Cape Verde Islands of Hope
Documentary // ZDF / ARTE 2005, 45 Min. und 30 Min., Digibeta
The film introduces one of the last remaining paradises in the Atlantic. For the many tourists who visit the islands just west of the Sahel every year it is a paradise lost. For the locals life can be hell while they are waiting yet again for the rain that does not happen.
The film demonstrates complex issues from the virgin nature and the deprivation the locals suffer to how tourism is going to develop on Cape Verde.
