THE WELL Directors Riccardo Russo e Paolo Barberi ¦ Italy ¦ 2011 ¦ 53'53"

The Borana territory extends over the Oromia dry lands of southern Ethiopia. The Borana are shepherds and herdsmen, semi-nomadic people who manage their scarce water supply through communal organisation, ensuring everyone can have access to this resource without any money being exchanged. According to an unwritten rule of well management, nobody can be denied access to the water. The documentary follows the daily life which revolves around the ancient Erder wells, throughout the long dry season until the long-awaited rain comes.
Through interaction with several characters from this place, the film introduces us to a water management system that allows the Borana shepherds to manage the small quantity of available water as the property and right of everyone, in one of the driest inhabited regions in the world.

Screened at more than 90 festivals all over the world, The Well is the Italian most awarded documentary of the year.
