Sustainability Film Series: Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas

Wednesday | April 04, 2018 , 6:00 pm - 8:20 pm

Free

Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas is a documentary film that explores the issue of land grabbing through foreign land investments and exposes their impacts on local farmer’s lives in Ethiopia. The film showcases perspectives of investors, bureaucrats, journalists, environmentalists and especially the small farmers who have been forcibly evicted from their ancestral land and have lost their livelihoods. In the commercial rush for farmland, Ethiopia is the “new green gold”, but at what cost?
