Trailer for the documentary The Man Who Stopped the Desert.

From a harsh, uncompromising land comes a story of hope...

Yacouba Sawadogo, a peasant farmer from Africa has succeeded where international agencies failed. Over the last twenty years he has successfully battled against nature, and man, to become a pioneer in the fight against desertification.

But Yacouba's struggle is not simply an agricultural story, it is pure drama. It is about one man's conviction that now has the potential to benefit many thousands living in the Sahel region of Africa.

"Yacouba's story is both incredibly timely and important given the current crisis in many parts of the world with desertification. It is also rare to find a conservation story with such an upbeat and inspirational ending".

The Man Who Stopped the Desert is a beautifully filmed, emotional roller coaster that will leave you moved and inspired.
