MacMachine Some edited footages I shot during a New York City trip for Human Rights Watch International Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival in June 2005. Nearly mugged wandering around. It's a little tribute to this lovely city and people but NOT to Bush and his administration. It got this wonderful creative aura energy that hard to explain. Anyway, this video here will tell on how I felt being in the "City That Never Sleeps". Edited with the background music of U2 from the album "All that you can't leave behind, New York - 2000 ".

James Nachtway, one of the most renowned war photographers of the late 20th/ early 21st century, just received the 2007 TED Prize. His pictures - which range from the Vietnam War, to the Rwanda genocide, to the Middle East conflict - are not only beautiful in composition, but also captures, in an unadulterated fashion, human sufferings during times of conflict. Most importantly, Natchway's powerful still images gives a voice to the world's voiceless and forces viewers to reexamine the world that we live in.
