In northern Morocco lies the Spanish enclave of Melilla: Europe on African land.
On the mountain above, live more than a thousand hopeful African migrants,
watching the fence separating Morocco and Spain. Abou from Mali is one of
them – the protagonist in front of the camera, as well as the person behind it.
At the fence, they have to overcome the razor-wire, automatic pepper spray
and brutal authorities. After every failed attempt, they return to Mount Gurugú,
scouring for food in the nearby villages, trying to uphold some sort of order in the
camp, and building up their confidence again.

Carbon For Water | Evan Abramson, Carmen Elsa Lopez | Kenya | 2011 | 26 min
In Kenya’s Western Province, most drinking water is contaminated. The wood many Kenyans use to boil this water to make it safe is increasingly valuable. Women and girls, who bear the responsibility for finding water and fuel, often miss school or work while seeking both fuel and water. Some even encounter sexual violence. Yet waterborne illness remains a daily–and life-threatening–reality for them and their families. Carbon For Water introduces audiences to the inspiring people who face these hardships, and explores one company’s innovative solution for improving the health of millions of Kenyans and the environment in which they live.
