Encounters on the Milky Way

Extraordinary visual experiences and surprising connections create a mosaic that encompasses Switzerland and the Sahel. Continually shifting perspectives, self-evident links between cows and milk, market and progress, are set in motion. The focus is on encounters with and experiences of cattle breeders and dairy farmers in Burkina Faso, Mali and Switzerland who face the challenges of the modern world with tenacity and imagination.
