Rendala, the Mikea
by Alain Rakotoarisoa
MADAGASCAR, France - 2015 - 62 MINUTES
In the southwest of Madagascar there is a vast dry forest. For centuries, the Mikea have lived there by hunting and gathering. Strongly encouraged by an environmental protection program, drawn to the modern world and the promise of a better future, Rendala left his native forest and the rest of his community to settle with his family a few kilometers away, in the village of Andravitsazo. But five years later, his report is bitter. Neither the water, nor the health center, nor the school are really there. What is he going to do ?
