The French Embassy is delighted to announce The Green Night of Ideas 2021 in Ireland, a series of digital screenings followed by debates on climate change taking place in January and February 2021.

The Great Green Wall
A new documentary by Jared P. Scott
Presented in association with the Irish Film Institute

The film director 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 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.

28 January 2021, 6.30pm – followed by a live discussion on climate change with Irish and international speakers
Available until 31 January to viewers in Ireland only
