“The Politics of Art”
by Safia Southey


____________________
Safia explores the relationship between media and politics through the experiences of those working on the ground. By interviewing major figures working in formats varying from music to graphic novels to poetry to journalism, we pose the question of what platforms are most powerful to address major issues in today’s society.

“Cineparadiso”
by Irene Fodaro

Alfred Hitchcock a dit : « For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake». En effet, quoi de plus agréable que de regarder un film tout un mangeant une énorme part de gâteau pour en savourer les saveurs les plus sucrées, les ingrédients les plus recherchés, les combinaisons les mieux choisies et les contrastes les plus palpitants? On cherchera à vous faire découvrir tous ces « goûts » du cinéma à travers des réflexions, des critiques, des opinions qui, en quelques lignes, à partir d’un film, en dégageront les thèmes et les aspects les plus éloquents de notre réalité ou, encore mieux, de notre part de gâteau. Ce sera alors aussi une opportunité pour découvrir quelques nouveaux films et aller remplir les salles du ciné de Menton !

Dans cette chronique:
“Loveless”
“Lady Bird”
“Un Paese di Calabria”

“Women.”
by Negar Mohtashami Khojasteh

____________________

Meander through the stories of powerful women; angry and strong, crazy and fierce, the spirit of warriors living within them as they face the struggles of their world. Different as they may be, and from cultures often misunderstood- from the villages of Uganda, to the Mosques in Iran- they stand unwavering at the different injustices they face. Marvel at their humanity, and the unifying factor amongst them all: womanhood.

“Coup de Gueule”
by Fatine Maussang

____________________

Les yeux rivés sur le moindre recoin des paysages, des rues qui m’entourent, curieuse de ce qui m’entoure, engagée et passionnée, je vous livrerai tous mes coups de gueule, à chaud, à froid. J’ai toujours eu ce besoin de coucher sur le papier tout ce qui m’indigne, me blesse ou m’attriste m’a poussée à rédiger des chroniques engagées. Mon mantra ? Mettre les phares là où tout le monde veut fermer les yeux. Ce “tu”, ce “elle”, ce “il” avec lequel je prends la plume, c’est moi, c’est nous, c’est vous.

“The Menu is not the Meal”
by Sophie Morris

____________________

Does language affect the way we feel? The way we communicate? The way we learn? The way we think? The way we identify? How does language affect politics, sociology, religion, sexuality, and our studies?

Just like the food you taste cannot be represented by the words on the menu, reality cannot always be captured by the limits of our language. Or can it? Coming from someone who always has more questions than answers, join me as I explore the role of language in our lives, or in other words, the role of the menu in shaping our meal.

“Dans un Monde sans…”
by Benjamin Wucher

____________________

Un avenir où tout est possible, un monde parallèle meilleur, des grands principes absents, cette chronique explore les possibilités que permettrait un “monde sans” mais aussi les malheurs qu’il pourrait engendrer. Loin de tout rêve utopiste, chaque article me permet de donner libre cours à l’imagination, à un monde sans limites et pourquoi pas à faire passer des messages de temps en temps !
