Nicholas Winer


I worked in Africa for 20 years on development, humanitarian relief and conservation projects. Met a whole lot of life from the grimmest to the inspirational, and from Bob Geldof and his Hollywood look a likes to a host of conscience stricken politicians (yes, some of them claimed to have consciences). I then worked as a consultant in South America and Africa and was also Martin Campbell's adviser on the Angelina Jolie film Beyond Borders, which was fun. But there's no hierarchy more rigid than a film set run by a big studio.

As the last playground of the Cold War, the Horn of Africa in the 1980s was a heady mix of idealism, war and political terror. Mark, a young aid worker in the tragic famine that decimated Ethiopia, is caught between his idealism, the ruthless oppression of Mengistu’s Stalinesque regime and the cynical games being played by the British and American Embassies.
