Finding a diamond in the sand
DW’s Global Ideas has always been good at going to some of the most exotic places on earth and uncovering stories that have an environmental impact. The latest adventure heads off to a remote region in the Moroccan Sahara that is home to the Hanabou oasis, a small village that is part of the bigger Tafilet oasis which is considered to be one of the largest in the world. Now, Oasis Life – Defying the Desert provides you with a unique look at culture and people that have adapted to life in very harsh conditions. However, climate change is beginning to threaten the water supply and every aspect of their existence hangs in the balance. Magnificent footage and insightful interviews help you to understand the fragile yet beautiful simplicity of life in the desert from the traditional Bedouin nomads who today yearn for the ancient freedom of the desert to the tourism economy dependent on the 200,000 annual visitors to the majestic Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Don’t miss out on this inspiring and educational multimedia journey.
