Jared P Scott
DOC NYC, Reykjavik, Chicago, EarthxFilm, RiverRun, Raindance
A life-giving project aims to plant trees across Africa.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
The effects of climate change on Africa’s Sahel region are devastating: desertification, famine, conflict, and migration. Yet hope lies in the Great Green Wall, an ambitious reforestation project spanning the continent aimed at revitalizing ecosystems and restoring economies. In this story of resilience and self-determination executive produced by Fernando Meirelles, Malian musician/activist Inna Modja journeys from Senegal to Djibouti gathering stories and sharing songs with those on the front line of the fight to save their land and their ways of life.
