Overview

WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE? is a controversial documentary about why after 50 years of Western involvement, billions of dollars in foreign assistance and countless promises, Africa is still so poor. The film tells the story of 3 brothers and a cousin who travel across Africa in an attempt to understand one of the great problems of our time, the failure to end poverty in Africa. Shot on location in 12 countries, WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE? transports you into the shocking and heart wrenching world of African poverty and the multi billion dollar aid and development industry dedicated to fighting it.
