Kenza, 15, and her little brother Mahdi, 13, regularly stage themselves on social media in an escalation of petty cruelties and humiliations.

Pressured by his sister, Mahdi ends up going.

Karim Moussaoui wonders what comes closest to an Opera in his country, Algeria. Accompanied by a film crew, he travels to the desert in search of women who he was told were singing the “Taguerabt” (Gourara song) in caves. As they travel, a doubt arises: does this place really exist?

Chances to cultivate your children to become digitally creative-minded precious ones!
 
Do your children become addicted to phones and computers? Technologies are rapidly changing, so there is no field where one can forget those tech things.
 
It is wise to prevent your children from becoming a slave to digital tech. But, it is futuristic to bring opportunities to them so that they can use the tech and generate their ideas as digital literates.
 
In collaboration with CIY.CLUB, based in Australia, the Institut français de Birmanie would like to introduce your children to the Coding subject. The approach we would present to your precious one during the workshop is the international coaching system, which is different from the classroom learning process but focuses on the individuals’ strong and weak points.
 
At the same time, we will explain Block Coding to the children so that they can develop their computational thinking and understanding of algorithms.
 
Furthermore, the method of conduct is Gamification, in which children will enjoy coding and immerse in logical thinking activities.
