Africa Rising (Foreign Aid)
Remember Band Aid, Live Aid and the developed countries’ determination to ‘Feed The World’? We failed – there are more Africans living in extreme poverty today than ever before. Shot in high definition, Africa Rising goes right inside the extraordinary story of how a large rural area of Ethiopia is taking itself out of poverty. With a cast of thousands, our film will open the eyes of the world to a new dawn of Africans solving Africa’s needs themselves.
In a controversial, colourful and frequently uplifting one-hour documentary, we highlight the failure of Western policies towards Africa, asking whether it’s time to reconsider the role of Western aid workers on the continent.
