This documentary of 17 minutes has been realized in Niger, in the heart of the Sahel, in October 2010.
“Waynaabe” shows the life of nomadic Wodaabe livestock keepers through the eyes of the young Mother Mooro, whose child Jumaare survived malnutrition. Her niece Mariama takes us to the worso, the annual event of their clan in Akadaney. This film marks the importance of cattle and the serious hazards related to drought and nutrition issues. For Wodaabe people, livestock represents wealth and a way out of poverty.
