In Herdsmen of the Sun, Herzog records a rare, bright moment for the Wodaabe, a tribe of nomads in the African Sahel. In 1988, the best rains in 60 years brought respite from the region’s chronic drought and long-delayed markets, weddings, and festivals could be held. The Wodaabe consider themselves to be the most beautiful people in the world. At the height of their festival, Wodaabe men adorn and display themselves to be chosen by women in a contest celebrating beauty and love.
