Development / 52m / Feature / Documentary
When Séda & Tiyéda Bawiena return to Baga, their native village in Togo, they find it on the brink of ruin, devastated by decades of sustained exodus, bleak economic prospects and an increasingly infertile land. Armed with their unshakable faith in the ways of their ancestral land, they found the International Centre for Agro-Pastoral Development (CIDAP) that revolutionises life in their community. The Dancing Forest seeks out the group of women who supported Séda from its beginnings 25 years ago, and details their unlikely triumph. Disseminating new methods of sustainable agriculture anchored on the ways of their forefathers, they resurrected an entire village.
