Amazing Grace (2013)

Partnership Overview: We made this short film while filming Trees For Zambia in Livingstone. It tells the story of charcoal burner turned tree planter named Lloyd Manyina. The positive response to the film has been a validation of everything that Makhulu believes in. As a result of the international awards that the film has won, we have been able to travel to Turkey and the United States to spread Lloyd’s timely message of ‘giving back to nature’.

Memorable Moment: Apart from meeting Lloyd himself, it has to be winning Makhulu’s first major award. We were thrilled to be named Best African Film at the UN Forest Film Awards in 2013. It was a huge unexpected honour for us.
