Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas
There is a great hunt for farmland around the world, and the pursuit of the new green gold has become both a commercial and political issue. In this documentary, director Joakim Demmer shows a dark picture of this quest for lucrative land in Ethiopia. The government leases unused land to investors from other countries. But this leads to a lot of violence, oppression and evictions where the farmers in the country lose their ability to support themselves. We meet small farmers, prosecutors, environmentalists and investors in the documentary.
