this isn't just whistling a happy tune on the spanish canary islands whistling can make up an entire conversation. hi everyone and welcome to another fun filled edition of your own x. with me your host megan lee here's a look at what else we've got in store for you today. in light of the ongoing pandemic fashion designers are finding new ways to present their collection. and to revisit the studio of british artist capture excuse for a closer look at his optical illusions. but 1st we start off with a 12 year old german actress who has already put herself on hollywood's radar helena's angle has gained international acclaim for her latest role in the western drama news of the world with superstar tom hanks before making the film
1:03 am
a single admitted she didn't even know who tom hanks was while now her role alongside him has earned her both a golden globe and a screen actors guild nomination we met helen as ingle in berlin for a chat about her acting achievements so far and what's next for her. hollywood has great expectations for this young woman from berlin germany's up and coming star is moving ahead. i find it weird that i'm not saying it's right i don't been shouted at and on my meds for not returning spit showing up played the orphan you handily on bad in the western loos of the world who grew up with the kill one native american people one day she meets captain jefferson college kid played by tom hanks the german school girl hadn't met the american actor until shooting had already started. as
1:04 am
a tough 1st time i met him i was in the makeup trailer getting fixed up for the shoot which we were actually supposed to meet later on he just came in and i wasn't prepared at all and he said hello i'm tom hanks it was so overwhelming and at that moment i didn't know what to say and we ended up laughing about it a lot. later even learned the keil well language for her role. playing buffalo. she had heard. good. e.p. . we had 6 weeks to prepare and all mexico before the shoot the get on time for god and then we had another 3 weeks training actually you know what an hour and a half every day after school so it was really important to me to learn exactly how derrick to think that they think morningstar and while high i think in a straight line and to learn about their culture or to what you can certainly the
1:05 am
art one skill she didn't have to learn was how to ride a horse she's been doing that since age 4 on that score she was even quite a bit ahead of her screen partner but she also learned a great deal from tom hanks the. advice like always be punctual know your lines and be nice to everybody. and you should always after help to your screen partner in the last scene for example we both ended up crying he cried all over again and every time just so i be able to and i thought that was really amazing that he was able to keep doing that every time helena already has an impressive acting career behind her she 1st said in front of a camera at age 5 she landed her 1st lead role in a feature film at age 9 brilliant she tackled some extremely challenging parts. helena made a splash with system crash impressing audiences with her raw energy she played 9
1:06 am
year old benny. a severely traumatized out of control girl. and number of scenes proved extrude the challenge is. no matter what you always have to bear in mind this is what's in the script and the way the director wants it out that's the role and i just have to do it i'm an actress and this is my profession because that's what the film needs if you're close with the people you work with well and you can laugh about things that chops not half bad. the drama one critical acclaim and over 40 awards and the german film award for best actress went to this part with your help paula keep on. really not saying. oh my god. the role became helena's breakthrough for her international career.
1:07 am
the director paul greengrass saw me at the 2019 berlin film festival and said to his assistant i know what she can do with her eyes and he thought it was just so overwhelming that i did much work casting call in berlin or well me and then to london and then i knew i'd get the part done on. helena spent 3 months in the united states to shoot news of the world in that time she became close friends with tom hanks. was his role was kind of a fatherly grandfather and he got to be incredibly important to me we still write each other very often and tell each other about what they're up to like yes and that's really great that we have such a good connection now at 1st i never would have thought we could get off and what does the future hold. and well my ambition is to please myself and the audience just to make great movies and maybe have some impact on society or just various topics like in system crasher plus i'd like to have a star any walk of fame but i think most important of all is to keep my feet on the
1:08 am
ground and really clear idea of what i'd like to do. and news of helena's world just keeps coming the latest is that. she's been nominated for a golden globe. the show must go on even in a pandemic therefore fashion designers have gotten creative with how to present their old couture collections at paris fashion week the shows were drastically different compared to past years with either no audience members or a limited number of spectators sitting at a distance so to increase the reach of their audience many designers have turned to making films for their catwalk creations then these fashion films are put on social media we had a behind the scenes look. this story started fendi show when paris featured the likes of american actress demi moore and big name international top models like
1:09 am
bella had lead king moss and naomi campbell. but there was no audience for press. in the uk could still buy chanel was also presented in the graph of paris in front of mostly empty chairs with just a few guests present such as french actress is not a yard and vanessa paddy who respected social distancing. fashion journalist godfrey deni watches the could to a shows online on his computer but how to create a riches the cost to develop. of course the whole point about big fashion shows is there are probably good raw material for social media. never mind the magazines even the people don't buy from the roots just look at the long live so the big shows are being driven by social media. so they have to create something.
1:10 am
just because of the trench model louise dishy beneath doesn't think it's all cool to show by chanel it's much like a normal fashion show in their constituents would normally we get one shot at going down the catwalk in front of a live audience pumped with adrenaline and all worked up backstage about facing the photographers and journalists see what this year is much calmer if you can we do several takes so they can be edited into a perfect video. the new collection from the your was presented in a high quality 15 minute fashion film that took 3 months for dior designer maddy had read see a curious and italian director material got on there to produce. a reason designer judy of all the year has also the. a director when he specialized in 11 years ago one of his dresses would go for 40000 euros or more and despite the
1:11 am
pandemic he hasn't seen much of a drop in sales even if his customers mainly from the middle east and asia are currently looking for somewhat less extravagant clothes his 9 minute fashion clip boasts about the same budget as a fashion show but making a film is more work. and if a show is much easier the clothes are already on the can for about 13 minutes and models just have to walk in a film on the other hand they have to really act they have to decide with the cameramen what scenes you shoot and how and then comes the editing process you really have to direct the piece the people sit down but how they behave is a stroke so that if you got a show you do a traditional catwalk and just walk in a straight line but in a film i can express myself and i like that better ok fashion films has become a dedicated job with some brands such as gucci now showing a whole series here is a scene from gucci says. her fashion companies such as sauna
1:12 am
all have started organizing any shows and are relying exclusively on social media with creative films the depths designer do all victims of end of life is presenting their new aqua tool collection in an empty art center just outside amsterdam they say some changes are here to stay there or she should. celebrate it where is the importance of social. doorsteps. should we speak your words so we just. use it for. fashion films will probably never come to completely replace physical fashion shows but brands have proved ingenious in finding creative ways to present new connections and they will not hesitate to tap this potential to with fullest.
1:13 am
now you may think that it's a bird tweeting but actually it's someone whistling most of us whistle for pleasure or to get someone's attention without thinking about a deeper meaning but did you know that whistling was developed as a way to communicate over long distances on the canary island of whistling is still used to communicate and it's even taught in school you know max reporter hendrick belling traveled there for a firsthand lesson. songs like bees off be heard on the mountains off. the island goes on just whistling for fun they're communicating with one another across great distances.
1:14 am
what to be honest i haven't understood anything but that makes me sort of curious because that's the way how people can communicate over here unbelievable i think but a good reason to listen a little bit closer. i set out with a fin your daddy just to discover the secret of the civil camaro the withstood language of the volcanic island. america's the 2nd smallest of spain's canary islands an archipelago in the atlantic some 1500 kilometers from the spanish mainland. the island distantly populated with a scattering of little mountain villages an estimated 20000 people know the wistful language the other usual way of communicating originated in these mountains which up to 1500 meters high opinion that he has heard of his grandfathers go belly up.
1:15 am
as whistled language was invented because of the island's geography. you know it's hard to reach and has many gorgeous. made it easier for us to work with the livestock. we didn't have to walk up and down the mountains to talk to each other anymore. we could just do it by wessling from on high. civil monsters like when your dad yes can make themselves understood at distances up to 3 kilometers the tradition dates back thousands of years but the advent of mobile phones eliminated the need for this form of communication and the wisdom of language seems doomed to extinction yet today young people have rediscovered wood for themselves. but i mean. by all means and not tomorrow because it's kind of a heritage and culture and it remains an active part of our lives to this day. i learned to whistle when i was 6 years old and i grew up listening wherever i go
1:16 am
whistling is a part of me you could say it flows in my veins and it's very important to me. it's my turn to try. sadly i failed utterly. so i set off in search of a teacher in sons of us john de la camaro the capital of the island with a population of just over 9000. but i don't have much time to take in the sights i have to get to school. the special thing about the metal is that is even taught as a compulsory subject in schools here that's unique in europe and my chance. so i'm back in the classroom my one on one lessons begin with a greeting. good
1:17 am
day i'm kiko carre and where are you. live. from all in your head the union. he said will go marrow in its present form is based on the spanish language the sounds of which are condensed into a few with looking notes 2 for vols and 4 notes for a consonant context helps clear up any misunderstandings everything you'd like to say with speech you can also say by whistling for example my name but on cisco i can either say francisco or whistle it. in 2009 unesco declared sort of vocal marrow intensive google tear it a sculpture commemorates this centuries old tradition and inspires me to give it
1:18 am
one more try. ok it's much more difficult than i expected to communicate only by whistling but it's very 1st amazing to listen to this old tradition at least aspects of dating as a landscape in which serve america was born. and you can see more of hendrix whistle ing adventures on our you tube channel. next up we are going to get a new perspective on art we have british painter patrick hughes now he is known for his unique 3 d. optical illusions and not only did he invent the technique he also invented the terminology we met up with the artist in his studio to learn more about his view on a reverse spectrum. seclusion is on 3
1:19 am
dimensional surfaces. they play with trap as always and perspectives to trick the viewer in seeing what's not really there. british artist patrick hughes calls this reverse specter for the 1st perspective the painter developed the technique itself . it's extraordinary because it uses you to create the movement. to make the move through the machines inside but my makes it work by having you move the painting seemed to me. he's got a team of 6 to support him in his london studio the actual creation is a very involved process. it can take up to 3 months to complete one image. the 1st step is to build a 3 dimensional base out of wood. then patrick you sketches out his ideas.
1:20 am
he uses a computer to project his designs onto the canvas then he and his team paint the pictures and oils ceausescu's likes to reference the work of other artists choose by pursuit hall because people like him and i quite like i'm not mad about it i quite like. larger because their walls as though any graffiti are supposed to work on a concrete wall but we like to make out the brick. here patrick he was details his vision of venice. he was quite inspired by it he's clean at the age we added. in the previous like this it's made already in perspective this is more of this is very difficult to my eye and the. side. 1234 will
1:21 am
move against the sky and the end of the judaica across the lagoon on the water here so you see it in a stage now where we've painted the pole outside and they will appear to turn against the background they'll move as you move they will move in synchronicity with yourself like the perfect spot. patrick hughes created his 1st reverse effective picture in 1964 and called it sticking out. but not until the 1990 s. did he set himself to perfect this painting technique. the work titled jazz from 26 teams made him world famous. and mostly draws inspiration for his projects that section he sees all around. when i was 'd a kid i used to think while buildings like apples all pez all. more imaginative
1:22 am
but i don't i don't think. in there in the end buildings are boring you've got to make them alive you make them interesting. the sizes of the reverse effect of works very greatly. as to their prices. some of his pictures have gone for as much as 160000 euros. my work is not just visual is physical it's a combination of the whole person is for to feed and your knees and your legs your body your stomach because you're. so although of course been an intellectual and salt it's all in the mind it's actually all in the mind on the ball. the more perfect feel lesion the more complete the experience patrick hughes creates fascinating perspectives on our world.
1:23 am
moving on now to something sweet and as you can see i am standing on the skyline of copenhagen well this one among other famous skyline serves as an inspiration for baker trout sky she loves architecture and baking so she figured out a way to combine the 2 into tasty desserts well the results are quite mouthwatering . the skyline of copenhagen the eiffel tower in paris the sydney opera house and park well in barcelona these edible works of art are the creations of maria trucks going. yeah i'm primarily interested in the artistic aspects words it's a kind of performance before originally the 25 year old studied architecture in moscow and paris but in 2012 she discovered baking and it became a passion now she mixes her 2 fields of interest and she's found definite parallels
1:24 am
in the process. trust me it's a little crowded there often i shape the casing by hand but i use the mousse like concrete. i can pour it into the form just like concrete and leave or i use the 3 d. models and fill them with ag r. ag r. a japanese deli where form isn't it i've still got i've got a. car copenhagen berlin cake is especially elaborate and took 3 days to complete it's made of short crust pastry with nuts chocolate sponge without flour coffee mousse and a glossy glaze made from salted caramel the optical highlight is the chocolate skyline. what's important is that the landmarks of both cities are recognized. this danish german cake is the pastry chef best known dessert to date it was a special request from a customer who loved both european capitals. of the copenhagen berlin
1:25 am
cake has many textures one such as chocolate coffee and like your so it's something for real men were. baked version of st basil's cathedral of her hometown moscow was of course a must the shape of a cake is just as essential to her as its taste each recalls the flavors of the respective country was a was moscow tastes like the typically eastern european blend of spices but combined with something light and fluffy like the butter cream. it may consist of very simple ingredients about it but still tastes soft and silky. while i can. also interprets the taste of famous architects like this cultural center by renzo piano as a special flavor prevailing. this hotel in spain is a design by american architect frank geary it served as a model for this apple cake with the song to the pompidou in paris hazelnuts and
1:26 am
caramel dominate the complex of flavors absolutely french according to maria. and the famous veins by finnish designer all of our alto has a taste quite reminiscent of nordic countries blueberries no matter how simple or complex or creations work on every new cake begins with a sketch much like the design for a new building would. i think i've invented a new profession pastry architect that betwixt and between i'm not really one of the other well i haven't designed any buildings for some time and i'm not a proper pastry chef either. you know i'm not going to be interested in thinking only about recipes and gravy and it's going to go even so early it gives the ingredients a high priority and uses only top quality products she brings some of them back from her travels to france for the united states it doesn't seem to bother her that
1:27 am
her tested creations end up being devoured. in america that's the most important part of the taste is everything. and with that we wrap up another show now don't forget to check out our website for this week's draw and a chance at receiving a d w backpack with a bunch of goodies inside as always for me in the rest of the crew in berlin thanks for tuning in we'll see you again soon.

1:31 am
a filmmaker is challenging the culture of silence are of sexual harassment. sexual harassment is hugely widespread the term covers a range of experiences from unwanted groping receiving inappropriate calls or messages. to being the victim of a physical sexual assault. a british study of the l g m e t community found that 68 percent of gay bi and translate evil have suffered sexual harassment at work. women are especially affected according to the results of a european study an overwhelming majority of women in france denmark and sweden have been the victim of sexual harassment. but it's a problem all over the world in our next report we need
1:32 am
a filmmaker in egypt in the sashing act to change the narrative around the issue. to her as she heard his latest documentary has touched a nerve in egypt in its the 26 year old filmmaker explores attitudes towards public displays of affection. a previous film she made dealt with the issue of sexual harassment many many in the country downplay the seriousness and extent of the problem dismissing crimes of this nature as mere misdemeanors for tarrasch taking on this issue meant creating a powerful protagonist and then i started to think you know what if i was a great hero then i really wanted to. but didn't happen for me so i interpreted. the protectionist is the 14 year old christian with a keen sense of justice the budding heroine ponders what a good disguise could be and finds the answer on the street.
1:33 am
she sets out in her superhero disguise she hands down men who sexually harass women . a christian woman in the car critics say it's an abuse of islamic values but the filmmaker replies that it's a subject which affects us. thankfully i never experience something very tragic. but i definitely like just walking in the streets of egypt if you like 100 percent or 99 percent of women experience sexual harassment on a daily basis i. have constant calls which is normal woman experience in egypt i had a home and come into my building before. in the film for example men see tight jeans as an invitation. for. the heroine's message in the. above all charter criticizes the fact that sexual attacks are
1:34 am
mostly kept quiet she and her allies want to see that change. the scholars of the islamic us our university are considered the moral compass of muslims in egypt they made their own short film aimed at tackling sexual harassment while the scholars are advocates for what they call decent clothing for women then this it is clear. where there's no justification harassment imagine living somewhere else that has certain dress codes does that justify sexual harassment absolutely not in the event of sexual assault it's a matter for the judiciary. and there in this. go to the or far as he is they say never before have the clergy come out so firmly on the matter. she heard her meets with the heroine of his short film this mina the director wants to broach the
1:35 am
subject of sexual assault in a feature length film just mina is passionate about the project because it affects her directly. when she had her directed yes nina in the short film the actress was just 14 years old i mean obviously the trust was a thing to me and i and i knew what it was but once we started so many and it happened while we were on set they were just like making fun of the costume saying things about my body it really opened my eyes and also to asian and kind of gave me the feminism so ms and take. heart as part to the cinema won't be easy his short film has gained international recognition but in egypt the subject of sexual assault is still to blue and considered inappropriate for the silver screen. but the manager of the independence and a massage here is interested. for she has it's a relief she's often accused of lambasted in egypt. but i'm looking for
1:36 am
international audiences for this film because one i think the topic of sexual harassment in general is a universal topic it's not something that just happen in happens in egypt it happens everywhere it's not just in egypt attorney rashly are on the run represent several women who have exposed sexual assault and violence on social media even naming perpetrators the me too movement has brought many previously untold stories of harassment to light for the 1st time large numbers of women are breaking their silence. their accounts that sprung up over the summer of 2020 brought attention to the issue to a wider audience egyptian women who do go to the police stations to report sexual harassment do not always get. a positive. or encouragement to file the report there's a lot there's sometimes pressure to kind of you know settle the. case
1:37 am
amicably by getting the perpetuator to you know apologize. gender relations are the main theme and she hurt his films she asks people on the street questions they've never been asked before kissing before marriage yes or no she wants to bring tippoo's out of the shadows and into the night terrors she says the subject of sexual harassment is one of the most important in egypt because it's too often downplayed or when it's just like a word. no one really talks about it it kind of say you know it wasn't a big deal just forget about it but these little things add up and they they matter and the affect a woman's life and those who are her us live. so i really think that we should enforce laws to. stop those minute.
1:38 am
repression and discrimination a part of life for many women around the world on our new facebook channel d.w. women you'll find stories about those taking a stand and inspiring others to do the saying d.w. women gives a voice to the women of our world. each . team is a strong independent woman from. mining. i'm 17 years old i'm from. south africa ok i missed it. i'm 17 years old from my lad.
1:39 am
in south africa. i have 7 siblings with. us and my 3 siblings are living with my father. let me play i'm noisy. i don't like. i go away sometimes i just take my stop with telling me you're asking me so i just get annoyed. to be almost all knowing at him to cause i have to get up every day and sometimes of you that. i don't want to go to school today but i have to close i have exams or have to study and on and stuff since i joined some study group so.
1:40 am
i like. you and it also helps you. very aware of yes i. always. i really like i didn't know how to fight in case i. educational psychologist. created some. that can help like. snow. appropriate for children.
1:41 am
dogs. so really. so many things i. was. afraid of. so i think i have it better i really have. these barely ever experience the. constant illumination for granted. early pioneers of official life. and most famously thomas. revolutionized our lives by making light bulbs readily available. and the effects of all this artificial life can have
1:42 am
a damaging effect on both the environment and our health. i have never ever seen anything like this obviously already 33 trillion is a magnitude 6.6 earthquake. in 1904 los angeles was hit by a strong earthquake it cost chaos on the streets and a blackout you see as you look out your window it's probably fish dark red herring the blackouts many people called observatories and even 111 not because the earth was shaking but because they saw a giant silvery cloud in the sky that cloud was in fact the milky way countless stars they had never seen before you maybe haven't heard much about it yet but light pollution doesn't really consume stars it seriously affects our health and the environment. when the 1st light bulb was turned on and the 900 century it marked
1:43 am
a real revolution night suddenly became day. it's great with electric light we can travel work. go out on a party whatever the time of. the pioneers might not have expected the invention to take over the whole world in fact in many places electric light has banished. terms of proportional changes to the world the introduction of this late into the night is one of the most dramatic changes that we've made to the biosphere. this is . he researches artificial light emissions from cities and their impact today more than 80 percent of the world's population no longer experience. for example nights are so bright in singapore that people can't adapt their vision for us today scientists are warning of the dangers of artificial light at night it did me. oh
1:44 am
and that's when i decided to make. this is the activists in india. reduce night but scientists now consider artificial light at night a form of pollution. during the entire development of. multicellular organisms. in animals and vertebrates in mammals primates and humans during death whole time there was this constant signal coming from the environment this is daytime this is night time this is the lunar month. in areas that experience strong light pollution that signal is effectively has been dramatically create. industry as a shadow over the past century has led to assertion artificial illumination so we see that most countries in the world are becoming brighter this is accelerated in
1:45 am
recent decades particularly in asian cities all violet dots on this map show new light sources installed in india between 20122016 it's just you know horrible and inaudible it's just so you would you know you can you can just see the aren't going to. come by and but. this is the view from the u.s. apartment in mumbai he lives in the 7th floor with his family and is literally in the spotlight lights from nearby streets and the stadium shine directly into their part meant light use your intellect program sometimes. and be more i used to get this job i don't like you know bright lights coming into my my my my bedroom and. my family because they could not. curtains and sleep masts failed to improve the situation so in 2018 he complained to the authorities claiming rights
1:46 am
to. the 1st they ignored him even those studies link i did fish light to eye injuries business. and maybe even the pressure some studies of chip workers have indicated that exposure to light at night could increase the risk of breast cancer but why there's a hormone. therapy rain makes called militant in which mammals is a signal of darkness. when we don't get that hormone produced when we don't produce that hormone because we are exposed to so much later apartment or as the shift worker. there in the whole working of this whole biological clock system becomes problematic. sleep digestion. and blood pressure are regulated by this biological clock and here 2 of the greatest light inventions of recent decades come into play ladies and screens they're very bright and very efficient and that comes at a price we may not be able to do anything about bright lights outside but the
1:47 am
lights we have at home are often literally in our hands. the problem is not only brightness but also color blue light from phone displace screens and l.e.d.s. is similar to daylight while lights in general can suppress the production of miller tone and blue light from screens and a disk can do so more strongly that's why experts at harvard recommend not using bright screens or any delights for 2 to 3 hours before going to bed or switching to dimmer and warmer shades of light. the light at night doesn't only threaten our health there is a tremendous change because increased brightness at night time is new. this is a bigger shirt from the lightness institute of freshwater ecology and inland fisheries in berlin she researches the impact of light on ecosystems live it's not unusual like half of the. corals birds and many other species of wildlife struggle when
1:48 am
it's light at night where used to be dark freshly hedged turtle street make their way into the sea but lights near the shore can mislead them as they head inland and die artificial light at night contributes to the decline in insect populations one study says the decline amounts to 100000000000 every summer in germany alone such light also contributes to a decrease in nocturnal pollination activity. case study found that where there's nighttime lighting trees but earlier and lose their lives later than elsewhere all these various of facts and different creatures and plans together affect the environment as a whole. so what can we do as individuals it might sound obvious but turn on lights only when and where you need it and then turn off again. that the motion sensor turns on and off or you use lamp shades for instance to block unwanted street
1:49 am
lights use lights with a warmer tone they can be just as efficient and lower the intensity when possible dimming is the magic word here. and entire cities even entire countries can adopt such solutions france for example has advanced i beams and in some places said times when lights in public spaces have to be dimmed or switched off as well as keeping the brightness of lamps and ecological essentially areas. imo create. this is as you get this you. and you know that needs to be rules and regulations. 'd and. protests from citizens like me. have signaled their country. that in the ministry of environment to implement last . hopes. for the people of. the way one day.
1:50 am
light pollution is just one of many environmental problems in urban areas. congestion is another serious issue especially in emerging economies. poor public transport systems often leave people with no alternative to travel by car where they end up spending hours stuck in traffic. take moscow as an example in 2020 the average car journey took 54 percent longer than it should have ingestion of more than 3 hours instead of 2 city officials have a plan to change. that p.r. is already top of the line this logo says this is an electric bus attention grabbing and visible to everyone there are $500.00 of them and more than any other city in
1:51 am
