Der Film „SÜSSES GIFT will zum 50. Jahrestag der Unabhängigkeit Wirkungen der Entwicklungshilfe aus der Sicht der Afrikaner überprüfen 500 billion US dollars in a half-century - and no end to the aid is in sight. Prominent "do-gooders" of the entertainment industry such as Bono, Bob Geldorf, Angelina Jolie and Madonna, pressure the politicians to pump more development aid into Africa.
An ever-increasing number of African economic experts and sociologists have begun to criticise this flood of aid.
Our documentary film project follows the voices of protest that are being raised in Africa. Working in cooperation with scholars and journalists from West and East Africa, we will attempt to present the problems of development aid from an "African" perspective.
