qafila oula

When people talk about caravans we may think they refer to a distant period of time, when caravans crossed the Sahara desert, connecting African countries and even continents. The international conflits and the borders have stopped these communication roads, but we can still find people in Morocco that used to go, for example, to Tombouctou by walk. With Qafila Wahida (that means Caravan Number One), we try to learn more on caravans, travelling the same way they did, but inside de Moroccan borders. It is also a research on nomad life, on architecture, on landscape...
