1. Com um bom porto de mar, Saint-Louis ou a Veneza da África foi a primeira cidade com estruturas defensivas da costa africana e um importante centro de comércio de ouro, goma arábica, marfim e escravos. Perdeu a sua importância no momento da independência do Senegal, a favor da nova capital Dakar. Hoje a principal actividade económica da cidade é a pesca, com mais de 4.000 pescadores. Desde 2000, está inscrita na lista de Património Mundial da UNESCO.

    With a good seaport, Saint-Louis, also known as the Venice of Africa, was the first city on the African coast that possessed defensive structures; it was an important trading centre for gold, Arabic gum, ivory and slaves. It lost its importance in favour of the new capital Dakar, when Senegal achieved its independence. Today, the city’s main activity is fishing, with more than 4,000 fishermen. It has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.

  5. La vita di Altinè, donna del Sahel, è fatta di piccoli gesti quotidiani e dell’antica arte della sopravvivenza in un ambiente arido e ostile.
    Altinè è una donna di etnia Peul che vive in un piccolo villaggio nel deserto del Ferlo, nel Nord del Senegal. Ogni giorno impega circa tre ore per andare a prendere l’acqua al pozzo, raccoglie la legna, prepara il cibo per l’intera famiglia e accudisce i bambini. Altinè è la depositaria di valori, cultura e conoscenza dell’adattamento al difficile ambiente del Sahel. Il documentario ritrae la sua vita quotidiana durante la stagione secca, seguendo il suo naturale senso del tempo.
