We had the World Premiere of THE GREAT GREEN WALL at Giornate degli Autori, Venice Film Festival on Sat 31st Aug 2019.

Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles (Academy Award and Golden Globe 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, Modja follows the burgeoning Great Green Wall through Africa’s Sahel region — one of the most vulnerable places on earth (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: increased desertification, drought, resource scarcity, radicalization, conflict and migration.

Watch the trailer here.

We’re delighted to be supporting the impact campaign for THE GREAT GREEN WALL, in partnership with the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification and MAKE Waves Media.

The next presentation will take place as part of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York on the 22nd September. Also be on the look out for a special partnership with Global Citizen.
