The film explores irrigation practices in the oasis and raises some important questions about water security revealing how agricultural developments can be both an opportunity and a possible threat to the rural poor.

The Confluence of Agnack
female producer & researchers [5/6] | green film
Agnack (Senegal) is a place where both rivers and people converge in the most stunning of ways – a place where it is considered perfectly normal to speak a minimum of six languages.
For the first time in history the people of Agnack allowed cameras to film as they prepare for an unforgettable event and capture the mystery surrounding their rituals. Their culture and languages are more threatened now than at any point in its long history due to abrupt changes brought by colonisation, conflict, globalisation and migration. It is the first ever documetary film with a Baïnouk narration uniquely capturing the beauty of the endangered language.
