Le Lac: An Immersive journey into Lake Chad

Le Lac: An Immersive journey into Lake Chad

Le Lac is an award-winning VR documentary set in the oasis of the Sahel, Lake Chad. Directed and Written by Nyasha Kadandara, this film is a meditation on the changes that nature is undergoing, with ninety percent of the lake’s water depleted. Depended on by millions, Lake Chad has shrunk to a tenth of her former self. This documentary brings attention to how shifts in nature caused by climate change can lead to political upheaval such as the insurgence of Boko Haram in the central African region. In a journey through change and rupture, as told by the poetic voice of the lake herself, participants explore the lives of Mahamat, a once-wealthy pastoralist, and Nassuri, a fisherman-turned-refugee, as the lake herself hopes for their survival amidst her scattered ponds.

“Le Lac” is a dreamscape where liquid gives way to dust. The oasis of the Sahel, Lake Chad, is not who she used to be. “
