old men of a community-as the prosecutor says


I'll also pass along a piece of handy information I recently picked up. Looking at nontheatrical Websites, you'll see a lot of very high prices, intended for purchase by universities and other institutional buyers, often in the $300-400 range. But be advised that these companies will frequently sell their titles at midrange home-video prices to individuals who solemnly vow to use them privately in the home. If you can make bracelets clearance that vow, don't be daunted by sticker prices without making an inquiry; the DVD you desire may be more available than it appears.

Early in my browsing I came across various nonfiction titles focusing on cufflinks clearance African issues. Africa is chronically underexplored in mainstream cinema, so I'll comment on three of these pictures. The most eye-opening and hair-raising is World of Witchcraft (2009), distributed on DVD by Filmakers Library. Its setting is the Central African Republic and its purpose is to reveal the dismaying fact that the CAR's penal code has active statutes prohibiting and punishing the practice of witchcraft, for which people are arrested, prosecuted, and imprisoned on a regular basis all over the country.

To assemble this report, director Daniel Bogado traveled around the CAR digging up facts and opinions about the witchcraft situation. Actually, there turns out to be a single opinion that virtually everyone shares: witches are real, dangerous, and ubiquitous. Physicians, lawyers, judges, and nuns believe this as firmly as uneducated villagers; the lone exception Bogado finds is a nonbelieving district attorney who handles witchcraft trials by arguing against the charges he's supposed to be prosecuting. Adding to the nightmare, accused witches are invariably the powerless women, children, and old men of a community-as the prosecutor says, nobody ever charges a politician or army officer with casting spells or pendants clearance eating a neighbor's heart. Produced by Insight News TV, an independent company based in London, this powerful movie casts a troubling light on political and cultural dysfunction in a nation so poor that last year a United Nations report ranked it fourth from the bottom on the human-development scale. The privileged West should be paying much, much more attention to such things.
