A documentary on the way of life of the nomads of the Moroccan Sahara, their customs and traditions, recently broadcast on the second channel of the Spanish public TV “La2”, highlights the oral culture and heritage of thousands of camel herders. Filmed in the heart of the Moroccan Sahara, this documentary traces the long crossing of the desert by the nomads in search of water and food. Enchanted by the beauty of the Moroccan Sahara’s landscapes, the film crew of this documentary, directed by American explorer Richard Wiese, let viewers explore the true relationship between nomads and the Saharan wilderness, their daily camel adventures and their nightly celebrations. Lasting 25 minutes, the documentary highlights the resistance of these nomads in the face of the forces of nature and climate change as well as their efforts to preserve their culture and traditions inherited from their ancestors. It also sheds light on the role of the Saharawi woman in the nomadic family of the Moroccan desert. Entitled “Morocco, the last nomads”, the documentary is an overview to understand and appreciate the daily life of nomads, their major challenges, the vital importance of water in their lives and the place of the tent as a “sacred” space reserved for the family. Through striking images and moving testimonies, “Morocco, the last nomads” reveals the intimacy of the family life of nomads in a harsh climate, often difficult, but which remains marked by the simplicity and mastery of the elements that constitute the nomadic environment.
