just on country director of care in my pool to mozambique thanks for your time. now so the nice protest as a breakthrough in talks with me this they have agreed to form a joint council to pave the way for civilian rule so that. ousted by the military and we have this month protest one photograph has been capturing some of the images of the upsizing i.e. brahim. talk with him in the capital hot. for thirty two year old muhammad this is history in the making has been documented the sudanese uprising since it started in the suburb today he's taking pictures of the incoming caravans joining demonstrators in front of the army headquarters in the capital shoved. my pictures of the coming generations the suffering experienced by people in my photos should not be
forgotten. when we took to the streets we were just calling for our rights we should not have been met with some of the violence we see in the pictures of the store. at the heart of the protest area mohammed displays his photos for his fellow students. in many ways the ongoing fidan has become a microcosm of what the people here want their student to be walking around you can feel the pride they have not only in reclaiming public space but also their freedom gatherings like this would not have been possible under the old regime. a larger art movement has emerged from the uprising even this billboard has taken on new meaning protesters have hung clothing in honor of military personnel who disobeyed orders and refused to open fire at them and there are. some it says his photography not only documents of the revolution it is also a way to help the people who needed. to get out of this picture shows a man waving
a flag as he is being loaded on to the. back of a truck. i would be using human punching him so that he put the flag down. on holding up the flag card so. there's a picture help to get this man released because it spread so much so they were able to locate him and have him freed. for passers by mohammed's work reflect a turning point for sudan and its people. i feel love when i see the details of these pictures. these pictures are an expression of the bravery the strength and the patriotism of people who have overcome thirty years of oppression under a corrupt regime to get a display shows that sudan has a lot of artists and people with many talents. and good mohammad realizes to disown
you found freedom is very fragile and that a lot of work needs to be done for the spirit of the state and to be made a political reality. that we learned as a people that we can be united and we can be one hand in this transitional period we the sudanese people have to accept each other. does not know what exactly the future holds for sudan but he is determined to bear witness to it with his camera. the nigerian film industry popularly called nollywood is the second largest in the wild by the sheer films one thousand five hundred films a year many film stars begin the stages are reports i went to the lagos the festival the biggest of its kind in west africa and i met one last film star that is. you don't touch me like that on your final rehearsal for twenty one year old. prepares for his very first professional performance to meet up with
