The Slow Poisoning of India The Slow Poisoning of India is a 26-minute documentary film directed by Ramesh Menon and produced by the New Delhi-based The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).

The film showcases startling case studies from Kerala where villagers in Kasaragod district are paying a heavy price as it has been exposed to pesticide spraying for many years. But some farmers are bouncing back into better practices, and this is a silver lining shown towards the end.

BBC Learning - Open Lab Rennes vue du ciel pendant 24 heures Benjamin Keltz , journaliste, est également photographe et observateur de la ville. Il nous livre " Rennes, vue du ciel pendant 24 heures ", une vidéo réalisée en stop motion à partir de photographies prises toutes les 5 minutes. Je trouve toujours ce genre de vidéo des plus parlantes : nous y voyons les flux d'activités au cours de la journée et de la nuit, avec la composante cruciale de la lumière (sans parler de la qualité des photos, cela va de soi). J'ai déjà eu l'occasion de parler de la photo et de la vidéo comme outil d'observation, d'investigation ou encore de visualisation des villes. Le projet a été mené sur (1) sur Rennes, (2) par Benjamin et (3) sur les flux urbains.
