The Great Green Wall

The Wall To Unite

A "wall" of 8,000 kilometres in length, which runs through eleven African states, is to be built as a protective barrier against drought, the spread of the desert and the consequences of climate change. Filmmaker Jared P. Scott travels with the main character Inna Modja along this wall and shows that this ambitious project does not divide but rather connects.
