greetings from berlin and a warm welcome to arts and culture so many of our normal activities were impossible during the weeks of corona lockdown but computer games were a welcome distraction day or night and we'll look at how computer games are evolving in the new pandemic reality and also in the pipeline. the 3rd of 3 good to medal laureates 42020 south african writer and journalist. is connecting the african continent through the treasure. and british photographer topics 80 captures the extravagant pomp and flair of the step purpose of culture in but it's a view in republic of congo. well the
pandemic has spelled the profit for the gaming industry because during all of those hours days and weeks the people spent cooped up in their own 4 walls during lockdown they certainly played a lot of computer games normally the world's largest computer games trade fair games column would have welcomed the industry to cologne on thursday but the event has gone digital this year and it's clear that lessons learned in lockdown are shaping the games world to come developing games outside the mainstream with original ideas that's the formula for developers at this small hamburg studio . here they've put players in an ethically difficult place they become part of the surveillance machine and spy on others. little by little we start to question things saying is that really necessary don't you think you may be went too far with them if you are trying to point
a finger it should really come from the players themselves. this year game's calmness taking place not in cologne's message but online developers have built an online platform with groups you can visit with avatars the games industry is changing with more women playing and more unusual games suddenly some of them have added relevance. in a kind of fish you don't have to get so many smaller games now deal with isolation with loneliness. i believe games are also a medium in which you can process things artistically and many individual developers work with. us at the vanguard of this trend sea of solitude a girl fights her feelings of hopelessness anger and loneliness they appear in the shape of monsters. became message game developer camellia gephardt came up with the idea which is influenced by her own experiences
. it's a long way from shootouts and car racing. i sometimes wonder if changes in the games industry are due to women increasingly moving to the forefront it's worth mentioning we've brought our topics and our emotionality to the studios . and a greater diversity as in the game tell me why we're twins rediscover their own past and one of them is transgender. or the action game held blade where the main character battle schizophrenia the roger. and the blockbuster the last of us part 2 features a love story between 2 women then these narratives are examples of a growing trend. but there are still those there always will be for whom the games are just a bit of fun you can hang out with friends but there's a growing courage to tell more complex stories that all. the hamburg studio
has just hired game developers to work on a new game this too will be a journey into the world of emotions. was part of our coverage of the good to metal 2020 our 3rd and final laureate is south african writer and journalists who cares about weiner congratulations go out to a woman whose work has had an incredible impact on her home continent and beyond as she drives home the multiplicity of african identity. one of the pins that. gets my goat. when i get referred to is black african right that i'm like how. why must i have this little what you call it where
i work and i just i want to be a good writer. is a woman unafraid to speak our minds born in zambia and now based in kenya the south african novelist children's book writer journalist and publisher also founded and curated a pan african online literature festival in response to the cope with 19 knockdown she's prolific and multi-talented and her energy seems to be inexhaustible how to she juggle her many interests with very little sleep. i think if you love something you always make time for it writing almost always has a political subtext her debut novel the madams was published in 2006 it's the story of 3 well off middle class women in post apartheid south africa torn between career and family traditional and modern female roles in today's who aren't emma sensually prall. who very proper pen i'm very pro women
and i think this generally comes out in my books what the 3 all have in common with about identity. i'm writing for readers but more importantly i'm writing for people with or reading is boring and i'll fair i've got a book where you finish once i finish one period and tell me about boiling. the franklin's book from 2019 suki's one van i took part in a hosted by the girl to institute a feminist a citizen of the world she's a regular gas to international literary and. i think i'm an itinerant by nature in a way i have always been an outsider looking in if you were but i also give a insider's perspective. suki's where vanna is the 1st african woman to win the gutter medal making her
a role model for aspiring writers. or when you're an artist you want to go beyond just speaking to one people it means a lot where it can resonate with it with somebody in berlin or with somebody in munich with somebody in brazil as a publisher amplifying african voices is one of our top priorities but maybe we need more voices that are more visible a lot of african countries are only like 5060 years from colonialism we're still growing we are still young. keyword colonialism and now to a fashion subculture that originated as a response to colonial powers in but at seville in republic of congo and in kinshasa in the r.c. less sap a play on the french slang seppi which means dressed up so young men adopt the
elegant dandy style of their colonisers and make it their all of the culture stands in stark contrast to the crushing poverty of the area where the sport there elaborate duds in defiance of their circumstances and british photographer takes i.e.d. captures that is rather viva in a brand new book. show time on what may be africa's most unusual catwalk. but these people are professional models the congo is dandies men and women for whom the perfect outfit yes everything. they live in slum communities and then suddenly you see somebody who's dressed like a $1000000.00 you know they were under the board were kids or jacket or. $500000.00 crocodile shoes by fashion in the poor neighborhoods of kinshasa or
browse of you disappear are celebrated for their highly developed sense of style and the way they move after their day job says taxi drivers are laborers they change into their gladrags the more expensive the better. supper is an acronym for societe does be on cereal it depends on an eagle or the society of taste makers and they can people. now where. it's a unique subculture in the congo or borders one of the best ways to be a rock star is to look like a rock star like rock star walk like a rock star and behave like a rock star but in a very very kind and gentle way terek sadi is not the 1st to be fascinated by the subculture but no one has delved as deeply into it as the award winning british photographer he visited the congo repeatedly for more than 3 years. self-assertion
through style the supreme movement arose in the 1920 s. in response to colonialism young congolese wanted to dress better than the french or belgian colonial rulers as a way of maintaining their dignity in the face of oppression. to this day the sup defy their poor living conditions by keeping up appearances. sadie was allowed a glimpse into the sopranos closets they often say for years to buy a designer suit the average wage in congo is around $900.00 a year this apparel combined designer clothes by global labels with their own creations. not to pick them up as objects and put them on a sofa or on a park bench or in a noisy place in town are actually wanted to understand. where they live how they live how they save money for. close how the community reacts so all my work was
done around literally within 500 meters of the homes tearing sadies new book due out next month shows that some are more than just close sources to distinguish themselves with a talent for improvisation. and despite their difficult living conditions they are the ones in charge of their faith and for that they are beloved in their community . how want to do it. which clothes are choose how creative i become how much of my own personality overtakes those clothes how i walk in the street the dignity i have the grace and elegance of the artistry of combining things that you'd never imagine combining that go together and putting it all together with the philosophy of peace and harmony. tranquility now that is for me what is operative. dandyism
as a form of peaceful protest and colonial resist in the congo they like to say white people invented this clothing but we made it into art. and finally extraordinary times require extraordinary measures british street artist banksy has financed a ship to rescue refugees attempting to reach europe from north africa via the mediterranean sea where the vessel is named. after a french feminist an artist it's painted bright pink and sports but it's his trademark balloon girl artwork this time rather in a life vest and holding a heart shaped life well it's not the 1st time that banksy who's known for his socially critical works has made a stand in the refugee debate. and there's a hopeful note to end on don't forget to visit our web site for more from arts and culture and until we all meet again all the best from us in berlin and.
the. w.'s crime fighters are back together with the africa's most successful radio drama series continues from the only disowns are available online a little more so you can share and discuss on w. africa's facebook page and other social media platforms crime fighters to mean now . been robbed of their soul that's what if people experience is when their heritage is taken from them countless cultural artifacts were brutally stolen from africa by colonialists and carted off to europe. what should be done with the stolen north from africa. stolen soul starts september 7th going to w. .
this is near me at the capital of me share the city is a crossroads for people desperate to make their way to europe no matter how dangerous the journey many come to the bus station at night to meet with the traffickers they gather here. zoe receive also show in kyoto they always will i know there are networks of smuggling and people traffickers at the pa station who will help them continue that journey bullshit as if they'll do what. they're under growing pressure because of the forced repack traditions of slaves feel of food on. the side so it's become more dangerous. yeah so it's riskier and more expensive now is to share. we can't openly film here the police in
asia have launched a crackdown on migrants and traffickers and tensions are on the rise we meet a frightening young nigerian woman who also hopes to reach europe. got problems at the police dept it might help. how much you have to pay for that but is it is it with you that it is out there also. so that that. she seems quite worried that they're all afraid. that your money has been stolen here everything it was the police they also took my cell phone if wallet like that it's even more dangerous north of me i may. this young man already tried once to make his way to europe and almost died along the way they would obviously want to kill you for no reason look at this video general you know. he shows us
a video he took a month ago when traffickers abandoned him in the middle of the desert. there it is their bombs all suddenly they said get lost that's the path you're on your own. they gave the 2 of us one liter of water one bottle of. the place and hope to reach europe is more than 3300 kilometers away to reach sicily they'll have to cross the desert and the mediterranean ever since your began trying to stem the flow of plug ins this has become the most dangerous and deadly scrooge. is one of the world's least developed countries population growth is soaring and poverty is rife despite the country's abandon. natural resources many young migrants asylum seekers hoping to reach italy passthrough need for that adding to
the strain to intercept a regular migrants before they reach libya in 2016 the european union convinced the share to monitor its borders more rigorously in exchange the e.u. provides funding and expertise i. think you can't certainly share one of the poorest countries in the world to stem the flow of refugees we recently hear a piano ambassador in the i'm a. cross the path with you in europe in the european union's main concerns are to reduce the number of deaths in a void humanitarian tragedies and dispel the myth of europe. that's the game of regular flow of migrant sounds definitely been reduced in asia has mobilized its security forces in the north arrested traffickers and confiscated vehicles being creased checks on the border with libya are bearing fruit pocket if
we. about 750 kilometers northeast of me are made ugly days is the 2nd major hub the african migrants initiate the city has played a key role in his strategy to deter migration. positive because people who set out from here on the long journey through the desert put themselves in great danger in a hate filled in a small. city in the heart of the sun held region has long been considered west africa's gateway to the sahara. it's also home to handcuff the e.u. civilian capacity building mission in a share with pressure from the e.u. some days ago nizkor passed a law against human trafficking but the crackdown has not brought business to an end. where these are wars. canisters for sale looks every my provisos when they try to do the whole tree that provide us to live where it takes 3 days and these
are sticks they used to hold onto the floor of the truck and keep that balance still is a piece of it. that works it has to. work and these protect against the dust yeah i present one of. the cover you have if this must have been a busy place where you don't like. not anymore the harder you have. the shia am i used to work as a people smuggler illegally until 2016 he helped hundreds of migrants pass along this route into debian every week. this is where the desert begins. agadez the smugglers have now been displaced by new unscrupulous traffickers from abroad they easily slip past the checkpoints has been set up in the city. the 1st now interviewer asks how many ways there are to get people out about it is
countless ways we're told because of the risk the smuggler has given up his business but he knows what's going on. the traffickers in the desert are criminals real criminals that's even true here and i go to this one so they go to the transportation companies and intercept the arriving migrants dickey via they saying i want to go to libya come with me i have excellent contacts in while i'm book which way. and then they just drop them off in the middle of the desert 3 or 4 up and only the migrants are being tricked by a brother they shouldn't have trusted partner connection men going to look when it's for. the shop because who are still in business hide their clients from the police in shelters on the outskirts of the city of a contact helps as. in excess. of them.
this is the this area is called the gator migrants hide here waiting to leave libya after allegedly. we find dirty rooms without electricity or running water each one accommodating dozens of migrants the previous night 60 made their way towards libya this 12 year old boy from sierra leone was left behind he didn't have enough money for. it. for the u.s. fish. caught. it but it's a. struggle for eat. because. for tomorrow. i'm from the ivory coast i'm 17 i lost both my parents there
during the 2010 crisis and i had no one to help me so i left. once we were supposed to buy a notebook for school and the teacher said something that really struck me you know what a long break in my book school isn't for poor people. if i knew he was right school isn't made for us i couldn't afford school supplies i said that with money i could have continued my studies i told myself what good does a diploma do me if i can't find work i should leave i would rather suffer somewhere else here than in my home countries would have a problem. with it you want to go to germany do you think you'll be treated well there. physically they respect human rights it'll be fine. i mean not many of us have skills but can't do anything at home where kids get bus because we have no money by the way the applause she got that there are
a lot of hidden talents here are so vital that what are yours. so if i don't cook usually football i make music not really musicality i wondered if these hearings are on the way here we face difficult situations that we were wrong . that we were arriving at a checkpoint but that's and i demand money from you be about i will free if you don't pay they search you go and take everything they find out whether. it's from a family i've been here for 7 months or so for 7 months this has been my life no one sends me mileage and i'm stuck but i trust in god how do you get food when my friends buy food they give me some they don't have much if they don't have anything i don't need to give it you're trapped here why don't you go higher. but i prefer
it here better than living free at home good luck i did i my heart can find peace there it's good you know what is waiting for you in the beyond it see it through and they're. there through good hard times i mean that nothing ventured nothing gained basically any idea well but you might be detained or tortured or drown in a way. that it was solidly life love you let mikey's dangerous. you have to take risks that if that's god's will still see you last year. the methods employed by the illegal traffic is growing ever more crucial but it turns out to be fairly easy to make content literotica who operates here he's waiting for us in another part of the city called the t. and we'll throw up shoulders in that it is. find these walls the traffic is waiting
to meet with this despite the back and he continues to bring migrants across the border. who are not what we have our contacts i'm a well known smuggler so you know i have my network. when the police head west we go east south or north. or not with g.p.s. you can vary your routes there are thousands of ways now thousands thousands who and this is because of the 2015 law people die in the desert my colleagues abandon them in the desert if they run into the police or a military patrol i think it isn't. so if you live. there and disappear. it's terrible. but why if they catch you go to prison. for 2015 laws to blame
for all of those deaths because. he got how many people do you do with. got out about 80 to 150 a week pretty prices have gone up we used to ask for 180 euros but now it costs up to 150 euro summit. business is good oh yes it is i make over 3000 euros sometimes 4500 a week just got through. not bad so just that's true my family's doing well. in the past when migration happened in the normal way everyone here was content to go to slaughter them and a thought. but now you can forget all that. this is. to help traffickers leave the business the european union office the financial assistance equivalent to about 2300 euros. that's less than this spent in
a week. shimon rights activists rashid kolo is concerned about the impact that the e.u. policy is a having on his city and on the safety of migrants. and you know what something the government wants us to believe that has stopped migration didn't let him still be us but that's not the reality instead one has a managed is a new and even more criminal structure that can close it and what about the aid we're constantly promised where is it only promised 2300 euros to people who give up human trafficking for good. when when other people used to earning 1800 a month. or to propose them it's just a one off payment what. is the danger today is that illegal
traffickers secretly take people with them. and send them straight to their deaths door a lot more it happens nearly every week but really every week should be but it's shocks young people from sub-saharan africa who are simply left to their fate in the middle of the desert in the cellar of the stock. the journey has become more dangerous and more expensive to wear that many many migrants become stranded in other it is and many resort to sex work. b.c. arrive here penalises they have nothing at all for us so they have to make money somehow so it's measure of their. these women offer their services to less than 10 euros hoping to eventually scrape together enough money to pay traffickers. these young migrants have bought water canisters and food in preparation for their
journey. in the ghetto with air traffic a has given them accommodation while they wait they cook will be their only meal of the day i have. got to. what i want is that it. was you wouldn't. want to go all over the world while in the courtyard a few young women gather around another woman a few years older the nails we soon realise what is happening the nigerian mafia has come to neighboring nation to recruit sex workers. altogether. artists gird. the young women don't realize that the older woman is a paid recruiter she doesn't want to show her face and tells us her sister is waiting for the group in libya. what kind of job should she told you you were going to do. like myself that she is walking with us again this lady do you know you
spoke that is the danger for girl that rap and sometimes the order you could press to say well we know i'll. let you know with a small gesture there are crucial ends the conversation. in. the transit camp run by the international organization for migration or i.o.m. helps tend to migrants who've been sent back from libya many a traumatised mentally and physically but despite the dangers of the journey many of the people here have attempted it several times. you know how does the i.o.m. office the food and shelter if they prepared to return home from school. i know. this whiteboard lists the nationalities of everyone in the camp so you take guinea
for example 182 migrants are from there up and. right now there are 399 people here and all you can remember the number compiled it was like up and is enough just to see how many have you helped in 2017 we had 5000 people as i did said 5000 men women and children who have survived the terrible journey the camps doctors try to help as best they can even see that they arrive here war now and with all kinds of illnesses sometimes they're totally de hydrated but when they're crossing the desert just they drink just a few swallows of water to ease their thirst that's not nearly enough they need 3 to 5 liters a day used to. mean if they don't get that they might die within as little as 48 hours without water you'll survive 3 days at most socially suv it looks he looks. what happened here let me tell you through your time looking at all cornish so.
he goes i suppose for to introduce you to 2 creatures just because i get it so when i get here there's the to be too social bit i'm struggling for the courage to do when people could do you see many injuries teachers police. more effective when you can be. yes we get a lot of people with gunshot wounds. the ones get infected and we often have to amputate the leg. there because you sort of go see before these gunshot wounds come from bandits demand that migrants hand over everything they possess you have to do you do for them. he says you see this if the migrants refuse you refuse to do any. they get shot at the force you see the bundle she brought up but i actually don't sometimes i migron suffer gunshot wounds when the army shoots at the vehicles that they're in but much else. the local traffic is still live it
tends to libyan ones. these men from cameroon over there risky to replenish between warring militias. so one of you know i want to go home this is receiving terrible things migrants were beaten raped castrated this happens to a lot of people. why do you need to be. just people dying like flies. so often your mind is hell on earth. a woman arrived with her 15 year old daughter. they took away her daughter and sold her on the mother wants to intervene and i'm going to show him so they locked her in a dark hole after that i never saw her again as you know i gave water to a man i couldn't understand he spoke english the next morning they killed him as if he were a cockroach that was the worst effect is right somehow. siller
does it get out of the desert to the mediterranean the abuse if i tell my brothers don't try this absolutely not i didn't want to believe it and when i saw it for myself i almost went crazy because that's why i tell any migrant thinking of doing this don't take this route. the trip to sub in the middle of the libyan desert takes at least 3 days and then it takes weeks if not months to reach the capital tripoli this stage of the journey through libya is even more perilous. in tripoli is one of the most dangerous cities in the world the area around the city is under control of the u.n. backed government there are countless militias the country is awash in weapons.
thousands of migrants in the city live crowded together under wretched conditions there are about 30 official detention centers under the nominal control of authorities in addition there's a substantial number of apartments and factory buildings where criminals hold migrants under lock and key and demand ransom for them. this man is desperate if his girlfriend has been detained by traffic is in tripoli for 2 months he's finally been able to talk on the phone to her he tells me the traffickers want to sell her who get rid of. the i ask him how much ransom they demand he says that recently they demanded 450 euros and his girlfriend told him the same amount. she called him again just a day ago and told him that she and the other women are not being fair. he says he is desperate to get her out of there somehow.
to squeeze as much money out as possible from the families the kidnappers tell the prisoners to call them. the man recorded his girlfriend's phone call. a little. by the hour just as i live in a place i'm at is unbearable we were heading towards a silly but the libyan coast guard quarter. since then i have been in this prison to even get raped tear and night arabs come and take women with them to be sold to brothels and. i don't want that to happen to me. because a mother is. only a few international organization still maintain an office in tripoli one is the un refugee agency or u.n.h.c.r. which is holding a press conference here the u.n. agency are tries to obtain the release of his many migrants is possible but it has to focus its efforts on people who would be entitled to apply for asylum more
players were allowed to visit the official centers for we've carried out about a 1000 visitors this year and they've always managed to get out refugees almost one pounds 900 this year so place listen to this was a. yeah they are from god as are those. that do go they tie the women up to it is it that if they want to sleep with a woman they tie up her arms and legs and hang her from a right before the law or that art that russia will. see that is horrible and painful to hear because what can be done to help her to feel it sounds like one of the unofficial detention centers in the official ones conditions computer but not as terrible as the us if she's in the hands of traffickers now international aid organization can gain access to hoxsey. so that's heartbreaking yes it's a terrible situation and. it's impossible to locate the woman in tripoli but we
are able to contact her by phone. and i don't have the number of the cell phone the traffic is gave her said that she can beg her family for the money played all the always looks call her in italy. for sure hello. hello. on the 2nd attempt we managed to talk to her her family has already paid money but the kidnappers want even more. yes it's money and the problem is when you fall into the hands they do everything they can to make money off you know people they can't get a ransom for they sell for 750 year nights that's what happened to several women hand and that scares me. right now they're demanding to prevent of around $400.00
euros for my remarks. i can't get my hands on that much money i've already begged my family if i don't pay jail cell me for women with babies and pregnant women they charge $1700.00 for the other women 1200 euros. visits and is meant for the 600 us please i want out of here i can't take it here anymore thank you and i know. in tripoli people are being bought and sold in what is being called a modern slave trade. these canadians have just been freed from a libyan prison by the un refugee agency under one condition they have to return home immediately that's required of them that any out. of the
box office it's not easy should we want to go home of the on station. a plane is being chartered for them until that happens they have to wait in the hangar at the airport. this allows reality you know we all wanted to go to europe and see if we would do better there but we didn't make it in libya they're killing us all so we'd rather were timecard this or to make it a bit better because you've been totally i'm a ca to doesn't my by. he has broken i was terribly cold all night get busy every day i am glad to go back yes as glad as i would have been to make it to europe it was so terrible why did i ever leave so much blood from up above the shop to see it it i was shot in the head that you shot you he saw you see the soldiers from the libyan army and. hear that you going to get i was traveling with a boy and it was it they shot him in the foot and then i am national desert. my
family was already in mourning often they thought i was dead but i fell asleep and not hostile on the 7th day of ramadan and i didn't wake up again until the 24th day . she said you should get home i called my mother and told her i'd been saved she didn't believe me this it is if it was good my son died 3 weeks ago she said i said no it's really me and sent her a video so she could see me if i wanted to go back home ever since because my family wants to see me and you see video of what you tried to go back many times but have been arrested and detained over and over again i want to please you see stuff deal about me i was in prison for 3 months myself when i got out but hardly a week later i was back in prison again but even now i still dream of europe after all this the 3 fifth's it difficult to take a shit yes even with all the difficulties i had to overcome if i can find a way to get to europe that's where i want to go that's my dream i guess i.
feel i owe him and the u.n. refugee agency can only help a fraction of those in need the others are held in captivity until the traffickers finally decide to get rid of them often the migrants a packed on a rubber boat $100.00 or $150.00 at a time the boats a barely seen would be big this is how the migrants a supposed to cross the mediterranean it's the final stage of a cheney and a terrible ordeal. every year several 1000 people drowned in the mediterranean. in 2017 at the libyan coast guard became an additional threat mission lifeline a german sea rescue charity recorded this footage during a mission the coast guard demanded they hand over the migrants they had just rescued even issuing warning shots at the vessel. secondly that every night
the libyan coast guard sets out to intercept migrants who try to make the crossing but yes they have repeatedly been accused of colluding with the militias and traffickers but europe relies on the up for. the coast guard receives funding and technical support from the european union especially italy. the libyan navy spokes person says the aim is to turn back migrants before they reach libya. we are not europe's police for the. often we see along the mediterranean to signal to migrants they have no chance of reaching europe. and then they won't even come to libya to begin with and. that the. migrants who were turned back to land a sent to prison many end up song to traffickers migrants from the mediterranean take enormous risks to avoid being intercepted by the libyan coast guard.
