    • Synopsis
    • Live Mauritania is a travel story providing a rare opportunity to explore the natural
      and cultural heritage of a country that is still basically unknown to the Western world.
      Mauritania, the only Saharan country in the Atlantic Ocean, is an Islamic republic
      with an ancient tradition, whose history never ceases to fascinate. Occupied by an
      ever-expanding desert and basically immune to globalization as far as the Western
      standard of threadlike beauty is concerned, Mauritania is a rich land with unparalleled
      environmental wonders and an endless source for anthropological studies.
      Its culture and traditions, profoundly di”erent from what we are accostumed to in
      the West and in other Muslim countries, are well preserved and mainly undiscovered
      to these days, providing an unspoiled point of view upon tradition and social
      clash that quali#es as an unprecedented way to re$ect upon the Western world.
