During the day, they sing

During the day, they sing

directed by:

Véronique Laveau

"Every day, in Senegal, in the Saloum Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage site, many women go to sea. On these islands, where men, for lack of work, deserted to France, Spain or Italy, women became, in spite of themselves, the heads of families. This documentary turns its gaze on the steps of those who chose to stay.
Chaque jour, au Sénégal, dans le Delta du Saloum, classé au patrimoine mondial de l'Unesco, de nombreuses femmes partent en mer pour subvenir aux besoin de leur famille. Sur ces îles, où les hommes, faute de travail, désertent vers la France, l'Espagne ou l'Italie, les femmes deviennent, malgré elles, les chef de famille. Ce documentaire tourne son regard sur les pas de celles qui ont choisi de rester."
