From Nomads of the sun by Henry Brandt, 1954, 16 mm col., optical sound, 44 ’, French (1987 restored version).
Filmed in 1953 in Peul Wodaabe of Niger, this film is definitely the first document that presents the life of these nomadic herders zebu, their seasonal movements and their famous holiday reunion in the rainy season. Wodaabe suffered during successive droughts of the last twenty years and the gradual culture change, which is documented in this unique testimony.
