Taking Root: The Vision Of Wangari Maathai


(Taking Root: The Vision Of Wangari Maathai) Director: Lisa Meton, Alan Dater, USA, 2008, English / Czech subtitles, 58 min

The story of Wangari Maathai, the first African winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, has many dimensions. The initial intention of combating soil erosion by planting trees evolved into a political movement fighting not only environmental degradation but also poverty and political oppression of the authoritarian regime of Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi.

The film documents the life path of Wangari Maathai, who through both natural and political adversity in the country changed the direction of the development of Kenyan society. The key to her success was a “mere” idea of planting trees and indomitable effort.

The screening is in partnership with the association Humanitas Afrika.
