Screening – Africa Rising

Screening June 25, 2010 7:00 PM

In a controversial and colourful one-hour documentary, the failure of Western policies towards Africa is highlighted: Is it time to reconsider the role of Western aid workers on the continent?

It’s a totally different approach to programming on Africa, giving viewers something to smile about in tough times, particularly the ending which raises spirits to a new high. Africans solving Africa’s problems themselves.

Shot on a grand scale across great swathes of land, this film records a success story in one of the most deprived regions of the world. The scandal of Ethiopia is that, like much of Africa, it’s a potentially rich country with enormous resources: what has never been recognised, until now, is that the solution to its dilemma lies in the hands of its own people.
