Let's develop them!
Let's deveop them!
In recent years, no other country on earth has received as many billions of dollars in development aid as Ethiopia.
With over one hundred million inhabitants, the country in the Horn of Africa is considered a model country when it comes to successful development policy. And yet, even after 30 years of development aid, Ethiopia is still one of the poorest countries in the world. Those who manage to, flee from hunger crises, political unrest and a future without prospects. This film shows how Europe is trying to combat the causes of flight and prevent migration with state-funded development aid. But it also shows how this money flows to authoritarian governments and how today's development aid in African countries often has exactly the opposite effect, it forces people to flee.
