BIOPIC The Great Green Wall
A Buena Vista Social Club meets Years of Living Dangerously, renowned Malian singer Inna Modja takes us on a music-driven journey of hope, hardship, and perseverance across Africa’s ambitious Great Green Wall.
Part musical odyssey and cultural road-trip, part desertification and climate justice exploration, Inna sets out on a mission to assemble Africa’s most thrilling musicians and record a once-in-a-lifetime album that captures the spirit of the Wall – the budding 8,000km “belt of green” stretching from Senegal to Djibouti – providing food, jobs, and a future for millions of people.
Weaving together unforgettable personal stories of Sahelian adversity, determination and triumph, Inna leads us on a pilgrimage through the cities and savannahs with a band of artist-activists composing an indelibly eclectic soundtrack for a continent at a crossroads.
Once complete, the Great Green Wall will be the largest living structure on earth, three times the size of the Great Barrier Reef, and a new wonder of the world.
This is the resilience story of our time, a massive social action project, and a symbol of hope in the resounding African Dream.
WHY IS AFRICA BUILDING A Great Wall ?
Eleven countries are planting a wall of trees from east to west across Africa, just under the southern edge of the Sahara desert. The goal is to fight the effects of climate change by reversing desertification.
