Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Soceity]

Banganà shows the life of the Wodaabe nomadic herders through the eyes of two young women: Mooro, a young mother who had her first child, Jumaare, and Mariama, her cousin, a teenager who attends the school at Dakoro, a small town in the heart of Niger. This point of view of two young women takes us along the whole film.

Banganà is the name of the wodaabe village where most of the filming was made. There is a well where the boys and the young men fetch the water which the girls put on the donkeys to take it to the camp. There is the everyday life made of care for the cows and the calves, of grinding the millet, the main food in the dry season, but also of fun. In the afternoon the girls gather together to chat of their life of young women, and in the night they meet to sing and dance together.

Also the girls have their dances. Mariama, after a make-up session, to be even more beautiful, participates to one of them.

The end of the worso is the end of the rainy season too and the Wodaabe have to move to south, to reach their home areas. Jumaare, Mooro’s daughter, is waking up, looking forward, waiting the next rainy season.
