Le Jardin d’Ewald (60 Min/ Senegal).
The disappearance of water, plants and animals from rural Senegal can’t be prevented, calculated or stopped. Or can it? A farmer, artist, gardener and young boy from Senegal have one thing in common: mastering everyday life without water in one of the driest regions on earth. The race for the best strategy for tackling climate change has already begun. A balancing act between tradition and innovation, country life and the lure of the city.
This film follows Senegalese people in rural areas as they try to outwit one of the greatest threats for that region, which is drought due to climate change. It has been shown at film festivals worldwide (Winner Best Documentary Los Angeles Urban Film Festival, Nomination Water for Life Award CMS Vatavaran in New Delhi, Official Selection Mumbai International Film Festival, official selection Ekotopfilm Prague). We are very lucky to secure this film as the one originally scheduled for this slot was, ironically, damaged in the Brisbane floods a few weeks ago.

Part 2: 8:00pm – 9:30pm
