With unique access, Israeli Filmmaker Yotam Feldman reveals how the Israeli arms industry is making vast profits worldwide, partly thanks to its activities in the Occupied Territories.

“This is my beloved Little Red which I have kept for six years.  She has a nice body shape and a beautiful colour. My dream is to send her to an international Arowana competition."

In #Malayisa #Arowana fish farming has become a multi-million dollar industry. But money is not the only attraction for Chew, an avid collector, who has dedicated his life to breeding the world’s most expensive ornamental fish: http://tiny.cc/mcv3tx

“This is my donkey. And her name is Mama Punda. And I love my donkey.”

The #Kenyan Island of #Lamu is a place where donkey traffic jams are a daily occurrence, the largest NGO is a donkey sanctuary and donkeys are key to earning a living.

Aren't we all - born to die? 

None of us will get out of here alive.

The subatomic particles of which we are all composed will continue to be recycled just as they have since the Big Bang.
