“Though most commercial sealing is conducted by Inuit in the Arctic, anti-sealing activism has created a perception of the industry that denies their central role in the sealskin market. To reinsert themselves into the international discussion, these Inuit activists must inconvenience the fundraising campaigns of animal groups by using all the tricks in the social media book, and invent some of their own along the way, like “sealfies.”National Film Board of Canada

“In the days following the terror attacks of Sept. 11, with his white-supremacist rage fully triggered, the self-proclaimed “Texas loud, Texas proud” redneck Mark Stroman began “hunting Arabs,” which involved shooting people he believed were Muslims from the Middle East. The State of Texas convicted him of murdering a convenience-store clerk and sentenced him to death. The Israeli filmmaker Ilan Ziv visited the killer on death row and eventually befriended the man he came to see as a remorseful enigma. Astonishingly, the lone survivor of Stroman’s spree begins a campaign to get the man who shot and half-blinded him off death row.”The Globe and Mail
