AD SPOT - UNDP
In March/April 2016, What Took You So Long? took on a 6 week, 6 country filmmaking journey across West Africa's Sahara Desert. We produced 7 videos for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) about regional resilience, women empowerment, water facilities, and local cooperatives. Our travels through Mali, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso, Mauritania, and Senegal offered a host of challenges from 130 degree heat to navigating rapidly deteriorating security situations.
Along the road, we met dozens of nomadic herders and social entrepreneurs working to better their homes. We stayed in open air tents and (some of us) got malaria.
