Plateau on the Move
The film derives its messages from the EU-GIZ project “Deepening Economic Development for Peace and Stability in Plateau State, Nigeria”. For centuries this region in northern Nigeria is troubled by a conflict between muslim herdsmen and mostly christian farmers. High unemployment and a lack of perspectives for the young population further increase problems.
The film uses the methods of a documentary to capture the topic. It throws a second look at the region and shows people working towards solutions, economic progress and peace in Plateau State.
