AROUND NORTH AMERICA
Part 2 : Total Meltdown
« No London Today » is an immersion into the world of five young refugees, Chafik, Aron, Abraham, Henok and Ermias, waiting and wandering in Calais, trying illegally to reach England.
"No london today". That's exactly the words Arman told me the first time I met him. We were sitting on a bench, in the street. I was on holidays in Calais, a city in the north of France, he was waiting for the night to fall, to reach England as a clandestine. That's where this strange trip started, a still trip in another Calais with no beaches, no terraces and no place in the sun.
he Dumont d'Urville scientific station in the Antarctic is one of the most remote places on earth. Jonathan, a young researcher, is about to spend on year on this station.
After four months of summer, the longest winter on Earth is settling in. The pack ice replaces the open sea. With temperatures as low as –37° C and winds of up to 300 kph, even the most resilient animals leave the region. The station soon becomes inaccessible, and everyone leaves -with the exception of Emperor penguins... and a handful of people who stay behind.
When the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk tragically sank in August 2000, official accounts raised more questions than they answered. What caused the explosion that ruptured the sub's watertight hull? Why did rescue efforts take so long? And, perhaps most troubling, what about the American submarine that was reportedly in the same area of the Barents Sea?
