In this multi-award-winning documentary, Volker Schlöndorff follows Tony Rinaudo to different African countries to witness the effect FMNR has had on fighting desertification, and repeatedly encounters issues that also concern us in Europe: migration, climate change, and gender justice. To complement his view, he invited African filmmakers to collaborate with him and share their experience of rural life and local challenges.
The Forest Maker shows ordinary people doing extraordinary things and carries a strong message of community, self-empowerment and, above all, hope.
