Christophe Leroy and Adrien Camus - 2014 - FRANCE - 52

The inhabitants of Bakadadji, a village located in a Senegalese national park, are trying to fnance fencing to secure their felds from protected species of animals that ruin their crops year after year. In doing so, these farmers are claiming recognition for their rural way of life, to which they are deeply attached. Refecting the village's everyday reality, this flm talks about a meeting that does not actually take place, as well as how we view rural society, whose voice is barely heard.
