A six-month expedition in West Africa uncovers the daily life of the Wodaabe, nomadic herders of Niger, during the season of the drought and the rainy season and through the rituals that accompany them. Awarded at Locarno in 1955 for excellence in ethnographic investigation, Henry Brandt’s documentary still astonishes today for the fascinating aesthetic scope of his research.
