Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas

April 1, 2017

Around the globe, there is a massive commercial rush for farmland – the new green gold. One of the most profitable new spots for farming is Ethiopia. Hoping for export revenues, the Ethiopian government leases millions of hectares of allegedly unused land to foreign investors. But the dream of prosperity has a dark side – the most massive forced evictions in modern history, lost livelihoods of small farmers, harsh repression and a vicious spiral of violence. Contributing to this disaster are the EU, the World Bank and DFID, providing billions of dollars in development money.

DEAD DONKEYS FEAR NO HYENAS investigates these foreign land-investments and exposes their impact on people’s lives. In the pursuit of truth, we meet investors, development bureaucrats, persecuted journalists, struggling environmentalists and evicted farmers deprived of their land.

We are incredibly grateful for all of the support we’ve received so far and thank all of you for donating and sharing. We’ve still got a long way to go before we reach 25,000 dollars, so please continue reaching out to your networks and asking them to consider even a small donation. Achieving our Kickstarter goal is critical for helping us get this film out globally, so that we can bring awareness to the devastating impact of land grabbing, both in Ethiopia and around the world.

Our best regards,
Joakim, Margarete, Fredrik, Glynnis and Kerstin
