Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyeanas
Co-producer: WG Film (SE)
Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyeanas is a story of greed, exploitation and altruism in one of the most beautiful landscapes on earth.
A new set of customers are rubbing elbows with the aid workers at the Sheraton Garden Bar in Addis, Ethopia: the land speculators. The investors’ PR brochures promise a win-win situation where both Africans and investors profit from the development of farmland.
But the investigations of Ethiopian environmental journalist Ermias uncovers a darker reality: the price of securing Western pensions is displaced villagers, violence, fear and a bulldozed national park. Fearing for his life, Ermias is forced to flee the country and find refuge in the US. But his heart has never left Ethopia, and we follows his return.
