A thousand suns - trailer

This is well worth a look.

"Shot in Ethiopia, New York and Kenya, the film explores two interrelated threats to the Gamo Highlands: 1) the evangelistic aspirations of the protestant church that are destroying the Gamos indigenous spirituality and governance systems; and 2) the efforts of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), a Western aid organization which is spending hundreds of millions of dollars bringing chemical pesticides, fertilizers and‚ improved seeds to the continent."

A Thousand Suns (trailer) from (r)evolutiontheory on Vimeo.

My favorite line from the promo is when they look at the city and say "I can't see any land or fields... these people just live on concrete surfaces."

Bloody hell - we really do don't we.
