What recent protests in the Democratic Republic of the Congo tell us about the state of Internet access in the country
"On May 17, netizens in the DRC were shocked to discover that prices for fixed and mobile internet packages had increased dramatically overnight, without warning. These price increases ranged from 35 to 500 percent. ...

"The price surge came at a time when access to information, especially on mobile devices, couldn’t have been more important. Just weeks before, protests broke out around the country after the DRC’s highest court ruled that current president Joseph Kabila could remain in power if elections are not held as scheduled in November."

The Fallen of World War II - Data-driven documentary about war & peace
The Fallen of World War II is an interactive documentary that examines the human cost of the second World War and the decline in battle deaths in the years since the war. The 15-minute data visualization uses cinematic storytelling techniques to provide viewers with a fresh and dramatic perspective of a pivotal moment in history.

The film follows a linear narration, but it allows viewers to pause during key moments to interact with the charts and dig deeper into the numbers.
