It’s a far-reaching, pan-African project, brought to our screens by musician, actress and activist Inna Modja. The Malian singer has lent her talents to the documentary “The Great Green Wall”; she spoke to FRANCE 24 about her participation in the film and the environmental initiative it focuses on.

Also, we say farewell to one-of-a-kind artist Christo and his sweeping, grandiose installations following his death at 84. Working with his late wife Jeanne-Claude, he was best known for wrapping up the Reichstag and the Pont Neuf in metres of fabric.

And major players from the music industry press pause as they stage a “Black Out” against racism. Companies like Warner, Sony and Def Jam are halting business for one day in solidarity with protests all over the United States which have been calling for an end to institutionalised racism and police brutality. This comes after the death of George Floyd, a black man killed in police custody.
