Abstract:In this documentary, director Herzog went into the drought stricken Sahara to film the Wodaabe, an ancient, nomadic people in Niger. He emphasizes the difference between their culture and ours. He focusses on one tribal ritual: once a year, in what amounts to a beauty pageant, the young men dress up and parade in front of the women. Each woman must then choose and spend the next few nights with the man she finds the most beautiful.
