In the May issue of the Al Jazeera English digital magazine, we go behind the lens, onto the frontlines and into the diverse world of filmmaking.
The Al Jazeera English digital monthly magazine showcases the very best of Al Jazeera’s journalism from across the globe.
In this edition, we highlight some of our most compelling films, documentaries, and the people who make them, bringing to the fore the human stories behind the opening credits.
Featured in this issue are:
- Bahrain: Shouting in the Dark - An award-winning film that journeys into the heart of Bahrain's Arab Spring, and takes an up-close look at the protests that fought to see the light of day
- Fear, Anger and Politics - A look at being Muslim in a post-9/11 United States
- Beirut Photographer: Memories of War - A photojournalist returns to Beirut to go behind the stories and people behind his iconic images of Israel’s 1982 invasion
- Interview with a Rapist - A face-to-face encounter with sexual predators in Cambodia, as the filmmaker tries to look into the psyche of people who commit such crimes
- Putting an Afghan Face on the War - A visual feast that explores the gentle faces and human stories behind the more tragic headlines in Afghanistan
This edition also features compelling personal narratives and filmmaker notebooks as we endeavour to take the audience with us on a journey through film.
