Singer Inna Modja travels across the edge of the Sahel region of Africa, where the plan is to build a green wall of trees and vegetation to fight climate change and drought.

Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles (Academy Award-Nominated Director of City of God) 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: increasing desertification, drought, resource scarcity, radicalization, conflict and migration.
