Blue Magic: An Amazing Science Fiction feature
NYIHA MEDIA is pleased to release the best of Dominican cinema. Directed by Yoel Morales, this sy fy movie is beautifully shot. In a remote part of a Caribbean island, completely cut off from modern technology, we find Moises. The love Moises feels for the girl from another moon gave him the strength to defeat his fearsome, flesh-eating opponent.
Determined to help his ailing mother, he embarks on an expedition to find a rare fruit with the power to cure her. During his search, he meets Bel, a beautiful young blue-haired woman, who will transform his journey.
Director Yoel Morales adds: 'We realized that the best way to tell our story was to deliver an intimate fantasy movie, with a detailed focus on each character.' Release date: 2017, 76 minutes.
Republican Mia Love, the only Haitian-American in Congress Demands Apology from US President Donald Trump 1/12/18
US President Donald Trump has reportedly lashed out at immigrants in a foul-mouthed Oval Office outburst that a UN spokesman later condemned as "shocking", "shameful" and "racist". "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Mr Trump reportedly asked lawmakers during talks on an immigration deal. He was apparently referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. The White House made no attempt to deny the comment.
In recent weeks, the Trump administration has been trying to limit the number of family members of immigrants who can enter the US, and has moved to end the protected status of thousands of immigrants already in the US.
Dr. Steeve Coupeau Goes one on one with Thomas Morgan, Director of Soufra 1/4/2018
NYIHA MEDIA asked the director to tell his story behind the making of the film.
How did you get into contact with this group with such an uplifting story?
I came across the story from Alfanar, the organization that made the original loan to Mariam to start her small catering business. I knew Myrna Atalla, the director of Alfanar in London from a few years earlier when we tried to do a film in Libya together. She called and told me about Mariam and what she was trying to do from this refugee camp south of Beirut and I just had to see for myself. Two years later, Soufra was born.
Where does your artistic influence come from and when did you start this project?
My artistic influence is completely derived from the feel of the place that I am in. I try to make the film put you in that place. I have watched films done by great storytellers like Mark Cousins. He is so good at making you feel like you are in it. In the case of Soufra, over the course of the two years shooting I just wanted to put the audience in the tight spaces of the camp to let you feel like what it must be to live in that space, at times suffocating, it makes the payoff that much greater when they get outside.
What is the main thread of the story depicted in the film? Can you fill in story gaps for people who might be unfamiliar with the lead characters?
The thread of the story is pretty simple: it is the pursuit of the food truck by Mariam, the main character, and those on her team. The story is not really about the truck though, it is about hope, pursuit of dreams, determination and the power of a women to take her life an dignity back through food and community.
Peru and Fujimori: still far away from reconciliation By Marianella Kloka 3 January 2018
The latest protests by the people of Peru in recent days as a response to the amnesty given for " humanitarian" reasons to former President Alberto Fujimori. Highlighting the forces interested in imposing such leaders around the globe in order to serve their special interests is another way towards reconciliation. Writing a book based on real facts, a book about the orders he gave for massive executions could also be a redemption process and an asset for all mankind.
All of the above could be done by the convict while still in prison. If he really wants to understand the dark side that pushed him to do such terrible actions, the fact that his freedom is restricted would not be enough to stop him.
What if taking the initiative for some of the above mentioned actions were not enough for the people to be convinced to enter into the same path of reconciliation with him? One thing would be certain: his own process towards reconciliation would have started, despite the fact that people do not accept it. We are talking after all about people who, for no reason, had to deal with torture, victims and losses. Well, even those people have to do something about this burden and must find a way to cope with what happened to them if they do not want to continue poisoning future generations. Even if Fujimori were to be kept in jail, because justice was being done, this would not stop the poison.
Dream Act Would Boost NY Economy and Tax Revenues by David Dyssegaard Kallick, 22 December 2017
The Dream Act would allow immigrants in New York to contribute more fully to the state economy, boosting long-term state's $1.5 trillion GDP by at least $1.8 billion a year, and increasing state and local tax revenues in New York by $62 million, according to a report released today by the Fiscal Policy Institute that draws on analyses from the Center for American Progress and the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.
The Dream Act would make it possible for undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children to live and pursue their careers here without fear. Immigrants who are already in the state could find jobs that better match their skill level, boosting the output of New York's businesses and increasing both the immigrants' salaries and the state's tax revenues.
The Congressional Budget Office recently released a study of the impact of the Dream Act that did not look at the economic gains, but found that at the federal level there would be an increase in both tax revenues and government spending, with a net addition to the deficit of about $25 billion.

NYIHA MEDIA is pleased to release the best in Haitian cinema with the educational release of Arnold Antonin's 'One Can't Miss an Eternal Life'.
