ABOVE WATER

Niger/Belgien/Frankreich 2021 – Director: Aïssa Maïga – Admission: 7,00 euros, red. 5,00 euros

12-year-old Houlaye lives in the village of Tatiste in Azawagh in the north-west of Niger - a once fertile but now desert region due to climate change. In the dry season, the villagers walk several kilometres a day to collect water from wells that have also fallen victim to climate change and are increasingly drying up. The people in Tatiste literally walk on water, because there is a spring 200 metres below the earth's surface. Will Houlaye's aunt Souri succeed in convincing an NGO to build a well that will fundamentally change the lives of the people of this remote place? (African Film Days Munich)
