The latest documentary from award-winning director Mark Dodd.
Ethiopia Rising is the story of the phenomenal environmental transformation of a nation told through the experience of one man, Aba Hawi, who mobilises an entire community to regenerate a region in northern Ethiopia. They face drought, famine and civil war in a monumental struggle to restore the fertility of their land and ensure their future.
“An unmissable film that shows that changes are down to us - Dodd is one of a new breed of film makers, part activist, part story capturer, totally committed to things not just remaining as they are. See this film!“
Tony Rollinson, Permaculture magazine
