Directed and written by Bob Coen and Eric Nadler
Two years after the French military intervened in Mali to battle jihadist rebels, the Sahel remains a hotbed of instability.
This film examines the complex geo-politics of the region and the role of the United States newest military command – AFRICOM. Is the conflict masking a larger struggle between the world’s powers for control of valuable resources under the desert sands?
