"Niger is dying, and the world is merely watching" This dramatic message was heard all over the world in July 2005. News media all over the world reported the famine in the worlds poorest country. Why would anyone doubt it when the UN, the BBC and the big relief organisations reported of a famine in Niger, and that millions needed immediate relief? But what if this wasnt a famine? What if it was not free food that was the right medicine for the crisis in Niger? "The Famine Scam" is a controversial documentary which has won several awards, and was awarded third prize in the Monte Carlo TV festival in June 2008.
