THE WELL: WATER VOICES FROM ETHIOPIA

Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 07:30pm
Directed by Paolo Barberi and Riccardo Russo
Documentary / Italy / 2011 56 min/ Oromo with English subtitles. New York Premiere

Each year, when the dry season peaks in Southern Ethiopia, the Borana herders gather with their livestock around the ancient “singing wells.” Young shepherds form human chains, drawing water from the depths of the well. The film introduces us to a unique water-management system that allows the Borana to distribute the scarcity of water as the property and right of everyone.
