Just Food: Coping with the Crisis in Nigeria

June 5, 2018

The immersive documentary Just Food: Coping with the Crisis, from Al Jazeera's immersive studio Contrast VR, premiered on June 5th, shedding light on the food insecurity crisis in northeast Nigeria. The film explores the food insecurity crisis in Borno State, northeastern Nigeria, focusing on how the Boko Haram conflict in northeastern Nigeria has threatened the ability of local farmers to grow crops, even in the areas that have been liberated. Over the past decade, the Boko Haram insurgency has displaced over 1.8 million Nigerians in predominantly agricultural northeast Nigeria, stalling food production, hiking up prices, and restricting safe market access to help create one of the world’s worst food crises. The film features Habiba, a participant in Action Against Hunger's food assistance program in Maiduguri in Borno State and relates how she benefited from the organization's humanitarian interventions.
