BEHIND THE SCENES: PRAYER IN BENIN

April 25, 2010

After shooting for three days in the World Biosphere Reserve of Pendjari, our team went to meet villagers whose lives are directly impacted by the initiatives set in place through AVIGREF, the local associations who are involved with the Reserve’s activities.

That morning, I was on my way to interview Fidel, a woman who participates in the “Logement chez l’Habitant” program. Fidel manages a few rooms behind her home, where she welcomes visitors in search of sustainable travel alternatives.

When I arrived, she was praying, and invited me to join her and her neighbours…so I filmed a few images as a witness to the spiritual rituals of that community.
