Cultural Practice & Belief / 35m / Feature / Documentary

Synopsis

In Saint Louis, a city built in the center of the Senegal River’s delta, it’s common to make an offering to the water genies when a child is born; a sign of the importance of water as a symbol to people whose daily lives are marked by rituals. Since the eighties, the infrastructures built to control the delta’s volume endanger its ecosystem, while the villages grow more and more desperate in the face of total indifference

Directed by Abdoul Aziz Cisse
