Dr. Steeve Coupeau Goes One-on-One with with Lebanese Director of '1982', Oualid Mouaness at Lincoln Center, 8/21/21
(Director Oualid Mouaness/Courtesy of Director)
'1982' is a necessary continuum in the discourse for peace that started with “Waltz with Bashir” (2008) and “Lebanon” (2009). There are no solutions in wars. They should be remembered in the hopes that history stops repeating itself. Our way forward is through a human understanding of our past.
How were you able to capture the aerial war footage?
The aerial war footage was arrived at and recreated in post‐production through an examination of archival images as well as memory. All that was added was special effects.
What is the current level of conflict between Israel and Lebanon?
Lebanon and Israel are technically (and sadly) still at war and the feelings are raw on both sides. The core issue is that no side is allowed to see the humanity in the other. So much so, that it's almost taboo to consider in some circles. Lebanese people live in constant fear of another conflagration. Only a just peace can last.
What are you most looking forward to in terms of your next project?
As to my next project, there are several in the works. Only two are Lebanese. The other two are US‐based projects. They are all at varying phases of development.

20 Years Later, We Will Never Forget September 11, 9/12/21

We also must continue to comfort those in mourning and need. Although the collective trauma from that horrific day will never fully heal, the support and unity displayed by all New Yorkers ultimately made our city and borough come back stronger.
Many of us observe this day as a day of remembrance, for the members of our community that lost loved ones and family on 9/11, as can be found throughout the city.
We Will Never Forget.
Chile Will Now Reclaim Water but Will the Country Un-privatize Fresh Water? by Michelle Langrand at Geneva Solutions, 9/5/2021
(Rocio Egio for Geneva Solutions/)
Around 1.4 million Chileans ‐ eight per cent of the population ‐ don't have access to drinking water or sewerage, and rural communities that have to compete with large companies for water access are hit the worst.
Lorena Donaire, spokesperson and founder of the Chilean environmental organisation Mujeres Modetima, has witnessed first hand the effects of water shortage in her home region of Valparaíso, where the group of women delivers water to communities.
She recalls one time seeing an old couple at a creek filling a three litre water bottle. “That bottle had to last until next Monday ‐ and it was Wednesday. When we arrived with the water, one of them hugged us and cried. In that embrace I felt the desolation, the loneliness, the abandonment of the state,” she told Geneva Solutions.
The government has decreed a water shortage in over a third of the communes. It set up a system where trucks deliver water to the affected communities, but rights groups say that it is far from enough.
