I was part of a two person crew that covered CIFA’s International Forum 2017 in Monaco. Our job consisted in producing end of the day bulletins wrapping up the main themes of the conference, plus interviewing over 40 attendees. The conference focused on how finance and civil society can work together to address global poverty and development.

Since the EU referendum in the UK about their membership to the European Union, I have been doing live spots translating British politics and current events for a Mexican/Hispanic audience. My work requires me to understand the inner workings of #Brexit and explain in Spanish what would be important for their audience.

As tourism booms for Uganda’s national parks and visitors flock to see the mountain gorillas, many Batwa warn that the price of a thrilling encounter with a gorilla in the wild is not just the $600 dent in a visitor’s pocket, it is also the humanitarian cost to an ancient people, displaced, living in poverty and largely forgotten by the authorities.

I have recently joined the ranks at The Student Journals as a film and culture writer. The pieces will start to trickle out and I will list them here as soon as they are published.
“Ever since his feature length film debut, Rushmore (1998), Wes Anderson’s style has been undeniable. Well before “hipsters” were a “thing”, Anderson’s films were chuck-full of thick rimmed glasses, vintage clothing, very specific colour palettes and impossibly symmetric frames. Don’t believe me? Have a look at this fabulous curated tumblr: Wes Anderson is the Original Hipster. If you look back into his work you would think it all comes from the latest “Urban Outfitters” catalogue, but it is quite the opposite. Anderson was the original hipster before “being a hipster” became mainstream. All you have to do is watch his latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, to see the consummate lens of an experienced filmmaker that has been refining his style for a couple of decades.”

Dr Maya Angelou was definitely one of them.

Interstellar is a completely different creature to his previous films. It is not about superheroes or about mind-bending plots. It has a LOTR-worthy running time of 169 minutes and even Middle Earth would seem small in comparison to the vastness of the universe told through Nolan’s lens.
