Eritrea: A Nation in Isolation

Published on 26 Oct 2012

We get exclusive access to the most isolated country in Africa, which has been victorious in recent wars against not one but two superpowers. We visit the key historical sites of a nation with a 1,200 km Red Sea coastline across from Yemen and Saudi Arabia. We travel and talk to stakeholders about massive infrastructural investment in a nation, currently the subject of UN Sanctions. Eritrea has defied Western neoliberal economic, political and cultural agendas and our cameras record the self-sufficiency experiment that has made Eritrea one of the fastest — if not the fastest — growing economy on the planet.
We examine the complex issues that are at stake for Eritrea in its battle against U.S. hegemony — from its diverse religious heritage, the rebuilding of its health, education and urban/rural infrastructure to its cautious implementation of foreign investment strategy.
