Africa Rising (2009)

Only available in Canada, United States

The scandal of Ethiopia is that, like much of Africa, it’s a potentially rich country with enormous resources. What has never been recognized, until now, is that the solution to its dilemma lies in the hands of its own people. Shot in high definition, Africa Rising goes right inside the extraordinary story of how a large rural area of Ethiopia is taking itself out of poverty. With a cast of thousands, this film will open the eyes to the world of a new dawn – Africans solving Africa’s needs themselves.

This film speaks directly to what slavery, colonization and dependency has done to Africa and it's people. Self Help in Africa is giving more than food, schools, and business's renewing a land of King and Queens (when Europe was in it's infancy) it's pride back. Thank you Gaiam!
