Gaarú is a film about the inspirational people reweaving the connections between culture and Nature across Africa.
The film follows African grassroots leaders who are working to protect and restore Africa’s lands, waters, forests, and the ecological knowledge of her peoples.
Hailing from across the continent, these leaders are undergoing a transformational, UN-recognised training process, facilitated by The Gaia Foundation.
They are reconnecting with their roots and working with African communities to practically protect and revive ecosystems; restore customary laws that conserve Nature; connect elders and youth; revive resilient, locally-adapted indigenous seed varieties, and more.
Gaarú explores the training process, introduces Africa’s new, grassroots green leaders and explores the meaning of Earth Jurisprudence in Africa.
Film produced by Ben Gray for The Gaia Foundation.
Edited by Marco Jackson.
Narrated by Sarah Hillman.
