Ministry of Foreign Affairs:
Earth at Stake

20E: Earth at Stake

In our Earth at Stake program we, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, present films and follow-up discussions about the struggle for a sustainable world.

On Sunday 22 March, three small documentaries can be seen in the Kleine Zaal of Theater aan het Spui from 10.00hr to 17.00hr in combination with an introduction or a follow-up discussion.

10.00 - 12.00: The Last Ice
Visually stunning portrait of two young Inuit, fighting for the survival of their culture. The melting ice of the Arctic rapidly diminishes their hunting grounds. At the same time, global business interests are preparing a Wild West of economic exploitation.

12.30 - 14.50: No Gold for Kalsaka
When the government of Burkina Faso passes a law that permits gold to be extracted from the small village of Kalsaka, the villagers are flooded with promises. Hopes rise sky-high, but nothing is captured in contracts. Now, the community fights for compensation, for justice, and for its dignity.

15.00 - 17.00: The Great Green Wall
Uplifting documentary about one of the world’s most ambitious projects against climate change: the Great Green Wall of trees which spans the entire African continent. Malian musician Inna Modja takes us along this beautiful structure, on an epic journey through countries such as Senegal, Mali, Nigeria and Ethiopia.
