The Weather Gods

“Climate change is destroying Africa. In the harshest of ironies, the cradle of mankind could well become its grave,” says Dianne McAlpine Special Projects Coordinator for Greenpeace Africa.

Dependent upon rain fed farming, the continent is facing a future of rampant food insecurity in an ever hotter and drier continent.

The documentary is a joint venture between Greenpeace Africa and UHURU Productions, directed by one of South Africa's leading film makers, Rehad Desai.

Each case study is exemplified by individuals who explain in their own words the changes they are facing.

Greenpeace shows the true face of the problem in "The Weather Gods", a hard-hitting documentary that tells the story of the people in the front line of climate change; rural communities in Mali and Kenya and South Africa.
