Equator 360°: The Lying Stars

Nicolas Jolliet

The Gabbra people of the Chalbi desert in northern Kenya still roam the desert with their camels. As the draughts grow longer, these desert nomads know how to manage their resources, and follow the passing of the sun and the moon in the rituals that allows them to predict the rainy season they depend on. But after a 10 year long drought, Barille is wondering if the stars are lying to them.

In collaboration with ASN Bank, we are showing this and two other VR films on the theme of climate change, free of charge on the square in front of Theater aan het Spui.
