DROWNING IN SANDS

Programmer's note:

It drops you right in, into the crisis, and into the sand. The cinematography is stunning. In Sudan, sand is the ultimate destroyer, leaving behind a wasteland after a storm. Nothing can grow and no-one can live. Two Sudanese engineers develop drones for farming which is under threat of desertification. These are men of invention, persevering past terrorist sanctions, and executing agricultural robotics. 

Synopsis:

Two Sudanese inventors determined to stop the desert from swallowing up their country. Despite international sanctions and a failing economy, they succeed in building Sudan’s first robot farmer and enter it into a national TV competition.
