Probably no other country in the world has already been affected by climate change as much as Bangladesh: regular floods, loss of land and climate refugees who fall back from self-employed small-scale farming to the level of day labourers. This film shows all this, but it also shows the burgeoning hope in the country through education, micro-credit and the new middle class that is emerging as a result. Destructive transformation and signs of how change can happen - this is the kind of film our Green Horizons series was made for! With this documentary, journalists Vincent Prado and Alice Guilhamon present an impressively researched debut - methodically clean, up close and personal.
