when the housemate started showing symptoms should then took a two hour taxi back to her home in the countryside town north of Frio, and since she was diabetic, she had a history of high blood pressure. Should I in the following afternoon? Sabat you live in the biggest city in South America. What's the Kovic situation there? Some fumble is the Brazilian epicenter of the Corona Virus. If become the greater some follow area, twenty, three, twenty, five million people, and we are seeing the disease spreading around lower income neighborhoods, and that's why also has become so much more. than. It was at the beginning of the outbreak. This homeless shelter in some powder, the beds have been fooled since the stopped the pandemic. Any suspected of covert. Such in. The several weeks team nine medics from Doctors without borders is come to take their temperatures and identify cases. Some projections have that some Paulo alone could have up to one point two million cases, and now the virus is traveling through the countryside in fast pace with the first city to see a healthcare collapse were in the Amazon states. When we talk about the Amazon states, we're not talking only about indigenous or native communities, but lot of urban communities. We have a few urban centers they're. Most cities they're simply do not have an intensive care unit. Sometimes, they don't even have hospitals. The mortality rate among Brazil's indigenous people twice as high as other Brazilians, the military is being sentenced to help communities with tasting, but salmon in the Amazon region say it's too late and accused the president of abandoning them. A lot of people die before even realizing that they got the coronavirus, and before having the opportunity to get treatment and then effect that biologically. Many of these communities, because there are so reclusive because they have solely to contact with urban populations there even last prepared. When you get the map of the coronavirus prides, and then you see, the roads and the rivers that explains zoo the path of the virus, because for instance. River. Transportation is the number one transportation in the Amazon, and that means that the law of people are close to each other in small boats, traveling for several hours often, and if one person is infected, we can have dozens of people leaving boats, carrying the virus as well so that's how the virus spread so quickly and then It's also the fact that these areas are extremely warm. Sometimes they live five six seven people. We in a small shacks, and then you ask them to stay at home with. Eighty percent humidity and thirty five degrees Celsius heat so social distancing. was very hard to implement in these areas and it never really. was followed by the population. So that also helps explain why. The coronavirus spread so quickly in the Amazon bodies lie on hospital policy in the city of Manassas in the north while doctors tell us the health system across the country. It collapsed. We saw Manaus. Which is the biggest city in the Amazon, it was the first to experience a full-scale collapse to the point that the burial services they were not prepared to dig as many graves, and they didn't have enough coffins for everyone. Buried hundreds upon hundreds hair. And I ready, but thousands more. This is just one cemetery where they're filling the graves as fast as they can dig them. Still not fast enough. We are stuck in the worst of two worlds here. The economy's tanking as it is everywhere in the world, but the problem is.

"Let's say we are probably different generation and different not really different background and much more used to kind of autism. And problem. An issue is a was out is Anita Lee and Christiane is coming from long experience in UK. And probably that's the reason why I tried to be more tolerant is quite to be more. But let's say we we try not to not to fight it. We try to avoid discussing at home or in London. We live not in the same place, but sometime millennia in Venezuela together. So we tried to to to leave the relatives out of his fight and discussions Christian. I mean, I think he we are growing. I mean, normally you tend to say the either make it or break it. I think we made it and the that's not shell my opinion about that. Clearly, it hasn't been easy, but we went through and now he's getting better and better. And honestly the proof in the living proof is the fact that the the company's growing, and we are attracting another positive energy. So now, the company is one to class, and I wonder how that began because of course, you've both come from the Bank in background. But really coming from financial, but groundnut from the banking is true, mainly from a and private equity, and I've been for many years with industrial that now is quite a Winona in the industry because he's the owner of floss and BNB and and response. So is through that for a lot larger part of my life. I've been in finance, then they move into the design acquiring a company, and then I remain in the design. So we've been through floss Moy establishing sign for a long time. And now my own company our own company. Cristian Baz making his such traditional craft. So how'd a modern techniques feed into your process? I think that the reason why we started goes more to leverage on what was done so far in terms of techniques. So we were leveraging of the craftsmanship side. And we were trying to eventually give probably a new perspective we were reading that. According to our vision, and we wanted to give like probably be more of an international exposure to what was considered to be. You know, sometimes go find to the beautiful Palazzo Venice. And there was a false mixed conception. And and still now when I described to people that they they don't know us what we do. They think when when you start like saying, oh, we are producing their bennies. We deal with blown laws. He seeing there is that when then I show pictures, they they are surprised. So I think he's not a matter of like necessarily using new techniques. Technology technology is a big were techniques. Yes, that can al-ajiz it'd be a different world. The thing that eventually never say never in life in my happen in the future. At the moment. We are just keeping over self on the edge. And how we do it is that as simple as we talk a lot to universities in Venice Milan we ever received students even in the race in the reason like show for the collaboration when though. But we tend to push the limit. It doesn't necessarily mean that we pretend to invent new technology. If he comes for sure, we are going to be welcoming that and we are looking for that. But we started from relying or what traditional is in Venice. And we've been fascinated by material that has been as ancient as you can think so now you'll very much bespoke company people come and buy off the shelf products from you. I wonder who you'll major customers are other individuals or other large. Night a reality. We are contract company. We were selling to also to dealer in the world, but not many, and they are dealer that are very active in project and contract so housing those batali mainly we work on projects very difficult that in miss Maria, get into sharp and ask for a land from us that we are..

"World Service. I'm Julia mortgage coming up a little later, we'll hear from the survivor of an acid attack in Columbia who's helped to set up a campaigning group for other such victims in her country. Does the harm that really will last for your whole life? And it's something that has an only affected me. Actually, there are many women in Columbia who have gone through the same. It destroys your face. But it also has an impact on your identity, and the psychological pain is something that's very difficult to overcome more on that campaign in Columbia in this half an hour. I have with me throughout the program. La Colella, professor of Middle Eastern, politics and international studies at London University School of oriental and African studies and our Cutty Ostrovsky Russia and eastern Europe editor of the economist. What about future projects do you both having done the traveling you? Date in the style that you did another book ideas. Yes. Colleague at us an Iraqi than I have been talking about having a an eating tour of Middle Eastern ports. And we joke about it. That's the tough get it, really. Is that in actuality what we're looking at is the the the political economy of food, and and the way that the histories of food have affected the ports in the Middle East. For example, in Amman, the casino is very much affected by the history of the connection of is Montezemolo bar, for example, east Africa. And of course, the long presence of South Asian merchants. And traders in Amman of the food is very distinct uses the same set of spices and methods of cooking and things like that. But also, of course, it has a quite a fraud history because as an arid place the bringing in of it actually affects lives in fundamental sorts of ways affects commies and fundamental sorts of ways. And as you know, the sort of elements of spices, for example, been at the core of colonialism, for example. So. It's not just it's not just the hedonistic exercise. Although it will perhaps be that. But it is also really actually quite a serious project about how how the food and Middle East. You mentioned a modern, and I'm looking at a list of other places that you might consider talking about Marseille in southern France. I mean, it is the airport in Europe. And but but it has a longer history again, and it food present some of the best pizza. I've ever eaten has been in Marseilles. And that's because of the long history of labor migration from Italy. And of course, Spain to Marseille, but the our presence there has been extraordinary because you find very easily the incorporation of Arab food elements in the food of Marseille, Sicily is the same where couscous for example is one of the Staples. And you know, it's it's not a it's a bit of a fantasy project at the moment. But hopefully, we can make it real Cardi at the start of the program. You talked about your theatrical background. And I know your looking to write a book on that area of work, particularly with reference to Shakespeare. Yeah. Just before I guess into that just listening to this amazing project on the journalism was supposed to be a cushy job. Interesting places and do fun things, but I might have to reconsider moving. So well, this this book is actually was a grew out of my PHD is deeply academic book journalistic at all it's a popular book. I hope and it's about this quote. Shakespeare loves can grew out of my PHD, which was about the perception of England and Englishness in Russia. During the first two decades of the twentieth century through the verse will win the revolution. And particularly by the productions of Shakespeare Dickinson buyer, another stage of the Moscow theater, the theater that produced. Check of. Was best known as a theater sort of psychological realism and how they dealt with Shakespeare. So it's. It's a story of Russia's perception and interpretation of Shakespeare in house than Slavsky who is best known in the west as sort of the man who behind the method acting, but it's really is about psychological realism, and how the system of acting whichever is familiar with and they say sheets with check of actually emerged in order to serve in order to serve Shakespeare, which plays were produced and which ones were popular world. They were. Throughout that time. Obviously now hamlet and the tragedies. The the interesting story. I mean the. And the Commodores. The interesting stuff actually comes later in the twentieth century when Stalin effectively bans hamlet. One play that he just doesn't like, and it is not performed in Moscow from nineteen early nine hundred thirty s until his death. And what will he about the message to the played put across it's not it's not entirely clear. We have a record of him talking to a to an actor actually in saggy Eisenstein film about Ivan the terrible and saying you made him into some sort of a doubting hamlet as a sort of a way of criticism. Whether it was the criticism, whether it was the mouse trap seeing that he felt it was a little bit too close. But it was this particular aversion to that play. Whereas on the other hand Othello don't performed a lot. I think the other interesting thing is that a lot of southern plays the place sat which asserts, Anita Lee. So. Remand? Juliet Othello get done a lot because Russia's sees itself in the nine hundred thirty s sort of as a third Rome as a place as a warm Palladian country. Whereas the northern tragedies ready. Get done a tool hamlets is not done at all MacBeth, very rarely. So all the northern the history plays an all done. So it's it's a hope it's readable book, and it's not just for condemning. And it's not at all. It's for anybody who's hopefully interested in Russian culture. And then Shakespeare that you are two books to look out for in the future. We've just had outlined of the last three or four minutes today. Afghans voting in parliamentary elections for the third time since the fall of the Taliban into one already there have been major problems yesterday. The authorities in the southern Callahan province for spawned. Today's vote for a week this following the killing of a local police chief general Abdul Razzaq along with the provinces intelligence chief, the Taliban claimed responsibility for those deaths. Dr Mujibur Rahman Rahimi the spokesman for Afghanistan's chief executive, Abdullah, Abdullah told our news hour program why the postponement was necessary the case of Kandahar Ross. It was a pillar of stability in this province has its impacts on the candidates in also on the voters. The decision was to. To give them more time to recover from the psychological impact of the attack and make the right decision. But the struggle will continue against the terrorist. What our chief international correspondent lease. Do sat is on the line from the capital, Kabul. How do you assess the mood on on voting dailies? What I think it's very difficult to describe a mood across this country because the situation will differ district by district. We have reports that Taliban are blocking roads and some of the southern provinces. So that voters can't reach the polling stations. But I've just been out on the streets of Kabul. They're quite quiet, but on every street corner and around every polling center, there is a ring of steel with the police and army out tattoo keep this day as safe as they can. And I have to tell you. I went into one polling station that I have visited every time I've covered elections kenniston since the fall of the Taliban. It was absolutely packed in the women's side. There was a crush of women all trying to get in to cast their ballots in on the man side as well a long queue winding around the school yard. And of course, the big question is whether it's election will continue to be safe all day, whether the. Process will be free and fair. But it are you have to you have to be impressed by the bravery Afghans to come out in such large number despite the real threats by the Taliban to stop this voting on that note, specifically the events in southern Kandahar province, which I mentioned that the start of this conversation, how significant of the postponement do you think? Oh, huge huge huge. If a powerful police chief General Abdel Razek isn't safe then who is safe in Afghanistan, it sent a shiver in the spine of this country. But then when Afghans collected themselves after right across social media. There were so many Afghans whatever their divisions are either ethnic or political lines healing? General Raziq is his great Afghan patriot and hero. Then they started to say that this must you this. I have really been struck in the last week the app in Kabul. How many Afghans have said to me? I'm not afraid. I'm not going to let the Taliban scary scare me. I am not going to let the Taliban win. You really deserve a badge of courage for even per turn out to vote in what should be the most normal of of of processes in any country around the world. Let me bring my guests in with some thoughts, maybe questions to you. What's in your mind? What I'm really curious about is how to reconcile the idea that on the one hand Afghans are utterly disillusioned with their politicians, and they find them corrupt and untrustworthy and on the other hand voting in these large droves. There's something about. The spirit of of Afghans if you live in a country, and that has for the young generation has always been at war perhaps except for that brief period after the fall of the Taliban were they dared to hope that this would be their best chance for peace and in many generations. I think you keep fighting. I mean, so many young Afghans said to me, I don't know when I leave my house in the morning, whether I will go home alive. So when it when you live in such darkness every bright, light burns brightly and in this election. There are more young educated Afghans running than ever before including four more than four hundred women in the summer two thousand five hundred candidates. Of course, it will be the sons of the war awards. The sons of the mitigate sons and daughters of the millionaires who have spent millions in this campaign who will get some of the seats. But people keep saying at least some of the new young faces the educated Afghans who will try to chart a different course for their country. If they're given a chance. If they're given some political space, then perhaps there is a slender chance I've tried to push this country forward. So the grab every opportunity I think Cardi. Yeah. I was just wondering to what extend this is above. And this is very interesting and actually quite heartening. But I was just wondering to what extend this. This whole exercise is about its outcome who gets voted in. The a of the election to to to get elected. All to what extent it's actually a an act of defiance and participation is simply, and it is much more about security and war and people just it's another form election becomes another form of defiance. In a war. It is both just by the very mere fact devoting, you send a strong message to the Taliban who vowed, of course to stop this process. You tell them that. This is something that matters to Afghans. But of course, the outcome matters your parliament, which of course, has been sitting three years longer than it should have is now completely discredited being parliamentarian has become identified more with taking bribes then taking the country in a new direction. So the sense in which we need a new parliament, and it will bring some badly needed legitimacy to the political system here in Afghanistan, certainly won't be perfect. And it'll be certainly be some of the old bad faces and corrupt forces in it. But the hope is that it will have a different slightly different complexion. And but the question that people are asking here time, and again is what if it's a bad election is a bad election better than no election. It's it's a really tough tough. Call in Afghans are saying it's important for us to hold this. And. It has to be said to its support for the international community. The US ambassador to the United Nations came here early this year and said you must have these elections mattress to the US midterms. It matters to the donors who are holding a conference in Geneva at the end of November. They want something to show for their money. So there's a there's a western donor calendar behind this as well. But there's also an Afghan sense of you know, whatever it is as imperfect as it is it, let's let's move forward. Let's show that we can hold elections. But these are run by Afghans. There's no there's no foreign election. Commissioner says the we're at the beginning, the Afghan security forces are led by Afghans. This is an Afghan led process. No one's saying that this is going to be a textbook election. But least if it's something that Afghans can say we did it and let's go on lease. Thank you so much for that. At least you set chief international correspondent in Kabul. More from her. Of course, rather day on the BBC world services voting continues. You're listening.
