Title:The white king review
Description:At Saturday’s world premiere of The White King at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, husband and wife directing duo Jorg Tittel and Alex Helfrecht claimed that it took a long time to get their debut feature off the ground. One can only assume the project was green-lit in the wake of The Hunger Games and Divergent series of films, young adult actioners with similar dystopian settings and themes, which went on to be box-office smashes and cultural phenomenons. Regrettably, The White King doesn’t come close to emulating the success of the aforementioned franchises, sabotaged by a banal script and a serious lack of thrills. Prospects for any fan following, or an eventual cult status, look bleak. A series of comic strip vignettes outline the totalitarian world of The White King during the opening credits, sparking a flash of intrigue regarding the film’s style. It soon becomes clear that this initial gimmick has little relevance or consistency with the remainder of the film, as what follows is a by-the-numbers directorial treatment from Tittel and Helfrecht. Working with what is presumably a limited budget, the production has clearly had to cut corners in its depiction of “Homeland” – the futuristic backdrop where the film takes place – much to the detriment of action set pieces and visual effects.

Finding virtue after a war crimes verdict -

Finding virtue after a war crimes verdictA special court set up by the United Nations during the Balkan wars of the 1990s made its final and most important verdict on Nov. 22. It found Ratko Mladić, the former commander of the Bosnian Serb military, guilty of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. While the trial was the most significant since the Nuremberg tribunal, it did not end with any general message about some of Europe’s worst atrocities in the 20th century.

In post-conflict Colombia, land-rights and funding for peacebuilding face off -

In post-conflict Colombia, land-rights and funding for peacebuilding face offWhen South African mining company AngloGold Ashanti (AGA) arrived in this central Colombian farming town ten years ago, it promised residents like Herver Oliveraula “rivers of milk and honey,” he recalls. Mr. Oliveraula was skeptical, he says, but also wanted to trust that his community – and country – could benefit from the natural resources underfoot. It laid out mining concessions from the government, granting AGA rights to explore in nearly 80 percent of the municipality – including Oliveraula’s 6-hectare farm.

A Thanksgiving lesson for the #MeToo movementWhen he proclaimed the national holiday called Thanksgiving in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln did more than ask Americans to be grateful for God’s blessings during a time of civil strife. The #MeToo movement has now helped lift a social stigma for many abused women while bringing to light past wrongs.
