Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles (Academy Award-Nominated Director of City of God & The Constant Gardener) and Malian musician/activist Inna Modja take us on an epic journey along Africa's Great Green Wall — an ambitious vision to grow an 8,000km 'wall’ of trees stretching across the entire width of the continent to restore land and provide a future for millions of people.

 

Traversing Senegal, Mali, Nigeria, Niger and Ethiopia, Inna Modja follows the burgeoning Great Green Wall through Africa’s Sahel region — one of the most vulnerable places on earth where temperatures are rising 1.5 times faster than the global average — laying bare the acute consequences of severe land degradation and accelerating climate change the Wall aims to counteract: increasing desertification, drought, resource scarcity, food insecurity, radicalization, conflict, and forced migration.
