a filmmaker is challenging the culture of silence around 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. the british study of the l.t. miti community found that 68 percent of gay bi and trans people 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 women. a filmmaker in egypt. to

change the narrative around the issue. tara she heard his latest documentary has touched a nerve in egypt. 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 foot arusha harter taking on this issue meant creating a powerful protagonist and then i started to think you know what if i was super hero then i really wanted to be very but it happened for me so i interpret it in a film. the protagonist is a 14 year old christian girl with a keen sense of justice the budding heroine ponders what a good disguise could be and finds the answer on the street.
7:33 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 relations. thankfully i never experienced 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. to heroines message in the. above all she has
7:34 am
a criticizes the fact that sexual attacks are 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's there's no justification for 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 of course he is they say never before have the clergy come out so firmly on the matter. she let her meets with the heroine of his short film yes mina the director wants to broach the
7:35 am
subject of sexual assault in a feature length film just mina is passionate about the project because it affects her directly. when she how to directed yes mina in the short film the actress was just 14 years old i mean obviously it was a thing to me 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 the whole situation and kind of gave me the feminism some as a take. heart as path 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 in 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
7:36 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 happening 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 to me to 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 such 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
7:37 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 light terrace she says the subject of sexual harassment is one of the most important in egypt because it's too often downplayed when it's just like a word and no one really talks about it because they say you know it wasn't a big deal just forget about it but these little things add up and they the matter and the affect a woman's life and those who are her us life. so i really think that we should enforce laws to. stop those.

7:41 am
there's so many things i'm afraid oh. yeah. cause. being afraid of cops and so i think i have a better. night sky is flooded with lives these days fishies barely ever experience the true cover of darkness we take constant illumination for granted. early pioneers of artificial life including sir humphrey davy. james prescott jewel and most famously thomas edison revolutionized our lives by making light bulbs readily available. but the effect of all this artificial life can have
7:42 am
a damaging effect on both the environment and our health. i have never ever seen anything like this obviously where the great reluctance the magnitude 6.6 earthquake. in 1904 los angeles was hit by a strong earthquake it cost chaos on the streets and the black ops busy as you look out your window is probably fishguard frightening the blackout many people called observatories and even 911 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
7:43 am
a real revolution night suddenly became day. it's great with electric light we can travel work. go out on a party what ever the time of. the pioneers might not have expected then mention 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 light into the night is one of the most dramatic changes that we made to the biosphere. this is because of what he researches artificial light emissions from cities and their impact today more than 80 percent of the world's population no longer can experience dark skies. for example nights are so bright in singapore that people can't adapt their vision for darkness today scientists are warning of the dangers
7:44 am
of artificial light at night it did me. oh i can that's when i decided to. activists in india. we do sniper scientists now consider artificial light at night a form of pollution. during the entire development of. multicellular organisms. in edibles that vertebrates mammals primates and humans during death whole 'd 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 have experienced strong light pollution that signal is effectively has been dramatically create. industrialisation over the past century has led to assertion artificial illumination so we see that most countries in the world are
7:45 am
becoming brighter this is accelerated in 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 orrible and inaudible it's just so you would you know you could you can just see the are in under. a minute with a lot of absolution 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 the lights from nearby streets and the stadium shine directly into their apartment light use people to let program work 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 it really impacted me because i could not eat. and sleep masts fail to improve the situation so in 2018 he complained to the authorities claiming rights
7:46 am
to. the 1st they ignored him even those studies link artificial light to eye injuries sleeplessness. and maybe even depression some studies of chip workers have indicated that exposure to light at night could increase the risk of breast cancer why there is a hormone. that are brain makes called melatonin which in 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 elegies and screens they are 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
7:47 am
lights we have at home are often literally in our hands. the problem is not only brightness but also color. blue light from fonda space screens and any bees 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 lights for 2 to 3 hours before going to bed or switching to a 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 bill from the life and it's 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
7:48 am
it's light at night where used to be dark freshly hedged turtle struck make their way into the sea but lights near the shore can mislead them they had inland and die artificial light at night contributes to the decline in insect populations one study says the decline amounts 200000000000 every summer in germany alone such light also contributes to a decrease in nocturnal pollination activity a u.k. study found that where there's nighttime lighting trees but earlier and who still use later that 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 that might sound obvious but turn on lights only when and where you need it and then turn off again. that emotion sensor turning on and off or you use lamp shades for instance to block unwanted street
7:49 am
lights use lights with a warmer tone they can be just as efficient and lower the intensity when possible dimming. the magic words here. entire cities even entire countries can adopt such solutions france for example has banned sky beams and in some places says times when lights in public spaces have to be dimmed or switched off as well as keeping the brightness of land and ecological the sensitive areas. imo created by people don't realize this is how she gets if you. and you know it needs that needs to be. regulation. and. protests from citizens like. the indian ministry of environment to implement laws. for the people of. the way one day.
7:50 am
light pollution is just one of many environmental problems in urban areas congestion is another serious issue especially in emerging economies. public transport systems often leave people with no alternative energy travel by car maybe end up spending hours stuck in traffic. take moscow as an example 2020 after each car journey took 54 percent longer than it should ingestion 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

europe. the plan is. to go electric by 2030. appears to have gone down well with the passengers. supply drive so smoothly that you can hardly feel anything it's so cold. i think electric buses are a great concept. recharging only takes a few minutes that's enough to power the buses on $36.00 routes. passengers can charge their cell phones on u.s.b. ports. project director. knows the advantages of the new buses the people you're making are transforming most going to most of ecological public transport this is a new generation of electric buses there is fast dynamic and maneuverable as normal buses but they're also ecologically clean and don't make any noise. some residents
7:52 am
are mourning the old trolley buses from which only the contact lines remain eventually they'll go to. bus driver yevgeny mahoning used to drive a trolley bus to him the new electric buses are a big improvement. my crew from our boys in the past we always had to climb on the roof of the bus and switch out the contact to the connects to the current collector. during rain frost and snow it was especially irritating with these buses it's not necessary up to the charging station recharge the battery and off you go but what does this power come from. have a unified energy system and all of the power plants and their electricity to it these can be atomic or wind powered power plants unfortunately we still don't know where the specific you know what i was come from and we don't give it much thought either. travis also electric power

and is expanding rapidly new stations are popping up at breakneck speed some of them in areas the tonto already built up. the transit system follows the demand many russians from poorer regions are moving to moscow which is a rich metropolis with millions of residents the metro is the fastest way to get from a to b. . this is happening at record speed. in 10 years the metro system has almost doubled in size. during this period. the city has opened $145.00 new metro and train stations and almost $44.00 more a planned by 2024 plus a 3rd metro bring is being built. the new stations are state of the art and post individual designs that even have little luxuries including a virtual library stocked with text by russian authors that can be accessed by cell phone. but the expansion of moscow's
7:54 am
metro system has also generated criticism. this protest is in opposition to the expansion of the metro system people here are sad to see the green space overtaken by a metro line they believe the restructuring of moscow by its current mess is the wrong way to go they feel the modern moscow including the new metro lines isn't that this view is shared by local politician yes mean fuck me. lost what moscow isn't getting better all more beautiful the city is destroying itself and losing its uniqueness. yasmeen and other opponents say there's no reason for a station where because the district already has enough public transit. beyond that they say the metro line is much too shallow and threatens the foundations of old buildings. oh. we have is it worth as much if asked that means
7:55 am
without inspections or expert reports we've discovered that expert reports are bought and sold their findings aren't reliable they're just a formality they reports without a real foundation. in european democracies the speed with which moscow's metro was built would be unimaginable. russia but we're stuck with russia's and altera tarion regime many decisions can simply be carried out from above without considering public opinion that of course in. things move out more quickly with the state decides in the state does it but it often leads to mistakes when we don't ask the public what they think when they don't understand why they protest the deal. many moscow residents are welcoming the new transit possibilities including call sharing moscow has the biggest car sharing feat in europe 6 companies and 26000 cars. with these new sustainable transit
