About the Project

A bold and visually epic documentary feature following the emergence of a new world wonder changing lives on the African continent. The Great Green Wall tells the incredible story of one of the planet's most timely and ambitious endeavors taking route on the edge of the Sahara desert. A dream to grow a wall of trees and plants across the entire width of Africa, and stop the ravages of climate change firmly in its tracks. By the time it’s completed in 2030, the Great Green Wall will be the largest living structure on the planet – three times the length of the Great Barrier Reef.

Working with acclaimed Oscar-nominated film-maker Fernando Meirelles, the film will tell the story of this incredible initiative through the eyes of renowned Malian singer and activist Inna Modja. Taking the audience on a visually and musically stunning journey across the continent, Inna will explore nations devastated by war and famine, to tell the story of a burgeoning pan-African movement bringing hope to millions of people.
