Welcome refugees from Africa at village tourism (UNHCR)

One snowy day, 56 refugees from Africa arrived in a small village in the eastern part of France (about 800 people). Four months from now refugees will live in monasteries with the support of French NGO "France Horizon" and will build a foundation for living in this village. People from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, Central African Republic, Mali and Nigeria escaped to the Thal-Marmoutier village. Some people have arrived via Libya and Niger. The refugee acceptance of this village is supported by the warm heart of many people. Will these days be in the village in Japan? It is Abdul that will oversee the NGO 'France Horizon'. We are running all day in various tasks, from accepting procedures, arranging for housing, hospital reservations, soap distribution. Silvian Anne, an elementary school teacher, is responsible for preparatory classes before refugee children enter the local school in the monastery. I say that it is a day that is stimulated by the children who are willing to work and always try hard. Teacher Muhammad is in charge of the classes of adults who are studying French. In order to blend in with French society, I teach about self-introduction and how to convey family situation, as well as about cultural differences such as election and split of powers. Nicolas who escaped from the Democratic Republic of Congo and gained French citizenship in 2009 has become a reliable counselor in social and educational aspects. It is his role to be able to understand refugee's feelings better than anyone else. Pierre and Dennis living opposite the monastery say that there was anxiety about accepting refugees at the village at the beginning. But the idea changed by touching refugees. I am sincerely welcoming them and I want to get familiarized with the village life as soon as possible. Mr. Distel is told that "I am happy that I have contributed even a little to the refugees' new life."

The movie you want to see The square The compassionate sanctuary (The Square)

The sacred sanctuary of The Square, a movie that won the highest prize Palma D'Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Swedish native director Louben Ostrund wrote about the opportunity to make this work "It was revealed that it was a katsuage shot by boys who happened in a shopping mall in Sweden. Even though there were plenty of adults on the spot, no one was a victim I did not try to help the child, he also did not ask for help, just what the "bystander effect" appeared was explained. This is a scene where a performer (Terry Notary) imitating a monkey at the dinner venue will get inundated and confusing. It dismantles the mechanism of intolerance not only because of the uncomfortable of people but also because people are indifferent. The fact that everyone suddenly begins to knock on himself after someone has begun to cast an objection is similar to the actions of people in the press and the net. In the comment on movies, it seems like a movie that can be evaluated and criticized from various perspectives. Some remind people of "bystander effect" that everyone is experiencing, disturbing "heart", and at the end of 2017 some people mention "the world's top Christmas tree PROJECT" riot. It's a funny satire drama movie that wraps people's "heart balance" with laughter (^ ^) The New York Times is "probably the first movie that drew contemporary art world with correct insight."
