Because this immense land of open plains and robust stony grounds is one of the severest geographies on the planet. Surviving in Sahel is an exercise anchored to life, an invitation to optimism, the palpable demonstration of being and existing, participation in the perverse game of living.

A third of the population of Mauritania lives, directly or indirectly, from artisanal fisheries. Bamba Fall, a unionist fisherman, invites us into the hectic activity of the port of Nouakchott: the tragic stories in the sea of old fishermen, the hard work of fishing gear from blacksmithing, imaginatively recycled materials, the sale of fish by bold women, the education of children by the hand of Imam of the mosque...
