Der erste Teil unserer Expedition führt uns von der Hauptstadt Niamey zu den Woodabe, ihrer Schule für Nomadenkinder in Abulbal – und den Balztänzen des Guérewol-Festivals.

Der zweite Teil führt uns nach Agadez, dem Tor zur Wüste, durch das Aïr-Gebirge und die Wüste Ténéré – und schließlich zum Tuareg-Treffen nach Iférouane.   Der Niger: das ist pures Afrika.

Expedition Niger

101 Min. | 4K | 16:9 | English | German

It is one of the most unknown and poorest countries in the world, and yet full of wealth: Niger.   Rich because of the smiles of its people, the vastness of its deserts and the mysticism of its peoples.          

The film accompanies one of the rare expeditions through Niger.   Protected from raids and kidnappings by a military convoy, we encounter two of the last nomadic tribes: the Woodabe and the Tuareg.

The first part of our expedition takes us from the capital Niamey to the Woodabe tribe, their school for nomadic children in Abulbal and the courtship dances of the Guérewol          

The second part takes us to Agadez - the gateway to the desert - through the Aïr Mountains and the Ténéré desert, and finally to the Tuareg festival in Iférouane.   Niger: The Real Africa.
