Executive Producer FERNANDO MEIRELLES (Academy Award and Golden Globe Nominated Director of City of God and the Constant Gardener) & Malian Musician and 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 accelerating climate change the Wall aims to counteract: drought, resource scarcity, radicalization, conflict and migration.

As Modja passionately pursues an African Dream for a generation seeking to control their own destiny, she reminds us of the enormity of the task ahead and that time is not on our side. The resulting journey of hope, hardship and perseverance reveals our shared human condition, reflecting a deeper moral and existential question we all must confront: “Will we take action before it’s too late?”
