TFF: Great Green Wall

Screening with SOLAR TUK TUK short film with introduction from Julian Oshea, Comedian, Social Innovator, and Solar Tuk Tuk adventurer.

Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles (Academy Award-Nominated Director of City of God & The Constant Gardener) 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.

Modja follows the burgeoning Great Green Wall through Africa’s Sahel region — one of the most vulnerable places on earth where temperatures are rising 1.5 times faster than the global average. Here we see the acute consequences of severe land degradation and accelerating climate change that the Wall aims to counteract: increasing desertification, drought, resource scarcity, radicalisation, conflict and migration.

Although the film does the groundwork for a climate change cautionary tale, The Great Green Wall provides a refreshing story of resilience, optimism and collective action. If completed,
the Wall will be the largest living structure on earth, three times the size of the Great Barrier Reef — a new world wonder.

Frontline characters give voice to a continent at a crossroads — stories Modja echoes on a sublime album. This journey of hope, hardship and perseverance reveals our shared human condition, reflecting a deeper moral and existential question we all must confront: “Will we take action before it's too late?”
