Women of the Sand

"Women of the Sand" is a documentary about nomad Islamic women in the Sahara desert. Filmed in Mauritania, it follows the day-to-day activities of women, documenting their work, family and community life, expectations and emotions. Filmed in cinema-verite style, with no narration, the non-intrusive camera allows the women to tell their own stories in a candid and intimate way. The stunning photography captures the immensity of the desert and the giant sand dunes which have already covered ninety per cent of the country and are threatening the very existence of the nomadic lifestyle. A tale of women’ resilience and a poignant portrait of a vanishing way of life.
