Award-winning director Mark Dodd has recently released the trailer for his next documentary, Ethiopia Rising: from Red Terror to Green Revolution. Set in the stunning landscape of Northern Ethiopia, and during a time of great conflict, Ethiopia Rising will tell the incredible story of how people in this region transformed thousands of hectares of degraded land into vast hillside forests and fertile valleys.


Mark Dodd is the author of the widely acclaimed “The Man Who Stopped the Desert“, a documentary feature film that tells the story of Yacouba Sawadogo, a farmer from Burkina Faso who has restored drought-damaged soil using traditional farming techniques.
