The Throbbing desert

Il deserto pulsante
by Marc Innaro, Sandro Vannini Documentary Italia/Italy 2008 44'

Covering ten thousand kilometers in two months of shooting The Trobbing Desert, Innaro and Vannini's documentary paints a broad canvas of Egypt, its ancient customs, out of the way places off the tourist routes, and its problems with accommodating recent economic and social change. From the western desert to the high plain of Gilf-al-Kebir to the Bahariya, Farafra, Dakha and Khargo oases, the ecologic and hydrogeologic risks of these fragile ecosystems are emerging ever more clearly as jeeploads of tourists advance along asphalt roads under the herald of economic and hydrologic conquest.
