Cowherders from Switzerland and Mali meet
7 January 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

In the movie, cow-farmers from Sahel meet with Switzerland cow-farmers in Switzerland and the other way round. Not only become differing concepts, technologies and option visible, but also a history of development philosophies. The documentary is not only beautifully made. It is also heart-touching and eyeopening in many ways. Especially if you are interested in development work, the movie lays open different lines of thought, wholly different concepts of the world. But it is also a reminder of the harsh conditions that everyday people in the dry Sahel region have to cope with. You will laugh, you will wonder, and you might be touched and start thinking. I've seen the film at the FESPACO, an African diaspora film festival which takes place every two years in Ouagadougou, capital of Burkina Faso. Amazing atmosphere.
