Beijing (AFP) – Guided by their white cane, spectators sit in the armchairs of a cinema in old Beijing. Blind or visually impaired, they “watch” the film thanks to the passionate narration of volunteers who describe the scenes to them.

Zhang Xinsheng, 51, doesn’t miss any of these weekly sessions. He takes the metro for two hours every Saturday, using his cane and his GPS application which shows him the directions to follow.

After losing his eyesight at the age of 20 due to a degenerative disease, he rediscovered his love of cinema through the Xinmu (“Mind’s Eye”) Club and its small group of volunteers.

“The first time I listened to an audio description film was in 2014. It’s like a new world opened up for me,” he explains.

“I felt like I could understand the plot despite my blindness. Clear images formed in my mind.”

Dozens of blind or visually impaired spectators now attend these free screenings.

The narrator in the room, equipped with a microphone, describes what is happening on the screen: the facial expressions of the characters, their gestures, their clothes or even the weather.

It also details the visual clues necessary for understanding the film. Like the passage from a scene of falling leaves to a scene of snowfall, which reflects the evolution of the seasons.

– Sweat –

Today, Xinmu is hosting a screening of the British film “A Street Cat Named Bob”, in which a cat helps a homeless man solve his drug problems.

“The snow is falling on London, a city in England. It’s a bit like Beijing but the buildings are not as big”, explains the narrator, Wang Weili, between two dialogues dubbed in Chinese.

“A man with binoculars – kind of long cylinders you use to see things from afar – watches James singing on a street corner with Bob the Cat.”

No spectator talks or nibbles on popcorn. All listen religiously, eyes closed.

It was while telling a blind friend about the American film “Terminator” that Wang Weili, a former businessman, had the idea to comment on the films to visually impaired people.

“I could see the sweat running down his forehead as I described the action scenes to him. He was really into it,” he smiles. “He kept telling me: keep describing to me what you see!”

– Dinosaurs –

In 2005, with his savings, Wang Weili started renting a room in a house in Old Beijing. With a small TV, a used DVD player and twenty chairs, the club was born.

His makeshift cinema at the time, measuring 20 square meters, was full at every screening.

Describing films to a blind audience, however, can be a challenge, especially those with a strong historical context or elements unknown to viewers.

Before the screening of “Jurassic Park” for example, Wang Weili gives them models of dinosaurs so that they can touch them and visualize what they are.

“I watch a movie at least six or seven times (…) and I write my own very detailed script,” he explains.

In 15 years, the Xinmu club has screened nearly a thousand films.

It now organizes its screenings in larger and modern cinemas. Due to the pandemic, it also broadcasts its films in audio description on the internet.

– “Few opportunities” –

China has an estimated 17 million visually impaired people, eight million of whom are completely blind, according to the China Association of the Blind.

In recent decades, cities have built tactile lanes to guide the visually impaired, added Braille markings to elevator keys, and even allowed blind people to take civil service exams.

“But it is true that they have few opportunities to participate in cultural activities,” Dawning Leung, Hong Kong founder of the Audio Description Association, told AFP.

“Even audio guides in museums are written with sighted people in mind. They tell you about an object’s history or where it was found, but rarely describe what it looks like.”

Associations are campaigning for the law to impose audio descriptions for films or television shows. Without much success for the moment.

“Cinema makes it possible to make the city more beautiful (…) and to better understand its challenges”, explains Zhang Xinsheng, the visually impaired spectator.

His favorite film is the Indian blockbuster “Dangal”, where a father-trainer encourages his daughters to overcome taboos to become wrestling champions.

“Sometimes, like the heroines in the movie, I tell myself that I can change my destiny by working hard,” says Zhang.

Zapping But! Football Club FC Nantes: players at the end of their contract in 2021

Willem Geubbels was presented yesterday at noon at FC Nantes. Loaned by AS Monaco after months of hardship, the former great hope of OL faced questions from the press without blushing and confirming that he wanted to bounce back with the Canaries to relaunch a stalled career. While expressing his new ambitions, the former great hope of OL was well supervised by Antoine Kombouaré.

The FC Nantes coach spoke of his ambitions for this season. “Nothing has changed,” he said. We still have the same objectives: acquire the points for maintenance as quickly as possible and we will see later. The idea is also to place the club as high as possible but it will pass after a hold. When you’ve been through a season like last year, you have to show humility above all. “

Relaunched in the throes of the transfer window, the FC Nantes coach still said all the bad things he thought. “We (the coaches) all agree that the transfer window is too long, he breathed. We talk to each other and in the end, it’s even a disaster for the clubs. It’s a period that we don’t like because we are working, but at any time, the players can leave. It disturbs. But we do with it. There is a regulation that is put in place and that’s how it is. Our fight is to build a team, to win matches. At each transfer window we raised the problem. But there are people who are there to make decisions. “

to summarize

Present at the presentation of Willem Geubbels on Friday at FC Nantes, Antoine Kombouaré spoke about his sporting ambitions after the summer transfer window. But also on the consequences of this damn transfer period.

“It is not my inclination to go for a health pass at school”, Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer said on France Culture on Saturday September 4th.

>> DIRECT. New day of mobilization against the health pass in France

Will a health pass be required for teachers and students from 12 years old? “We never close any hypothesis”, first replies the Minister of Education, “this has been the case since the start of the health crisis”. Things “vary because we try to be as adapted as possible to the realities that we encounter, so in the future we can have that”. But the establishment of a compulsory health pass, “that is not at all my natural tendency”, insists Jean-Michel Blanquer. He believes that the school “must be open to all, respectful of the convictions of all”, so “school cannot be exclusionary”. On the other hand, the minister “strongly encourages the vaccine”, the “assume to do it”.

Asked about a risk of resumption of the epidemic after this new school year, Jean-Michel Blanquer ensures that “nobody can answer this question”. In reference to “international studies and the experience we have accumulated”, he thinks “that we are in a position to control” the epidemic “by the protocol we have”, and by vaccination. He assures that “The very latest studies that have just come out believe that the Delta variant does not cause more serious cases in children”, contrary to fears that had been formulated

The proportion of classes closed due to cases of Covid among students “is tiny”, has also assured the Minister of Education Jean-Michel Blanquer. “We only have a very small number of cases”, he said, without being able to give an exact number, a few days after the start of the school year. He points out that in Reunion Island where the students have resumed lessons “two weeks before the metropolis and where the health situation is comparable, we are currently a little below this figure of 0.2%”. The Minister “think that in the short term we must be in this order of magnitude”. Jean-Michel Blanquer ensures to look at the situation “with a lot of vigilance obviously”.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(7331) "

Former Minister of Productive Recovery Arnaud Montebourg officially announced his candidacy for the presidential election, Saturday, September 4, in his hometown of Clamecy (Nièvre). Advocating the “remountada of France” (in terms of industry, employment, the environment or even democracy), he hopes to transcend the left-right divide by defending France from the “Sub-prefectures” and without party support.

The former socialist, who in recent years has become an entrepreneur and producer of honey and ice cream, has been slow to establish his strategy, as evidenced by “Test balloons”, by the admission of his entourage, his media interventions in recent months. Contamination with Covid-19, which has “Laid flat for four months” at the beginning of the year, finished disrupting the timing of his declaration.

Saturday afternoon in Clamecy, in a small village hall in front of about 300 people, he heard “From this France which is the witness of the collapse of the whole country”, he confided to Journal of the Center, being the champion of “Sub-prefectures” put forward by “Yellow vests”. “There is a movement of society, of rejection of the city, and it is this movement, the return to the land, that I want to put in power”, had explained the future candidate.

The former lawyer, 58 years old, will propose, in his themes and measures, a speech heir to the “First left” by François Mitterrand and Jean-Pierre Chevènement, taking the space he considers gaping between the “rebellious” Jean-Luc Mélenchon and the socialist Anne Hidalgo, affirms his entourage.

However, Mr. Montebourg will campaign by avoiding placing himself on the left-right axis, like Mr. Mélenchon in 2017. The “rebellious” have had time to see their rival coming in recent months: “It will never be the third time that he has declared himself. There is the Montebourg of January, that of April, that of September… ”, exclaims, hilariously, Alexis Corbière, close to Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who regrets: “He should have been by our side. He sees that Mélenchon is a little lower and he thinks he can pocket us. He’s testing… I hope it won’t end in support of the PS. “

Bet on a “cultural victory”

Like the deputy for Seine-Saint-Denis, the left-wing staffs do not hesitate to mock the candidacy of the former socialist, whom they say without a party or finances to support him. What condemn it according to them to be only one “Mushroom of the month of September”, as quickly disappeared as declared.

The question of the financing of the campaign is in the process of being settled, assures the entourage of Arnaud Montebourg. As for the supports, there will be no “Shallot race” for some “Elected officials who only have an impact on politicians and the media”, points out Mr. Montebourg’s entourage. The former minister, who wants to stay away from the PS apparatus, will not participate in any primary, he who lost two, in 2012 and 2017.

On the other hand, the convinced of the first hour Laurence Rossignol and Mickaël Vallet, both senators, and François Cocq, who will represent the fringe of the disappointed with Melenchonism, will make the trip on Saturday. On the activist side, the Engagement movement, which can be joined without paying a membership fee, claims 4,500 members.

To reach the second round, the former minister hopes above all to capitalize on what he considers to be a “Cultural victory”, by developing themes cleared up several years ago and now central to the public debate, such as the questioning of globalization, European protectionism and the VIe Republic.

Arnaud Montebourg, who claims to be able to speak with the right and had started a dialogue, remained without follow-up, with Xavier Bertrand, however has a long way to go. He aims for nothing but to be “In the second round” of the presidential election. But for the moment, it does not exceed 5% in the few polls that have tested it, in a context of extreme left-wing competition, between LFI, the Greens, Anne Hidalgo and the Communist candidate Fabien Roussel who also hears poaching on the lands of Jean-Luc Mélenchon and is already calling Arnaud Montebourg to join him.

Former Minister of Productive Recovery Arnaud Montebourg officially announced his candidacy for the presidential election, Saturday, September 4, in his hometown of Clamecy (Nièvre). Advocating the “remountada of France” (in terms of industry, employment, the environment or even democracy), he hopes to transcend the left-right divide by defending France from the “Sub-prefectures” and without party support.

The former socialist, who in recent years has become an entrepreneur and producer of honey and ice cream, has been slow to establish his strategy, as evidenced by “Test balloons”, by the admission of his entourage, his media interventions in recent months. Contamination with Covid-19, which has “Laid flat for four months” at the beginning of the year, finished disrupting the timing of his declaration.

Saturday afternoon in Clamecy, in a small village hall in front of about 300 people, he heard “From this France which is the witness of the collapse of the whole country”, he confided to Journal of the Center, being the champion of “Sub-prefectures” put forward by “Yellow vests”. “There is a movement of society, of rejection of the city, and it is this movement, the return to the land, that I want to put in power”, had explained the future candidate.

The former lawyer, 58 years old, will propose, in his themes and measures, a speech heir to the “First left” by François Mitterrand and Jean-Pierre Chevènement, taking the space he considers gaping between the “rebellious” Jean-Luc Mélenchon and the socialist Anne Hidalgo, affirms his entourage.

However, Mr. Montebourg will campaign by avoiding placing himself on the left-right axis, like Mr. Mélenchon in 2017. The “rebellious” have had time to see their rival coming in recent months: “It will never be the third time that he has declared himself. There is the Montebourg of January, that of April, that of September… ”, exclaims, hilariously, Alexis Corbière, close to Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who regrets: “He should have been by our side. He sees that Mélenchon is a little lower and he thinks he can pocket us. He’s testing… I hope it won’t end in support of the PS. “

Bet on a “cultural victory”

Like the deputy for Seine-Saint-Denis, the left-wing staffs do not hesitate to mock the candidacy of the former socialist, whom they say without a party or finances to support him. What condemn it according to them to be only one “Mushroom of the month of September”, as quickly disappeared as declared.

The question of the financing of the campaign is in the process of being settled, assures the entourage of Arnaud Montebourg. As for the supports, there will be no “Shallot race” for some “Elected officials who only have an impact on politicians and the media”, points out Mr. Montebourg’s entourage. The former minister, who wants to stay away from the PS apparatus, will not participate in any primary, he who lost two, in 2012 and 2017.

Coline Berry-Rojtman, eldest daughter of actor Richard Berry whom she accuses of incest in the 1980s, says she is “revolted” that her father plays the advocate of women and children in a show which resumes at the end of October in Paris , according to a letter consulted this Saturday, September 4 by AFP.

In this letter dated Thursday and addressed to the President of the Paris Bar, Me Olivier Cousi, the complainant wrote that “if my father denied (in the media) the accusations against him, he has however since this complaint, publicly admitted facts of serious repeated domestic violence “.

“He remembers that he seriously hit my mother, Catherine Hiegel, who has since lost an eardrum,” she says. “It is as a woman and as a complainant that I find revolting and insulting that a person who has already admitted some of the facts of which he is accused against women can claim to be the spokesperson. of the latter and of children victims of criminal offenses. “

A preliminary investigation has been opened

Coline Berry-Rojtman filed a complaint on January 25 against the actor whom she accuses of incest in the years 1984-85. A preliminary investigation was opened the same day by the Paris prosecutor’s office. Richard Berry denied “with all (his) strength and without ambiguity these filthy accusations”.

From the newspaper The world, he however “recognized” the “blows” which would have been brought against the mother of Coline Berry-Rojtman, Catherine Hiegel, as well as against another ex-companion, Jeane Manson.

On October 31, he will resume at the Théâtre Libre in Paris the show Pleadings, in which he puts on the lawyer dress and reproduces five pleadings, including one by the late lawyer Gisèle Halimi in defense of abortion, or another by Me Jean-Pierre Mignard in defense of the families of Zyed Benna and Bouna Traoré , died in an electrical transformer in Clichy-sous-Bois in 2005 while fleeing the police.

Coline Berry-Rojtman asks the president “not to be so complicit in this imposture by remaining silent in the face of this misuse of the lawyer dress.” “If Richard Berry wants to continue to interpret roles, that it does it, but that it stops taking the dress and the title which make the greatness of your profession”, she writes again.

“We have our new Helmut Schmidt! “ After listening to Olaf Scholz come to host a public meeting in a Biergarten on the banks of the Spree, Friday September 3 in Berlin, Roland Biela does not hide his enthusiasm. “You can feel the type who has his feet on the ground, who is serious, solid, who does not bring her back and does not hold people down. He will make a very good chancellor ”, affirms this retiree who defines himself as “Social democratic sympathizer”. Before adding: “He still has to be elected. However, there are still three weeks before the elections, and when we know the capacity of the SPD to do stupid things, there is something to be worried about. “

What Roland Biela says corresponds to what many Germans think, potentially seduced by the reassuring sobriety of the current finance minister but less by his party as such, and finally quite cautious in the face of a campaign whose outcome above all seems very uncertain to a large majority of them.

The fact remains that in the last wave of the ARD-Deutschlandtrend barometer, published Thursday, Olaf Scholz does indeed obtain impressive scores, and is well ahead of the two other candidates for the chancellery, Armin Laschet (CDU-CSU) and Annalena Baerbock (Greens ). Deemed to be the most competent by 55% of those questioned (against 14% for Mr. Laschet and 7% for Mr.me Baerbock), he is also considered the most credible (43%) and the most sympathetic (42%), two criteria on which he is ahead of his opponents by more than 20 points. And when we ask the Germans for which of the three they would vote if the election of the chancellor was by direct universal suffrage, the answer is clear: Scholz 43%, Laschet 16% and Baerbock 12%.

Laschet’s odd

How to explain such figures? “The luck of Scholz is above all to have in front of him a CDU-CSU candidate of immense weakness. If Laschet was not a candidate, Scholz would probably have no chance ”, says Albrecht von Lucke, editor-in-chief of the journal Sheets for German and international politics.

The study of the popularity curves of the two candidates confirms this analysis. At the beginning of July, Armin Laschet and Olaf Scholz obtained almost identical scores when voters were asked to say which they would vote for as chancellor. A month later, the CDU-CSU candidate had lost 13 points, while that of the SPD had gained 12. In the meantime: the floods of mid-July in the Rhineland and the famous image of Armin Laschet filmed hilariously in the background of Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in one of the devastated municipalities. “Laschet’s behavior during the floods especially this laugh perhaps closed the doors of the chancellery to him, estime Albrecht von Lucke. At the same time, Scholz made no mistake. On the contrary. As finance minister and vice-chancellor, he quickly released aid, which made him appear as the one who comes to the aid of people in need. “
